Famous Sep 21 - Sep 29, 2019  
The 11:11 Famous
 
Set in 1994, Famous takes audiences into a world ruled by sex, money and power taken at any cost. Just nominated for his first Oscar, Jason Mast is throwing a celebratory party at his Hollywood Hills home that serves as the backdrop for an intricate plan to confront his past, with the night unfolding at an adrenaline-rushed pace. Driven by a devastating need to expose the truth, Jason’s attempt to control the outcome of the evening ignites a chain of events that push the boundaries of real friendship and reveal the true cost of fame. Writer-director Michael Leoni, whose previous hit, Elevator, earned raves from the Los Angeles Times and Broadway World, brings this look at the cost of fame to The 11:11 in West Hollywood.

Covering the outrageous, quotidian, and glamorous, Sandy is “a brief respite from the endless madness of the ever more stressful news of the world.” (Time Out NY). Backed by the Sandyland Squad Band.
 
   
The Drowsy Chaperone Sep 21 - Oct 13, 2019  
Morgan-Wixson Theatre The Drowsy Chaperone
 
With the houselights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight. Hailed by New York Magazine as “The Perfect Broadway Musical,” The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.
