South Coast Repertory has announced its upcoming shows, January through April 2014. Details below!


Jan. 5-26 - Julianne Argyros Stage

Trudy and Max in Love
by Zoe Kazan

Directed by Lila Neugebauer
On rare occasions, you meet someone and everything clicks. But is love a choice? Or does it just happen? Trudy writes young adult fiction; Max is a novelist of celebrity status. And their attraction is anything but convenient. This very funny take on an unconventional romance is the latest from the multi-talented Zoe Kazan. A playwright/screenwriter/stage and screen actor on a roll, she's the author and star of the hit indie film, Ruby Sparks, praised by The New York Times as "beautifully written and acted." This play is an SCR commission.

Tickets: Prices start at $22

Dates: Previews: Jan. 5-9; regular performances Jan. 11-26.

Show times: Tuesday-Sunday evenings at 7:45 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.

Jan. 16-19 - Nicholas Studio

Presented by Hindsight Studio Productions

Studio SCR

"Ever have one of those dreams where nothing comes out when you try to scream?" The fatal Riverside police shooting of Tyisha Miller, which made national headlines in 1998, gets re-imagined through the powerful lens of hip-hop theatre. Using beatboxin', spoken word and dance, two actors depict the inner life and death of 19-year-old Myeisha Mills. As 12 bullets rip through her body, Myeisha shares the memories of her life - the pleasures of softball, food, movies, kissing - with humor, beauty and pitch-perfect hip-hop rhyme.

Tickets: Tickets are $15 for a low-priced February 13 preview; $25 general admission for February 14-16. Students are $15.

Show times: Thursday evening at 7 p.m.; Friday-Saturday evenings at 8 p.m.; and Saturday-Sunday matinees at 3 p.m.

Jan. 24-Feb. 23 - Segerstrom Stage

The Light in the Piazza
book by Craig Lucas
music and lyrics by Adam Guettel
based on the novel by ElizaBeth Spencer
Directed by Kent Nicholson

Filled with sunshine, light as a summer breeze, this exhilarating musical follows the Italian travels of Margaret Johnson and her stunningly beautiful daughter, Clara. When a dashing young Italian captures Clara's heart, Margaret is compelled to reveal the secret about her daughter. Even as she struggles with concern about Clara's future, she must decide whether or not to release her hold-and bravely give the young lovers her blessing. Early in his career, playwright Craig Lucas found a home at SCR, which produced five of his plays in five years. Now he returns for the 50th Season with this award-winning play boasting one of the most celebrated scores of the decade by Adam Guettel, grandson of the iconic composer Richard Rodgers.

Tickets: Prices start at $25

Dates: Preview: Jan. 24-30; regular performances: Feb. 1-23.

Show times: Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.; Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
