A razor-sharp, darkly comic drama about ambition, office warfare and pecking orders by MacArthur “genius” grant recipient Branden Jacobs-Jenkins.

Santa Monica Playhouse
10/21-10/21/2018
Through story and song, actor/musician Jeremy Ebenstein takes audiences through his humorous, inspiring, yet often heartbreaking story of living a life with Asperger's Syndrome. With eight original songs and compositions, Ebenstein addresses universal issues like childhood bullying, hopeful romance, and overcoming depression. He offers his unique take on the struggles of everyday life, from relationships, to being able to hold down the simplest of jobs, yet always striving towards his dreams of being accepted and living a successful life. Pain In My Asperger's is a story of optimism and love, not only for those suffering from Asperger's Syndrome who need to overcome the additional challenges that Asperger's presents, but for all who hope and dream of making something of themselves. Accompanied by Luke Stanley. The piece was developed with Jack Fry (Einstein!, They Call Me Mister Fry), in the Jack Fry Solo Workshops, in collaboration with Debra Ehrhardt (Jamaica Farewell, Cock Tales) as creative consultant. Los Angeles based guitarist and composer, Luke Stanley began playing guitar at age five. Since then he has played throughout the Midwest with his own bands, and with Tonos Triad where he plays a classical guitar. His original music blends Classic Rock, Eighties Metal and Shred with a modern twist.

5-Star Theatricals
10/19-10/28/2018
Another top-notch musical from 5-Star Theatricals!! Based on the contemporary fairy-tale book and the animated film it inspired, "Shrek the Musical" uses an all-new score to expand on the movie’s original story. There’s a lot for the eyes and ears to ogle over in true 5-Star fashion: spectacular sets, innovative scene changes, puppets of all sizes, plus a very large and energetic cast and a professional full live orchestra! Like the movie, there are pop-culture references galore and plenty of laughs, many that involve bodily noises. That might be a turn-off for some, but there’s also a traditional happy ending and a great finale that will have you dancing in your seats!

Rose Petals and Ashes in Broadway ROSE PETALS AND ASHES
Santa Monica Playhouse
10/28-10/28/2018
ROSE PETALS AND ASHES (formerly "The Brick") is one man's adventure through baseball, cockfighting, Russian Soldiers, The Berlin Wall, alcoholism, drug addiction, stealing Steve Martin, attempted murder, actual murder, mint & chip ice cream, mother and son, heaven and hell, three nuns, two crows, one guitar and finally, redemption. Featuring 10 original songs. "A tremendously moving show, disguised as an evening of comic songs. the burdens of childhood, how one moves forward with an emotionally absent parent, the struggle to assemble the broken pieces through art; all this plus the sensibility of the great music/comics: Stan Freberg, Dave Frishberg, Tom Lehrer, The transparent, soul-baring book mixed in with the elegantly-crafted and laugh-out-loud music create an evening that provides everything you'd want in an evening of theater, pared down to its essence. Immediate and long-lasting Standing Ovation the night I went. Impossible to recommend this strongly enough." Better Lemons.com "As an actor, Berry is naturally open and vulnerable. As a musician, he flies. At this performance, the audience was so acutely tuned to his energy I don't even think they realized they were singing softly along with him on "Two Crows," a haunting song about the wisdom of age. That kind of organic connection is something that cannot be manufactured and I found it to be incredibly powerful. It helps that he knows how to write a song with a hook that stays with you even after you've left the theater. You'd be crazy to miss it the next time he presents it in LA. " Broadway World.com For adults and children 14 and up. Written and performed by Bill Berry. Directed by Kelly DeSarla. Called the “Quentin Tarantino of Folk Music”, snazzy, sketchy, sharp-witted singer/songwriter Bill Berry writes story songs which cheerfully celebrate the car wreck lifestyles of those fumbling with love’s ruins and lighting small fires on big castaway islands of hope. Bill’s latest album Awkward Stage ( "an instant classic!" - Blitz Magazine) recently contended for the Best Comedy Album Grammy. Bill’s songs have been featured on Conan, Samantha Bee and Dr. Demento. This is his fourth play. Kelly DeSarla made her directorial debut at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival with The Brick. Her performance in Henry Jaglom’s “Train to Zakopané” won Kelly a 2014 Last Straw Award. She can be seen as a series regular in the soon to be released virtual reality series, “Defrost,” directed by Randal Kleiser, which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Kelly is a trained classical flutist and performs regularly in Harriet Schock’s band. Presented by The BINGE Fringe Festival of Free Theatre.

