The Bowery Theatre has officially parted ways with acting artistic director Ginny-Lynn Safford and is now gearing up for the West Coast premiere of "Safe Sex," the new play by Tony award-winning Harvey "Torch Song Trilogy" Fierstein on Feb. 11 for a six-week run.

San Diego Repertory Theatre veteran Tavis Ross, most recently seen as Scrooge in the Rep's "A Christmas Carol," will direct. The show, which is about acquired immune deficiency syndrome, will add a special Wednesday night performance to its Thursday-Sunday schedule to benefit one of two local AIDS organizations--"wherever the need seems greatest," said the Bowery's stage manager, Kathy Hansen.
