The N.Y. TIMES and HOLLYWOOD REPORTER reviewers both called BUYER AND CELLAR by Jonathan Tolins – one of the “Best Plays of the Year” in its New York debut. In the story Alex, a struggling actor in L.A., takes a job working the Malibu basement of a beloved megastar. One day, the Lady Herself comes downstairs to play. It feels like real bonding in the basement, but will their relationship ever make it upstairs? BUYER AND CELLAR is a seriously funny slice of absurdist whimsy about the price of fame, the cost of things, and the oddest of odd jobs. Don’t miss award-winning actor Brian McDonald in this irresistible one-man play, directed by Stephanie Coltrin. "Hilarious! Beyond brilliant. This show will go down like butta'!" —ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

The Second Coming of Klaus Kinski Jan 25 - Feb 22, 2018  
Studio C Artists The Second Coming of Klaus Kinski
 
Known as much for his volcanic temper as for his work in film and on stage, the phrase "difficult actor" could well have been coined for Klaus Kinski, the German star most famed for his mercurial, multi-film collaboration with director Werner Herzog (Aguirre, The Wrath of God, Nosferatu). Kinski died in 1991, but writer-performer Andrew Perez (David Miscavige in My Scientology Movie) brings him back to life in this Ovation-recommended show and 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival Encore Award winner to complete Kinski's magnum opus: a one-man show about Jesus Christ, which was driven off stage by outraged theater-goers. The Second Coming of Klaus Kinski comes to Studio C Artists, coinciding with an exhibit featuring relics, curios, film installations, live conversations and more about the actor.

But can they make room in their hearts for another man who may just walk out that door again? Winner of the 1977 Golden Globe for Best Screenplay, Neil Simon's The Goodbye Girl was called "the perfect American comedy" by The New York Times. See it now at the James Bridges Theater in Los Angeles.
 
   
Disposable Jan 25 - Jan 28, 2018  
Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Disposable
 
Disposable draws upon the company members’ own experiences of displacement—some as immigrants, others as members of marginalized groups in society. Performed in English, Romanian, Farsi and Spanish, Disposable is a visceral, highly physical and sometimes witty piece that surfaces ultimately as a call-to-action for the planet and for finding a way back to our collective humanity.
 
   
Seussical The Musical Jan 26 - Feb 4, 2018  
Warner Grand Theatre Seussical The Musical
 
In Seussical the Musical, cats wear hats and audiences wear smiles -- both two sizes too large. It's almost impossible not to grin when this all-ages musical adaptation of Dr. Seuss' stories plunges you into the whimsical world of Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears a Who! and many more classics. The Cat in the Hat links the stories of a young boy who is a "thinker of strange and wonderful thinks," and Horton the Elephant, who's out to prove that "a person's a person, no matter how small." Seussical's cast of favorite characters, including the Whos of Whoville, Horton and the Cat himself, brings a sense of wonder and fun to this colorful family fave at the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro.

The Chinese Wall Jan 26 - Mar 11, 2018  
Lonny Chapman Group Repertory Theatre The Chinese Wall
 
Swiss playwright, Frisch, wrote this play in 1946, yet its satire and theatricality make an astounding comment on today's seemingly farcical political arena. What sort of emperor would delight in the completion of a protective wall (The Great Wall of China) that could reach New York or Berlin? Part tragedy, comedy, history, farce and satire, this wildly unpredictable theatrical event knows no bounds as it blends well-known characters from literature with real-life historical people and places them all together on an ethereal stage that rivals and parallels today's headlines. Catch this rich, witty and wry look at history and "time" itself when The Chinese Wall takes to the stage of the Lonny Chapman Theatre in Los Angeles.

Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue Jan 27 - Feb 25, 2018  
Kirk Douglas Theatre Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue
 
No one escapes war unscathed. The Pulitzer Prize-nominated drama Elliot, a Soldier's Fugue traces the legacy of war through three generations of a Puerto Rican-American family. Nineteen-year-old Elliot Ortiz is a Marine just back from Iraq, whose tales of war and the pain of a leg wound weave with his father's stories of the Vietnam War, and of his grandfather's experiences in the Korean War. The result is a poetic and often funny theatrical experience that The New York Times called "a theater work that succeeds on every level, while creating something new." This evocative tale from Tony Award nominee Quiara Alegría Hudes (In the Heights, Water by the Spoonful) makes its way to the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City.
