Taking Sides Oct 25 - Nov 12, 2017  
Rubicon Theatre Taking Sides
 
Harwood’s dramatization of the investigation into Furtwängler is set in 1946 in the American Zone of occupied Berlin. Major Steve Arnold interviews Wilhelm Furtwängler, a conductor at the pinnacle of his career, (and Hitler’s favorite conductor) in preparation for his de-Nazification tribunal. Furtwängler had become increasingly controversial when he chose to remain in Germany while many of his colleagues had fled out of protest or persecution. Did he naively believe that art was above politics? Did he allow himself to be manipulated by the Nazi propaganda machine? Or was he, in fact, a collaborator?

Ah, relationships. Sometimes they can feel like you're playing a game you don't know the rules to. If only there was someone to explain it all. Someone like, say, Vivica A. Fox?

But what would the relationship guru with all the answers do when she found her own man stepping out? What wouldn't she do? Fox once again lays down the rules -- this time on stage at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center in Je'Caryous Johnson's theatrical adaptation. The star-studded cast also includes Scandal's Columbus Short, R&B singer Vivian Green and "Real Housewife" Porsha Williams. The game just got real.
