The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui  
Tickets: General $10, Students/Seniors $5, Nov. 21 - Dec. 14, 2014.

 

Presented by Play Production 3 and Stella Adler Academy & Theatre:

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui


Directed by Susan Vinciotti Bonito
Produced by Rochelle Rossman
Assistant Director Ciara Manquen


Described by Brecht as "a gangster play that would recall certain events familiar to us all," The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui is a witty and savage satire of the rise of Hitler - recast by Brecht into a small-time Chicago gangster's takeover of the city's greengrocery trade. Using a wide range of parody and pastiche - from Al Capone to Shakespeare's Richard III and Goethe's Faust - Brecht's compelling parable continues to have relevance wherever totalitarianism appears today. Written during the Second World War in 1941, the play was one of the Berliner Ensemble's most outstanding box-office successes in 1959, and has continued to attract a succession of major actors, including Leonard Rossiter, Christopher Plummer, Antony Sher and Al Pacino.

Stella Adler-Los Angeles & Play Production 3 presents:

The Isle of Slaves by Pierre De Marivaux


Directed by Yorgos Karamihos

Two masters and their servants are shipwrecked on an island. The mysterious "ruler" of this island forces them to swap names, clothes and roles, with the ultimate hope that this exercise will "cure" them from selfishness. Following the example of Aristophanes, the ancient Greek comic playwright, six true slavery stories work as a parabasis (infraction) in this hilarious comedy. By Pierre de Marivaux, one of the most important French playwrights of the 18th century, the Isle of Slaves makes us dream of a world where kindness, generosity, compassion and forgiveness count above anything else.

Cast: Carlene Chang, Nicholas Nargous, Ioanna Karalli, Devin McGregor Ketko, Jesse Pimentel,

Men Without Dates  
Tickets: General $10, Stella Adler Students $5. Sept. 19 - Oct. 5, 2014.

 


Stella Adler-Los Angeles presents:

Men Without Dates by Jane Willis


Directed by Eddy Salazar

Men Without Dates is a One Act play, starring Louie Iaccarino, Owen Conway, and Vincent Nesci. It's directed by Stella Adler Alumnus Eddy Salazar!

The place is a seedy country-western bar in lower Manhattan where two young firemen, Sal and Murph, are carousing. They are long-time friends who find themselves at a point of crisis: Murph is about to enter a shotgun marriage and resign from the Fire Department; and Sal, who once saved his buddy's life in the line of duty, is trying to do so again.

But Sal, an insatiable womanizer who is as baffled by his conquests as he is drawn to them, is the eternal adolescent and hardly the one to persuade Murph to forego his decision to "do the right thing" and settle down to a safer, if drabber, line of work.

Their debate is complicated by the intrusion of the bartender, an arrogant and paranoid bully who would just as soon fight with his customers as serve them and whose clash with Sal helps instigate the uneasy, but infinitely touching truce that brings the action to its poignant close.

Dates:
September 19 - October 5, 2014
Friday & Saturday at 8pm
Sunday at 7pm

Tickets: General admission $10, Stella Adler Students $5. Purchase tickets at: www.plays411.com/MenWoDates. For more information call 818-355-6003.

Stella Adler-Los Angeles Play Production 3 presents:

Slavs!: Thinking About the Longstanding Problems of Virtue and Happiness

A Play by Tony Kushner

Directed by Bonnie McNeil
Producer Rochelle Rossman
Assistant Director Maria Fernanda Bosque
Light Designer David Carreno

Moscow, March 1985. The last of the U.S.S.R. Another dark, funny, often vaudevillian fantasia from Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner, the celebrated author of Angels in America. Here the slapstick and the lunatic combine, in the words of critic Vincent Canby, to ask those age-old questions about good and evil, justice and its miscarriage and what is to be done about them.

"Why does Evil always triumph?" demands the gnarled Aleksii Antedilluvianovich Prelapsarianov to his Politburo comrades. The time is 1985, and these broken-down survivors of Russia's crumbling 70-year socialist experiment are about to witness the beginning of the end.

A Life of the Mind

Written by Sam Shepard

Directed by Bonnie McNeil

Winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award and the Drama Desk Award.

A landmark play which, in the words of the New York Times, "is the unmistakable expression of a major writer nearing the height of his powers." Filled with enormous vitality, and humor, the play explores the destinies of two families, linked by marriage but set apart by jealousies and distrust, to probe into the human heart and the destructiveness which it can engender.

