The Hunchback of Notre Dame in Broadway THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME
Calabasas Performing Arts Education Center
3/20-3/24/2018
RING THE BELLS! Calabasas High School is proud to bring THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME to our community this spring! Inspired by the classic Victor Hugo novel, THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME features music by Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Little Shop of Horrors), and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell,Pippin). The production is an intimate retelling of the famous love story, with a lush, emotionally rich score and production value that will leave you in awe. Follow Quasimodo, the deformed bell ringer, as he journeys outside of the walls of the cathedral and into the streets of Notre Dame. His search to connect with others leads him to see both the best and worst of humanity. Under the direction of Bill Garrett, this production strips away the happy endings and takes us back to the darker roots of Victor Hugo's epic story of the search for love, acceptance and what it means to be a hero . Discover why Stephen Schwartz calls this musical one of his favorite works he has ever penned.

The Alamo in Broadway THE ALAMO
Ruskin Group Theatre
2/24-3/24/2018
In the blue collar Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn sits a rundown neighborhood institution called The Alamo; the last great American bar. The owners, Munce and Carmen, along with some of their regulars watched, from the roof, as the World Trade Towers fell, taking down their relatives, friends, and neighbors. Today, with an aging clientele, the place is fighting to keeps it’s doors open and the only hope seems to be the arrival of artist/gentrifiers who are moving into the neighborhood and wanting to adopt the bar as an entertainment hangout. Bay Ridge locals and Alamo regulars don’t want to surrender their bar, much less their neighborhood, to these young neo-carpetbaggers without a fight. Touching on themes of, nativism, racism, and war, The Alamo paints a humorous and dramatic portrait of eight working class Bay Ridge natives who always seem to find themselves on the front lines of change in America. During their second decade of bringing Los Angeles audiences outstanding entertainment, Ruskin Group Theatre continues to celebrate the essence of arts and humanity, within the microcosm of theatre. Supporting new writers and the development of new plays is an important part of the Ruskin season. Ian McRae’s The Alamo was inspired by an op-ed piece called “The Hard Lessons Of Iraq” by David Ignatius, published in The Washington Post on the tenth anniversary of the invasion. The ten-minute piece found a slot at the Actor's Theatre in New York and The Eight Tens At Eight in Santa Cruz, California, which propelled him to create this full-length play. Ian was an apprentice with Sanford Meisner and has taught at The Neighborhood Playhouse School Of The Theatre. He was a member of Cucaracha Theatre in NYC where several of his plays were produced. “The Alamo is an authentic and touching portrayal of an Italian-American neighborhood in Brooklyn. Both funny and dramatic, it features vivid characters whose lives haven’t turned out quite the way that they had hoped. Each of them carries scars of the past (from Vietnam to 9/11, and choices long gone) as they fight for their place in a world under the assault of millennial gentrification. I love this play, because Ian McRae writes with such passion, compassion, and humor, about a forgotten group of people—blue collar Americans” – Kent Thompson; Director Our Cast: Bobby Costanzo (Joey), Eileen Galindo (Carmen), Nancy Georgini (Claudine), Milica Govich (Mary), Julia Arian (Micaela/Alternate), Kelsey Griswold (Micaela /Alternate), John Lacy (Dominic), Jack Merrill (Tick), and Tim True (Munce) The production team includes John Ruskin and Michael Myers (Producers), Mike Reilly (Production Manager), John Iacovelli (Scenic Design), Edward Sales (Lighting Designer), Chip Bolcik (Sound Design), Emily N. Smith (Costume Designer), Paul Ruddy (Casting), and Nicole Millar (Stage Manager) The Alamo opens at 8pm on Saturday, February 24th and continues Fridays – Saturday at 8pm, Sundays 2pm through March 31, 2018. Ruskin Group Theatre is located at 3000 Airport Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90405. Tickets are $27 - $30 and can be purchased in advance by calling (310) 397-3244 or online at www.ruskingrouptheatre.com . Free parking available on site.

