Evelyn Rudie and Chris DeCarlo mold the magic, romance, humor, and grandeur of this timeless tale into a production that touches the heart — and almost the fingertips — of audience members. The show is replete with ditzy sisters, a befuddled sire, a spellbinding sorceress, and a flamboyantly foppish suitor, who all inadvertently or intentionally strew more than a few thorns along Beauty and her Beast's path. Yet loves wins out, allowing all to find their happily-ever-afters and proving that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. With a glass of complimentary rosé to toast to finding your true love — or creating the love you need — this Beauty and the Beast is the perfect late-night date-night musical. And it's FREE for one night only as part of the BFF Binge Free Festival of Theatre.
Lynchburg, Virginia. The former site of a thriving cotton mill is now an impoverished neighborhood. Deeply affected by all of the recent killings of young black men like himself, Ruffrino, a 14-year-old "militant," incites riots at school and online. More and more at odds with his mother and grandfather, the boys' anger grows beyond containment, while the family home literally sinks into the cotton field, and no one seems to notice but him.
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!
Just back from Edinburgh, where it played to standing-room-only audiences, The 730 Review hails it as "an extraordinary exploration into the world from a female perspective. An outspoken and unashamedly feminist production, portraying a female perspective on issues with a sharp, brutal honesty. From bereaved families to broken relationships, The Emotional Immune System explores moments of intense emotion, whether they be sorrow, anger, joy or anything in between. [Mary Ann] Pianka's writing crafts every monologue with a rhythmic beauty, with luscious, flowing language conveying each emotion with intricate nuance, proving deeply human and recognisable. It packs the punch of a big-hitting, established professional production."
Free for one night only as part of the Binge FREE Festival of Theatre — your new BFF — the second annual Santa Monica Fringe Festival.
Winner of Drama-Logue awards for outstanding playwright and outstanding direction, it's 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 generally about the adventure of casting your lot with another human being…for life.
After three sold-out, award-winning runs in international Fringe Festivals (NYC, Edinburgh, and Chicago), a critically acclaimed off-Broadway run, and a featured performance at the Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Valdez, Alaska, Valerie Hager's autobiographical solo play about her years stripping in the Alaskan frontier will open at Bootleg Theater. This is the first time Valerie will perform her story in the very city where her life as a stripper violently collapsed.
Naked In Alaska follows Valerie, a latchkey teenager with a meth addiction as she fights to break through into her own coming-of-age story. When her new start spirals out of control shortly after becoming sober, she runs to her childhood best friend Raven for help. An evening that begins at a strip club to make some easy cash turns into a 10-year career that tests the limits of friendship and her will to survive. Told with a rockin' '90s playlist, live pole dancing, and over a dozen characters.
