Such Sweet Sorrow in Broadway SUCH SWEET SORROW
Fox Performing Arts Center
2/20-2/21/2018
The purpose of this production is to inspire youth to learn and know Shakespeare, and be an aide to memorizing his text, through song. "S3" is the entire Balcony Scene, sung verbatim start to end. This newest version and workshop performance is performed by all high school actors! A musical adaptation of the famous “Balcony Scene” from Romeo & Juliet, “Such Sweet Sorrow” is the name of our fictitious singing competition show, a la The Voice or American Idol, with the teenage contestants up for the roles of Romeo and Juliet, who will star in the upcoming Broadway smash hit, “Romeo and Juliet Rocks!”, a rock-pop opera. The contestants “battle-sing” each other using the verbatim Shakespeare words from start to end, taking turns getting eliminated until the final Romeo & Juliet is revealed. Then we get a sneak peak into what the real Broadway production would look like, complete with opening Prologue “Two Households, both alike in dignity...” There’s even a [few] budding on-set romances, to mirror our Romeos & Juliets here in 2018. The show’s themes focus on identity, social interaction, friendly competition, belonging, community, and of course, young love, and with a spotlight on their talent. Paired with some surprisingly catchy “tunes”, “Such Sweet Sorrow”, is a fast-paced musical ride that should be classic “edutainment” fun! This will be the first time the evolving Workshop of Such Sweet Sorrow is performed by actual high school students, or rather, very close to the intended age ranges of Romeo and Juliet. We expect that the nature of many schools being involved will break down walls and rivalries, and bring the arts and theatre students, (those who display extreme potential, passion and discipline for their craft) together to form valuable and lasting bonds as they move forward into their lives and become a strong network to each other. "Such Sweet Sorrow" (by William Shakespeare and Chris Wade) is being presented by the Riverside Unified School District as their inaugural Honors Theatre Program, with special thanks to the City of Riverside, Live Nation and the Fox Performing Arts Center. "S3" will play one full performance at The Fox at 10am on Wednesday Feb 21st for 1500 students (Middle-High Schools) in the RUSD. This free performance is also open to the public, with limited seating available. There is also another free performance that night (Wed Feb 21st) at 7pm at John W. North Little Theatre in Riverside. www.chriswademusic.com/such-sweet-sorrow   Chris Wade - Composer/Book Writer Michelle Grotness - Director Dominique Simone - Choroeographer Annemarie Guzy - Curator/Producer, RUSD Janie Hilland - Conductor/Music Superviser Patricia Scarborough - Shakespeare Coach/Costumes Anna Hightower - Theatrical Facilitator Chris MarkerMorse - Theatrical Facilitator   CAST: Romeos & Juliets: Arianna Vila Cameron Webb Tessa McCormick Kenson Gomez Gabriela Anger Avery Hansberger Julianne Westbrook Eric Bruno Veronica Driscoll Greg Aguilar Kaiah Costa Jamien Brown Caroline Younglove Yair Pineda Mia Prisco   Dancers/Ensemble: Gilbert Blackston Nathan Bravo Jordyn O’Rourke Jose A.

