Death With Dignity...Comes In A Milkshake Oct 18 - Nov 9, 2019  
Theatre 68 Death With Dignity...Comes In A Milkshake
 
A Therapy session erupts into full-blown mental anarchy, as a "Doctor's" office is suddenly commandeered, by patients without appointments, insurance, homes, and an ability to survive in the real world. 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 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.)

The Best Man Nov 1 - Dec 8, 2019  
Lounge Theatre The Best Man
 
An ideally timed race to the finish line between two candidates at the Presidential National Nominating Convention gets personal. Sexual indiscretions threaten one of the front-runners career and marriage, as the other tries to live by their principles while faced with health issues that threaten his vote-winning potential. Vying for support from the outgoing president, both stay primed for battle, out front and behind the scenes, in this cynically humorous recap of the U.S. election process.
 
   
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.

The Broadwater Black Box Defenders
 
Who watches the watchmen? Iceland has endured and survived waves of invaders, occupiers and pirates that have come and gone but the descendants of its original settlers are still there.

Three American G.I.s are shipwrecked on the remote island of Hrisey off Iceland’s northern coast. They have missing weapons, few supplies, a broken radio and must rely on the locals for survival. To make matters worse, Hrisey is in the throes of the worst storm anyone can remember. As the GIs struggle to cope with both the island and its people, the lines between myth and reality become increasingly blurred. The soldiers, Icelanders, and the land itself are forced to ask just who is defending whom.

Jitney Nov 22 - Dec 8, 2019  
Mark Taper Forum Jitney
 
In 2017, Jitney became the final play in two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson’s masterful The American Century Cycle to be seen on Broadway. Set in the early 1970s, this richly textured play follows a group of men trying to eke out a living by driving unlicensed cabs, or jitneys. When the city of Pittsburgh threatens to board up the business and the boss’ son returns from prison, tempers flare, potent secrets are revealed, and the fragile threads binding these people together may come undone at last. Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Lackawanna Blues), one of Wilson’s finest interpreters, this acclaimed production of Jitney received six Tony nominations, winning Best Revival of a Play, and winning the 2017 Drama League, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Revival of a Play.

Stick around after the show for selfies with the cast.
