Owned by the City of Los Angeles since January, 1996, today’s Warner Grand Theater is the last remaining functioning ‘nabe’ south of downtown L.A. and north of San Diego County. It still screens the classics on its 50 ft. screen and hosts concerts on its vaudeville size stage. Since the city’s acquisition, the theatre has undergone a slow upgrading, including the installation of new dressing rooms, new concession stands, a box office area, redone projection and an upgraded stage system.

Harmony: A New Musical

February 17, 2014 — 2 Comments

Harmony is inspired by the true story of The Comedian Harmonists, six young men in 1920s and 1930s Germany who rose from unemployed street musicians to become world-famous entertainers, selling millions of records, starring in over a dozen films, and selling out the most prestigious concert halls around the world. Yet while The Comedian Harmonists’ sophisticated music, paired with hilarious comedy, made them the brightest of stars, the group’s mixture of Jews and non-Jews put them on a collision course with history.

Their amazing story inspired longtime collaborators, the legendary Barry Manilow and theatre veteran Bruce Sussman, to create a spectacular new musical with an original score that celebrates this extraordinary group of friends and ensures their quest for true harmony in the most discordant chapter of human history will never be forgotten. “We are both thrilled to finally return to our first love–writing a musical together. Especially this one,” Manilow and Sussman shared. “It has been an indescribable honor to spend all this time in the company of these six extraordinary men.”

Regret and sibling rivalry fan the flames of laughter in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, a wickedly wonderful Chekhovian mash-up that equally tickles both the casual theatregoer and the ardent student of the Russian classics. Melancholy turns into mayhem when Vanya and his sister Sonia—along with their clairvoyant housekeeper Cassandra—are paid a surprise visit by Hollywood star sibling Masha and her twenty something boy toy Spike in a play by Christopher Durang.

The Sunshine Boys

September 11, 2013 — Leave a comment

The laughter hits the ceiling when Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Danny DeVito joins Tony Award and Emmy Award winner Judd Hirsch to tear it up in this outrageous new production of the Neil Simon’s classic The Sunshine Boys.

Sun_488x240

In The Sunshine Boys, Willie Clark (DeVito) and Al Lewis (Hirsch) are former vaudevillian stars who, after a partnership of over 40 years, are no longer speaking to each other.  When a lucrative television offer for one last show lures them into a grudging reunion, sparks fly in this classic comedy of showbiz and friendship. DeVito and Hirsch are reuniting on the Ahmanson stage 30 years after they both starred in the landmark television series “Taxi.”

devitojhsunshine

The Sunshine Boys “… celebrates the clown’s classic gift for turning anger into art,” said Ben Brantley of The New York Times. “Willie Clark … has a carved-in-stone list of things that are funny. Words that have “k” sounds, for instance, like pickle and cake and cucumber. Might I add to that list the image of a tufted Danny DeVito in striped pajamas and a sports jacket? … That’s comedy, folks. And it’s one of the reasons that Thea Sharrock’s production of ‘The Sunshine Boys’ works so incredibly well.”

The Sunshine Boys by Simon,

The Sunshine Boys is playing at the Ahmanson Theatre that for over 40 years has presented a wide variety of dramas, musicals, comedies, and classic revivals.
