Cinderella Jun 19 - Jun 24, 2018  
Pantages Theatre Cinderella
 
With its fresh new take on the beloved tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess, this hilarious and romantic Rodgers + Hammerstein's CINDERELLA combines the story's classic elements – glass slippers, pumpkin, and a beautiful ball along with some surprising twists. More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, this Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited young woman with savvy and soul who doesn't let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. She longs to escape the drudgery of her work at home and instead work to make the world a better place. She not only fights for her own dreams, but forces the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too. Recommended for All Ages. Children under 5 will not be admitted to the theatre. All patrons must have a ticket, regardless of age.

But as darkness falls outside the crumbling pre-war duplex, mysterious things start to go bump in the night -- and family tensions reach a boiling point. After a successful Broadway run last year, where it won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play, The Humans now comes to the Ahmanson in L.A., directed once again by two-time Tony winner Joe Mantello (Assassins).

Just like memories, no two versions of The Collective Memory Project are alike, as memories of each new audience are incorporated into every presentation. This event is part of IGNITE @ the FORD!, a series presented by the Ford Theatre Foundation comprised of world-renowned contemporary artists whose work is thought-provoking and reflects the world in which we live.

A run-in with a bullied artistic kid offers CB peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful as Dog Sees God comes to The Sherry Theater in Los Angeles.
