Ryan Murphy hopes Hollywood can take down anti-LGBT politicians with new organization

Ryan Murphy is probably the biggest producer of LGBT appealing content on television. His series Glee had a big impact of LGBT youth with its storylines as did his American Horror Story. His latest, Pose, is a groundbreaking look at the transgender community. So it's no wonder that he wants to do something about anti-LGBT politicians. 

Theater Review: "Waitress"

Theater Review: “Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley”

Performances are Thursday at 7:30 pm., Friday at 8 pm;  Saturday at 3 and 8 pm; Sunday at 2 pm

Theater Review: “This Beautiful City”

“This Beautiful City” plays through December 16, 2018, at Diversionary Theatre, 4545 Park Boulevard in University Heights.

Aaron C. Finley as Mike Randolf, Kaylin Hedges as Ellie Randolf, and Liana Hunt as Jessie Randolf in Clint Black's Looking for Christmas, running November 11 – December 31, 2018 at The Old Globe.

It’s that time of year when theaters dust off their Christmas-themed shows for holiday theatergoers.

This year, The Old Globe offers something different, with a country/western twang: the world premiere of the stage version of superstar/songwriter Clint Black’s 1995 holiday album “Looking for Christmas.”
