Tennessee Williams UnScripted  
Falcon Theatre Tennessee Williams UnScripted
 
Passionate, smoldering secrets lurk beneath the surface of genteel society - and explode in a comical climax of accusation, confession and calamity. Inspired by American master playwright Tennessee Williams' rollicking storytelling and delicious language, Impro Theatre starts with a single audience suggestion and builds improvised, full-length plays that are hilarious, yet tender as a Southern belle's broken heart. Williams' best known plays include A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and The Glass Menagerie.

One Of The Nice Ones  
Atwater Village Theatre One Of The Nice Ones
 
The world premiere of a cringe-worthy black comedy about sexual politics in the workplace that will leave audiences howling with laughter in spite of their better selves. As the most recent hire at Tender Form Weight Loss Systems, wheelchair-bound Tracy will stop at nothing to avoid being laid off by high-handed boss Roger. Perhaps it’s her disability that makes her so keenly aware that no one gets ahead by being “one of the nice ones.” Soon, hapless co-worker Neal and weight loss client Colleen find themselves caught in the lethal crossfire of a workplace battle zone.

The Eccentricities of a Nightingale  
Pacific Resident Theatre The Eccentricities of a Nightingale
 
Poetry of the heart ignites powerful desires that can no longer be ignored by Alma. The preacher’s daughter boldly seizes on a chance to follow her heart’s inclinations when John Buchanan returns from medical school to live in their small town where, too often, dreams die quickly. Tennessee Williams’s subtly seductive play centers on the passionately complex and sometimes cruel relationships to which love becomes vulnerable, when we are strong enough to allow it.

Recorded in Hollywood  
Kirk Douglas Theatre Recorded in Hollywood
 
In 1948, a decade before Motown, black businessman John Dolphin opened his soon-to-be world-famous Dolphin's of Hollywood record store in South Central Los Angeles, where he would launch hits such as Sam Cooke's "You Send Me," The Penguins' "Earth Angel" and "Wheel of Fortune" by The Hollywood Flames. Dolphin's immense contribution to the music scene is little-known, but now in Recorded in Hollywood, starring Stu James (RENT, The Color Purple), you can experience Dolphin's life through the iconic music he produced and the tense racial atmosphere he produced it in. Discover the man behind the best music of the 1950s and learn more about his fascinating life and tragic death as Recorded in Hollywood comes to Culver City's Kirk Douglas Theatre.
