A.C.T.'s Master of Fine Arts Program presents Spring Awakening: The Play by Frank Wedekind. Adapted by Joel G. Fink. Directed by Christine Adaire. NOV 14-23 The Rueff at A.C.T.'s Strand Theater. The strict rules of a small German town forbid any discussion of sex. How, then, are teenagers Wendla, Melchoir, and Moritz to make sense of the new hormones raging through their bodies? As spring turns to summer, each rebels against their repressive parents and teachers . . . with devastating consequences. A pointed indictment of ignorance, power, and what happens when sexuality is policed, this seminal 19th-century play inspired the 2007 Tony Awardwinning musical of the same name.*Please note: This play explores both the awakening and repression of sexuality, and what happens when these two things come in conflict. It contains loud noises, strong language, and mature content, including sexual content, violence, and self-harm. If you would like additional information about the content of this play, please ask a member of our audience services staff.

Jazz Age Comes Alive In BULLETS OVER BROADWAY At Foothill Music Theatre
March 01, 2019
Multi-award winning Foothill Music Theatre presents Bullets Over Broadway The Musical, the Tony Award-nominated musical based on Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath's screenplay for the hit film Bullets over Broadway. A love letter to the golden age of Broadway, Bullets Over Broadway The Musical brings the classic musical comedy back with a bang. Loaded with the songs that made the 1920s roar, this splashy musical features Jazz Age standards including 'Let's Misbehave,' ''Tain't Nobody's Biz-ness If I Do,' "Tiger Rag," and 'Up a Lazy River.' In this madcap comedy, a young playwright finally gets his play produced on Broadway, but discovers there's a catch: the mobster putting up the funds wants a vehicle for his ditzy, talent-free girlfriend. Throw in an aging diva, dancing gangsters, and a bevy of beautiful chorus girls, and comedic capers ensue. Under the direction of Milissa Carey and music direction of Louis Lagalante, Bullets Over Broadway The Musical will play February 28- March 17, 2019 (press opening: March 1) with performances 7:30pm Thursdays, 8:00pm Todays & Saturdays, and 2pm Sundays at the Lohman Theatre, 12345 El Monte Rd (I-280 & El Monte Road), Los Altos Hills.