3/24-3/24/2018
Aquila’s Hamlet sheds new light on this tragic story through its innovative use of movement, design, sound, and superb acting to vividly explore the depths of rage, madness, love and death brought about by a culture of obsessive personal ambition. Aquila’s productions of Shakespeare are “beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect.” The New Yorker

Other Desert Cities in Broadway OTHER DESERT CITIES
Westminster Community Playhouse
3/17-3/25/2018
Nominated for 5 Tony Awards, Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize,recipient of Outer Critics Circle Award, the powerful family and political drama OTHER DESERT CITIES, written by acclaimed writer Jon Robin Baitz, (creator of ABC TV's hit series "Brothers and Sisters" and writer for "The West Wing") and described by critics as "powerful", "poignant and moving", will be performed in a southern CA production run at the Westminster Community Playhouse March 9-25, 2018. Times, ticket info listed below. Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. Directed by Lenore Stjerne CAST: Brooke Wyeth: Cassidy McMillan. Polly Wyeth: Kimberly Wooldridge Lyman Wyeth: John Parker Trip Wyeth: Miller Daurey. Silda Grauman: Janet Arnold-Clark In the compelling, poignant OTHER DESERT CITIES, author and magazine journalist Brooke Wyeth returns home from New York to Palm Springs, California after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents Polly and Lyman Wyeth, her brother Trip and her aunt. Brooke announces she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history – a wound they don’t want reopened. In effect, Brooke draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it. A provocative portrait of a family in conflict, each member looking for acceptance, love and forgiveness. Additional synopsis: On Christmas Eve 2004, best-selling author and magazine writer Brooke Wyeth (Cassidy McMillan) has been in recovery in and out of hospitals the past six years due to depression from a recent divorce as well as a tragedy that struck the Wyeth family some 20 years prior when Brooke was a young teen she hadn't emotionally dealt with prior. The tragedy revolves around the suicide of Brooke's older brother Henry, (Polly and Lyman's eldest son), who had been implicated in a criminal act that stemmed from political activism gone terribly wrong. Brooke looked up to her older brother Henry whom she considered her best friend, and his fateful actions and death sent her into years of a slow spiral of depression, disengaging from allowing herself to get too close to anyone, yet remaining kind and empathetic. Brooke's mother Polly Wyeth (Kimberly Wooldridge), a former Hollywood screenwriter, old guard Republican and friend of Nancy and Ronald Reagan, copes with the traumatic events by distancing herself from what happened and the guilt she feels. In the strained relationship between Brooke and her mother Polly, one can see Polly loves her daughter Brooke, but has always had difficulty expressing it to her daughter. Brooke's dad Lyman Wyeth (John Parker) is a former Hollywood film actor in the golden age of Hollywood, who was friends with fellow actor Ronald Reagan and was appointed as an ambassador during Reagan's presidency. Lyman cares very much about his daughter Brooke and tries to keep at bay the guilt he feels regarding the events that led to Henry's death. He is the reserved, quiet leader and statesman of the family, who sought to protect his family from events and from the emotional fallout. Trying to keep the peace in the family is Brooke's younger brother Trip (Miller Daurey), a cynical TV producer of a reality show. Both Trip and Brooke were left to deal with the fallout from the trauma of the past, which impacted both of their lives in profound ways which rise to the surface. Polly's sister Silda (Janet Arnold-Clark), used to write comedic screenplays of lighter fare with her sister Polly in the golden age of Hollywood. Silda, now an alcoholic fresh out of rehab dealing with her secrets of the past, is temporarily living with Polly and Lyman, who are looking after her to ensure she doesn't relapse. Silda, idealistic and liberal minded, clashes with her staunch conservative sister Polly. Each family member has secrets which are uncovered as each family member must grapple with their version of both past and current events. In the powerful second act, each must make the life changing decision if painful emotional wounds can be healed and forgiveness found. OC Tribune's review of the production of OTHER DESERT CITIES https://orangecountytribune.com/2018/03/13/other-desert-cities-are-worth-the-trip/ The play is directed by Lenore Stjerne.

