by BWW News Desk - Apr 27, 2017

The Music Center today announced the launch of The Music Center On Location, a new initiative that takes the performing arts center's artistic vision beyond the places and spaces of its Downtown Los Angeles home and into diverse venues and locales throughout greater Los Angeles.  With The Music Center On Location, The Music Center will curate and present distinctive artistic content in locations outside its 22-acre campus and bring its innovative, creative approach to the arts to a wider audience.  This program will expand the performing arts center's focus beyond the presentation of the world-class artistic programming it currently offers on the stages of its iconic theatres and outdoor plaza to events and performances outside of its physical footprint.  The Music Center On Location launches this summer with programming at The Ford Theatres (the Ford) and Grand Park, followed by an engagement in the fall at The Culver Studios as part of the performing arts organization's internationally acclaimed Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center series.  (more...)

Set against the backdrop of 1920s Chicago, this touching, whimsical tale explores the impermanence of life and the permanence of love, especially among devoted family members. The 'failure' in the title refers to poor Mortimer's inability to ever marry any of the three sisters after falling in love with them, as the untimely deaths of the three sisters happen before any marriages can take place.
