HM157 is having an Ides Of March (March 15) event called Dadaismus. It will include performances from Bart Davenport and Audry Deluxe and lots more. It’s quite a variety of performers, too.
A week ago from today was our February installment of L.A.S., our LA based storytelling series. Because that month is always connoted by love, we thought that we’d have people share LA love stories. Those range from stories of loving the city to falling in (and out of) love in the city—and it was quite a great time. In case you missed the event or simply are curious, we have the podcast for you: check it out!
Though I lived in NYC for 6 years, I never saw a Wooster Group production. When my friend invited me to see the Group’s remake of CRY TROJANS! (Troilus & Cressida) at REDCAT on opening night, I was thrilled. The fact that Wooster Group is premiering CRY TROJANS! in Los Angeles and not anywhere else, says A LOT about the state of performing arts here. Not only is it thriving but established venues are more confident that bringing a company like Wooster, to Los Angeles will inspire entertainment seekers to choose a live, black box theater experience over a more predictable, safer movie theater outing.
If your brain is a little dumbed down from not picking up a book lately, knowing the synopsis of Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida certainly helps fill in any confusing plot gaps you may experience while viewing CRY TROJANS.
