Noises Off Apr 21 - May 20, 2018  
A Noise Within Noises Off
 
Considered by many to be the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off shines a spotlight on the hilarious backstage antics of a group of beleaguered actors attempting to perform a theatrical flop called Nothing On. This play-within-a-play is a comedic triumph of slamming doors, falling trousers ... and flying sardines. Written by award-winning English novelist and playwright Michael Frayn (Copenhagen, Democracy), the comedy of errors remains a crowd-pleaser more than 35 years after its debut. Catch this joyfully out-of-control British farce at A Noise Within in Pasadena.

Hailed by The Washington Post as "the funniest play of the year," Joshua Harmon's Bad Jews comes to The Odyssey Theater in Los Angeles. Jewish or not, you're sure to find something to love, and laugh at, in this riotous exercise in familial feuding.

Featuring original songs by Tom Kitt (American Idiot), including "Just Another Day," "You Don't Know" and "Superboy and the Invisible Girl," this emotional powerhouse of a musical addresses grief, suburban life and even ethics in modern psychiatry.

Einstein! Apr 21  
Santa Monica Playhouse Einstein!
 
Jack Fry's Einstein! returns to the Santa Monica Playhouse with a new set of accolades -- earlier this year, Einstein! traveled to New York City for the Stem Theater Festival, where it enjoyed a sold-out run and was the festival's highest-grossing show. In addition, it earned "Pick of the Fringe" status at the Hollywood fest. Of course, Einstein's name has become synonymous with "genius," but there's so much more to him than his world-changing theories. Set in 1914 Berlin, the solo play follows young Albert Einstein as he struggles to prove his General Theory of Relativity, while his personal life -- new fatherhood, a wife who won't agree to a divorce, failing health -- and society crumble around him due to the Great War. Told with humor and heart, Einstein! draws on the recent release of 15,000 documents and Fry's three years of research to show a side of the genius that's rarely seen. The show is recommend for ages 10 and older.

Stomp Apr 24 - Apr 29, 2018

The performers “make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound,” says co-founder/director Luke Cresswell. A unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy, STOMP has created its own inimitable, contemporary form of rhythmic expression: both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in the hands of an idiosyncratic band of body percussionists. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.
