Derek Klena, Shoshana Bean and More to Reopen The Bourbon Room in Hollywood

The Bourbon Room Hollywood is reopening this July with a new audacious lineup up of shows, concerts, and artists, across a variety of genres, including an innovative partnership with For The Record Live that features the 10th anniversary production of Tarantino Live and a live concert series. Originally built for global sensation Rock of Ages, The Bourbon Room has reinvented itself for 2021 with a whole new swagger.

"The Bourbon Room Hollywood combines the best of LA theater, nightlife and that rock and roll attitude that built the Sunset Strip. If Joe's Pub and The Troubadour had a baby it would be the Bourbon Room," said Matthew Weaver, Owner of The Bourbon Room. "After a year of no live performances, we wanted to reopen with shows across genres but highlighting the best of what Los Angeles theater can be."

The party starts at The Bourbon Room with a series of limited run live concerts shows featuring some of the most distinctive talent working in theater today.

For The Record's Tarantino Live will launch its 10th Anniversary production in August with an open-ended run at The Bourbon Room's theater. Produced by Shane Scheel with The Bourbon Room's Scott Prisand, For the Record Live is a breakthrough, genre-bending form of live entertainment turning the soundtracks of iconic films into thrilling immersive theatrical experiences. The For the Record Live experiences is not your classic movie-based musical, but a new kind of character-driven concert where some of cinema's most beloved stories and the songs forever linked to those films mix and mash together in inspired and surprising ways.

Directed by Anderson Davis, For The Record Live: Tarantino is a rock 'n' soul concert that brings to life Tarantino's cinematic universe led by an Emmy Award winning design team. It's a spiderweb of hitmen, gangsters and assassins slaying vinyl classics like - "Son of a Preacher Man," "Stuck in the Middle With You," "Bang Bang," and many more - to create a genre-defying musical tribute to the genre-defying director. This incarnation is led by a quintet of superheroines inspired by the powerful women of Tarantino's dysfunctional family tree. Straight out of a Tarantino's graphic novel, these women battle "The Tyranny of Evil Men" as "THE FOX FORCE FIVE."

Previews for For The Record Live: Tarantino will begin on August 5th and open on August 11th. Tickets are presented by Fever and are available at
