Everett Quinton

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. Expertly navigating melodrama and satire, GALAS paints a hilarious yet honest portrait of a deeply-troubled diva from the days of her highest praise to the last spent in lonely despair.  Tickets are $25 and are available online at galas.brownpapertickets.com.

In the mid-Twentieth Century, when naturalistic conventions and societal preconceptions dominated the theatre, Ridiculous Theatrical Company came along and rocked the New York stages with critically acclaimed  radical, gender-bending, yet classic and bold, theatrical works. As New York City gears up to welcome the world to simultaneously commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall uprisings and celebrate World Pride, Theatre at St. John’s hails the return of legendary actor, director, playwright, and designer Everett Quinton to its stage in this production. An icon of New York theatre, West Village history, and LGBTQ+ culture, Everett Quinton brings to life one of the world’s most demanding artists in this uproarious combination of pop culture and high art.

Joining Everett Quinton in the title role are Shane Baker, Beth Dodye Bass, Maude Lardner Burke, Géraldine Dulex, Mark Erson, Christopher Johnson, and Jenne Vath.
