International Phenomenon STOMP at the Pantages

Buy Tickets $49 - $69 $65 - $85

Celebrating over 25 years in New York and on tour, STOMP never ceases to amaze. Everyday objects -- matchboxes, hubcaps, brooms, buckets, garbage cans and pretty much anything else you can think of -- become vehicles for brilliant music and unique rhythms, all performed by an energetic troupe that dances and pounds its way across the stage. The show also features comedic moments and lots of audience participation, placing you right in the action. The percussive sounds that will fill the Hollywood Pantages are unlike anything you've ever heard, and it's amazing to think that it's all coming from stuff you can find laying around the house. Grab these tickets but resist the urge to create your own at-home performance -- your neighbors will not be as impressed.

This proves, however, to be a most uneasy transition. The New York Times hailed Significant Other as "an absolutely wonderful new play ... as richly funny as it is ultimately heart-stirring." Laugh (and wince) along as he wades through a string of workplace crushes, painfully awkward first dates and other romantic misadventures on his search for true love in this bittersweet comedy from Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews).

California's dynamic population, culture and geography have made a notable impact on the state's artistic output, which has long been defined by a spirit of freedom and experimentation. This spirit is always on display at the Pasadena Museum of California Art, which showcases works by California artists in exhibitions like In the Land of Sunshine: Imagining the California Coast Culture, which features paintings of California life from the past 150 years, and "a sky in the palm of a hand", which pays tribute to local artists Lloyd Hamrol and Joan Perlman.

Laughter on the 23rd Floor: Neil Simon's Backstage Comedy

Buy Tickets $25 - $35 $57 - $65

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Neil Simon provides a peek behind the scenes of TV's Golden Age in this hit Broadway comedy, based on Simon's time as part of the writing team for Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows. Set in 1953, the play depicts the distressed writing staff of a weekly variety show as they frantically scramble to top each other with gags while vying for the attention of star madman Max Prince. Max's habit of boozing and popping too many pills is increasing under the pressures of rising McCarthyism, network executives and sponsors who want him to cut back his "too-smart" staff so they can chase after the Leave It to Beaver audience. A skillful mix of nostalgia, laughter and colorful characters, Laughter on the 23rd Floor remains an enduring classic from Simon, as evidenced in this new production from Garry Marshall Theatre.

Jack Fry's Einstein! returns to the Santa Monica Playhouse with a new set of accolades -- earlier this year, Einstein! traveled to New York City for the Stem Theater Festival, where it enjoyed a sold-out run and was the festival's highest-grossing show. In addition, it earned "Pick of the Fringe" status at the Hollywood fest. Of course, Einstein's name has become synonymous with "genius," but there's so much more to him than his world-changing theories. Set in 1914 Berlin, the solo play follows young Albert Einstein as he struggles to prove his General Theory of Relativity, while his personal life -- new fatherhood, a wife who won't agree to a divorce, failing health -- and society crumble around him due to the Great War. Told with humor and heart, Einstein! draws on the recent release of 15,000 documents and Fry's three years of research to show a side of the genius that's rarely seen.

Pulitzer-Winning Rock Musical Next to Normal

Buy Tickets $12.50 - $15 $25

In recognition of National Mental Health Awareness Month, Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center proudly presents the Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Next to Normal. One of Broadway's biggest and most compelling hits in recent years, Next to Normal offers a heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a modern family struggling with the effects of bipolar disorder. Featuring original songs by Tom Kitt (American Idiot), including "Just Another Day," "You Don't Know" and "Superboy and the Invisible Girl," this emotional powerhouse of a musical addresses grief, suburban life and even ethics in modern psychiatry. Find out why The New York Times called it "much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical."

The Night Forlorn (or, Waitin' on Godsford)

Buy Tickets $12.50 $25

Something Funny is Happening out on the Prairie. The Night Forlorn (or, Waitin' on Godsford) is a re-imagining of Beckett's Waiting for Godot, set in the West during the 1870s. At a campfire out on the prairie, two none-too-bright cowpokes wait for their leader Godsford and for instructions about "the plan." There's been a hanging in town, and they may or may not have been part of it -- in the flurry of what happened, things are somewhat unclear to them. All they are sure about is that Godsford has told them to meet them here by the tree. Into their midst come several tumbleweed characters, all of whom may change the course of their destiny in one way or another. A comedic journey which utilizes the roots of vaudeville as well as the absurdity of Beckett, the play is in many ways an homage to the elegiac westerns of Ford and Peckinpah. The show features Tom Allard, Jim Beaver, Leslie Caveny, J. Downing, Robert W. Laur and June Schreiner. Written by Steve Nevil and directed by Arden Teresa Lewis, see The Night Forlorn, produced by David Mingrino and Linda Rand, at Theatre West in Hollywood.

Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with the rigid lifestyle imposed by uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community, but in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase only to find themselves up against Deloris and the power of her newly-found sisterhood. Filled with uplifting gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act is a sparkling musical tribute to the universal power of friendship.

It's the 1930s and this version of Don Giovanni is working his seduction game, along with many other crimes, in the heart of gangland. His wicked ways catch up with him when his victims (including a vengeful ghost) band together to take him down. Featuring some of best young singers around in an intimate venue, this is one of the best ways to see an opera if you're new to the genre.

Four-time Grammy Award-winning ensemble Eighth Blackbird has been described by the Los Angeles Times as "a new breed of super-musicians" who have mastered a diverse and eclectic repertoire of new music, played primarily from memory, while simultaneously being enacted on stage. They'll be joined at The Ace in Los Angeles by singer-songwriter Will Oldham, whose music has been linked to Americana, folk, roots, country, punk and indie rock. Together they'll perform a set of original songs, along with Frederic Rzewski's iconic Coming Together, a touchstone piece of classical music's young, underground, independently-minded set. The text for this piece is taken directly from a letter written by Attica prison inmate Sam Melville in 1971, only months before the riots which he helped organize that led to his death, tracing a descent from self-control into madness.

Sweating Saris Exposes Dance as Labor

Buy Tickets $10 $20

This interactive multimedia duet between Ramya Harishankar and Dr. Priya Srinivasan explores the ways that performance as research can come alive. Based on Srinivasan's book, Sweating Saris: Indian Dance as Transnational Labor, which examines the history of Indian dance from 1880 to the present in the US in relation to restrictive anti-Asian immigration policies (1924-1965). The performance features her long relationship with Harishankar, her students and teaching processes while questioning dance not just as an aesthetic form but its relationship to socio-political, historical, cultural, racialized and gendered forms of power. While audiences of Bharata Natyam often see dance as a polished end product, Sweating Saris exposes dance as a form of labor. Using postmodern frameworks and structured improvisation (which is part of both Indian and contemporary dance), the work unpacks what is often unsaid "behind the scenes," including the ways in which the book was created. Enjoy the show at Santa Monica's Highways Performance Space and Gallery.

A string of stand-up stars -- Dane Cook, Whitney Cummings, Bobby Lee and Theo Von -- hits the stage at L.A.'s famed Comedy Store on Sunset. One of the most wildly popular comedians of all time, Dane Cook hit it big with his sometimes raunchy yet somehow universal brand of observational humor, selling out Madison Square Garden and going on to star in movies. Whitney Cummings (Whitney, 2 Broke Girls) is best known for her hilarious and razor-sharp insight on men, women, relationships and more. Bobby Lee first became a household name on MADtv, and with his riffs on everything from smoking weed to the Korean-American experience, and countless TV and movie appearances, he's emerged as an in-demand comedy star. Rounding out the headliners is Theo Von, who first became famous as a contestant on MTV's Road Rules and went on to become a finalist as a stand-up on NBC's Last Comic Standing. Brian Monarch plus a few special guests will round out this hilarious night of stand-up.

Want to get away but lack the time or money? This daylong tour "takes you away" to all the best that Los Angeles has to offer. Explore on foot and by public transit as you get a feel for what it really means to live in Los Angeles. Sure, you'll see all the tourist musts like the Hollywood sign, Rodeo Drive and Venice Beach, but you'll also visit a hidden garden oasis on Hollywood Boulevard, learn about film and television history at a local media museum, and take a bike ride along the Pacific Ocean's famous beach path. Locals know that the best lunch to be had isn't in a fancy restaurant, but at the Farmers Market, which is a historic landmark that's been running continuously since 1934. You'll grab lunch from one (or more) of the plethora of food vendors before heading to a bakery and then on to a stroll along the glamorous Rodeo Drive. By the end of this 8-hour guided adventure, you'll come away feeling like you've gotten away -- and having a new appreciation for this wonderful city.
