The Beast of Times is like Portlandia meets the animals from the cartoon The Far Side, but with sexy progressive queer people of color politics!
The Beasts of Times is also a satirical and queer allegory, which explores the contradictions and pains of coming to political consciousness as “Other” in a world where environmental and ethnic diversity are quickly becoming passé.
A work that employs incisive and poignant humor to expose the human love of greed and the human greed for love, Adelina Anthony writes a theatrical work for a new generation of poltico/as with a good measure of ‘throw-back’ ‘movement memory’ thrown in and a queer bent to shape it all.

The Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center
The Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center is a program of the Los Angeles LGBT Center. Our theatres at The Village at Ed Gould Plaza include the Renberg Theatre, a 200 seat state-of-the-art theatre, and the Davidson/Valentini Theatre, a 50 seat black box theatre.
Since 1969 the Los Angeles LGBT Center has cared for, championed and celebrated LGBT individuals and families in Los Angeles and beyond. Today, through our health center, shelters, performance stages and classrooms, we provide services for more LGBT people than any other organization in the world. We are an unstoppable force in the fight against bigotry and the struggle to build a better world; a world in which LGBT people can be healthy, equal and complete members of society.
