Funkedified Jul 20  
Ford Amphitheatre Funkedified
 
Pushing the boundaries of street dance vocabulary, Funkedified challenges stereotypes and invites the audience to view hip-hop through a new lens. This multimedia work celebrates the funk music and street dance of the 1970s and is set against the landscape of a video montage of African American communities of that era. Inspired by the political turmoil and atmosphere of Rennie Harris’ childhood, Funkedified is performed by dancers from Rennie Harris Puremovement; The Hood Lockers, one of the most seminal locking groups since Don Campbell and The Campbell Lock Dancers; and dancers from LA’s own Versa-Style Dance Company. A live funk band pays homage to the music of such funk legends such as James Brown, George Clinton and Roger Troutman. Bringing social dance to the concert stage at Hollywood’s Ford Theatres, Rennie Harris and his company Rennie Harris Puremovement are world-renowned for creating a cohesive dance style that finds a cogent voice in the theatre. Considered one of the pioneers of street dance theatre, alongside Princess Grace Kelly and Dr. Julius Erving, Harris was voted one of the most influential people in the last one hundred years of Philadelphia history. An award-winning choreographer, Rennie Harris toured the Middle East as one of four Ambassadors for the United States for President Barak Obama’s cultural exchange program Dance Motion USA.

The Drowsy Chaperone Jul 27 - Sep 1, 2019  
Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center The Drowsy Chaperone
 
When wealthy widow Mrs. Tottenham hosts the wedding of the year, she gets a lot more than a write-up in the society pages: Janet Van de Graaff, glittering starlet of Feldzieg’s Follies, is leaving the stage for love, a turn of events which horrifies the angry and anxious Mr. Feldzieg, whose chief investor has sent two gangsters disguised as pastry chefs to make sure he stops the wedding. Hiring Aldolpho, a Latin lover more vain than virile, to seduce the bride, is unsuccessful, as Janet’s chaperone, a drunken diva, gets herself mistaken for the bride and seduced in Janet’s place. It is left to the eager best man, George, to quite by accident break up the happy pair, when he sends groom Robert Martin out to the garden, blindfolded, and in roller skates. Such are the antics of The Drowsy Chaperone, a fictitious 1928 musical comedy. This magical piece of meta-theatre and playful, heartfelt parody of the 1920s musical comedy features a chirpy jazz age score by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, and a lively, clever book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, both of which were Tony winners in 2006. The score boasts such tunes as the scenery-chomping “Show Off,” the sizzling and silly “I Am Aldolpho,” the double-entendre laden “Toledo Surprise,” and “As We Stumble Along,” that rousing anthem to optimistic alcoholism.

Permanent Collection Jul 29  
Sierra Madre Playhouse Permanent Collection
 
Sterling North, the new Black director of the Morris Foundation precipitates turmoil when he insists that the Foundation museum display its stored artworks of African origin with greater prominence and in greater quantity, dismissing those who oppose him as racist. He is even prepared to go to court to challenge the will of the museum’s founder, Alfred Morris, to pursue the objective of promoting the exposure of North’s beloved African artists. Nothing is as simple as it looks. Was Morris a racist? Who decides who should see art? Who decides what we can see? Who has that right? Can a museum itself be a unified work of art? Should the last will and testament of a private collector be sacrosanct? Permanent Collection poses a lot of questions without simple answers in this thought-provoking play, suggested by events at Philadelphia’s Barnes Foundation.
