Evolve Theatre, a new theatre company whose mission is to create positive social change through theatre, is making its debut on March 18 at the Long Beach Playhouse. Evolve is producing a new play about the Transgender community, called Choosing Us*.
The show is coming to the United States for the first time, and what better place to premiere than in Long Beach? CSULB's Carpenter Performing Arts Center will feature the show Sunday, September 20th for the local Cambodian diaspora and other audiences to enjoy.
The Center of Long Beach and the Art Theatre are holding the 22nd annual Long Beach Q Film Festival Thursday through Sunday, in an event catered to one of the largest LGBTQ communities in California. The films at the festival are not available on DVD and are not screening at major theaters.
No people of color were nominated in the four acting categories, nor were there any for Best Director. Voicewaves spoke with diverse artists, actors and filmmakers from Long Beach about the Oscars, the lack diversity in film, and opportunities for change.
