Review by Matthew Robinson

With her star on the rise, photographer Carrie Ann inexplicably shuts down at the pinnacle of her career. Lost, and afraid to even pick up her camera, her sudden descent is interrupted by an unexpected romance with Jeff, a trend analyst who becomes determined to help her move on, even while facing his own uncertain future.

A struggling actor is in New York for a callback for a Broadway show. He’s staying in an upscale apartment with a successful childhood friend and his wife who are locked in a troubled marriage. After blowing his audition, the distraught actor happens upon a gun in an alley. Encouraged by a homeless vet, the actor accepts the gun as his own and becomes infused with supreme confidence. The ensuing action turns his lifelong friends job and marriage upside down while also flipping his fortune allowing him to return to the theater and land the role. His high comes crashing down however when the history of his found gun is revealed to him. Ultimately, the actor and his friend must come to terms with hard truths they have each repressed in order to move forward with their lives in a better place. Taken from the website

When seven strangers—a CEO Woman, Business Man, Office Temp, Hot Girl, Musician, Maintenance Man and Goth Girl—get stuck in an elevator, it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out. When forced together, given nothing but four walls and each other, these archetypes prove to be anything but ‘typical.’ Their preconceived notions, stereotypes and judgments are challenged at every turn, as one by one, they shed their masks and reveal their truths. Taken from the website.

Ends December 31st

One of the worst plays I ever seen!
The play is awful! The venue is under construction, a lot of dust, they try to moist it with the water haze, it was hard to breeze. But I would live with that. I am big theatre fan, see a lot of plays. This is one of the worst. We left after 30 min (and it was too long). I never saw such an unprofessional performance. Looks like they got these actors from the street before the performance. Can't believe people actually like it.

Review by Matthew Robinson

Burners is set in the not-so-distant future where the elite live in luxury inside Avalon Protectorate, a fortified megacity, while the majority of the population struggles to survive in massive, polluted slums. A resistance movement has risen to fight for the rights of the poor, and their most powerful weapons are humans that have been genetically engineered to become living bombs: BURNERS.

Go see it
I wish more plays were like this. The divide between audience and players completely disappeared. I saw it in a very small theater and the set envelopes much of the seating. The atmosphere of a high tech dystopia was spot on. The set and costume design were excellent but the players really carried the show. An unexpected story and all of the background on their desperate world comes across through their interaction. Both players shed their more stereotyped mannerisms as the complexity and layers of their characters and identities were revealed. Really well done and engrossing. Go see it.

CASA 0101 Theater and TNH Productions in association with LA Councilmember Gil Cedillo are proud to present Disney’s Aladdin: Dual Language Edition! Centuries ago, the royalty in the palace of Agrabah speak one language: Spanish; and its people in the streets another: English. When the rebellious princess and a delinquent street rat meet in the market place, they find something special in one another, rise above the barriers between them, and with a little magic help create a better future. This production is performed in English and Spanish and is fully understandable in both languages. www.casa0101.org/
