And in other “Theatre” news, there will be a benefit dinner for Hybrid Theatre Works on Friday, June 11 at Byblos Restaurant. Click on this link ( to buy tickets. According to the organization, “Proceeds will benefit the 2010 Hybrid Theatre Works summer workshops for youth and refugee populations in Amman, Jordan and Cairo, Egypt. Hybrid Theatre Works takes peace and diplomacy beyond recognizing and respecting other cultures to direct engagement with the community to teach, through theatre and cultural diplomacy, important life skills such as confidence, communication, tolerance, proactive thinking, collaboration and team building.”

Given these theatres’ admirable missions, let’s show our support for the arts by checking ‘em out and, if you do, feel free to share your thoughts here!

Tabouli wishes and fattouche dreams,
