“AN EXCEPTIONAL PRODUCTION OF A PERFECT MUSICAL.”

– The New York Times

“A MASTERWORK. IT THROBS WITH PASSION AND COMPASSION.”

– Chicago Tribune

William Finn and James Lapine’s groundbreaking, Tony Award®-winning musical Falsettos returned to Broadway in an all-new production directed by Lapine from Lincoln Center Theater and was nominated for five 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical.

Falsettos revolves around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, lover, about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. It’s a hilarious and achingly poignant look at the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family… and a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories.

“WHAT A JOYOUS RIDE! ALL THE PERFORMANCES ARE SPOT-ON…THERE IS SIMPLY NO END TO THE BEAUTY OF THIS SHOW.”

“THE TOUR OF THE REVIVAL OF WILLIAM FINN AND JAMES LAPINE’S BRILLIANTLY CONSTRUCTED FALSETTOS IS GLORIOUSLY PERFORMED.”

JIM HURST @ Boulevard Music
May 11 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
JIM HURST @ Boulevard Music

“Jim Hurst is one of the most versatile and tasteful guitar players I know. Whether he’s flailing the rhythm for an old time fiddle tune, laying down a funky groove, or finger picking a beautiful ballad, his playing is both impeccable and creative. Accompanying this instrumental virtuosity is a rich and expressive voice with a surprising range.” Mark Schatz

Jim Hurst’s unique picking style and mastery of bluegrass guitar wows audiences and is revered by both novice guitar players and his musical peers. His eclectic career has made him a remarkable performer, an experienced instructor and a highly sought after session musician. His affability and gregariousness make him one of the most approachable musicians of his caliber.

Garnering numerous nominations, Jim received IBMA’s prestigious “Guitar Player of the Year” awards for 2001 and 2002. This award is voted on by IBMA members including his peers and contemporaries revealing their appreciation of Jim’s abilities.

After recording and touring with several Country and Bluegrass artists, Jim decided in 2010 to embark on a solo career to focus mostly on his own musical expression and art. As a musician, vocalist, songwriter, arranger and producer, Jim has recorded 7 CDs including: Open Window, Second Son, A Box of Chocolates, Intrepid, Looking Glass, JHT-1, and Atlantic Crossing. Jim’s virtuosity shines as he consistently sways audiences with his deft finger work and smooth vocals.

Jim performs his show full time and teaches at guitar workshops and music camps in North America and Europe. While he occasionally collaborates with other bluegrass greats, his solo and Jim Hurst Trio performance are what keeps audiences mesmerized.

Critic’s Pick

“BEAUTIFUL…AN AFFECTING REVIVAL…DIANNE WIEST IS WONDERFUL!”

– Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

Academy Award® winner Dianne Wiest (Hannah and Her Sisters, Bullets Over Broadway) plays Winnie in Samuel Beckett’s masterpiece Happy Days. With her husband increasingly out of reach and the earth itself threatening to swallow her whole, Winnie’s buoyant optimism shields her from the harsh glare of the inevitable in this absurdly funny and boundlessly compassionate portrait of the human spirit. Wiest is both radiant and heartbreaking (The New York Times) in this extraordinary Yale Repertory Theatre production of Happy Days.

Critic’s Pick

“BEAUTIFUL…AN AFFECTING REVIVAL…DIANNE WIEST IS WONDERFUL!”

– Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

Academy Award® winner Dianne Wiest (Hannah and Her Sisters, Bullets Over Broadway) plays Winnie in Samuel Beckett’s masterpiece Happy Days. With her husband increasingly out of reach and the earth itself threatening to swallow her whole, Winnie’s buoyant optimism shields her from the harsh glare of the inevitable in this absurdly funny and boundlessly compassionate portrait of the human spirit. Wiest is both radiant and heartbreaking (The New York Times) in this extraordinary Yale Repertory Theatre production of Happy Days.

JIM KIMO WEST + MARK LEGGETT @ Boulevard Music
May 18 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Two fabulous fingerstyle players with an array of styles on the same bill. One a “Slack Key” guitar specialist and the other a fabulous fingerstyle/slide guitarist who melds the two seamlessly into fantastic arrangements.

