Adapted from Daniel Wallace’s novel and Tim Burton’s acclaimed film, and featuring spine-tinglingly beautiful music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family and The Wild Party), Big Fish is a fantastical musical that illustrates the larger-than-life anecdotes of Edward Bloom, a man nearing the end of his life. This fact has compelled his grown son Will to embark on an adventure of his own — to unravel his real dad from the myths of his tall tales. Filled with magic, love, luck, and crazy coincidences, this rollicking fantasy set in the American South is a tribute to the power of dreaming big. Taken from the website.

The City of Happymont is your typical small but growing city, and while the Happymont City Council tries to keep order and get business done, the Public, or at least those who participate in Public Comment, takes up the Council’s time with Conspiracy theories, rants, and musical numbers. The council tries to get rid of Public Comment but the Public won’t give it up without a fight. It all boils down to one man who has never spoken before giving the speech of his life and saving Public Comment. Taken from the website.

 Interview with the cast of 3D Theatricals  Oklahoma playing a the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center and the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts. The 3-D Theatricals’ take on “Oklahoma!” …is SHOCKING. It is either bad taste or pure genius (and whichever it is, is completely up to you). Is it the story of a Jim Crow Negro being killed for harassing a white woman? Do the audience members feel like they’re part of lynch mob after watching a trial? Do black lives matter? You may never see it done like this again – no one would be courageous enough to show it! Personally, I love this disturbing take on “Oklahoma!” – Ashton Marcus