The Dogs Pond in Broadway THE DOGS POND
Whitefire Theatre
10/7-10/28/2018
After serving in the Iraq war, Carter’s brother, Owen, has been withdrawn and mute. In the hopes of getting the brother he once knew back, Carter invites two of Owen’s service buddies, Bergsey and Stills, to join them for a weekend with their Uncle Pete, a Vietnam veteran, at their family cabin on the shores of The Dogs Pond in Maine. Upon their reuniting, these fellow soldiers revert to their usual boys will be boys antics of raucous ribbing, boozing, toking, fisticuffs and spirited chiding. As Carter listens to their crazy tales from the sandbox, he naively believes his plan is foolproof and that all’s well that ends well. But, try as he might, his efforts go awry when he is forced to bear witness to the never-ending hidden and visible atrocities of war. The idyllic tranquility and male revelry is only a veiled respite from war’s inescapable aftermath. To overcome the battlefield’s wrath, the only thing that this band of brothers can do is just keep holding on.

SILENCE! The Musical in Broadway SILENCE! THE MUSICAL
Bucket List Theatre (at the Let Live Theatre at The Actors Company)
10/11-11/3/2018
SILENCE! THE MUSICAL The Unauthorized Parody of The Silence of the Lambs Music & Lyrics by Jon Kaplan & Al Kaplan, Book by Hunter Bell ?Adapted from the screenplay “Silence! The Musical” by Jon & Al Kaplan SILENCE! The Musical is a bawdy tribute to the iconic film "The Silence of the Lambs". Rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, to catch serial killer Buffalo Bill. Clarice faces her own demons while racing the clock to unlock Lecter’s clues before another innocent girl is killed and skinned by Buffalo Bill. This laugh-out-loud naughty satire features a chorus of singing and dancing lambs, Buffalo Bill gleefully dancing a hoedown while kidnapping hapless Catherine Martin and even Dr. Lecter singing about the life he’d like to lead outside the prison walls.  Fueled by a rabid cult following after the songs debuted online in 2002, SILENCE! was expanded into a live stage show and shattered every box-office record at the 2005 FringeNYC Festival. Combining whip-smart dialogue and shocking songs, this comedic musical parody is sure to be popular with seasoned fans of the movie and FBI rookies alike. After winning the 2005 NYC Fringe’s Best Musical Award, it was listed in Time Magazine's 2011 Top 10 Plays & Musicals, and won the 2012 Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Musical and the 2012 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Musical Score.

Villainy in Broadway VILLAINY
Whitefire Theatre
10/10-11/7/2018
Just in time for the Halloween season, Villainy, or H.H. Holmes’ Own Story arrives at the Whitefire Theatre. It’s the incredible true story of H.H. Holmes (1861-1896), America’s first serial killer. Born Herman Webster Mudgett, his favored alias was H.H. Holmes, reportedly assuming the name in tribute to the fictional master of mystery, Sherlock. A master seducer of women, Holmes was ultimately married to three women simultaneously. His many crimes included arson, insurance fraud, torture and murder. He confessed to 27 murders in a memoir, written in a response to a lucrative offer from newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst. Having received training in the medical profession, Holmes sometimes dissected the bodies of his victims, selling their skeletons to medical schools. In the most brazen portion of his career, Holmes had a “murder castle” with a pharmacy, a torture chamber, apartments for young women who disappeared mysteriously…all just three miles east of the Columbian Exposition (the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair), giving rise to Holmes’ nickname, “the Devil in the White City.” Villainy is the story of a master of evil, and of the women he loved and manipulated.

Mined from the true stories of people in the New York neighborhood where he lived, writer/activist Robert Galinsky presents a unique perspective of life on the streets through five homeless characters whose lives become forever entwined. With brutal honesty and humor, the story makes it alarmingly clear that so many of us are just one mistake away from joining this underserved and growing population. “Simultaneously historical and street-level contemporary, it’s a wake-up call on a very visceral level," says director Jay O. Sanders. “Robert’s POV is from the inside, a place that most of us have never been.” Robert Galinsky is an activist and theatre artist with numerous credits as a writer, poet, and educator. He is head speaker coach for TEDxTeen and TEDxFultonStreet.

