And now you can revel in all the wicked delights of Disney’s most iconic baddies when L.A.‘s Rockwell Table & Stage presents Broadway Sings Disney. Hosted by Kate Pazakis (The Big Gay Musical) and Peter Vogt (The Goodbye Girl), this whimsical show tune showcase features some of the brightest stars from Broadway, film and TV belting out your favorite villain tunes.

Politics, social issues, and show biz are all topics that are attacked with blasphemy and rapid fire retorts, that somehow is reminiscent of Beckett on steroids...

The Day Oct 18 - Oct 19, 2019  
UCLA Campus The Day

World-renowned avant-garde cellist Maya Beiser, has been described as “a force of nature” by The Boston Globe and a “rock star” by Rolling Stone. Together with iconic modern dance choreographer Lucinda Childs and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang, they have joined forces to create an evocative, bold, highly collaborative new work entitled THE DAY. A meditation on two journeys — the mortal passage of time, followed by the eternal, post-mortal voyage of the soul — THE DAY explores universal themes not easily grappled with— memory, aging, death and the survival of the soul — through the lens of mundane daily calendar appointments and the visceral, poetic languages of music and dance.

One of the survivors, Raja, having lived through it all, teaching the children when there was nothing to teach with, helping to give them hope when there was little enough reason for hope, creating a little world of laughter, of flowers and butterflies behind the barbed wire, tells the true story of the children. It's her play and it's theirs. There were no butterflies at Terezin, of course, but for the children, butterflies became a symbol of defiance, making it possible for them to live on and play happily while waiting to be transported.

Anyone in costume will put their name in a hat, and we’ll draw parts throughout the show. So, dress up as a horror movie monster and come ready to perform!
 
   
Silent Sky Oct 21  
Sierra Madre Playhouse Silent Sky
 
When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love. The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries.
