This work in progress showing of "Sleeping Beauty and the Beast" is a chance to see the culminating stage of our development during our 2 year residency at BAX of this epic, two-act Ballez before next Spring's premiere, and to offer your insights, vision and feedback!
"Sleeping Beauty & The Beast" is a two-act, two-theater "Ballez," united by a participatory, time-shifting street protest march, that glorifies the stories of lesbian activists: the striking Lower East Side garment workers of 1893, and the AIDS activist dykes of the same neighborhood in 1993.