Off the Top Improv Cabaret World Tour in Broadway OFF THE TOP IMPROV CABARET WORLD TOUR
Upstairs At Vitello's
2/25-2/25/2018
An entire cabaret, made up on the spot? Who does that?!" A man, a band, completely unplanned. Television and Broadway veteran Jason Kravits pulls off one of the most hilarious, spontaneous, precarious evenings of cabaret you're likely to see – for one night only. Backed by the most daring band in the business, Kravits invents an entire life story in song —music, lyrics, stories, characters— completely from scratch, based solely on audience suggestions. Every song, every story, every moment of OFF the TOP! is entirely made up, based on audience suggestions. It’s the show of a lifetime. Every time. The highly-acclaimed evening of improvised music and comedy kicks off its 2018 World Tour at The Duplex in NYC, before heading off to shows in Los Angeles, London, Washington, D.C. and Adelaide, Australia. Winner of a 2017 Bistro Award for musical comedy, the show has been featured twice on Sandra Bernhard’s SiriusXM show “Sandyland Live” as well as Slate.com podcast “The Gist with Mike Pesca.” Last year, the show played to sold-out audiences at The 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where guest performers included ‘Whose Line’s’ Mike McShane and recording artist Michelle Shocked. To learn more, visit http://www.offthetop.nyc ‘Hilarious!’ - The New York Times ‘Brilliant!’ - TheFrontRowCenter.com ‘Witty, wacky and wonderful!’ - Cabaret Scenes ‘I have not laughed as much, or as heartily, in a cabaret in a very long time.  I cannot recommend it highly enough.’ - BistroAwards.com Jason Kravits has been appearing on stage and on screens large and small for over 30 years. Perhaps best known for his long-running role as Richard Bay on ABC’s The Practice, he has had recurring roles on The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Madam Secretary, Smash, The Michael J. Fox Show, Royal Pains, and Dallas, as well as unforgettable turns on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Young Sheldon, The Mick, Kevin Can Wait, Hot in Cleveland, Grey’s Anatomy, Masters of Sex, Raising Hope, 30 Rock, Gilmore Girls, Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond and more. Film credits include Chinese Puzzle, The Stepford Wives, Sweet November, Morning Glory, and What Just Happened. On Broadway, Kravits made a splash with his work in the hit musical comedy, The Drowsy Chaperone. Other stage credits include Sly Fox and most recently, Relatively Speaking, three original one-acts by Ethan Coen, Elaine May, and Woody Allen. Kravits is a founding member of The Rumble in the Red Room writing collective, as well as the improv troupe Erasable, Inc., and he is a member of the Actors Center Workshop Company.  Contact Jason Kravits at jaskrav@gmail.com or 310-717-5973 for more information.

The Dialectic of the Stars in Broadway THE DIALECTIC OF THE STARS

2/11-2/25/2018
Los Angeles, CA, December 7, 2017—FLAX (France Los Angeles Exchange) is pleased to announce The Dialectic of the Stars, a series of video, performance, and music-based programs, to be showcased at iconic Los Angeles venues in February 2018 before heading to Paris later in the year. Under the direc-tion of visionary French curator Anna Milone, FLAX has engaged art historian and curator Fabien Danesi, as their Curator-in-Residence to present The Dialectic of the Stars, featuring works by 19 emerging and established French and American artists and collectives. Free and open to all, the pioneering initiative underscores FLAX's mission of promoting mutual understanding between SoCal and France through the arts. Taking place over two weeks from February 11th through 25th—when the nights are long and the lights brighter—the series will draw a constellation of five locales, like points of a star, including The Sowden House on February 11, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) on February 15, Ford Theatres on February 18, L.A. Dance Project (LADP) on February 24 and Zebulon on February 25. FLAX invites the public to enjoy events throughout the city at these popular arts destinations, each blending their pro-gramming with Fabien’s vision to ignite dialogue about L.A. as an important cultural hub. “I’ve followed Fabien’s work for many years and have always been inspired by the unique lens through which he interprets the world,” says Milone, who takes a highly personalized approach, connecting her artists with Southern California’s vibrant cultural scene. “Each of Fabien’s visionary presentations of The Dialectic of the Stars is seen as a constellation and FLAX welcomes the public to drift all over the city to experience these incredible artworks and activations.” “As a European, I was inspired by LA, which is about both image and images: it’s cinematographic and paradisiac, but also artificial, violently fascinating as can be a suburban simulacra, which expands itself between a desert and an ocean. It’s an attracting, contradictory, hallucinatory and mysterious place– both political and poetic,” says Fabien Danesi, curator and former program director of Le Pavillon, the residen-cy program of the famed Palais de Tokyo in Paris, a longtime collaborator of FLAX. Of the 19 artists featured in this festival, many will be showing in the U.S. for the first time, including Fouad Bouchoucha, Rafaela Lopez and Paris-based multimedia artist Nicolas Momein. Renowned for his innovative and large-scale sculptural work, Momein will create a mobile piece specifically for The Dialectic of the Stars that will act as the totem of the project, linking all the events together. Magnetic sculptures will be presented on a van and each iteration will unveil a new presentation of the work. LA-based artists were also commissioned by FLAX to perform or produce new artworks echoing the venue where they will be presented: Ford Theatres for Scoli Acosta, Robert Karimi, the Lucky Dragons, Emily Mast in collaboration with Alan Chan, Alison O’Daniel and Assaf Shaham; Geneva Skeen for LACE; and Zebulon for Jasmin Blasco.

