More Guns!  
Second City More Guns!
 
The National Rifle Association is here to save the day -- through song and dance! Praise the lord and NRA-men! Ron Barkley is the head lobbyist for the NRA, and his life is real tough -- his daughter is a liberal socialist with a penchant for protests, and for some reason, the entire country is up in arms about gun control. But when Ron prays to God for divine intervention, he receives a magical gun that turns people -- into guns. Because after all, if you've got problems, the solution is always More Guns! With songs like "Good Guy With A Gun," "Everybody Do The Lobby!" and "Liberal Love," More Guns! A New Musical Comedy About the NRA! is a satire of the NRA, the "woke" left, and all those boring moderates in between. This is a show for the whole family, and by whole family we mean adults only (16+). With book, music, and lyrics by Philip Labes and Michael O'Konis, see More Guns! at The Second City in Hollywood.

Othello  
A Noise Within Othello
 
As part of their 2018-2019 theme "Let Me In," about the deeply human need to be understood for who we are, Pasadena’s A Noise Within theater company presents Othello. Arguably Shakespeare’s most intimate of family tragedies, it’s the tale of the breakdown of a man who has everything — power, position and love — only to find his world decimated through intense mind games with his malicious ensign. Prescient in its searing social commentary of prejudice, betrayal and thwarted ambition, Shakespeare’s thunderous drama examines who we trust and the price we pay when we make the wrong choice.
