Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and — of course — flying sardines! Taken from the website.

Exceptional Show! LA Theatre Bites Recommended!

In the final months before 9/11, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer has reunited with his two sisters to celebrate their father’s seventy-fifth birthday. Each deeply invested in their own version of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael’s controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate—with biting humor and razor-sharp insight—how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning. IF I FORGET tells a powerful tale of a family and a culture at odds with itself. Taken from the website.

LA Theatre Bites Presents: HOUSE OF DOGS – An Original Audio Play

There is nothing more important than family–at least that’s what Jake’s mother says. With Mom out of town, 14-year old Jake is given no choice but to stay with his needlessly strict relatives. But what begins as a sub-par sleepover quickly has Jake realizing he has more in common with the kennel dogs than he ever imagined.

Lavender Men

Written by: Roger Q. Mason
Directed by: Lovell Holder

Enter the historical fantasia of Taffeta, a self-proclaimed “fabulous queer creation of color,” as she invades the private world of Abraham Lincoln to confront issues of LGBTQ+ inclusion and visibility that still challenge us today.

August 6 – September 4,2022

A searingly innovative and comedic take on an oft-told story, DI LADY DI eschews the fairytale glamor of the people’s princess to illuminate her struggles in a paternalistic society and dysfunctional family. Under pressure to sacrifice self and conform to oppressive external demands, the Queen of people’s hearts bravely relinquishes illusory dreams to emerge from her crucible-chrysalis as an empowered woman of influence, transcending celebrity and transforming the monarchy. DI LADY DI reveals what is under the looking glass, taking an unflinching gaze into the heart and mind of an icon in turmoil, evocatively expressing lessons learned from her private journey. Through beautiful, multi-layered harmonies and incisive lyrics, DI LADY DI celebrates the transformative possibilities of looking inward, overcoming familial trauma, and the ineffable power of a woman’s intuition.

An important inspiring story of heroism that was left out of the history books.

Did you know that Indians played a vital part in the allied victory of WW2. Did you know that an Indian princess fought the Nazis?

Meet NOOR INAYAT KHAN, Sufi Royalty turned British spy, thorn in Hitlers side & the Gestapo’s worst nightmare.

Now cornered by the Nazis with nothing with death assured to her. In her final moments she will remind us who she is, why she matters and why she will always be in part of history. She fought alongside her enemy, the British to fight a greater threat – the evisceration of life as we know it.  Taken from the website.

MADE IN AMERICA is an hour-long solo show about a brave first-generation Japanese artist, Teruko’s shocking, raw autobiography. She chooses to immigrate to the States from Japan by her own will for a reason, encounters many odd and dangerous situations, faces obstacles and learns how to survive in America.

This show is about humanity. It describes beautifully about how the humane American system helped her and did everything for her to survive. This show needs to be seen and heard because it does bring awareness of Women, First-Generation Immigrants, Mental Health, Domestic Violence, Child Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Suicide and anyone who suffers and needs help. Taken from the website.

Wow!!! This is why art exists.
This show is amazing! Her ability to tell her story in such a funny yet powerful way is truly a gift. To turn such hard subject matter into a piece of art that touches the human heart in a way that it reveals who she is and touch your our experience is truly an art form. GO SEE IT! best life performance I have seen in years.
