The first ever revival of Charles Ludlam’s production of GALAS, starring and directed by Everett Quinton is being presented in celebration of Stonewall 50 and World Pride. GALAS will play a limited engagement from June 13th through June 28th at the Theatre at St. John’s (81 Christopher Street), a stone’s throw from the Stonewall Inn and the play’s original home, Ridiculous Theatrical Company. In this madcap production of GALAS, Everett Quinton portrays opera diva extraordinaire Maria Magdalena Galas (rhymes with Callas) and once and again storms into the West Village with style, flair, and a whole lot of high comedy. From her dramatic star turns in opera houses around the world to her turbulent off-stage antics, Maria Magdalena Galas is a force to be reckoned with.

It’s Friday morning, first period at Senior Secondary School in Trinidad and Omega is pregnant. Through “ritual” portrayals of the world around them her friends, five students, come to understand that the real key to empowerment lies within them. The play is highly stylized—each actor plays one of the girls as well as members from their community—lecherous taxi drivers; sanctimonious bourgeois; attractive Rasta boys; pompous judges and frightened parents.
New Perspectives Theatre Company and Banana Boat Productions are reprising their acclaimed production of this ground-breaking play to celebrate its 40th Anniversary. It earned Mr. Constance both fame and notoriety when it was cut from Trinidadian national television in 1979 in mid-broadcast due to its themes, and the characters' treatment of the societal forces that work