The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds in Broadway THE EFFECT OF GAMMA RAYS ON MAN-IN-THE-MOON MARIGOLDS
Sierra Madre Playhouse
2/26-2/26/2018
Sierra Madre Playhouse continues its Off The Page series of free staged readings with Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds on Monday, February 26, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. The Playhouse’s Artistic Director Christian Lebano will direct. Frowzy, acid-tongued, supporting herself and her two daughters by taking in a decrepit old boarder, Beatrice Hunsdorfer wreaks a petty vengeance on everybody about her. One daughter, Ruth, is a pretty but highly strung girl subject to convulsions; while the younger daughter, Matilda, plain and almost pathologically shy, has an intuitive gift for science. Encouraged by her teacher, Tillie undertakes a gamma ray experiment with marigolds that wins a prize at her high school-and also brings on the shattering climax of the play. Proud and yet jealous, too filled with her own hurts to accept her daughter's success, Beatrice can only maim when she needs to love and deride when she wants to praise. Tortured, acerbic, slatternly, she is as much a victim of her own nature as of the cruel lot which has been hers. And yet, as Tillie's experiment proves, something beautiful and full of promise can emerge from even the most barren, afflicted soil. This is the timeless lesson of the play and the root of its moving power and truth

Sierra Madre Playhouse
1/19-3/4/2018
December 7, 1941. Four Hawaiian youngsters (two of Korean extraction, one of Filipino parentage, one of Japanese extraction) are playing marbles in a churchyard in Wahiawa, on Oahu’s North Shore. Japanese bombers buzz the town on their way to attack Pearl Harbor. War arrives, and Nothing Is the Same. Mits, the Japanese-Hawaiian youth, eventually becomes an object of suspicion after he appears to signal one of the aircraft flying overhead. Could he possibly be a spy for the enemy? How will this effect how the other three youngsters respond to him? Japanese Americans on the mainland are being sent to detention camps far from their homes. Will that happen to Mits on the island? George, Bobi and Daniel, the other three, though not of Japanese heritage, are Asian Pacific Americans. How will perceptions of how they are seen affect their lives and their relationship with Mits?

Musical Theatre West presents MUSICAL THEATRE WEST PRESENTS "GUYS AND DOLLS"
Musical Theatre West at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center
2/16-3/4/2018
Gangsters and gamblers, missionary dolls, and showgirls turn the gamble of love into a high-energy musical when Musical Theatre West presents five-time Tony Award-winning musical "Guys and Dolls, February 16 - March 4 at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center. Based on the stories and characters by Damon Runyon, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, the show tops Entertainment Weekly’s list of “The Greatest Musical of all Time.” Tickets are now on sale at www.musical.org, by calling (562) 856- 1999 ext. 4 or at the Musical Theatre West ticket office. Tickets start at $20. Rolling the dice is the vice of choice for Nathan Detroit (Matthew Henerson). He has big spenders ready to join his latest illegal crap game, but he needs some serious dough to keep the game afloat. He taps Sky Masterson (Jeremiah James), a man who’s known for his willingness to gamble on anything and everything. Their $1000 bet: Sky has to get prim and pious do-gooder Sarah Brown (Madison Claire Parks) to go with him on a jaunt to Havana. Nathan certainly likes the odds; after all, he’s kept his own fiancée, Miss Adelaide (Bree Murphy), waiting for their trip to the altar for 14 years! As Sarah searches for sinners to reform, Nathan keeps looking to make his big score and Sky comes to find that love just may be the biggest gamble of all. Set against the picturesque backdrop of New York’s Broadway, Guys and Dolls features one of the greatest musical scores, with hits that include: “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” “Adelaide’s Lament,” “Bushel and a Peck,” If I Were a Bell,” and “Luck, Be a Lady.” This musical masterpiece is not to be missed!

