Come to the BLOCK PARTY At The Douglas, March - May 2018

Come to the BLOCK PARTY At The Douglas, March - May 2018Center Theatre Group's second annual Block Party highlights some of the remarkable work being done on other stages throughout Los Angeles by fully producing three previously staged productions.

"Bloodletting" follows Farrah and Bosley, two Filipino American siblings who recently lost their father. They arrive on an island called Palawan to scatter his ashes when a typhoon hits and they are forced to seek shelter at a tiny café. The peculiar café owner and his granddaughter share tales of aswangs (witches) with the siblings-that is until Farrah discovers she has a few peculiarities of her own.

From the American Revolution to the global war on terror, from the struggle for civil rights to the fight against communism, "Ameryka" shines a light on the promises and pitfalls of democracy. An ensemble-created piece developed over six years, it showcases Critical Mass Performance Group's kaleidoscopic style of found texts, movement, original music and exuberant spectacle.

"Die, Mommie, Die!" is a campy noir classic that follows the devious actions of aging Hollywood star Angela Arden (played by Drew Droege in drag) who is trapped in an unhappy marriage and plots to kill her husband in order to be with her young lover. When Angela's children learn of her plot and seek revenge, madness ensues in this over-the-top comedy.
