Lillian Disney made an initial gift of $50 million in 1987 to build a performance venue as a gift to the people of Los Angeles and a tribute to Walt Disney’s devotion to the arts and to the city. The Frank Gehry-designed building opened on October 24, 2003. Both Gehry’s architecture and the acoustics of the concert hall, designed by Yasuhisa Toyota, have been praised, in contrast to its predecessor, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

The Grove Theatre presents One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. A dramatic story that follows Randle McMurphy, a boisterous, charming, life-affirming rogue who contrives a plan to avoid hard labor and serve the rest of his prison sentence  in a more relaxed mental hospital environment rather than in a prison. Once there, he clashes with the head nurse, and manages to accomplish what the medical profession had failed to do, leading many of the other patients out of introversion. McMurphy stages numerous revolts against the head nurse, and his defiance, which starts as sport, quickly develops into a grim power struggle with the institution.

unnamed (1)

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is the unforgettable story of a mental hospital and its inhabitants in a world where sanity means conformity and following the rules is the only way to survive. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a powerful exploration of the beauty and the danger of being an original. Dale Wasserman adapted One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest from the novel by Ken Kesey.  The play opened on Broadway in 1963 with Kirk Douglas as McMurphy, Ed Ames as the Chief and Gene Wilder as Billy. After opening on Broadway, The New York Times called the play “scarifying and powerful,” while The New York Daily News called it “funny, touching, and exciting.” Directed by Barry Devine, and featuring a talented cast, Cuckoo’s Nest is not to be missed.
