Linda Vista Jan 9 - Jan 20, 2019  
Mark Taper Forum Linda Vista
 
Wheeler just turned 50. His marriage is over, his job is mundane, and the best years of his life appear to be behind him. A move from the cot in his ex-wife's garage to his own apartment opens up new possibilities for love and sex -- complicated, painful and hilarious. Full of opinions, yet short on self-examination, Wheeler must reconcile the man he has become with the man he wants to be in this major new play from the writer of August: Osage County. In this Steppenwolf Theatre Company production, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Tracy Letts delivers a "male midlife crisis tragicomedy of epic proportions" (Chicago Sun Times) in this "smart, very funny, hugely entertaining play" (Daily Herald) that resonates with a new sense of sobriety in the wake of #MeToo. Coming to the stage in 2019 at the Mark Taper Forum.

1976 Jan 11 - Feb 3, 2019  
La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts 1976
 
If Hamilton's mix of hummable tunes and fascinating history has left you itching to learn more about our nation's founding, then this Tony-winning Revolutionary musical drama just might be the ticket. 1776 takes you behind the scenes of the historic signing of the Declaration of Independence, as John Adams tried to persuade his fellow forefathers to vote for freedom from British rule. Also making appearances are colonial superstars like Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock and Abigail Adams, along with a variety of crabby drunks, befuddled secretaries and assorted sycophants who also populate the proceedings. Pairing a funny, insightful story with a striking score, 1776 is a triumphant celebration of the American spirit that'll stir romance, comedy and conflict into a musical melting pot at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts.
 
   
Independence, The True Story of Dr. Mary Walker Jan 12  
Theatre West Independence, The True Story of Dr. Mary Walker
 
Her ordeal as a prisoner of war had lifelong ramifications for her physical well-being, but she did not slow down. If anything, she overcompensated and became busier than ever. A militant believer in the equivalency of men and women, this extended to her appearance: she attired herself in “reform dress,” a skirt over trousers, which she wore for comfort and freedom of movement. She was a feminist before the term was coined. Her personal challenges included a philandering husband, sexism from dismissive men, and resentment from women who saw her as competitive. Her life was full of dramatic possibilities, and it is finally the subject of a solo play, Independence, The True Story of Dr. Mary Walker. Suggested for audiences age 10 to Adult.
