Down to My Last Egg in Broadway DOWN TO MY LAST EGG
Theatre 40
11/19-11/26/2018
Theatre 40 in Beverly Hills welcomes Remy O’Brien’s hilariously heartwarming one-woman show “Down to My Last Egg”, which premiered at the 2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival. When Remy’s window to become a mother started to close, she hit the road in search of a sperm daddy. Once she found him, getting pregnant proved to be even more slippery than his sperm. Her thoughts, ideas and actions around motherhood, and what it entails, left her with one question – Is she meant to be a mother? Did she conceive or did her last egg shrivel up and die? You’ll have to see the show to find out. Remy O’Brien is the writer-performer. Her other stage credits include Questa, The Sun Always Shines for the Cool, and Flowers Out of Season, as well as stand-up and sketch comedy in the Chicago comedy scene. Jonathan Medina directs.

Pagan Century in Broadway PAGAN CENTURY
The Complex Hollywood
11/23-12/2/2018
PAGAN CENTURY, a frenetic and turbulent dark comedy about friendship, politics, and a bizarre family ritual is set for a limited workshop production on Hollywood’s Theatre Row. “You can’t change your past, but you can burn it down.” When twin siblings Maura and Barrett decide to bring their old group of friends back together for one last party before selling their family home to developers, they think they’re just reenacting the last of their peculiar family rituals: a “birthday party” for a pioneer baby buried on the property hundreds of years before. But old friends, betrayals, politics, and alcohol can make for a volatile combination, and before the night is through these old friends realize that this isn’t a party: it’s a wake – for their friendships, their long-held beliefs, and the people they used to be. Set in the college town of Morgantown, West Virginia, this dark comedy deals with the fear, confusion, and anxiety that comes with growing up in this turbulent and uncertain new century, where it seems as if not just the rules, but the games themselves, have all been changed.

The Fountain Theatre

In this gripping, unexpectedly funny Pulitzer Prize-winning play, John is a rich, quick-witted grad student who has cerebral palsy. Ani is an hilariously foul-mouthed quadriplegic.

Finks in Broadway FINKS
Rogue Machine Theatre
11/10-12/30/2018
A New York Times Critic’s Pick, “Finks” was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and Rogue Machine’s West Coast premiere production brings together writer Joe Gilford and director Michael Pressman, both children of the Blacklisted. Joe Gilford shares the struggle his parents, entertainers Jack Gilford and Madeline Lee Gilford, endured when they were called to testify. On the verge of TV stardom, a comic meets an actress/activist, their romance blossoms - as does their risk of being blacklisted for their political activities. The House Un-American Activities Committee, tasked with exposing communist subversion, conducted hearings which lead to more than 300 directors, actors, radios personalities, and screenwriters to be boycotted by studios. Friends were turned against friends, and family. Most who were named never recovered their careers. Those who willingly testify—naming others to the committee—will be branded as "finks." “What is most intriguing is not that the characters chose communism; it’s that they chose to believe in an improved state. They were dreamers who became activists - they understood something was wrong. They understood they had to act or nothing would change. Both Joe Gilford’s FINKS and Tom Morton-Smith’s OPPENHEIMER look at communism in America in the 30s, 40s and 50s. These plays are not about communism but about the universal ideal that we could be better than we are,” says producer John Perrin Flynn. Cast: Daniel Dorr (Victor Lynch, Stanley, Kazan), Thomas Fiscella (Phil Larson, Martin Berkeley, Lee J. Cobb, Budd Schulberg), Matt Gottlieb (Rep. Walter), Stephen Tyler Howell (Sgt. at Arms, Bartender, Announcer, Leading Man), Richard Levinson (poianist), Adam Lebowitz-Lockard (Bobby Ferard), Bruce Nozick (Fred Land), Vanessa Claire Stewart (Natalie Meltzer), and French Stewart (Mickey Dobbs). Joe Gilford (Playwright), Michael Pressman (Director), John Perrin Flynn (Artistic Director/ Producer), Cecila Fairchild (Assistant Director), Stephanie Kerley Schwartz (Scenic Design), Matt Richter (Lighting Design), Christopher Moscatiello (Sound Design), Nick Santiago (Projection Designer), and Halei Parker (Costume Design). Rogue Machine Theatre won the Ovation Award this year for “Best Season” and received, for the second time, the Polly Warfield Award for an Excellent Season from the LA Drama Critics Circle – 2016 and 2011. They were recently recognized with 12 Ovation Award nominations, including one for Best Season and two for Best Production. KCRW’s nod to Best Theatre was a highlight of the 2016 season, as was receiving a Shubert Foundation grant awarded to select theatre organizations for their artistic achievement, administrative strength, and fiscal stability along with the company’s development of new work and other significant contributions to the field of professional theatre in the United States. A recipient of the American Theatre Wing’s 2014 National Theatre Company Grant, given only to 12 theatre companies in the country, Rogue Machine (BEST PRODUCTION for three years – Ovation and LADCC Awards) presents plays that are new to Los Angeles. They recently received support from the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, and the company garnered recognition for their work in upwards of 75 awards and nominations. Finks opens at 3pm on Saturday, November 10th and runs at 8pm Fridays, 3pm Saturdays, 7pm Sundays until December 30th (Exceptions: no performance 11/16 and 12/21. 11/17 show is at 8pm.

