After his beloved dog dies, CB searches for an answer to the question of what happens after people – or pets – die. When his friends provide minimal support for his questions, he turns to Beethoven, a reclusive teenager who has been shunned by his peers and whose only solace is his music. The two teenagers strike up a relationship which spirals into something far more intense than either expect, and the events that follow push everyone to their limits.

At the Silverstein wedding, crazy is relative. Jane's groom has gone missing. Her sister Emily's "life partner" may be just a one-night stand.

Powerful and poignant, heartfelt and humorous, and to celebrate Kwaanza, Santa Monica Playhouse is proud to present a special one-night-only engagement of film, television and stage personality Stogie Kenyatta's acclaimed show about African-American artist-activist Paul Robeson. Robeson – internationally renowned actor, recording artist, concert singer, football player, All-American athlete and Phi Beta Kappa Society laureate at Rugters University, was witness to the artistic wonders of the Harlem Renaissance and the Jazz/Be-bop era, the horrors of the slave trade, the shame of the Holocaust, McCarthyism, blacklists, racism and oppression. His life's work celebrates our common humanity as he fought globally for social justice. "Armed with nothing more than the strength of his convictions and his vision of a world where men live as brothers, his message was his life," says Kenyatta. "He shows us that in spite of our differences, we still have more in common than we do in conflict."
