Dorothy's Adventures In Oz  
Santa Monica Playhouse Dorothy's Adventures In Oz
 
Dorothy's Adventures In Oz. A vibrant, colorful family-friendly musical comedy, the hilarious and heart-warming internationally acclaimed DOROTHY'S ADVENTURES IN OZ, a reworking of the beloved L. Frank Baum stories, is filled with music and dance, fun special effects, laughter and love, as audiences follow Dorothy and her companions along the windy road to that mystical place where dreams really do come true and nothing is as it seems, doing battle with the vain but glorious Queen Coo-ee-oh, joining forces with a vagabond princess who is revolting (although she doesn't look it), meeting a Patchwork Girl and a Rainbow Maiden, facing such looming monsters as war, drought and mortgages, learning a great deal about the world around them, and even a little bit about themselves.
   
Drought  
Studio C Artists Drought
 
In ancient times, in ancient Greece, lived Caenis - daughter of Elatus and Hippea of Thessaly. Caenis was the most beautiful of all the maidens, made more beautiful by equal charm and knowledge. Poseidon, god of the sea, master of waves, keeper of tides, took her. Changed her. Drained her. And grants her one wish... Her wish? --To be transformed into a man, so as never to suffer again. Drought is a modern retelling of this forgotten tale. Using electronic music, digital landscapes and experimental prose we give voice to a voiceless character. A lot of voice, in a dynamic piece of gig-theatre. For how long will these atrocities happen to women in stories? For how long will we listen? Maybe it's time we write our own mythology. It is time to end this Drought. Ages 16+
   
An Enemy of the People  
Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum An Enemy of the People
 
Artistic Director Ellen Geer moves Henrik Ibsen’s powerful play from a small town in the south of Norway to a small town in the American South. It’s 1980 and a dinner party is interrupted at the home of Dr. Stockmann, the patriarch of a multi-racial family and medical officer at a popular new tourist spa. A letter brings the bad news that the water at the spa is contaminated, threatening the health of visitors and the town’s economy. Powerful people have difficult choices to make in Theatricum’s adaptation of this classic — and extraordinarily timely — struggle of the individual versus society.
   
Exit the King  
City Garage Theatre Exit the King
 
A deluded king. A failing kingdom. Two squabbling queens vying for his attention. An obsequious doctor. A dim-witted but loyal guard and a mouthy servant. In Eugene Ionescos darkly comic masterpiece we witness the final hours of megalomaniac King Berenger the First. His monstrous ego has kept him alive for four centuries, but now, Queen Marguerite calmly informs him, the time has come to die. His kingdom begins to collapse around himthe seas rise, nature rebels, crops wither, the young flee, the old fail, foreign enemies close in. Berenger rages, pleads, denies, bargains, supported by the lovely and loyal Queen Marie. But Queen Marguerite, coolly efficient, aided by her smiling henchman, the doctor, draws the king relentlessly closer to his final moment on earth. At once broadly comic and deeply unsettling, the play alternates between Monty Python-style slapstick and haunting echoes of Shakespearean tragedy. In this, the most Beckett-like of all Ionescos work, we follow an existential journey into the most terrifying landscape of all: our own mortality. In a new translation by City Garage founders Frederique Michel and Charles Duncombe.

Getting away with murder can be so much fun ... and there's no better proof than the knock-'em-dead, uproarious, most-nominated show of the 2014 Broadway season, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. This Broadway hit tells the story of commoner Monty Navarro, who finds out he's heir to the family fortune and an earldom in the lofty D'Ysquith family. Well, he would be the heir, if not for the eight relatives who come before him in the line of succession. Monty is a man with an abundance of ambition and a lack of moral fiber, so he tries to jump forward in the line of succession by eliminating all of the relatives who stand in his way. If that's not enough, he also has to juggle a mistress and a fiancee. A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder​ is a murderous romp filled with unforgettable music, non-stop laughs and a scene-stealing role for one actor playing all eight of the doomed heirs who meet their ends in the most creative and side-splitting ways.
