If Jeff writes the better story, he gets to keep his job. If Mary wins, she will replace the ace newshound. Super-rich lady Delores suspects that her son Chauncey’s fiancée Gloria is a fortune hunter and wants the reporters to expose her. Chauncey is not the brightest bulb in the chandelier, and Delores suspects he’s being played for a patsy. Can Jeff or Mary dig up the dirt?

Soldier Songs  
Ford Amphitheatre Soldier Songs
 
Soldier Songs is a groundbreaking multimedia piece from award-winning composer David T. Little and filmmaker Bill Morrison that combines elements of theatre, opera, rock and film to trace changing perceptions of war in both our society and by those who experience it. Little created the libretto using recorded interviews with veterans of five wars. The nameless soldier is followed through three phases of life: Youth (playing war games); Warrior (time served in the military); and Elder (aged, wise, reflective). Multimedia elements are employed as a critique of the media's ability to both glamorize and falsify the realities of combat. A monodrama for baritone and chamber orchestra, Soldier Songs stars David Adam Moore, who created the role of the Soldier at the work's 2008 premiere at Le Poisson Rouge in New York. Enjoy this powerful performance at Hollywood's Ford Theatres.

Troilus and Cressida  
Richard Goad Theatre Troilus and Cressida
 
One of Shakespeare's most rare tragedies, Troilus and Cressida is probably the most modern and ready-made for today's audience. Author and literary scholar Joyce Carol Oates remarked that it strikes the modern reader as a contemporary investigation of numerous infidelities, its criticism of tragic pretensions, above all, its implicit debate between what is essential in human life and what is only existential are themes of the 20th century. Open your mind to Shakespeare's modern ideas at the Long Beach Shakespeare Company's Richard Goat Theatre.
