<a href=Russell Brand in Broadway" border="0" bheight="100" width="100" align="right"> Russell Brand
Balboa Theatre
In 2004, Brand achieved mainstream fame in the UK as the host of Big Brother's Big Mouth, a Big Brother spin-off. In 2007, he had his first major film role in St Trinian's. He became known in the United States in 2008, after his major role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall; the film led to a starring role in Get Him to the Greek in 2010. He also worked as a voice actor for animated films Despicable Me in 2010 and Hop in 2011 and starred in the 2011 remake of the 1981 Dudley Moore film Arthur. Brand is noted in the British media for his eccentricity and for controversies such as his dismissal from MTV after he dressed as Osama bin Laden, his behaviour as presenter of various award ceremonies and his former drug use. In 2008, he resigned from the BBC following prank calls he made to actor Andrew Sachs on The Russell Brand Show, which led to major changes to the BBC's policy. Whatever he decides to talk about to his audience, you can be sure it will be edgy, topical and controversial…just like he is! Check your sensitivities at the door and make sure you you're prepared since this show will NOT be suitable for the faint-at-heart or easily offended!

Equus in Broadway EQUUS
Long Beach Playhouse
DR. Martin Dysart, a psychiatrist, is confronted with Alan Strang, a boy who has blinded six horses in a violent fit of passion. This very passion is as foreign to Dysart as the act itself. To the boy's parents it is a hideous mystery; Alan has always adored horses. To Dysart it is a psychological puzzle that leads both doctor and patient to a complex and disturbingly dramatic confrontation. This international success reached new acclaim in London and on Broadway when revived in 2008. Bases on true events.

A Weekend with Pablo Picasso in Broadway A WEEKEND WITH PABLO PICASSO
San Diego Repertory Theatre
Three years ago the actor/writer Herbert Siguenza (Culture Clash) had the audacity to write an original play and star as Pablo Picasso, the most influential artist in modern history. The REP hosted a 3-week workshop that quickly became a sensation. Now, after polishing the fully-realized work into a critical success that wowed audiences in L.A., the Bay Area, Houston, and Denver, Siguenza's one-man tour de force returns stronger than a bull in a china shop! Picasso was the first rock-star artist-a ferocious pacifist, obsessive art maker, flamboyantly opinionated philosopher, and self-proclaimed clown-who relished his passionate views about love, death, war, beauty, eternity, and creativity. Siguenza creates a joyful and mesmerizing portrait of the maestro as he dances, sculpts, shares secrets, clowns, draws and impersonates a matador while extensively quoting the father of modern art. With a skill that will amaze you, the actor draws and paints onstage, in real time during every performance! Go back to 1957 and spend three days with a genius inside his private studio on the southern coast of France. We promise a weekend you will never forget.
