In the midst of the worst blizzard New York City has ever seen, a call girl named Julia makes her way to an appointment with Jeffrey, a reclusive man who made his wealth as an inventor of best-selling sex toys. At first, this is little more than a routine "trick" with some extra trimmings, complete with fake palm trees, suntan lotion and lots of margaritas -- but before long, Jeffrey and Julia are helping each other get to the roots of who they are, getting far more out of this "first date" than either of them ever expected. Called "an engaging, funny sex romp," by NY Theater Wire and "undeniably funny ... even touching," by The Stage, The Inventor and the Escort now returns to Los Angeles.

Peter Rabbit Tales Apr 1  
Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza Peter Rabbit Tales
 
"Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were � Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail and Peter ...." These famous opening lines of "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" have enchanted young audiences for over one hundred years with the exploits of a charming hero, who, going against his mother's wishes, has adventures in Mr. McGregor's garden. Beatrix Potter created an instant classic with the little blue-coated rabbit who we recognize as both boy and rabbit, wild and civilized, and who has become an icon of childhood since he first hopped out of the pages of a storybook and into children's hearts. "When Enchantment Theatre decided to make a play based on some of Beatrix Potter's stories, we wanted to use the tales about Peter Rabbit and his family; not only are they are delightful adventures, filled with humor, bravery and loyalty, but these stories are remarkably true to both animal and human nature," says Enchantment Theatre Company�s Artistic Director, Leslie Reidel. Featuring exciting costumes and fantastic animal masks, whimsical puppets, gorgeous scenery, and original music, the approximately one-hour show will transport young audiences and their parents into an enchanted story world where a now grown-up Peter Rabbit and his cousin, Benjamin Bunny, together embark on a breathtaking adventure reminiscent of their youthful escapades in Mr. McGregor's garden. The performance is recommended for children ages 3 - 9.
 
   
Defending A Caveman Apr 1  
La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts Defending A Caveman
 
The longest-running solo show in Broadway history, Defending the Caveman is bringing its hilarious insights about the dynamics between men and women to the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts. A blend of stand-up comedy, lecture and therapy session, Defending the Caveman manages to stand up for the male viewpoint, while still being sympathetic to the female side of the "battle of the sexes." The wildly popular comedy was written by Rob Becker over a three-year period, during which he made an informal study of anthropology, prehistory, psychology, sociology and mythology. The situations are so real (and so funny) that you'll find yourself nudging your partner and friends when you recognize yourself and others in the show.

But when a nighttime seance reveals a murder, everyone becomes a suspect. See if you can solve the mystery with your own sharp wits before the curtain closes on Ken Ludwig's Postmortem at the Archway Studio/Theatre in Los Angeles.

Venture Into the Woods with the acclaimed Fiasco Theater production that became New York's surprise hit of this season.
