Annerin Productions has endeavored to bring fans the show they never thought they’d see. They searched the continent for committed and talented musicians who could really do it justice. This was a project that was not going to happen if it could not be done right.

The vision was not to produce a stadium show. In fact, in an effort to create the true Pink Floyd experience it would be just the opposite. Two key factors were at the core of the plan:

• Keep it intimate. Put the legendary combination of music, sound and lights in a theatre atmosphere.
• Ensure the sensual attack of Floyd. Give it top a priority along with the music.

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.

Diavolo: Architecture in Motion is an internationally renowned performance company that reinvents dance, reimagines theater, and redefines thrills through a fusion of acrobatics, martial arts, ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, and other dance programs. Diavolo’s esteemed artistic director Jacques Heim returns to Los Angeles with his extraordinary dance production of Transit Space and Trajectoire.

diavolo-logo-600x600

The hour-long, jam-packed performance at the Greek will feature performances of Transit Space and its signature piece – Trajectoire. There will be special guest appearances by spoken word artist, and Transit Space narrator Steve Connell and by renowned film composer, Nathan Wang who composes Trajectoire.

unnamed

Transit Space explores themes of feeling lost, finding a sense of purpose and coming together. Influenced by the documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys, Transit Space uses skateboard ramps as set pieces to represent an urban environment with ever-shifting physical and emotional spaces.

Trajectoire is a visceral and emotional journey through the ebb and flow of the human experience. As the performers struggle to find their balance on a voyage of destiny and destination, Trajectoire illustrates the transcendence of the human soul against all odds.

575

Diavolo explores the relationship between the danger of our environment and the fragility of the human body. The performances illuminate dance through a dynamic and powerful repertoire utilizing unique architectural creations as the focal point for dancers to confront, challenge and manipulate. Diavolo is like a live abstract painting. There is no narrative but rather strong themes that pervade the work-themes such as human struggle, fear, danger, survival, chaos, order, deconstruction, reconstruction, destiny, destination, faith and love.

Get outside and into the open summer air for Shakespeare In The Park presented by Independent Shakespeare Company LA. Located at the old zoo in Griffith Park, this is a great event for friends and family to enjoy featuring fantastic plays under the stars.

575

ISC was founded in 1998 by a group of actors who shared a passion for classical works. They were intent on rendering vivid productions of Shakespeare’s plays. Their focus was stripping back the conventions of contemporary theater and placing their attention onto the spoken word. Shakespeare produced his plays without lighting, without recorded sound, and without elaborate scenery and costumes, as do they.

One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies tells the story of a kingdom in disorder. Its rightful leader is banished, a young man is denied his due by his malevolent elder brother, and a woman is exiled from the place that has always been her home. All of their paths lead away from the “painted pomp” of the court into the heart of the forest of Arden. It’s a place where natural laws outweigh the laws of man and the force of love reigns supreme. As bitter winter passes into the bloom of spring, the residents of Arden discover that transformation is always possible, and sometimes the disguises we wear are the best way to discover who we are.

In 1978, a little-known country priest is inaugurated as Pope John Paul I in an uneasy compromise. With the promise of liberal reforms, the “Smiling Pope” warns three hostile cardinals that they will be removed. Thirty-three days after his election, he is found dead and no autopsy is performed. But that’s only the beginning of the story… Don’t miss The Last Confession at the Ahmanson Theatre.
