A rowdy and rustic retelling of the familiar French fable, Beauty and the Beast features an ensemble of six actor-musicians who all play instruments whilst on stage. Devised by English/Norwegian group New International Encounter (NIE), along with Cambridge Junction and Tobacco Factory Theatres, and directed by NIE founder and artistic director Alex Byrne, this play with music weaves spellbinding narration, clever dialogue and a Jazz Age score into a ferociously fun show about love, family and the notion that beauty-and beastliness-are only skin-deep. Brimming with surprises and broad comic delights, this charming production from England features a feisty heroine, a preposterous pair of loudmouthed, spoiled sisters and an enchanted prince with some monstrously bad pick-up lines. See it for yourself on the New Victory stage from October 26 - November 11, 2018!

Playwright Henry Ong admits that when he stumbled upon Tirso de Molina's "La celosa de si misma" (Jealous of Herself) during the Playwrights' Arena (PA) for the Golden Tongues series to introduce audiences to the treasures of the Golden Age of Spanish theater between 1590 to 1681, a PA-partnership with UCLA William Andrews Clark Memorial Library, he discovered an ingenious tale of deceit and deception with fascinating characters and relentless wit. The tale of self-image, identity, and the idea of physical perfection as hoisted upon us in the media immediately presented Ong with the opportunity to set his modern adaptation THE BLADE OF JEALOUSY in Los Angeles, a place where so many of us become dissatisfied with what nature has given us and how the media says we should look causes people to continually crave and seek to attain idealized versions of our physical selves in order to gain love.
