When a Priest Marries a Witch, an Artist Talk by Suzanne Bocanegra Starring Paul Lazar
Saturday, July 20 8:00 pm / Tickets $20
Actor Paul Lazar channels artist Suzanne Bocanegra in a unique work that’s part artist’s talk, part performance, part cultural history, and part sound installation. Together (in a way) they tell the story of a priest, an artist, and a young girl in Pasadena, Texas—a story featuring Elvis, abstract expressionism, the Pope, astronauts, the Singing Nun, and, obviously, a witch.
