The Blind Date Project
Wednesdays. 
Los Angeles
The apprehension of going on a blind date is suddenly compounded when a group of people – you the audience – gather to witness an improvised meeting between two complete strangers in a karaoke bar. The premise is simple – or so it seems. A woman sits alone waiting for her date to arrive. That date is a different performer every night. The catch? The actress, AFI award winner Bojana Novakovic, has no idea who she is about to meet. Guided only by text messages and phone calls and interspersed with random songs, each performance promises to be as unpredictable as it is dangerous. The daringly devised encounters are devoid of scripts or rehearsals and no two shows are ever the same. Things may turn out to be humiliating, tender or totally hot. More >>

The Los Angeles premiere of the second play in Tarell Alvin McCraney's acclaimed “Brother/Sister Plays” trilogy stands alone – you don’t need any knowledge of the first (In the Red and Brown Water) or third (Marcus; or the Secret of Sweet) to enjoy The Brothers Size. Recently paroled Oshoosi Size seeks to jumpstart his life. Working in an auto repair shop for his brother Ogun, however, was not what he had in mind. When his old friend Elegba rolls up, offering a different direction, Oshoosi quickly finds himself torn between his brother, his loyalties and his dreams. It’s an exuberantly theatrical drama that weaves together the pulsing rhythms of the Louisiana bayou with African Yoruba mythology to create a stylized story of love and heartache. More >>
