- The Black Sheep Theatre at Village Gate in Rochester will present "Coming Out at the Caffe Cino" July 18-26.

Director Kristy Angevine-Funderburk discussed the production Wednesday on News 8 at Noon.

"Coming Out at the Caffe Cino" incorporates three plays set in the 1960s - "Daddy Violet" by George Birimisa in 1967, "Sex is Between Two People" in 1965 and "The Madness of Lady Bright" in 1964 both by Lanford Wilson.  Angevine-Funderburk said they are all set in the years leading up to the Gay Community uprising at the Stonewall Inn in 1969.  She said Caffe Cino was the birthplace of the "Off-off Broadway Theatre Community" and the modern gay theatre movement.  "Coming Out at the Caffe Cino" celebrates the 50th anniversary of the gay theatre and Caffe Cino.