"A LIE OF THE MIND is a mesmerizing, emotionally raw play that once again pulls the view into Shepard's distinctive world of disturbed reality and hungry hearts." Variety

"Sam Shepard's A LIE OF THE MIND, his newest and most mature work to date, is a brilliant theatrical rendering, a play of enormous emotional power and intellectual strength." The Hollywood Reporter

"Sam Shepard is surely the only dramatist alive who could tell a story as sad and frightening as this one and make such a funny play of it without ever skimping on its emotional depth." The New Yorker. "unforgettable." Time Magazine

The Human Spirit  

Tickets: General Admission $20. September 26 - 29, 2013.

 


The Human Spirit

Written by Carole Eglash-Kosoff

Directed by Donald Squires

Apartheid in South Africa has now been gone more than twenty years but the heroes of their struggle to achieve a 'Rainbow' coalition midst a Black majority-run democracy are still being revealed. Some individuals toiled publicly, but most worked tirelessly in the shadows to improve the welfare of the Black and Coloured populations that had been so neglected. Nelson Mandela was still in prison; clean water and sanitation barely existed; AIDS was beginning to orphan an entire generation.

Meanwhile a white, Jewish, middle class woman, joined with Tutu, Millie, Ivy, Zora and other concerned Black women, respectfully called Mamas, to help those most in need, often being beaten and arrested by white security police.

This play tells the story of these men and women who spent their adult lives making South Africa a better place for those who were the country's most disadvantaged.

Now, as Nelson Mandela's failing health grips the world, the travails and accomplishments of these people is, once again, relevant.

Jackleg

Written by Harriet A. Dickey

Directed by Nancy Cheryll Davis & Nancy Renée

In the wild comedy JACKLEG we discover that sometimes bad preachers happen to good people...

The congregation at Blessed Hope Missionary Baptist Church has hired a new pastor, but in this case the Devil is not just in the details, but in the preacher himself.

There's an "unholy war" going on at this church, and the backroom politics make congress look like a bunch of amateurs.

While the Board digs up dirt on their new pastor, the good reverend makes a little dirt of his own to hang on to his position.

Stella Adler Academy-Los Angeles presents:

The Cherry Orchard by Anton Checkov

Directed by Bruce Katzman


The action takes place at the country estate of Madame Ranevskaya, an estate famed for its beautiful cherry orchard and soon to be sold at auction unless the delinquent taxes are paid. As the play begins Madame Ranevskaya has returned from Paris, where she has frittered away the last of her fortune on a cynical young lover, and it is soon apparent that neither she, nor her family and friends, can come to grips with the crushing reality which they must face, or truly fathom the loss which threatens them. Instead they continue to go on as if nothing had changed, and only the rich merchant Lopakhin, the nouveau riche son of a peasant, seems to realize the gravity of the situation. Ironically it is he who bids successfully for the estate and who sets his men to felling the trees as, in the bittersweet finale, Madame Ranevskaya departs again for Paris and the fragile promise of a new and perhaps better life.

The Blank Theatre Presents

THE SANTALAND DIARIES by David Sedaris

Adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello
Directed by Michael Matthews
Starring Paolo Andino

"SANTALAND" is an outrageously funny one-man play (from NPR’s David Sedaris) about the author’s experiences as an unemployed writer taking a job as an elf at Macy’s. At first the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa's workshop, he becomes battle weary and bitter, occasionally taking out his frustrations on the children and parents alike.

For those who like a little spice with their Christmas sugar, this tale of mass marketing, stressed out sales clerks, drunk Santas, screaming kids and the general insanity of the holidays is hilarious, witty, sardonic and unpredictable; mercilessly cutting through the Christmas spirit to point out what crazy things we do as human beings during the holidays.

"spectacularly funny...it's way more fun than the nutcracker" -WeHo News

"If you’d like a bracing dash of bitters at this sticky-sweet time of year, you might want to belly up and drink in the fun....If you’re in the mood to get goofy and giggle, don’t deprive yourself of this holiday treat." - F. Kathleen Foley, LA Times

Dates:
November 16 - December 16, 2012

Anthony Skordi, award-winning playwright Willard Simms & Stella Adler-Los Angeles, present:

Onassis

Written by and Starring Anthony Skordi

Directed by
Bruce Katzman
Produced by Brett Baker

..." perhaps in my journey, I flew too close to the sun, like Icarus, and the heat has melted my wings..."

Anthony Skordi, award-winning playwright Willard Simms and Stella Adler-Los Angeles, present the world premiere of "Onassis." A one-man show set to illuminate the triumph and tragedy of Aristotle Onassis, one of the most interesting men the world has ever known.