WINNER BEST SEASON 2017 - OVATION AWARD Rogue Machine kicks off their 2018 season with Justin Tanner’s new play El Niño, directed by his long time collaborator Lisa James with French Stewart and John Perrin Flynn producing. Will the winds blow? The rains come? The cat die? Legendary local playwright Justin Tanner fashions a new laugh-out-loud comedy that encompasses his talent for writing an equally brilliant underbelly of sadness for humankind. Once again discover all you’ve come to love about a Tanner piece, including his regular cast. “Our four new plays are about the haunted, about how we see ourselves and how we survive in a world that is increasingly nonsensical," says Artistic Director John Perrin Flynn. "One of Rogue Machine’s most important missions is to offer visionary playwrights a professional platform and we are honored to do just that, by presenting four important world premieres from established playwrights." Justin Tanner is a Los Angeles playwright with over twenty produced plays to his credit. His first play, Changing Channels, was named one of the “best of the year” by the LA Times, produced by Jon Lawrence Rivera at The Second Stage Theater in Hollywood. He then partnered with Diana Gibson and Andy Daley at Hollywood's CAST Theatre where he wrote eleven plays, including the long running hits Zombie Attack! Teen Girl, Pot Mom and Heartbreak Help, working with such notable actors as French Stewart, Mark Ruffalo, Laurie Metcalf, Pamela Adlon, John Glover and Fred Willard. Justin’s plays Space Therapy, Voice Lessons, and Day Drinkers all received Ovation Award nominations for Best Play. In addition to his work in theatre, Justin wrote for multi-award winning television series My So-Called Life (with Claire Danes and Jared Leto) and Gilmore Girls. His pilot Silver Lake was produced by Aaron Spelling. Since 2009 he has written, directed, photographed and edited 86 chapters of his mind-bending web series "Ave 43." Director Lisa James is a multi-award winner for her work on Heartstopper (LA Weekly Award), Palladium is Moving (Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award), Lynn Siefert’s Litte Egypt, Wendy Macleod’s The Water Children (LADCC nomination and Garland Awards), Justin Tanner’s Bitter Women (LADCC Award), Bold Girls, and The Visible Horse (LADCC and Garland Awards).

Crack Whore, Bulimic, Girl-Next-Door is a one-act play chronicling one woman’s journey through the perils of depression and bulimia.

Pigs and Chickens in Broadway PIGS AND CHICKENS
Atwater Village Theatre Complex
3/16-4/15/2018
Ensemble Studio Theatre/Los Angeles presents "Pigs and Chickens” A New Play by Marek Glinski and directed by Kevin Comartin While working at a chaotic tech startup, a woman tries to overcome her hellish anger management problem and get along with her buggy coworkers, human and otherwise. Marek Glinski breathes humor into the perils of individuals coexisting with technology. Writer Marek Glinski recalls, “Pigs and Chickens started out as a dig against my one time day job, writing technical documentation for a startup in its chaotic early days. Mocking the wonky rituals and quirks of an engineering team, that seemed to speak only in acronyms, was fun! But the more I poked, the more I remembered the personal connections I had made at the office. But,couldn’t resist the irony that there were these people having sticky, messy, human transactions while building “solutions” that compensated for human messiness. Playwright Marek Glinski developed Pigs & Chickens with the EST/LA Playwrights Unit and through its 2017 Fuel workshop. He collaborated on EST/LA’s late-night sci-fi soap opera In Search of DOG in 2014, and workshopped his play Mammoth Gorge there in 2009. Other plays include This Little Piggy with Darkhorse Theatre in New York, Saint Barbara at the National Showcase of New Plays - Stanford University; Utah, a semi-finalist for the Actors Theatre of Louisville Humana Festival 2001 Heideman Award, presented at the 2001 Turnip Festival in New York City; and The Devil’s Sonata, winner of the 2001 Illinois Arts Council Fellowship for Dramatic Writing, performed at Chicago’s Visions and Voices Theatre. Kevin Comartin directed the world premiere of the Ovation and Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle award nominated WET: A DACAmented Journey, written and performed by Alex Alpharoah. He hosts The Kitchen Sink Variety Show, a monthly comedy show, and heads up the New West Playwrights group at EST/LA. Kevin is the producer for numerous digital shorts and web series, and he frequently collaborates with Worst Person Productions. Ensemble cast includes Poonam Basu (Aditi), Don Cummings (Brett), Sharon Freedman (Wili), Lizzie Peet (Stephanie), Anil Margsahayam (Sam), Christopher Reiling (Chris), Liz Ross (Dennis the voice of the AI Interface), Andy Shephard (Brian), and Keith Szarabajka (Denise the voice of the AI Interface).

