By Luigi Pirandello
John DeMita, director

“Each of us, face to face with other men, is clothed with some sort of dignity, but we know only too well all the unspeakable things that go on in the heart.”

As startling today as it was when first performed, Luigi Pirandello’s unique tale begins as realism, but quickly becomes an assault on the very nature of theatre itself. Claiming to be the incomplete creations of an author who abandoned their story, six mysterious characters interrupt a rehearsal in progress, declaring they are more “real” than the actors who eventually want to portray them. What follows is a series of revelations so shocking that the play caused a riot in the audience of its premier production on May 10, 1921.

By Luís Alfaro
Carolyn Almos, director

What goes around comes around. But does it have to? Inspired by the true story of an incarcerated teen who tried to kill her mother, LA playwright Luís Alfaro has updated the ancient Greek revenge tragedy of Electra to contemporary East LA. In Alfaro’s adaptation, Electricidad, a young woman raised in a world of gang violence, has seen her father murdered – by her mother. Now she guards his body in the front yard of their Boyle Heights home, and plots her revenge. Will she follow through with her homicidal plans, or will she somehow find a way to break the cycle of violence? A sometimes comic, uniquely Chicano take on a timeless tragedy.
Play contains adult language.

Wilkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome! So—life is disappointing? Forget it! We have no troubles here. Here, life is beautiful... Come to the CABARET! The decadent world of 1930’s Berlin comes to life in this Tony Awardwinning musical masterpiece. An English nightclub singer, an American writer, a German landlady and a Jewish shopkeeper find their destinies linked and their futures uncertain as the Nazis struggle to overthrow Germany. By turns defiant and melancholy, brazen and gleeful, CABARET sizzles with thrilling songs that will make your heart pound. Join the seductive Master of Ceremonies as he bids you to “leave your troubles outside” and experience the scintillating entertainment of the steamy, seamy Kit Kat Klub. Great songs, killer dancing... still the sexiest musical of the American theatre!
Campus Theatre  $25 (Children* 12 and under - $18)

Maddaford.  We would like to acknowledge and thank the generous donors who attended previous musicals and contributed to the Musical Theatre Fund.

*CABARET explores many adult themes related to sex and Nazi-era politics, and may not be suitable for all audiences, particularly young children.

As a courtesy to the performers and our audiences, children under 5 years of age will not be admitted to theatre series performances.  Children 5 and older, however, must have a ticket and be able to sit quietly throughout the performance.  Thank you for your support and understanding.
