Nearly 100 national, regional and local performers will join these headliners on eight stages throughout the Summerfest grounds.

“We truly believe PrideFest Milwaukee offers something for every visitor,” said Kate Sherry, festival co-producer. ”This year, we’re thrilled to host a dynamic mix of musical, comedy, and drag performances that reflects the diversity of LGBT culture and community.  We’re honored to have access to such stunning talent—and our showcase continues to grow every day.”

Finally the true story is revealed!

In 1972, a hairdresser from Queens made a little movie that grossed over $600 million and ignited the sexual revolution.

THE DEEP THROAT SEX SCANDAL takes you into the secret world of adult film making and introduces you to the legendary Linda Lovelace and Harry Reems. Follow the bizarre journey from the creation of the movie, to the political fallout of the ensuing courtroom drama.

Richard Dreyfuss, Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson came to the aid of Harry Reems at his court trial in Memphis, Tennessee after he was arrested for being naked in the film.

Directed by Jerry Douglas
Written by David Bertolino

Dustin Lance Black, Lance Bass to appear in San Diego reading of “8”
November 13th, 2012

SAN DIEGO —A one-night only reading of Dustin Lance Black’s play “8” will be staged in San Diego on Monday, Nov. 19, at the Birch North Park Theatre, and include a number of high-profile cast members, including Black, Lance Bass, Bruce Vilanch, San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders and City Councilmember Todd Gloria.

Production & Celebrity Entertainment, with license from the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) and Broadway Impact, will present the reading of “8,” which is a play chronicling the historic trial in the federal constitutional challenge to California’s Proposition 8.

“8” shares an unprecedented account of the Federal District Court trial in Perry v. Schwarzenegger (now Perry v. Brown), the case filed by AFER to overturn Proposition 8, which stripped gay and lesbian Californians of the fundamental freedom to marry.

Black, who penned the Academy Award-winning feature film “Milk” and the film “J. Edgar,” based “8” on the actual words of the trial transcripts, first-hand observations of the courtroom drama and interviews with the plaintiffs and their families.

The San Diego reading of “8” will begin at 7:30 pm on Monday, Nov. 19, and net proceeds will benefit AFER.

Cast members scheduled to appear include: Lance Bass (NSYNC), Richard Dreyfuss (Academy Award winner), Annette O’Toole (Academy Award nominee, TV’s “Smallville”), Bruce Vilanch (Emmy Award-winning comic, “Hollywood Squares”), as well as San Diego’s best local talent.

Well-known San Diegans such as City Councilmember Todd Gloria will read the part of Judge Vaughn Walker and Lisa Sanders will read the part of Court Clerk.

The play will be directed by San Diego Theatre Critics Circle award winner Brian Wells.

Immediately following the reading, there will be a short talk back session featuring marriage equality advocates including Black, Sanders and other special guests.

Tickets start at $19.50 and are available through the Birch North Park Theatre box office at 619-239-8836 or online.

A limited amount of VIP tickets will be available for $75 each, and include preferred seating and access to a 6 pm “Meet and Greet” with the cast and special guests.
