It's the 20th anniversary production of the celebrated Rudie-DeCarlo musical, an excitingly heart-warming adaptation of the original French tale. This first Holiday show of the season, with a grand festive opening on Halloween Eve, introduces audiences to a lively, lovely and spirited Beauty and a most endearing Beast, offering a rose garden of a thousand and one delights, replete with dizzily ditzy sisters, a sweetly sensitive sire, a spell-binding sorceress and a flamboyantly foppish suitor, who all inadvertently or intentionally strew more than a few thorns along Beauty and her Beast's path. But true loves wins out, allowing them to find a happily-ever-after that leaves all who are young at heart breathless. "A delightful musical with a timeless message" (The Argonaut). Festive Birthday and Tea Parties for adults and young people are offered with every performance.
Following the internationally acclaimed sold-out engagements on Broadway and London's West End, theatre legend, Oscar-recipient and five-time Tony Award® winner Angela Lansbury returns to the stage this winter in her Tony Award® winning role as Madame Arcati, in Michael Blakemore's revival of Noël Coward's smash-hit comedy play, Blithe Spirit.
Researching for his new novel, Charles Condomine invites the implausible medium Madame Arcati to his house for a séance. While consumed in a trance, Madame Arcati unwittingly summons the ghost of Charles' dead wife Elvira. Appearing only to Charles, Elvira soon makes a play to reclaim her husband, much to the chagrin of Charles' new wife Ruth. Now if he wants his latest marriage to stand a GHOST of a chance, he'd better conjure up a solution quickly. One husband, two feuding wives and a whisper of mischief in the air – who will win in Coward's unworldly comedy?
Don't miss what the Daily Telegraph hails as "a comedy that startles and delights! This is a tour de force that will glow in the memory of all who see it!" Wit... Style... Laughter... Why, it's the most spirited comedy you've seen in years.
Bob's Holiday Office Party - L.A.'s most "hilariously deranged" (Los Angeles Times) seasonal tradition is back for its 19th year! Every year, insurance agent Bob Finhead's whacked out friends and clients stop by his small-town Iowa office for their annual holiday bash. The town mayor, the sheriff, the twin farmers, the stoner, the town floozy and the pastor's wife have already RSVPed for this year's event. But Bob has dreams of a bigger life and wants to escape their narrow-minded thinking. Will he be able to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional inventor and move to the big city, or will he come to realize how much he is the heart and soul of the town? Will any of this matter once the party stars, the bickering and fighting begins, and the drinks hit the floor?
In a side-splitting, historic finale, Barry Humphries, with his beloved creation – Dame Edna Everage, is capping a spectacular career spanning 50 years of bravura showmanship in this farewell to celebratory, sold-out performances across world. With her take-no-prisoners comedy and hijinks, Dame Edna is not going out with a whimper: No one is safe from the Dame's wicked tongue.

Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater
Written by Scott Carter
Directed by Matt August
Featuring Larry Cedar, David Melville and Armin Shimerman
"This provocative and funny world premiere play is a fascinating insight into the spiritual lives of three of the greatest minds that ever lived." - Theatermania
A Founding Father, a Victorian novelist and a Russian revolutionary walk into a … stop me if you've heard this one. Thomas Jefferson (yes that one), Charles Dickens (the very same) and Count Leo Tolstoy (who else?) are brought together in a blistering battle of wits for the ages. From Scott Carter (Executive Producer of Real Time with Bill Maher), this whip-smart comedy examines what happens when great men of history are forced to repeat it.
Holiday Fever draws its inspiration from The Carol Burnett Show and Donny and Marie, with a generous helping of sequin-fueled Solid Gold thrown in to account for its outrageous spirit and never-ending stream of dazzling wigs. The show has all that you would expect from the genre: singing, dancing, sketches, variety acts... What sets it apart is an intangible comedic sensibility that infuses every number -- a touch of irony and irreverence that has infected the show's fan-base and critics alike with a condition known as 'The Fever!'
It's not your Norman Rockwell version of the season... but it's a whole lot more fun.

Girardoux's love note to the vanishing Paris of la Belle Epoque. A prospector, a baron and a corporate boss find oil beneath the Tour Eiffel and the cafes of Chaillot. How could three eccentric countesses, a ragman and a sewerman possibly make the world safe for lovers?
Hannah and Miley are sisters. Of course there's sibling rivalry. Can they twerk it out?
Finally. A Clinton in the White House. It's Jan 2017, President Hillary's first day in the Oval Office, and she's taking on China, Climate Change, Bill & Chelsea, and the ghost of Eleanor Roosevelt!
Fun (and appropriate) for all ages, this show, directed by Frank Caeti, features improv games that rely on audience suggestions and participation. Great for the whole family! We are the Bugs Bunny of improv; come be a part of the show!
The Second City House Ensembles are the newest crop of talent coming out of Second City that have been hand picked to crank out the improv funny.
An updated version of the classic Grimm fairytale, in the style of a traditional British family Panto, Sleeping Beauty and Her Winter Knight is a singing and soaring winter adventure that features family-friendly magic, with a comedic twist, dancing (with So You Think You Can Dance alumni), a live pony, interaction with the audience and contemporary music from Jessie J's "Domino" to John Legend's "All Of Me," Pharrell Williams "Happy" to Survivor's "Eye of The Tiger" and more.

A twister hits the classic tale for a fast-paced, ridiculous retelling by only six actors and tons of audience participation!
A Rock Musical comedy. 5 performers play 12 bands and a slew of comic characters in a mock history of Independent Rock!
Don't you love farce? It's your typical boy-meets-girl story. Only the boy is a wily psychoanalyst married to a nymphomaniac. And the girl is his secretary…once she passes a not-so-routine physical. Mix in a little blackmail, a lot of sexual innuendo, a government inspector, a lusty bellboy and voilà!
This classic comic masterpiece has all the ingredients of a thoroughly enjoyable romp: manic action, twisting plotlines, mistaken identities, slamming doors, disappearing clothes, and, above all, Orton's subversive wit, breakneck dialogue and outrageous lack of appropriateness.
The musical story of cannabis in America... that gets in a few pot shots along the way.