As a child refugee in war-torn Asia Minor, to his rise as the "richest man in the world," director Bruce Katzman brings this historical larger-than-life persona to the American stage.

Skordi has exhaustively researched the life of Onassis and discovered a man who entertained business tycoons, royalty, presidents and their wives. He gives us a compelling glimpse into the opulent, star-studded world of a self-made man. A man who lived and died by his own set of rules.

With a relentless obsession for greed and power and his refined weakness for beautiful women, Onassis ultimately finds the lost meaning of his life...the pursuit of peace and happiness.

Timothy McNeil's coming-of-age drama recalls a time in middle class, middle America when husbands went off to work and wives took care of tidy little homes with well-manicured lawns and children.

“SANTALAND” is an outrageously funny one-man play (from NPR’s David Sedaris) about the author’s experiences as an unemployed writer taking a job as an elf at Macy’s. At first the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa's workshop, he becomes battle weary and bitter, occasionally taking out his frustrations on the children and parents alike.

For those who like a little spice with their Christmas sugar, this tale of mass marketing, stressed out sales clerks, drunk Santas, screaming kids and the general insanity of the holidays is hilarious, witty, sardonic and unpredictable; mercilessly cutting through the Christmas spirit to point out what crazy things we do as human beings during the holidays.

"If you’d like a bracing dash of bitters at this sticky-sweet time of year, you might want to belly up and drink in the fun....If you’re in the mood to get goofy and giggle, don’t deprive yourself of this holiday treat." - F. Kathleen Foley, LA Times

November 19 - December 18, 2011.

Jane Chambers', multi-award winning play, 'Last Summer At Bluefish Cove', is the story of a dissatisfied straight woman who leaves her husband to spend some quiet time by herself and who unwittingly and naively wanders into the midst of a group of seven lesbians at the beginning of their annual beachside vacation. She falls in love with the charming leading character who, unknown to her, is dying of cancer.

The friendships, the laughter, the love, the fears of being outed, the difficulties of being gay and how it affects relationships with family, children, parents and careers, the demonstrations of what the painful price could be for a lesbian lifestyle. Chambers' comedic dialogue, sensitivity to human nature and tender treatment of her characters help the play transcend preconceptions and show the universality of these women's journeys, whether straight or gay.

Last Summer At Bluefish Cove is a journey through friendship and love that will make you laugh, cry and reflect on what is truly important in your life.

The Cradle Will Rock  
General Admission: $30. Buy online at www.TheBlank.com or by phone 323-661-9827.

 

Corporations and churches use their influence to shape laws to their favor, unemployment hits new heights, and millions of Americans are losing their homes. Sound like the New Millennium? In 1937, Mark Blitzstein’s musical called these issues into question with his scathing satire of greed, corruption and politics in the U.S. of A. So scandalous, in fact, was “The Cradle” that the U.S. Government tried to shut it down. But Blitzstein’s humor, music and agitprop parody ruled the day and the public got to hear this terrific, fun, jazzy score. Snappy tunes, wonderful characters and deep questions about our nation will take you on a rollercoaster ride through the American patriotic psyche.

In celebration of their 20th Anniversary, The Blank will revive its production of “The Cradle”, which won the LA Weekly Award for “Musical of the Year”, 3 Drama-Logue Awards including “Production” and “Director”, and 2 Ovation Award nominations (“Best Musical”, “Best Director”) in 1995.

“Sophisticated, witty … Daniel Henning’s insightful staging and inspired performances showcase the enduring brilliance in the underappreciated watershed musical.” – Philip Brandes, LA Times

Rex Smith leads the cast featuring Tiffany Adams, Will Barker, Gigi Bermingham, Christopher Carroll, Rob Roy Cesar, Matthew Patrick Davis, Mike Hawley, Jim Holdridge, Jack Laufer, Roland Rusinek, Meagan Smith, Lowe Taylor, David Trice, Peter Van Norden, Matt Wolpe, Adam Wylie and Penelope Yates.

Biographies In A Bag  
conversations on craft
General Admission: $15.

 


'Biographies In A Bag' refers to a series of short one-person plays, written by Lynn Ferguson, that premiered to rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2004.

Though they may vary vastly in style, each individual play follows these three simple rules:
- It is 30 minutes long.
- The set is one single chair and props are merely what can be carried on at the beginning of the show in a single bag.
- The performer reveals something of their own life intertwined with the biography of someone who at first glance may appear to be completely unrelated.

Lynn Ferguson performs her 'Arthur Schopenhauer', weaving her story of new motherhood with the German philosopher of pessimism to form a touching, honest and comedic monologue.

