Do you hate your job? Ever fantasise about doing something different, maybe something exotic or even xxx? Crossing the Line invites you to meet Shayne, a greying 40-something Londoner whose job has most of the attributes of any other,- long hours, tiring work, varying levels of satisfaction and sometimes interesting (though mostly annoying) clientele. By allowing the audience to follow the way he lives his day-to-day life as a paid up, card carrying member of the 'oldest profession on earth,' Shayne hopes to expose the dark, murky underbelly of the male escort industry for what it really is, - a way to pay the bills. Based on real-life stories from those in the trade, Crossing the Line is a casual meta-comedy that promises to give you your money's worth.

C elebrated as one of the most inf l uential musicians and composers of the 20th century, Leonard Bernstein ushered in an era of m ajor cultural transition. He led the way in advocating an open attitude about what constituted good music, actively bridging the gap between classical music, B r oadway musicals, jazz and rock, and he seized new media for its potential to reach diverse communities of listeners, young and old. Longtime conductor of the New York Philharmonic, renowned composer of works for the concert hall and Broadway stage, glamoro us television personality, virtuosic pianist and committed educator, Bernstein was an extravagantly gifted musician with a common touch. He maintained a life - long focus on advocating for social justice, notably civil rights at home and peace around the wor ld. To celebrate the maestro's 100th birthday, Segerstrom Center is pleased to present a tribute to the musical theater masterpieces Bernstein created while honoring the scope and reach of his genius.
