The OUTwright festival celebrates the LGBTQ contribution to theatre while also serving as an incubator for developing work by or about the LGBTQ community.
OUTwright 2015 will take place for two weeks at The Funhouse Lounge (2432 SE 11th Ave. Portland, OR 97214) June 14-28.
This year the festival's centerpiece is the world premier of a full production of "Under the Influence". "Under the Influence" has a book and lyrics by Ernie Lijoi - currently represented as a lyricist on the Broadway stage with "It Should Have Been You" (which has been nominated for a Outer Critics Circle Award for best score.)
OUTwright is also excited to present a new musical workshop "Oso Fabuloso and the Bearbacks" by returning playwright J. Julian Christopher, as well as four other staged readings during the festival.
