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 New One  
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.)

Picasso at the Lapin Agile  
Whittier Center Theatre Picasso at the Lapin Agile
 
Two geniuses walk into a bar … That is the premise of this absurdist comedy of big ideas from the pen of wild-and-crazy Steve Martin. The time is 1904, and the Lapin Agile is a Paris hang-out for artists, philosophers, and neighborhood drinkers. On this particular night, though, some big brains are going to collide and the questions of what constitutes genius and how art and science influence our everyday lives will be explored by the bar’s regulars, with some inspiration from none other than Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein. You’ll laugh, you may cry and you will definitely think! See Picasso at the Lapin Agile at the Whittier Center Theatre
