The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time  
Ahmanson Theatre The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
 
Winner of five 2015 Tony Awards including Best Play, the acclaimed National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is now touring North America. This Broadway phenomenon, directed by two-time Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse), in an adaptation by Tony and Olivier Award winner Simon Stephen, brings Mark Haddon's internationally best-selling novel to thrilling life. When the curtain rises at L.A.'s Ahmanson Theatre, you'll meet 15-year-old Christopher Boone. Christopher has an extraordinary brain -- exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor's dog, Christopher sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever. Recommended for ages 10 and older, due to adult language.

Edgemar Center for the Arts Danny and the Deep Blue Sea
 
The story: The setting is a rundown bar in the Bronx, where two of society's rejects, Danny and Roberta, strike up a halting conversation over their beer. He is a brooding, self-loathing young man who resorts more to violence than reason; she is a divorced, guilt-ridden young woman whose troubled teenage son is n;ow being cared for by her parents. Danny, whose fellow truck drivers call him "the animal," seems incapable of tender emotion, while Roberta, who is still haunted by the memory of an ugly sexual incident involving her father, is distrustful of men in general. And yet, as their initial reserve begins to melt, and they decide to spend the night together, the possibility of a genuine and meaningful relationship begins to emergeóthe first for both of them.

Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris  
Odyssey Theatre Ensemble Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris
 
A powerful and bold theatrical experience that was an overwhelming success off-Broadway, this revue of Belgian singer-songwriter Jacques Brelís songs pays tribute to his unique genius. Naughty, funny, dark and romantic, Brelís songs brim with flair, attitude and European sophistication, retaining their edgy vibe over half a century after they were written. While Brel is no longer either alive or living in Paris, his legendary vision of romance, humor and moral conviction endures.

The Rabbi's Mission  
Theatre Unlimited The Rabbi's Mission
 
Two women enter a rabbi's office: one his former girlfriend, the other a younger woman engaged to another man. No, this isn't the setup to a classic Jewish joke -- it's the premise of The Rabbi's Mission, a dramedy that examines the thorny topic of what makes someone Jewish. Presented at T.U. Studios in North Hollywood, The Rabbi's Mission is a sequel to the highly successful The Rabbi and the Shiksa (but don't worry, you don't need to have seen the first play to enjoy this one!).

The Fountain Theatre premieres the newest play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan (The Kentucky Cycle, All the Way, Hacksaw Ridge), the first in a series of productions set to take place at theaters across the U.S. as part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. In the very near future, the Trump administration has carried out his campaign promise to round up and detain millions of immigrants. As a writer interviews the former supervisor of a private prison, it becomes clear how federal policy has escalated to a terrifying, seemingly inconceivable, yet inevitable conclusion.
