LUCAS HNATH IS ONE OF THE FRESHEST PLAYWRITING VOICES TO EMERGE IN THE PAST FIVE YEARS
-Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

Dana Higginbotham was a psych ward chaplain. Jim was a patient, an ex-convict who told her he was searching for redemption. From the Words and Writings of Dana H. recounts the harrowing true story of the five months Dana was held captive—trapped in a series of Florida motels, disoriented, terrified, and with her life in Jim’s hands. Told in Dana’s own words and reconstructed for the stage by her son, award-winning playwright Lucas Hnath (A Doll’s House, Part 2, The Christians), this innovative work of theatre shatters the boundaries of the form and of our understanding of good and evil.

“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.

“A CELEBRATION OF THE POWER OF THEATRE.”

– Time Out New York

From Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel, Indecent follows the incredible true journey of a groundbreaking piece of theatre, Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance, and the passionate artists who risked their lives to perform it. Winner of the 2017 Tony Award® for Best Director (Rebecca Taichman) and nominated for Best Play, Indecent is a celebration of art, a fierce indictment of censorship, and a gripping look at an explosive moment in theatrical history.

SLIGO RAGS @ Boulevard Music
Jun 8 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
SLIGO RAGS @ Boulevard Music

Named among the top acoustic bands in LA (by Folkworks Magazine) and two-time winners of the Orange County Music Award for Best Folk Band, the dynamic ensemble Sligo Rags presents Celtic Folk with a decidedly bluegrass attitude. Sligo Rags is taking the local and not-so-local Folk and Celtic music scenes by storm with a unique blend of eclectic musical influences. Dan Miller of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine says “These guys have it all–great vocals, lots of energy, captivating songs, well executed arrangements, and tasteful solos.” Their debut studio recording, “The Night Before the Morning After”, was called “the best I’ve heard from a stateside band” by Celtic Beat Magazine, while their sophomore effort, “The Whiskey Never Lies,” (called “the best from the West Coast Celts in many years” by Shay Clark of the Irish-American News), was named one of the top 10 of 2007 by Folkworks. Don’t be surprised if elements of country, gypsy jazz and swing manage to sneak their way into the act as well. Award-winning flatpicking and fingerstyle guitarist David Burns (recently featured in Flatpicking Guitar Magazine), fiddler extraordinaire Michael Kelly, and world-renowned bassist Eli Marcus are guaranteed to fill the room and your lives with electricity. They may give you a good laugh or two along the way as well.

“Sligo Rags have mastered the ability to take songs from a time gone by and make them fresh and relevant for a modern audience. Their passion for the music and their willingness to take risks combine for an outstanding live show.”–Music Connection
