Two one act musicals take varied looks at romance seekers. The first is a delightful romp through the sexual ennui of turn of the century Vienna based on Schnitzler’s tale The Little Comedy. Act 2 is a modern look at affection and disaffection in a two couple summer house in the Hamptons based on the Jules Renard play Summer Share.

OutBook Club & Mixer
Beginning in January, Desert Outlook magazine launches OutBook Club, supported by the Palm Springs Cultural Center, Just Fabulous and the Palm Springs Public Library. Join Desert Outlook book critic and columnist J. Corbett Holmes to discuss each month’s selection. Each book selection will be announced the previous month in the magazine. The OutBook Club will meet the third Tuesday of each month.
To join OutBook, simply pick up and read the first selection, “Dragon at the Edge of a Flat World: Portraits and Revelations,” by opera singer and first-time author Joseph Keckler. Akin to David Sedaris’ work, this diverse essay collection of multi-faceted character studies offers a plethora of clever and queer observations on everyday life.
