Law and Order: The Musical!  
The Broadwater Black Box Law and Order:  The Musical!
 
A grisly murder has taken place, and cops and lawyers can't stop screwing up their quest for justice. Who killed the seemingly saintly housewife turned prostitute? Is it mob related? A closeted gay foodie? A pompous doorman? Each twist leads to more absurdity and perhaps some insight into what truly ails our criminal justice system. Think Airplane!... with songs and social commentary. For fans of the original beloved series, there are winks and jokes a plenty. For all the hilarity in the new spoof, however, it’s also an edgy and engaging whodunit that will keep you guessing until the very last scene. The action is scored with ten eclectic and original songs.
   
Love In Bloom  
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

The show follows her journey as she looks for the bits and pieces of herself she left behind when she stepped into her role as Mother — buried under mountains of toys and traditions. In this dynamic and often hilarious piece, April Wish has crafted a love letter to her daughter, Clementine, as well as to the little girl she used to be herself. "I have never seen a better, more emotionally searing description of motherhood and the impossible task that entails… Simply unforgettable. " — Joy Bennett, Jewish Journal.