Engaging Shaw in Broadway ENGAGING SHAW
Theatre 40
3/15-4/15/2018
England, 1897. Charlotte Payne-Townshend, wealthy Irish heiress, meets George Bernard Shaw, the financially challenged but famous Irish playwright and political activist (He’s a Fabian Socialist). Will sparks fly? Shaw is a notorious flirt and heartbreaker. He enjoys romancing women, though not particularly interested in sex. The thrill of the hunt is the main attraction for Shaw: the pursuit of women, not the keeping of them. In present-day parlance, he’d be considered a sexist. But Charlotte is not quite like any other woman that Shaw has met before. She is a woman that he must consider to be his intellectual peer. They thrive in each other’s company, but can he resist her when she wants to take their relationship to the next level? “No man can resist a woman once she has set her sights on him, unless thwarted by another woman,” declares Charlotte. But Beatrice Webb, co-founder of the London School of Economics, who introduced the pair, also has strong feelings for Shaw. Will Charlotte get her man?

The Night Forlorn (or, Waitin' On Godsford) in Broadway THE NIGHT FORLORN (OR, WAITIN' ON GODSFORD)
Theatre West
3/16-4/22/2018
THE NIGHT FORLORN (OR, WAITIN' ON GODSFORD) is a new play by Steve Nevil (writer of last year's critically acclaimed Welcome to Heretofore at the LA Fringe Festival). ). This is a re-imagining of Beckett's Waiting for Godot, set in the West during the 1870s. At a campfire out on the prairie, two none-too-bright cowpokes, wait for their leader Godsford and for instructions about "the plan." There's been a hanging in town, and they may or may not have been part of it - in the flurry of what happened, things are somewhat unclear to them. All they are sure about is that Godsford has told them to meet them here by the tree. Into their midst come several tumbleweed characters - all of whom may change the course of their destiny in one way or another. A comedic journey which utilizes the roots of vaudeville as well as the absurdity of Beckett, the play is in many ways an homage to the elegiac westerns of Ford and Peckinpah. Features performances by Jim Beaver (from the series "Deadwood" / "Supernatural"/”The Ranch”) J Downing (from the cult 90's series "Viper") The cast includes Tom Allard, Jim Beaver, Leslie Caveny,  J. Downing,  Robert W. Laur,  June Schreiner. Set design: J. Downing Lighting: Yancey Dunham, Stage manager: Benjamin Scuglia, Graphic design: Doug Haverty Art & Soul Design. This production was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Kaplan-Loring Foundation. Opens Friday March 16th, and plays Friday and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm. There will be a Q&A after the matinee performance on Sunday, March 18, with the writer, director and cast

An Undivided Heart in Broadway AN UNDIVIDED HEART
Atwater Village Theatre
3/14-4/22/2018
Echo Theater Company and Circle X Theatre Co. join forces to present Yusuf Toropov’s new play that is part thriller and part spiritual mystery. How far will powerful men and institutions go to keep their secrets — and who pays the price when they do? Set in 1992 Massachusetts against the backdrop of the Catholic Church sexual abuse scandal and a toxic drinking water scandal (the latter made famous by the book and film "A Civil Action”), An Undivided Heart is part thriller and part spiritual mystery. A series of otherworldly visions and an unlikely encounter with a Zen priest propel Father Mike Cleary into a collision course with his Archdiocese, while Lynne Callahan, a young widow, struggles to make sense of her life in a town whose water has been polluted with deadly chemicals. The two confront a universal problem: How do victims of suffering caused by others find a way to go on? March 16 through Oct. April 22: Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 4 p.m., Mondays at 8 p.m.;; Atwater Village Theatre, 3269 Casitas Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90039; $20-$34; 310-307-3753; www.EchoTheaterCompany.com.

