Falsettos  
Ahmanson Theatre Falsettos
 
Fresh off its Tony-nominated Broadway revival, Falsettos arrives at the Ahmanson in L.A. as "an exceptional production of a perfect musical" (The New York Times). The story revolves around a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, his lover, his about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. At times both hilarious and achingly poignant, Falsettos shines an ahead-of-its-time spotlight on the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family ... and a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories. A hit when it premiered on Broadway in 1992, this always-timely show won Tony Awards for its book by James Lapine and William Finn (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) and its score, also by Finn. Recommended for ages 13+ for mature themes and language.

The Elephant Man  
El Portal Theatre The Elephant Man
 
“In 2011, I contracted the Bell's Palsy virus. The entire left side of my face was paralyzed. I had to tape my left eye open during the day, and tape it shut at night. My nose was being pulled across my face by the strong muscles on the right side, and that made my left nostril collapse. I would drool and slur my speech. Out in public during the early stage of this condition; I was met by sympathetic looks, gasps, and a few mean spirited passing comments. But one comment stuck; "Hey, it's the Elephant Man"! Those words never left me, and what was meant as an insult became a gift that made me discover “ The Elephant Man”, a play by Bernard Pomerance. The relevance and power of his play continues to deepen four decades after its debut. Needless to say, I did not choose this play, oddly enough it chose me, and I am grateful.”

Incognito  
Son Of Semele Incognito
 
What makes us us? Nick Payne’s ingenious, time-traveling adventure weaves together three personal quests to get to the heart of the mind: a wannabe research pioneer absconds with Einstein’s brain; a newlywed fights to hang onto the memory of his love after a botched operation; and a freshly divorced neuroscientist struggles to find hope in the face of cold hard facts. Incognito features four actors giving life to a globe-hopping cast of colorful characters. Says The New York Times, “It feels right that so few should incarnate so many, since one of Mr. Payne’s implicit points here is that we’re all siblings under the skull. That philosophy means you’re likely to identify with every one of these characters, all groping for certain knowledge and all destined to be thwarted.”

La Traviata  
Dorothy Chandler Pavilion La Traviata
 
There's a reason that Verdi's tragic romance La Traviata is one of the most popular operas on the planet. Of course, there's the music, with exquisite arias like "Sempre libera" and the mournful "Addio del passato." Then there's the bittersweet love story of the beautiful, pleasure-loving yet frail courtesan Violetta (played by soprano Adela Zaharia), who unexpectedly finds true (and ultimately tragic) love with a younger man. But above all, what sets La Traviata in a league of its own is its humanity and its heart. It's a truly timeless tale of moral hypocrisy and selfless sacrifice, and in the character of Violetta, Verdi has given us one of opera's most fascinating heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth. Now LA Opera brings this iconic 1853 opera to the stage -- and you can get tickets first with this exclusive pre-sale.

The Last Five Years  
Cupcake Theater The Last Five Years
 
Before it became a feature film starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, The Last Five Years began as a stirring stage musical that was hailed as one of the 10 best shows of 2001 by Time magazine. Told through inventive and heartrending songs, The Last Five Years is a two-person show that navigates the ins and outs -- and beginning and ending -- of a marriage. Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade), this Drama Desk Award winner is the story of a couple's five-year relationship, from the thrilling pangs of new love to their painful final separation. There is, however, a twist: The man retells the relationship from beginning to end, while the woman relates their story in reverse. The two characters' emotional timelines converge only once -- at their wedding in the middle of the show. See this bittersweet song cycle at North Hollywood's Cupcake Theater. This show is open to all ages, but the material is PG-13 in nature. It is not recommended for young children.
