Mistakes Were Made Jan 18 - Apr 5, 2020  
Santa Monica Playhouse Mistakes Were Made
 
Mistakes Were Made - coulda-woulda-shoulda. Dick's mistake: He let a sexy, blue-eyed winker threaten his marriage. Jeff's mistake: He turned down a dream job, then later, screamed, "You idiot!" Mel's mistake: He hired a famous money manager, now famous for stealing money. Dick's wife's mistake: She trusted him, then learned of his affair and had one too. NOBODY'S PERFECT! But mistakes can be fixed, between husbands and wives, girlfriends and boyfriends, fathers and sons. From the acclaimed team that brought you Almost Perfect, Aspirin & ELEPHANTS and A Love Affair, and reuniting Mr. Mayer with acclaimed veteran (and frequent Mayer) director Chris DeCarlo, this world premiere romantic comedy will have you laughing, crying, and running home to fix that one mistake that's been gnawing at you for years!
 
   
Love In Bloom Jan 18 - Mar 1, 2020  
Santa Monica Playhouse Love In Bloom
 
Santa Monica Playhouse presents its acclaimed musical hit Love In Boom, the “captivating” (stagehappenings.com) garden of a thousand and one theatrical delights returns to celebrate its 10th anniversary to insure that all's well that ends as you like it. Santa Monica Mirror calls Love In Bloom “an upbeat romp.” “Delightful whimsy… a bold ambitious piece of musical theatre” says the L.A. Weekly. Magic and mayhem, fops and fairies, mistaken identity, romance and humor abound in this tongue-firmly-in-cheek evening of theatre. The eight-member cast, in the renowned Actors’ Repertory Theatre commedia-carnival style, creates a host of over thirty characters, bringing to the stage all the stuff that dreams (and musicals) are made on. “As homage to Shakespeare, master of pantomime Marcel Marceau, Commedia dell’arte and conventions of classical theater in general, it soars. And by the time the lights fade to black, you will not be able to fight the feeling that all you need is love.” UCLA Daily Bruin
 
   
It's Only A Play Jan 18 - Feb 9, 2020  
Morgan-Wixson Theatre It's Only A Play
 
Written by four-time Tony winner Terrence McNally (Ragtime), this backstage comedy is a satirical send-up of show business and its often-eccentric practitioners. Taking place at an opening-night party, the frazzled playwright stresses over whether his play will be a success. The irreverent farce “about the comedy of Broadway” at Santa Monica’s Morgan-Wixson Theatre is alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender.

Beautiful - The Carole King Musical Jan 19 - Jan 20, 2020  
Fox Performing Arts Center Beautiful - The Carole King Musical
 
Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock 'n' roll. But it wasn't until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice. BEAUTIFUL tells the inspiring true story of King's remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.

Combining murder and mayhem with zany humor, Arsenic and Old Lace is an uproarious black comedy that gives “hospitality” a bad name.

When their nephew Mortimer finds out about the corpses in the cellar, he’s in a frantic race to deal with his aunts, his fiancée, and two crazy brothers – one who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt and the other who has had plastic surgery to resemble Boris Karloff! Don’t miss one of America’s most popular classic comedies in a spiffy new production that will slay you with laughter.