A Christmas Story in Broadway A CHRISTMAS STORY
Sierra Madre Playhouse
11/23-12/30/2018
Back in the 1960s, humorist, writer, raconteur and TV and radio personality Jean Shepherd (1921-1999) was the undisputed king of late night radio on the East Coast. His live broadcasts from the Limelight Café in Greenwich Village late on Saturday nights on WOR-AM became appointment listening for millions of fans. (This was a decade before Garrison Keillor and Saturday Night Live made their way onto the airwaves. This was when people still listened to AM radio.) Shepherd told stories. Many of them were suggested by incidents in his own life growing up in Hammond, Indiana. Although his radio shows were unscripted, he eventually began to put his stories into print, adopting a fictional surrogate for himself, Ralphie Parker. They were collected in books, including In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash; Wanda Hickey’s Night of Golden Memories, and Other Disasters; The Ferrari in the Bedroom; and A Fistful of Fig Newtons. In 1983, the movie A Christmas Story was released, based on his first volume. Shepherd wrote the screenplay with Leigh Brown and director Bob Clark, who was best known for the Porky’s trilogy. The film has become something of a classic in its genre. Sierra Madre Playhouse is presenting the stage adaptation of A Christmas Story as its holiday attraction. The Parker family gets its Christmas tree. Ralphie’s dad, The Old Man, wins a very special prize in a contest. Ralphie is pursued by a girl in his class. Ralphie is pursued by the class bully. And, most famously, Ralphie sets off on a campaign to acquire his most-desired Christmas present, a Red Ryder BB air rifle, only to be warned repeatedly, “You’ll put your eye out, kid.”

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. Rogue Machine is located in the Electric Lodge, 1416 Electric Avenue in Venice, CA 90291. Tickets are $40. Reservations: 855-585-5185 or at www.roguemachinetheatre.com

I am Sophie in Broadway I AM SOPHIE
Pacific Resident Theatre
11/17-1/27/2019
Are you living your true self? Filled with philosophie de la vie, humor, and heartache I Am Sophie is a journey of identity. The audience becomes the confidante to Sophie Carter, formerly known as Kate Carter. When she returns to the United States after living in Paris, she has become a changed woman. Now home, to take care of her father, her loved ones meet Sophie for the first time. What follows is an existential adventure. Sophie has us all wondering, am I who I think I am? Directed by Susan Angelo, the piece is written and performed by Corinne Shor. Corinne has appeared on stages globally with a diversity of roles that include works from Shakespeare to Sketch Comedy. Locally, she was seen as May Bee Burley in Verdigris by Jim Beaver at Theatre West, and she has a recurring role as the mysterious Matron on NBC’s The Event, playing opposite Hal Holbrook & Jason Ritter. Corinne's training includes The Theatre School Jacques Lecoq in Paris, The Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin, and Improvisation at Upright Citizens Brigade. She often works as a narrator for young adult audiobooks (Scars of Youth, In my Dreams, The Fairy King). “Who are we? Really. When it’s all stripped away-- the stories, the things that divide us, the beliefs we cling to? Who are we? Finding our voice and power within this human experience is ultimately what matters the most, say director Susan Angelo. I hope this piece becomes an inspiration to the people who see it, and perhaps sparks their inner Sophie.” Pacific Resident Theatre is nationally recognized as one of the top regional theaters on the West Coast.