2/1-3/11/2018
Range of Light presents the world premiere of David Sessions’ dark comedy Two Fisted Love, a visiting production at the Odyssey Theatre. Opens February 3. It’s 2008 and Hollywood A-lister, Caroline Connors (Serena Scott Thomas), having recently been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, braves her descent into an uncertain future while attempting to navigate her relationships with her ultra-conservative and less than politically correct husband Kevin (David Sessions), and her defiant and idealistic daughter Rachel (Laura Long). Set in an affluent community near Silicon Valley in the months leading up to the financial crisis and the election, Two Fisted Love makes good use of its irreverent and original characters and artfully incorporates a blend of styles, ranging from, as Mr. Sessions puts it, “…a modern drawing room comedy to painfully dark conversations for mature audiences only…” The ensemble cast features Serena Scott Thomas (British actress; Paul Michael Anderson’s Inherent Vice, The World is Not Enough, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, BBC’s Diana) as matriarch Caroline Connors; Laura Long (AMC’s Turn: Washington’s Spies) as Rachel; David Sessions (Mail Call with R. Lee Ermey and Shootout; Candida at PRT, Hunger at the Odyssey, Bed Facing North at the Court Theatre, and Fortune and Men’s Eyes at the Coast Playhouse directed by David Galligan) as Kevin; Jason Downs (Hairspray, Clara’s Heart, The Homecoming directed by Guillermo Cienfuegos and Cigarettes and Chocolate at PRT) plays Andy, the offbeat and ‘amoral’ computer programmer; Lynne Oropeza (The Manchurian Candidate, HBO’s Westworld, FX’s Baskets) plays Caroline’s best friend, Maggie; Jacob Osborne (Home Invaders, White River Tales) plays the underachieving son, Justin; Guy Kapulnik (After the War, The Dibuk, Bordo) plays Caroline’s neurologist, Dr. Sharon; Rene Rivera (King of the Desert, Boleros, Disenchanted) plays Robert, a ‘rags to riches’ immigrant from across the border; and Paula Lafayette (Roxanna, Australian TV’s Wonderland) plays Maria, an ‘illegal’ immigrant who finds herself living in the basement and scrubbing floors for this rich and famous, yet dysfunctional American family. Two Fisted Love began its development at the Pacific Resident Theatre, where it was carefully tuned for nearly three years under the watchful eye of Marilyn Fox before receiving a staged reading at the Odyssey Theatre in October of 2016 (courtesy of Ron Sossi) which featured Orson Bean and Alley Mills in two of the leading roles; the script then received further dramaturgical input and revision over the first half of 2017 by Jules Aaron before finding its way to Serena Scott Thomas. David Sessions was born in Roswell, New Mexico and raised in Berkeley, California. He studied playwriting at the HB Studios in New York under the direction of Uta Hagen, and is the son of philosopher and deep ecologist George Sessions. The creative team for Two Fisted Love includes scenic designer John Iacovelli, lighting design by Brian Gale, and sound designed by Cricket Myers. The assistant director is Ryan McRee and the stage manager is Morgan Wilday. Two Fisted Love runs Feb. 3 through March 11, with performances on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 3 p.m. Two preview performances take place on Thursday, Feb. 1 and Friday, Feb. 2. All tickets are $34 (reserved seating) except previews which are $15. The Odyssey Theatre is located at 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd., West Los Angeles, 90025. Secure, on-site parking is available for $5.