Rachel Ogilvy performs her 'Doris Day', entwining her tale of an ill fated marriage with her admiration and respect for the actress who was known for her squeaky clean image.

January 17, 18, 19. Performance starts promptly at 8pm, doors at 7:30pm.

Tickets available at http://www.e-junkie.com/onehourtheater/product/447735.php.

THE SANTALAND DIARIES


By David Sedaris

Directed by Michael Matthews

THE SANTALAND DIARIES is an outrageously funny one-man play by NPR’s well-loved humorist David Sedaris, about Sedaris’ experiences as an unemployed writer taking a job as an elf at Macy’s. At first the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa's workshop, he becomes battle weary and bitter, occasionally taking out his frustrations on the children and parents alike.

For those who like a little spice with their Christmas sugar, this tale of mass marketing, stressed out sales clerks, drunk Santas, screaming kids and the general insanity of the holidays is hilarious, witty, sardonic and unpredictable; mercilessly cutting through the Christmas spirit to point out what crazy things we do as human beings during the holidays.

Heart & Sole

Starring Lynn Ferguson

Heart & Sole is the story of Carol, an elementary school teacher in Scotland, who falls in love with David, a fish living in a tank at the local aquarium. From this absurd idea, Ferguson has spun a warmly twisted drama asking the question “can you love someone and not be like them?” Her talent for embodying vibrant personalities allows her to switch between three characters effortlessly. Helping to illustrate Carol’s dilemma, we meet her friend Elaine, a brassy housewife, and Sacha, a possibly cultish fish fanatic.

Presented by Lange Productions
Written and Directed by Ted Lange

In 1846, some black folks came up with a plan to protest slavery…

Chaos, comedy, and collusion resound when a group of black men conspire to steal the Liberty Bell before it can be rung on George Washington’s birthday on February 22, 1846. This band of black folks meets in Philadelphia at the Golden Fleece Tavern to plot the confiscation of America’s icon of freedom. What makes them think they can do it? How in the world will they do it? Will the mystery of the Liberty Bell’s famous crack finally be solved? Let Freedom Ring is based on historical imagination and combines Lange’s signature comedy and drama as it reverberates issues of change and hope that still vibrate today.

Staged on a sharecropper's cabin during Depression-era Louisiana continuing through the War Years and into the 1960's, the tales are told and the original songs are sung by a cast of seven in period costume who play out the "Tale" with their dialogue from the There & Then... By the time the lightenin' strikes, one is hard-pressed to tell whether the tales were true, half-true, or just out'n out lies.

Standing ovations and rave reviews continue to propel this production to Sold-out performances RESERVATIONS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

REVIEWS:
"There's concept and then there's follow-through...and when it comes to musical-act-meets-theatrical-performance, you can't help but be impressed by the efforts of the Black Tongued Bells music. In their original stage production you'll hear what's been described as 'Electrified jug-band-blues sauce with a Waitsain twist', see if your life is changed in a backwoods way forever."- Los Angeles City Beat

"This is an exceptionally special entertainment event--there is nothing quite like it anywhere--a class act all the way...deserves the attention of audiences everywhere" -Jana Pendragon, KXLU 88.9FM

"A juke joint-style amalgam of song, story, hootin' and hollerin"
- Mindy Farabee, Los Angeles Times.

“If the Rolling Stones grew up in Louisiana, they’d probably sound just like us!”
Dee Miner

CONVERSATIONS ON CRAFT  
conversations on craft
May 4 , 7:30pm. Tickets: $20 online through Brown Paper Tickets or $25 at the door.
Proceeds benefit charity.

 
An exciting, new, seminar series is starting in Hollywood featuring some prominent figures in the entertainment industry with the proceeds from the ticket sales going to charity. “Conversations on Craft” will focus on well known actors, directors, writers and producers from all aspects of show business. During the course of these 90 minute interviews, participants will gain access to candid, behind-the scenes stories to some of the most influential figures in film, television and theatre. The next “conversation” will be held on Tuesday, May 4th at 7:30 pm at The Stella Adler Theatre in Los Angeles. The guests will be Edward Asner, Emmy award winning actor (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant, etc.; former president of Screen Actors Guild) and Mark Rydell (Oscar nominated director of On Golden Pond and The Rose; Artistic Director of The Actors Studio West).

