Frances Hodgson Burnett’s beloved victorian classic, The Secret Garden, blossoms anew in this enchanting musical by Pulitzer Prize-winner Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon. When young Mary Lennox loses her parents to a cholera outbreak in India, she is sent to live with her uncle, hermit Archibald Craven, who lives in an imposing, secluded manor on the British heath. Inside the haunting house upon the hill, Mary finds a reclusive, long-suffering collection of souls. Since her aunt Lily’s death, Mary’s uncle has pushed away his surviving loved ones, leaving his bedridden son, Colin, alone. Sickly Colin, hidden away in the depths of the manner, bears the guilt of his mother’s death on his crippled shoulders. When Mary discovers her Aunt Lily’s hidden garden, locked shot and overgrown with vines, stubborn Mary is determined to revive the beauty that once was. Surrounded by spirits from the past, who both warn and welcome her, determined Mary begins to peel away the layers of sadness that cover the house and the garden, showing us the power that “one small girl” can have when she “wants things to grow.” Taken from the website.

Over 10 days in April 2018, nearly 300 actors performed in 26 productions of monologues, based on stories from people who have been homeless. The productions were seen by nearly 2,000 people in venues all around Los Angeles, raising approximately $55,000 for The Midnight Mission.

This year, from April 26 to May 5, Homeward LA will be staging new stories from those who strive to find their way home in 50 productions across the city. Join us as we inspire the community to come together and end homelessness.

Tickets are $20 and all proceeds go to The Midnight Mission, a nonprofit on Skid Row that provides shelter, food, education and more to LA’s homeless population. If you cannot attend, please consider donating to the cause via the donate button below. Taken from the website.

In this “barnburner of a play” (The Washington Post), two extraordinary women square off in a high-stakes academic debate over race, reputation and who gets the final word on how American history is written. When university professor Janine and her brilliant student Zoe don’t see eye to eye, their routine office hours discussion unexpectedly careens off course—and threatens to derail their careers, lives and the status quo.

A normal production of the Broadway legend Les Misérables is overtaken by a bunch of foul-mouthed puppets who want to throw a revolution of their own. Both a loving tribute and a brutal deconstruction of the “greatest musical of all time,” this show is full of clever twists on classic songs, improvisation, and audience interaction. Warning: This production contains offensive language, sexual situations, and musical theater. It should not be viewed by children. Taken from the website.
