Dear Evan Hansen Oct 17 - Nov 25, 2018  
Ahmanson Theatre Dear Evan Hansen
 
Following its hugely successful run at Broadway's Music Box Theater, this darkly comic musical is set to tour across the country from Fall 2018, kicking off in Denver. The six-time Tony winning, poignant and thought-provoking production has received rave reviews from critics for its unexpectedly touching portrayal of misunderstood youth, young love and the search for acceptance, with a score from the composing team behind 2017's Academy Award-winning La-La Land, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
 
   
Steambath Oct 17 - Dec 16, 2018  
Odyssey Theatre Ensemble Steambath
 
This play presents the afterlife as a steambath, in which recently deceased souls (who may not in every case realize that they're dead) continue to obsess about the same petty concerns that obsessed them in their lives. Ultimately, they are cast into another room offstage which is represented by a dark void by God, the steambath's Puerto Rican attendant and with the help of his assistant Gottlieb. In the play, the new arrival Tandy at first refuses to accept what's happened, and when he finally does, he pleads to be allowed to return to his life. Steambath was controversial when first produced for its obscene language, its satirical take on religion and some brief nudity. Now you can catch it on the stage of the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles.
 
   
A Splintered Soul Oct 17 - Nov 4, 2018  
Long Beach Performing Arts Center A Splintered Soul
 
A gripping drama about war refugees haunted by the death of their loved ones — and by memories of the things they had to do to survive. It’s 1947 in San Francisco, home to a group of resettled Holocaust survivors from Poland whose very existence depended on blurring the lines between right and wrong. It is there we meet Rabbi Kroeller and a group of morally starved refugees as they seek to define their existence in this new, tidy post-war America. How can these splintered souls adapt to a new life in a new land, where all the rules have changed?
 
   
Cost Of Living Oct 17 - Dec 16, 2018  
Fountain Theatre Cost Of Living

The people who help them, Jess and Eddie, have their own struggles to contend with. Cost of Living is a haunting, rigorously unsentimental play about the forces that bring people together and the realities of facing the world with physical disabilities. Winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize, as well as the Edgerton New Play Prize; the Jean Kennedy Smith Prize, John F. Kennedy Center; the Women's Invitational Prize, Ashland New Play Festival; the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding New Play; and named one of the “Best Plays of 2017” by The New York Times.

The Plumbing Tree Oct 19 - Oct 20, 2018  
Highways Performance Space and Gallery The Plumbing Tree
 
The Plumbing Tree is a political science fiction that explores ideas of queer familial structures, polarizing political ideologies and social contagions. The play is told through the perspectives of an eccentric family plagued by dogma, and composed of three acts, each narrated by Miasma, the personification of a smell. What appears to be an episode of sibling rivalry as presented on a sitcom television show, gradually shatters into contagious pandemonium after the family is poisoned by methane gas from a plumbing disaster in their front lawn. In the flood of excrement, the family descends into a collective hallucination. Madness and despair gifts each member of the household with a lucidity that radically calls into question each of their world views. Medium Judith is a host for an interdisciplinary methodology for writing experimental theater works. The company originated in 2012 in Baltimore, MD with works composed by Bryan Collins and Amanda Horowitz. Their collaboration began as an urgent response to emergent political tools of the internet and their recombinant effects on power. Backdropped by this changing political landscape, they debuted Shy World (2013), a one-act play satirizing the conditions of the surveillance state, internet addiction and online activism. Through a process that utilizes conceptual sculpture, joke writing and concept-map making, Medium Judith creates a queer theater in which cultural signifiers are transmuted and recomposed into an experimental world logic and value system.