Most recently, at the Cherry Lane Theater in New York, Robert debuted in The Bench, A Homeless Love Story. Selected stage credits include the roles of Joshua & Cathy in Cloud Nine, and Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet in New Haven Connecticut's "Free Shakespeare on The Green." He teaches writing and performance to incarcerated youths at Rikers Island Jail, works with homeless through the non-profits City Kids and Hearts of Gold and is a founding team member of the We Are Family Foundation and Nile Rodger's "Three Dot Dash" international peace initiative. He is a member of the Creating WE Institute, the Dramatist Guild, Drama League, and Screen Actors Guild, volunteering at Trinity Homeless Services, the Lollipop Theater Network, IMPACT Repertory Theater in Harlem, and the Kite at Rikers Island Jail. Directed by Jay O. Sanders, the creative team includes producer Terry Schnuck (Tony Award Winner Spring Awakening; produced Fun Home, You Can’t Take It With You, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical & more), presenter Chris Noth (Golden Globe Noms for his role as Peter Florrick opposite Julianna Margulies on the CBS drama The Good Wife, and for Mr. Big on HBO's series Sex and the City - Best Actor), presenter Barry Shabaka Henley (OBIE and Drama Desk Awards - Best Ensemble; won the NAACP Image Award for Rabbit Foot), Audio Designer Deep Singh (A. R. Rahman/Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Bombay Dreams, Twyla Tharp’s musical Come Fly Away, Mira Nair’s musical Monsoon Wedding, composing music for the prime minister of India Anthem of Us which debuted at Madison Square Garden), and Set Design/Illustrations/Bench Graphic Novel Artist Daphne Arthur (Recipient of the Anne Critz fellowship, The Ald Held Fellowship at the American Academy of Rome and the MassMoca Artist in Residence; MFA from Yale and BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Cal in Camo in Broadway CAL IN CAMO
VS. Theatre
10/13-11/9/2018
Presented by James Roday’s Red Dog Squadron and VS. Theatre Company Written by William Francis Hoffman / Directed by Amy K. Harmon Do wounds from the past irrevocably impact our capacity to connect? Lyrical and mysterious, Hoffman’s play probes the nature of bonding in family relationships and beyond. With heart aching humor, he explores the revelations we all resist when overcoming the obstacles we must conquer. Biblical, apocalyptic, and beautiful, the play offers characters who yearn to overcome economic turmoil, environmental detriment, and domestic unrest. Be prepared for a flood of the heart. “Hoffmann’s expressive writing style evokes a nature versus nurture apparition that haunts the modern, American Midwest. The play illumines themes reminiscent of Sam Shepherd, with the suburban undertones of a Gregory Crewdson photograph,” says Co-Artistic Director James Roday. "There is a wild poetry afoot here; bringing to the forefront the expectations we put on ourselves, our families, our relationships, our children," says director Amy K. Harmon. "It’s like a primal pulse that develops into a tome, animalistic yet delicate, about fighting for ones individual survival while trying to save the pack.” Playwright William Francis Hoffman recently completed his latest full-length play, Drift, which will receive its first workshop at Palm Beach Dramaworks in January. His play Cal in Camo received its world premiere in May of 2016 at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in New York City. He was a member of the Rivendell Theatre Ensemble in Chicago, Illinois and is a current member of the Actor's Gym in Los Angeles California, where he resides. William is currently working on a pilot and has outlined the first season. Director Amy K. Harmon helmed the world premiere production of And Then They Fell, by Tira Palquist, and Pack Up The Moon by Christina Cigala for Brimmer Street Theatre Company. For Equity Fights AIDS, she directed Scenes From A Marriage, by Michael Rex, and A Poster of the Cosmos by Lanford Wilson. On stage at Rogue Machine she played Sandy in the world premiere of Vince Melocchi’s Nice Things, and has numerous film and TV credits which include a co-starring roles in HBO’s American Splendor, and ABC’s Scandal, Castle, and Inside the Box. The cast includes Tim Cummings as Flynt (3x recipient - LA Drama Critics Circle Award, LA Weekly Award Best Supporting), 2x SAGE Awards.

Underground Theatre Company/6 Players Studio Theatre has not ceased to delight audiences and Jekyll & Hyde is no exception with another immersive and interactive musical while you dine at House of Oliver. Glamorous, sexy and deliciously wicked, Jekyll & Hyde is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s gripping tale of a brilliant mind gone horrifically awry.

An evocative tale of two men – one a doctor, passionate and romantic – the other, a terrifying madman; and two women – one, beautiful and trusting – the other, beautiful and trusting only herself. Both in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret. Featuring a thrilling pop rock score including the unforgettable it, “This Is the Moment” from multi Grammy and Tony nominated Frank Wildhorn and double Oscar and Grammy winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde has mesmerized audiences the world over.

