Capital Stage Hosts OUT & BOLD GLBT Night April 17 at 7:00 p.m.

Capital Stage, Sacramento's newest professional theatre, is proud to announce the next "Out & Bold" night for the GLBT community on at Capital Stage on Friday, April 17, 2009.

Out & Bold is an opportunity for members and friends of the GLBT community to meet new people, enjoy a drink, and experience Capital Stage's bold, intimate, live theatre. "Out & Bold" will feature pre-show wine reception at 7:00 p.m. aboard the Delta King, followed by a performance of David Mamet's American Buffalo at 8pm. The regular ticket price of $24 includes admission to the show and the pre-show events. Tickets are currently available at the Capital Stage Box Office, 916-995-5464 or online at

In a cluttered, run-down Chicago junk shop, three small-time crooks plot to steal a valuable buffalo nickel. As the heist unravels, the men's frustration and paranoia intensify. This groundbreaking American play weaves humor and menace throughout an emotionally charged struggle for identity and dominance. Capital Stage co-founders, Peter Mohrmann and Jonathan Rhys Williams play the now-famous duo of Donny and Teach and are joined by Capital Stage newcomer, Joseph Baldridge as young Bobby.

The Times called David Mamet "the finest American playwright of his generation" and the New Yorker called Buffalo his "first masterpiece." American Buffalo is directed by Janis Stevens who directed last season's critically acclaimed Capital Stage production, Fool for Love.

American Buffalo contains strong language and is intended for mature audiences.