Slack Key” means that some of the strings on a guitar are slacked from standard tuning, with the bass, melody, and improvisation played at the same time, and is often played to accompany traditional dance or song. Many players use their own special tunings that often remain proprietary secrets. Tonights show will feature this unique and beautiful style of playing.
Jim “Kimo” West first visited Hana, Maui in 1985, after a long summer on the road as guitarist for famed musical satirist, “Weird Al” Yankovic. As the sounds of Gabby Pahinui, the Sons of Hawai’i, Sonny Chillingworth, The Sunday Manoa, and others, played on the turntable, he jammed along for fun and relaxation. Already a devotee of open tunings, he was immediately drawn to the gentle rhythms of ki ho ‘alu (slack key guitar) and soon began writing his own songs. The rich physical and cultural landscape of the Hana Coast has provided the inspiration for many of his compositions.
While always retaining the heartfelt essence of traditional slack key, Jim “Kimo” West brings much of his own musical heritage to his original ki ho’alu instrumentals. His style can best be described as “nahenahe”, meaning “soft, sweet or gentle voice”, a fusion of old and new but still rooted deeply in tradition.
Jim lives in Los Angeles where he writes and produces music which has appeared in feature films and TV shows on all the major networks and cable channels.
Jim West’s latest recording “Moku Maluhia-Peaceful island” was nominated for a Grammy. “His Slack Key explorations in his unique and beautiful style, and in various tunings, including two of his own invention, further accentuating his own sound”
— George Winston. pianist/ guitarist

Plus on the same bill Mark Leggett, an artist who spends most of his time doing film scoring, making a rare appearance performing his original tunes and arrangements. Mark will be playing his fingestyle/slide arrangements of original and classic tunes. Twice Emmy nominated for his composing work, Mark has written music for Levon Helm and The Band, Dolly Parton’s films, the tv show My Name is Earl, and many others. We recently saw Mark perform at the Wiltern Theatre opening the show performing 3 songs solo for a screeening of Easy Rider done with a fabulous live band performing the original songs and incidental music accompanying the dialogue instead of the pre-recorded original songs and music. Mark’s arrangements of the three songs lead to the inevitable, this guy needs to be heard and discovered by more people. A fantastic tasteful player. Don’t miss him.

The Lincoln Center Theater Production FALSETTOS @ Kirk Douglas Theatre

“AN EXCEPTIONAL PRODUCTION OF A PERFECT MUSICAL.”

– The New York Times

“A MASTERWORK. IT THROBS WITH PASSION AND COMPASSION.”

– Chicago Tribune

William Finn and James Lapine’s groundbreaking, Tony Award®-winning musical Falsettos returned to Broadway in an all-new production directed by Lapine from Lincoln Center Theater and was nominated for five 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical.

Falsettos revolves around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin, his wife, lover, about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. It’s a hilarious and achingly poignant look at the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family… and a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories.

“WHAT A JOYOUS RIDE! ALL THE PERFORMANCES ARE SPOT-ON…THERE IS SIMPLY NO END TO THE BEAUTY OF THIS SHOW.”

– Dallas Voice

“THE TOUR OF THE REVIVAL OF WILLIAM FINN AND JAMES LAPINE’S BRILLIANTLY CONSTRUCTED FALSETTOS IS GLORIOUSLY PERFORMED.”

– TheaterJones

Description

Enjoy an intriguing arts experience and learn more about the dance art when you attend Benita Bike’s DanceArt performance May 19, 1:30pm, at the Culver City Senior Center, 4095 Overland Avenue, Culver City, 90232. Three concert dances will be performed with ample opportunities for asking questions and sharing opinions. This performance is made possible in part by the City of Culver City, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Performing Arts Grant Program, with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment. This performance is FREE and suitable for all ages.

Featured on this program is the new dance work “Plugged,” that explores our relationships to the machines that occupy our world and how these machines affect our sensitivity to nature, quiet, and the earth. Original sound score by composer Dean Wallraff. In addition, the DanceArt Company will perform “Schoenfield Dances” and “On Beat 3.” “Schoenfield Dances” features a rag, fughetta, shuffle, and boogie, and melds 20th century popular dance with a classical movement sensibility. “On Beat 3” is a trio that uses driving percussive rhythms and colorful off-balance movements to explore a world of ordered chaos.
