The New One Oct 23 - Nov 24, 2019  
Ahmanson Theatre The New One
 
Mike Birbiglia has a new one. It’s called The New One. He’s made you laugh in Sleepwalk With Me (it was a play presented by Nathan Lane, then a movie, THEN a book), My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, and Thank God for Jokes. (He was also really funny in that one season of Orange Is the New Black. And in Billions. And Broad City.) Now he’s at the Ahmanson telling a new story in a new way with the same heart and humor we’ve come to expect. Lin-Manuel Miranda called The New One “as perfect a night as you’re gonna get.” Do not miss The New One. Some people say it’s his best one. (It was John Mulaney. Also Vogue.)

If order is to be maintained, deviance must be extinguished and imagination co-opted. Dan works hard and tries stubbornly to survive in this strange dream world but finds nothing is as it seems to be except the authority that rules it. Don’t miss the world premiere of this new play from one of Europe’s most remarkable playwrights.

An Instance of This Nov 1 - Nov 2, 2019  
Highways Performance Space and Gallery An Instance of This
 
An Instance of This is an ephemeral micro-community made up of jose e abad, Carlos Medina-Diaz, Justin Morris and randy reyes, to hold a spatiotemporal experience filled with live actions, material bodies and digital media. Based on shared and individual experiences around existing in the margins of society, this performance jam is a contemplative, disorienting and celebratory act of embracing the dynamism and multidimensionality of queer people of color. As we tread through our lived experiences our paths often cross, interspersed at times for years or just a brief moment; nevertheless, these intersecting rhizomatic constellations serve as opportunities to weave together a support system and ecology of being that is in direct relation, opposition, and in subversive dialogue with the oppressive social systems of our daily lives.
