BEHOLD! MICHAEL KEARNS – wet hankies
June 30 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$15.00 - $20.00
Michael Kearns has assembled a cast of Los Angeles stalwarts to summon the diverse stories that wet hankies will enliven —Wanda-Lee Evans, Dean Howell, Dale Raoul, Dave Trudell—stories from Kearns’ canon as well as from work that Kearns has directed at Highways. In addition to selections from his greatest hits (intimacies, Robert’s Memorial), Kearns’ will premiere new monologues that attempt to link his artistic development over three decades on the Highways stage to the roller coaster politics of LGBTQ America—“without once using the word ‘journey,’” he promises.
This autobiographical piece celebrates Kearn’s thirty year engagement at Highways. Included in the opening season of Highways was intimacies, Kearns’ landmark theatrical outpouring of HIV/AIDS’ secrets told by a cast of six outliers. Michael Kearns and company close Highways’ two-month long birthday celebration.
