Take a trip to the '40s when Film Noir ruled the silver screen, and delight as the tales of a struggling Hollywood writer and the filming of his latest noir oeuvre unspool. Where his leading character keeps speaking back to him and the femme fatales won't stay on the screen!

On the day Eurydice is to marry her true love Orpheus, a misstep sends her to the surreal depths of the Underworld. There she has a surprising reunion and must decide whether to follow Orpheus back to the land of the living.

Pulitzer Prize finalist and Ovation Award winner Rajiv Joseph (Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) brings a violently beautiful, gruesomely funny comedy to the intimate Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater at the Geffen Playhouse.
http://www.theatermania.com/los-angeles-theater/shows/the-hot-l-baltimore_310319/The Hot L Baltimore
The scene is the lobby of a rundown hotel so seedy that it has lost the "e" from its marquee. As the action unfolds, the residents, ranging from young to old, from the defiant to the resigned, meet and talk and interact with each other during the course of one day. The drama is of passing events in their lives, of everyday encounters and of the human comedy, with conversations often overlapping into a contrapuntal musical flow. In the resulting mosaic each character emerges clearly and perceptively defined, and the sum total of what they are—or wish they were—becomes a poignant, powerful call to America to recover lost values and to restore itself in its own and the world's eyes.

Supremely clever playwright David Ives (All in the Timing, Time Flies) gives us this uproarious new "translaptation" of a classic French farce. In 18th-century Paris, young people like Damis have gone métromanie—crazy for poetry. Indeed, Damis has fallen in love with a mysterious poetess sight unseen, charmed by her verse alone. But unbeknownst to him, his beloved is actually a middle-aged gentleman named Francalou! This mistaken identity sets in motion a comedy of pseudonyms, plot twists, and plenty of playful poetry. The Washington Post called Ives's play "almost criminally enjoyable, a marvel of old and new, with punch lines that glisten with classical flair and contemporary savvy." Legendary American stage director Michael Kahn makes his Globe debut.

An hour before the opening of a new show, the actor playing the romantic lead calls to say he won't be there. Only three people know his lines: the stage manager terrified of public speaking, the playwright (a woman), and the director...whose sister is the other romantic lead. During intermission, the audience votes which one will take the role and in the second act of this "choose-your-own adventure" play, the show is performed with the winner as understudy.
