Point Break Live!
Sundays. 
Los Angeles
The show features armed robbery, big-wave surfing, car chases, explosions, and no less than two extended skydiving sequences. Best of all, the starring role of Keanu will be selected at random from the audience each night, with the lucky winner reading their entire script off of cue-cards. This method manages to capture the rawness of a Keanu Reeves performance even from those who generally think themselves incapable of acting. More >>

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 >>

Transformed onstage into a travelling tent show, this is The Tempest unlike anything you—or the Bard—ever envisioned! As the wizard Prospero plots revenge on the enemies who banished him, the exuberant epic takes on a new life—thanks to the music (haunting ballads by the inimitable Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan), the magic (by Teller, of the legendary Penn and Teller duo) and the movement (by Pilobolus, the dance troupe Newsday called “mind-blowing…wildly creative…and physically daring”).

The successful opening night of this play in London in 1985 marked the climax of Wilde's career but also heralded his downfall. The Marquess of Queensberry, whose son Lord Alfred Douglas was Wilde's lover, planned to present the writer with a bouquet of rotten vegetables and disrupt the show. Wilde was tipped off and Queensberry was refused admission. Soon afterwards their feud came to a climax in court, where Wilde's homosexual double life was revealed to the Victorian public and he was eventually sentenced to imprisonment. His notoriety caused the play, despite its early success, to be closed after 86 performances. After his release, he published the play from exile in Paris, but he wrote no further comic or dramatic work. More >>

Based on a true story, this hilarious comedy by Peter Quilter invites us into the world of Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York socialite of great passion, considerable wealth and zero talent who fancied herself an opera diva.

But this delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics, comfortably surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was. More >>

Macbeth
Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Thu, Oct 9, 2014-Sun, Nov 2, 2014
Santa Monica
Macbeth was the first play Shakespeare wrote for a monarch other than Elizabeth I. Following Elizabeth's death, James VI of Scotland took the English throne, becoming James I of England. For Englishmen, there were many concerns with James assuming the throne; for example that he would be more tolerant towards Catholics because, although he himself was a Protestant, his mother was the devoutly Catholic Mary, Queen of Scots (who had been executed by Elizabeth), and because his wife, Anne of Denmark, was also rumored to be Catholic. This concern over religion caused much turmoil in England during James' reign. Shakespeare subtly incorporates this turmoil into Macbeth, while still praising the new King of England. More >>

What the Butler Saw
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Wed, Nov 12, 2014-Sun, Dec 21, 2014
Los Angeles
This classic comic masterpiece has all the ingredients of a thoroughly enjoyable romp: manic action, twisting plotlines, mistaken identities, slamming doors, disappearing clothes, and, above all, Joe Orton’s subversive wit, breakneck dialogue and outrageous lack of appropriateness. Decried as scandalous in 1969 for its character’s raging libidos and rampant mockery of morality, What the Butler Saw is a timeless tale of sex and repression in a culture gone mad (it takes place in a mental hospital, after all), never slowing down long enough to let you catch your breath from laughter.
