It's a hit! "Cabaret," the 1966 Broadway musical sensation and film adaptation that has won Tony's and Oscars respectively is here in North Hollywood. Presented by The Crown City Theatre, Cabaret is a MUST SEE! Come on, it's Cabaret, what else can I say.

Written by James Goldman
Directed By Stephanie Vlahos
The Lion in Winter by James Goldman is the perfect play to experience if you enjoy Period Plays and Shakespearean Dramas yet find it challenging following the old Shakespearean language. Written in modern English, The Lion in Winter which premiered on Broadway in 1966 is a play depicting the personal and political conflicts of Henry II of England, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine, their children and their guests during Christmas 1183. It has all the flavoring and trappings of a medieval setting, royal family rivalry and a touch of comedy, magnificently performed by the cast.
The Falcon Theatre and one of the most creative comedy troupes you’ll ever see, the Troubadour Theatre Company, present a wildly modern/classic/musical treat they call “Walkin’ in a Winter One-Hit-Wonderland.” With some of the cleverest one-liners and bits of comedy mixed in with music and dance, you’ll have so much fun that you might actually get asked to be in the show! (Wink, wink – spoilers ahead!)
