Boeing Boeing Jul 19 - Aug 4, 2019  
The Complex Boeing Boeing
 
A hit comedy similar in vein to Shakespeare’s comedies of merry misadventures and mistaken identities, Boeing Boeing tells the exploits of French bachelor Bernard and his lovely female flight attendants. Three flight attendants, to be exact, from three different countries: and they all believe they’re engaged to Bernard! In the past, Bernard has been able to juggle these women due to his detailed timetable of his fiance’s flight schedules. When the situation changes and all of the women end up at his apartment on the same day, Bernard (with help from his bewildered friend Robert) struggles to keep them from learning the truth. Will the lying lothario be able to keep up this charade, or will a disaster occur? As they say: all’s well that ends well!
 
   
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.

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.