“Conversations on Craft” is the brainchild of writer/director Luke Yankee, a prominent theatre director, playwright and author in Los Angeles. “I have been attending a lot of seminars at the Writer’s Guild Foundation recently and I was so inspired by them, I wanted to offer something similar that included other disciplines,” says Yankee. “The proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the charities of the speakers’ choice. Not only are they sharing their wisdom and experience, they are also helping a cause that they are passionate about.” A portion of the proceeds will also go to benefit The Stella Adler Los Angeles Academy of Acting and Theatre, one of the most renowned actor training programs in the country. John Jack Rodgers, Executive Director of the Adler, is co-producing the events with Mr. Yankee.

Tickets for “Conversations on Craft” are $20 online through Brown Paper Tickets or $25 at the door.

LET IT BE ART!
Harold Clurman's Life of Passion
   
April 16, 2:30pm. General Admission $5; Adler Students FREE

 
A solo performance play about Director / Drama Critic / Author of "The Fervent Years," Co-Founder of The Group Theatre, HAROLD CLURMAN.

Written and Performed by Ronald Rand
Directed by Gregory Abels

The moment Ronald Rand takes the stage as Harold Clurman in his solo performance, LET IT BE ART! Harold Clurman's Life of Passion, embodying Harold Clurman, through voice, gesture and size, we are immediately thrust into a world of boundless passion for the theatre, and taken on a inspiring journey that lingers within our consciousness for a very long time.

Mr. Rand as writer and performer captures the essence of who Harold Clurman was and what he stood for. His creation instills in the audience an unforgettable experience of passion, courage and inspiration.

We follow Harold Clurman from his beginnings on the Lower East Side, through his education at the Sorbonne in Paris with Aaron Copland as his roommate, his initiation into the theatre through The Provincetown Players and The Theatre Guild, his friendship with Lee Strasberg, and their decision with Cheryl Crawford, to found The Group Theatre, as well as his relationships with Stella Adler, Alfred Stieglitz, Marlon Brando and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, among several others.

LET IT BE ART! Harold Clurman's Life of Passion, starring Ronald Rand is a dramatic journey of humor, boldness and fervor, of the man heralded as "the elder statesman of the American Theatre." An experience you don't want to miss!

LET IT BE ART! Harold Clurman's Life of Passion IS A SPONSORED PROJECT OF THE NEW YORK FOUNDATION OF THE ARTS.

Why Torture Is Wrong  
adler fest
Ticket prices range from $22-$28, and may be purchased by calling 323-661-9827 or online at www.TheBlank.com

 

The Blank Theatre Company Presents Christopher Durang’s raucous and provocative satire about America’s growing homeland “insecurity.” A young woman is suddenly in crisis: is her new husband, whom she married when drunk, a terrorist? Or just crazy? Or both? Is her father’s hobby of butterfly collecting really a cover for his involvement in a shadow government? Why does her mother enjoy going to the theatre so much? Does she seek mental escape, or is she insane? Honing in on our private terrors both at home and abroad, Durang oddly relieves our fears in this black comedy for an era of yellow, orange and red alerts. Why Torture is Wrong had its world premiere at New York’s Public Theater in the spring of 2009.

Preview performances of Why Torture Is Wrong are Saturday, January 30 at 8pm, Sunday, January 31 at 2pm, and Tuesday, February 2 through Friday, February 5 at 8pm. Opening night is set for Saturday, February 6 at 8:00. The regular performance schedule is Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm through March 14. Ticket prices range from $22-$28, and may be purchased by calling 323-661-9827 or online at www.TheBlank.com.

MANish BOY, is comprised of characters that Ralph has developed on stages throughout the world. This hysterical one-man show celebrates moving memories, while taking you on a journey to the unknown. The story unfolds when he finds out that he may be a father, and he goes home to take a DNA test. During this performance, Ralph effortlessly brings neighborhood characters and childhood friends to life with a visit to his favorite place… his Mom’s basement. The basement is where he discovers that sometimes where you're from-- makes you who you are. It’s a must see!

Mark your calendars! On Aug. 7 we open Shakespeare's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, which I am directing and which has occupied most of my time this summer. It will be hilarious, sexy, romantic, suspenseful and full of surprises! Set against the backdrop of San Francisco's Summer of Love in 1967, the production features the music of The Moody Blues, The Doors, The Who, Janis Joplin, Procol Harum, Traffic and others of that period. We will play for TWO WEEKS ONLY in Hollywood at the Stella Adler, in The Gilbert Theatre, every night from the 7th thru the 16th (no show Monday the 10th). I have every confidence this will be a production to remember. And, like those who attended Woodstock 40 years ago this summer, you will be able to say proudly that, "I was there!" Hope to see you in August!! Bruce Katzman