The Madres in Broadway THE MADRES
Skylight Theatre Company
3/10-4/29/2018
Skylight Theatre takes the lead in staging The Madres, a NNPN Rolling World Premiere, with Los Angeles the first city to offer a professional production of the work. In a time of resistance what will you do? Buenos Aires, Argentina and people are disappearing off the streets but no one is talking about it. The "Dirty War" waged by the military Junta against its own people is in full swing. Three generations of women in a single family face state terrorism. The Mothers of Los Desaparecidos de Argentina can teach us all how to fight tyranny. The Madres is one family's story. The Madres hits Los Angeles with an impressive cache of accolades, including winning the Ashland New Plays Festival and the Boulder Ensemble Theater Company's Generations Contest. Playwright Stephanie Alison Walker is the winner of the Ashland New Plays Festival, Blue Ink Award and the Generations Prize, as well as the runner-up for the Jane Chambers Award. She has been a finalist for the O’Neill Playwrights Conference, ATCA's Francesca Primus Prize, the CTG/Humanitas Playwriting Prize, the Saroyan/Paul Playwriting Prize for Human Rights and four-time Finalist for the Heideman Award. Stephanie is the author of the book and blog, Love In The Time Of Foreclosure and was featured by the Los Angeles Times, NPR, Business Week Magazine, Chicago Magazine, Huffington Post Live and ABC World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer. Walker's play, "The Madres, "spoke to my heart, reading it absolutely broke it," says director Sara Guerrero. “It’s a dark, beautiful, timely new work. A story of a mother's love filled with incredible resilience, and resistance, during a repressive time in Argentina's history. A history of over 40 years ago is still not openly talked about but sadly still relevant today.” Director Sara Guerrero is the founding Artistic Director of the award winning, Santa Ana based, Breath of Fire Latina Theater Ensemble. American Theatre Magazine’s "People to Watch" list included Sara, and the OC Weekly recognized her at the publications as “Best [Artistic] Director" and a “Person of Interest.” She has served as the community engagement director for South Coast Repertory’s Dialogue/Diálogos Project and was producing associate for their production of El Largo Camino de Hoy / The Long Road Today by José Cruz González. The cast includes Denise Blasor and Margarita Lamas who will share the role of Josefina (Ms. Lamas performs through April 2 and Ms. Blasor performs April 6 - 29), Natalie Llerena, Alexander Pimentel, Arianna Ortiz, and Gabriel Romero. Creative Team: Christopher Scott Murillo (Set Design), Wes Chew (Lighting Design), Corinne Corrillo (Sound Design), Josephine Siu (Costume Design). Produced by Gary Grossman, Tony Abatemarco and Jonathan Muñoz-Proulx. Associate Producers Marcel Cruz, Kate Luhr, Elissa Barrett and Josh Gershick. Skylight continues their popular series, “Beyond Conversation,” the weekly post Sunday matinee discussion panels curated by Jonathan Muñoz-Proulx, Elissa Barrett and Kate Luhr, which allow audiences to gain deeper insights into the themes of the play. Scheduled talkback guests will include Alicia Partnoy (author of The Little School, which details her disappearance and her illegal imprisonment during the “Dirty Wars”). Additional “Beyond Conversation” speakers, subject to their availability, include Jorge Juerata, Patricia Garza, and Ernesto Yerena. A listing of topics, dates, and additional speakers will be posted on Skylight’s website www.skylighttheatre.org THE MADRES opens at 8:30pm on Saturday, March 10th and continues Fridays and Saturdays at 8:30pm; 2:00pm on Sundays; and 8:00pm on Mondays through April 29, 2018.
