The Athena Cats, a collective of Southern California female playwrights and directors, presents a madcap romantic comedy that's a perfect escape for the holidays. Liberal Sara and right-winger Jefferson are polar opposites about everything — except their love and devotion for their two, newly deceased, filthy-rich best friends. Trapped by the time constraints of their friends' will, the two are forced to spend the next 16 days, 21 hours, and 32 minutes together, scattering ashes across Europe. Whether they make it or not, the audience is in for a bumpy and very funny ride.
Show begins when the director asks the audience to suggest a popular film title and then the cast, right there on the spot, improvise the "black version" of that film complete with its improvised soundtrack, dance numbers, DVD extras, audition reels & more.
The Black Version is a completely improvised show that started at The Groundlings Theatre in LA in 2010 to sold out crowds and great reviews. Rolling Stone magazine calls the show "Hot" and the cast a "Comedic A-Team", LA Weekly says the show is "Red Hot" and "Scores more than it's share of belly laughs" while the LA Times calls the show "A Winner"!
Return of the UN-Holiday tradition
We just couldn't shut them up…so for the 14th straight year, accusations, rumors, and all-out attacks are (still) flying fast and furious around the toy shop. Hear the truth straight from the reindeer who know Santa best. When a doe says "no," she means "no."
WARNING!! This show contains FOUL-MOUTHED REINDEER and very inappropriate ADULT HUMOR! Definitely no kids or anyone who doesn't want to see the dark side of Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, and the North Pole!
What kind of tango partner are you looking for — one that will glide with you above all of life's messiness, or someone who will stay with you on the ground? It's only their first date, but Ramona and Khalil's time is already running out. Ramona has cancer. Khalil is selling his identity to a corporation. Typical relationship stuff. While they both seem set to vanish off this earth, they unexpectedly find themselves preparing to give love one more try. This warm, witty, and wise romantic comedy asserts that even in the potentially hazardous, high-stakes game of love and relationships…the risk is worth it if it means finding your favorite dancing companion.
Recommendation: ages 13 and above. Contains adult language.
The haves and the have-nots come face-to-face in this Broadway hit. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole), this Tony-nominated dramatic comedy finds struggling single mother Margie Walsh coming to terms with the reality that her South Boston neighborhood offers the same lack of opportunity it always has. For most people, it's a place where this month's paycheck covers last month's bills — and church bingo is a big night out on the town. Facing eviction, Margie's forced to turn to an old high school flame for help. But he's now a successful physician living in the suburbs…and Margie is way out of her element there. With a keen eye for character and an uncanny sense of humor, Good People explores the struggles, shifting loyalties, and unshakable hope that comes with having next to nothing in America.
Recommendation: ages 13 and above. Contains adult language.
Live Rude Girls is an all-female sketch comedy revue that carefully considers the question of whether women can be funny, takes the paper the question was written on, tears it up, pours gasoline all over it, and uses it to start a dumpster fire protesting the defunding of Planned Parenthood. The cast fearlessly tackles topics like body shaming, street harassment, and the near-constant barrage of dick pics in this no-holds-barred satirical view on the female experience. The cast of Live Rude Girls has been described as "shrill," "prettier if they smiled," and "2/10: Would Not Bang."

Winner of Drama-Logue awards for outstanding playwright and outstanding direction, A Love Affair is a hilarious, daring, and more-than-a-touch-racy comedy that takes you on the roller-coaster ride of a 38-year (and counting) marriage — the successes, the disappointments, the sex, the traumas, the traumas about sex, and the budget and the children and the adventure of casting your lot with another human being…for life. Whatever your state of affairs, A Love Affair will tickle your funny bone and warm your heart. From the team that brought you the smash hits Almost Perfect, Aspirin & ELEPHANTS, and 2 Across, A Love Affair is "FLAWLESS! This theatre just never disappoints!" (The Tolucan Times).

People are protesting at an unprecedented degree, female Uber drivers are taking drastic measures to protect themselves, and California might secede from the Union — if we don't get nuked first.

When The SantaLand Diaries was first broadcast, it generated more requests for tapes than any story in NPR Morning Edition's history except the death of Red Barber.
