The GROUP Rep presents
To cap off a really successful year, The Group Rep at the Lonny Chapman Theatre gives us the extremely funny and suspenseful SHERLOCK’S LAST CASE, written by Charles Marowitz and directed by Larry Eisenberg.
In the Pierce College production of Yasmina Reza’s “Art,” much of the time the stage is lit in a shade of ocean blue. Scenic Designer Michael Gent’s choice of color suggests that the play, though set in Paris, could just as well take place in Malibu or Santa Monica.
North Hollywood's own Zombie Joe's Underground Theatre Group has a wonderful family based drama called " SHE F*&%ING HATES ME: A Love Story" written and directed by Scarlett Ridgeway Savage. It’s the story of a mother and daughter of three generations dealing with a family death, a broken promise, a hidden secret and unspoken love of someone who is more than a friend. Cleverly staged by Scarlett and bold with words, this play will make you smile and laugh many times.

NoHo Arts Center
through January 5, 2013
Two-character plays for the most part take flight - no pun intended - if the plot and dialogue are terribly funny, as in Bernard Slade's Same Time, Next Year or if it's a musical, like I Do! I Do! The writing and players must have that extra special something to engage the audience consistently for two hours.
The Young Actors Ensemble at the NoHo Arts Center in North Hollywood has a frolicking production of a Steve “Wild and Crazy Guy” Martin’s play written originally in 1993 called “Picasso at the Lapin Agile.” Colorfully directed by Tommy Statler, the play is an amalgam of crazy, bizarre and witty humor that can only come from that legendary comedian's mind.
You can always expect a real tour de force of talent at Zombie Joe's Underground Theatre in North Hollywood and “Astroglyde XX” is no exception. The show is a series of original concepts written and performed by the actors who bring these 9 different personalities to life. With the show's fresh concepts and stories, your evening will be filled with humor, surprises, sexuality and touching (yet real) commentaries of the human condition. Each of these monologues had a different director guiding their individual talents.
The Antaeus Company presents
George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s timeless Comedy about love, life and living
Directed by Gigi Bermingham
Kip, the brilliant computer game designer in Michael Golamco’s “Build,” currently at the Geffen Playhouse, looks for much of the play like he’s caught in a fierce windstorm. His black and gray mane is stringy and unkempt, his burly bathrobe covers a well-worn t-shirt and sweats, and he cowers when he walks, as if fearful that the next gust may send him flying across the street. Yet this entire 90-minute, one-act play takes place inside Kip’s Palo Alto home. His appearance is a matter of personal choice.
SkyPilot Theatre in North Hollywood is where you MUST stop and see the legend himself - King Kong. You, the audience, help Kong climb, fight and even fall for his love! Jamie Robledo directed this production of “Kong-A Goddamn Thirty-Foot Gorilla.” It has originality, sparks of commentary and extreme visual creativity.
