Anderson Lena and the Things That Don't Matter  
Stephanie Feury Studio (SFS) Theatre Anderson Lena and the Things That Don't Matter
 
In 2012, researchers at Northwestern University concluded that when we recall a memory, we're not actually the recalling the memory, but rather the memory of the last time we remembered it, thus irreparably distorting our perception of the past. This is a play about that. With an offbeat yet authentic voice (and a structure to match), "Anderson Lena and the Things That Don't Matter" explores the unsettlingly distinct possibility that objective truth is about as real as a fluffy pink unicorn. It starts off simply enough: a girl sitting alone in her bedroom. But, much like life, this story is nowhere near as simple as it should be. Three characters, two timelines, and one room later, you'll leave questioning every memory you ever held dear. But, you know, in a cool way.

Black Super Hero Magic Mama  
Geffen Playhouse Black Super Hero Magic Mama
 
When Sabrina loses her 14-year-old son to a police shooting, she’s unable to face the ensuing flurry of media attention. Crippled by grief, she retreats into a fantasy world of superheroes and arch-villains that inhabit the comic book created by her son before his death. Assuming the role of The Maasai Angel rather than the expected part of the grieving mother, Sabrina battles her enemies along the way to peace. This world premiere play helmed by lauded director Robert O’Hara (Barbecue, Bootycandy, Eclipsed) is both heartbreaking and highly inventive. With unbridled imagination, Los Angeles-based playwright Inda Craig-Galván’s Black Super Hero Magic Mama gives us the hero we have been waiting for. Don’t miss this show at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles.
   
Blues For Mister Charlie  
LOFT Ensemble-Sherman Oaks Blues For Mister Charlie
 
A sensation in its New York premiere at the Actor's Studio, this searing drama by one of America's leading writers retains all its power to this day. Richard, a black man who is a former junkie returns to his parochial southern town and infuriates the denizens with his incendiary talk and actions. When he is killed by a poor, illiterate, white man, the murder, the eulogy, the trial, and the acquittal are presented in an abstract dramatic form of time, fury, and passion. Said the New York Times, “Fires of fury in its belly, tears of anguish in its eyes, and a roar of protest in its throat, [the play] throbs with fierce energy and passion.”

The Bourgeois Gentleman  
City Garage Theatre The Bourgeois Gentleman
 
Wealthy and foolish Monsieur Jourdain is in love with the Countess Dorimene and aches to be what he is nota member of the aristocracy. Determined to overcome his low birth with an education in high style he unwittingly surrounds himself with charlatans and swindlers who gleefully take his money and prey on his innocence. Ingenious servants, pedantic masters, devious nobles, and earnest young lovers all propel this delightful satire of nouveau riche social climbers. And, in the end, is the nobility to which Jourdain so ardently aspires all that admirable? In this acclaimed translation by Frederique Michel and Charles Duncombe the play is re-imagined for contemporary audiences, transporting us into an extravagant fantasy world of song, dance, and upper class nonsense.
   
Canuck as F*CK  
Second City Canuck as F*CK
 
Canadians aren’t nice and polite; we're passive-aggressive a-holes who manage to keep a low profile because we spend half the year in hibernation. We can't pick a fight with “Big Brother to the South” because we spend more per capita on doughnuts and toques than on our military. Enough is enough! It's time to speak our truth, and tell you what we really think a-boot the state of the world. Sorry, not sorry! This original premium sketch show was written and performed by Jason DeRosse, Ayumi Iizuka, Paul PK Kingston, Allison Price, and Leslie Seiler. Directed by Doug Morency, the Assistant Director is John David DeFour and the Musical Director is Tony Gonzalez. See Canuck as F*CK at Second City Studio Theatre in Los Angeles.

Beloved musical CINDERELLA returns in 2019!
