George Zander Candlelight Vigil and March

Join us to reflect, remember, and stand up against hate violence around the world. 

We will join in memory of all victims of hate crimes and remember George Zander on the 2nd anniversary of the day he and Chris Zander were attacked in downtown Palm Springs. George died on December 10, 2015. 

On the anniversary of the attack we will gather to reflect. Help us carry forward the social justice efforts that defined George Zander’s life and honor his memory so that no other individual falls victim to a crime of hate. We must remain determined to change hate, intolerance, and ignorance into love and acceptance.

The vigil will begin on La Plaza, in front of Grand Central, and features a rally and march through the heart of Palm Springs. We will never forget. 
Join us and community sponsors as we speak out against hate.  More Info

CVRep's Venus in Fur Reviewed by Stephen Radosh


VENUS IN FUR, the beautifully written play by David Ives is a fascinating and engrossing, if slightly enigmatic, two character (or is it 4 character?) play.  In a tantalizing mix of comedy, suspense and heated eroticism, VENUS IN FUR feels even more relevant today than when it opened on Broadway in 2011.  Skillfully directed by Ron Celona, this play which focuses on the power of eroticism and the erotic nature of power, manages the frequent shifts in tonality so well that each change, no matter how sudden, feels absolutely right.   Read the Review
