Chicago. 1936. Get ready to enter a smoke-filled world of cons and capers, where nothing is what it seems and no one is who they appear to be. Based on the 1973 Academy Award-winning film, The Sting tells the tale of a pair of con men, small town grifter Johnny Hooker and big time hustler Henry Gondorff, who plot to bring down the city's most corrupt racketeer. The Tony Award-winning creative team includes director John Rando (On The Town), choreographer Warren Carlyle (Hello Dolly!), bookwriter Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone), and an original score by composer/lyricist team Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis (Urinetown). The Sting takes you back to an era where the blues reigns, the stakes are high, and the dice are always loaded.

Motel Mirrors and John Paul Keith Announce New Albums Out 3/30
by BWW News Desk - Mar 5, 2018

There's an old Jimmie Rodgers song called ¬ďBlue Yodel #1 (T for Texas)¬Ē - Waylon Jennings did a wonderful version as well. He sings ¬ďT for Texas, T for Tennessee¬Ē and injects a heap more honky tonk than the original, in keeping with his native Texas musical heritage. One could easily make the jump that the shared musical language of these two states has coalesced in ways that create family from folks who've just met. Memphis' Sun Studios brought together musicians like Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, while Stax was one of the other original integrated musical stables with Booker T & the MGs, Isaac Hayes and Otis Redding.

THE TWENTIETH CENTURY WAY Comes to Long Beach Playhouse Studio
by BWW News Desk - Jul 9, 2018

In 1914, Long Beach leaders hired two bounty hunters to entrapgay men so the city could essentially blackmail and remove them with fines and public humiliation. Most men paid the fine and quietly slipped out of town. One man - a banker - committed suicide and two others sued the city. Playwright Tom Jacobson turned that dark chapter in the city's history into a play entitled The Twentieth Century Way. The play has been produced in Boston, Pasadena and on Broadway. Fittingly, it's coming to the Long Beach Playhouse.   (more...)