MILF Life Crisis in Broadway MILF LIFE CRISIS
Hudson Mainstage Theatre
10/26-11/17/2018
Stage veteran and Canadian Comedy Award nominee Anne Marie Scheffler brings her acclaimed one-woman live comedy show to Los Angeles! 'MILF Life Crisis' mirrors Scheffler's real-life emotional upheaval: just as she was set to get her post-baby career on track, her husband suddenly asked for a divorce after a decade of blissful marriage. Which of course led to the ensuing mayhem of becoming a single mom needing to rebuild (and juggle) her personal, professional, and dating life. No. Easy. Feat. At its heart, the message behind 'MILF Life Crisis' is "the best is yet to come," which isn't exactly your first thought when you're facing a divorce, worried about your age, and questioning your self-worth. "It’s really an optimistic comedy about love," Scheffler says. "Old love releasing soul contracts, new love that’s just for sex and healing, the true love of your friends, the love of your children, and most importantly, self-love." Anne Marie Scheffler is an award-winning actress, writer, voice artist and comedian. She has created and toured eight one-woman shows across North America. Her fifth show, Not Getting It, was turned into a one-hour comedy special for national Canadian television. (CTV and The Comedy Network.) Anne Marie is a Second City alumna, with a long list of film and television credits. She's also the co-writer and co-star of 'Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody,' which played to sold-out crowds in over 60 cites across The US and Canada, including Montreal's Just For Laughs and L.A.’s Nokia Center. Her live comedy album can be found on iTunes and can be heard on Sirius Radio XM.

This fall, FLAX (France Los Angeles Exchange) is pleased to partner with Tin Flats to present a series of programs focusing on the notions of process and translation—exploring the transition space in which they develop and the actions they offer. On view from Sep 7 - Nov 30, 2018 with an public opening celebration on September 6 from 6-9 p.m., the series of programs oscillate between presence and absence, tangibility and invisibility, bringing together the works of artists from Los Angeles, France and beyond. The group exhibition The Angel’s Share uses a chemical phenomenon of disappearance as a metaphor. Endless Song performance duo is grounded by the shape of the space around the performers’ bodies, making the invisible tangible. The exhibition The Tyranny of Distance navigates between two continents, with all the artists tackling the question of translation in time and space by presenting artworks in both places. These programs are complemented by weekly screenings presented in the parking lot of Tin Flats, which will be transformed into a drive-in theater.

Oppenheimer in Broadway OPPENHEIMER
Rogue Machine Theatre
10/6-12/30/2018
Fascism is spreading across Europe. It’s 1939 and Franco marches on Barcelona. Two German chemists discover the processes of atomic fission. In Berkeley, California, theoretical physicists recognize the horrendous potential of this new science: a weapon that draws its power from the very building blocks of the universe. Ambitious and charismatic, J. Robert Oppenheimer finds himself uniquely placed to spearhead the largest scientific undertaking in all of human history, the Manhattan Project and the creation of the Atomic bomb. Could it bring about an end of World War II, and all wars? “Anyone who knows anything about the Manhattan Project or Oppenheimer has an opinion on it, and him. I wanted to show you the other side,” says playwright Morton-Smith. “I wanted to take a character who seemed so aloof in the history books and show him as a human being. His journey from idealism to cynicism…eventually kind of betraying his younger self.” Written by Tom Morton-Smith and directed by John Perrin Flynn, the cast includes James Liebman, Ryan Brophy, Jason Chiumento, Kenney Selvey, Mark Jacobson, Miranda Wynne, Kirsten Kollender, Brewster Parsons, Zachary Grant, Scott Victor Nelson, Jennifer Pollono, Rachel Avery, Michael Redfield, Dan Via, Ron Bottitta, Brendan Farrell, Landon Tavernier, Brady Richards, Daniel Shawn Miller, Rick Garrison, Marwa Bernstein, Daniel Jordan Booth, Rori Flynn, and Sophie Pollono. Oppenheimer opens at 8pm on Saturday, October 6th and runs at 8pm Saturdays and Mondays, 3pm Sundays through December 30, 2018 (No performances on 10/8, 10/28 at 3pm, 11/12, 11/17, 11/26, 12/1, 12/2, 12/8, 12/9, 12/10, 12/24) with added performances on 10/26, 10/28 at 8pm & 11/2 at 8pm.
