Señor Plummer’s Final Fiesta

Señor Plummers’ Final Fiesta is the best kind of living history, one that I hope finds a way to become an LA perennial.

In Another Room

To say that the Keeling Brothers and Natalie Jones topped themselves with the 2018 version of In Another Room isn’t entirely fair to the original. The structure of this version owes everything to what came before, and the stories and moments of the original still linger in my memory. But the team has crafted an even tighter story, with design elements that not only put other shows to shame but are all used masterfully to set tone and carry both emotion and narrative. Ahhhhhhh! I want to scream this is so good.

Delusion: The Blue Blade

Delusion has always been an ambitious endeavor, but this year’s edition is monumental in scope… The great thing about interactive theatre is that it lets you live iconic moments. The Blue Blade does that. Over and over.

Unreal City

Those who have never seen immersive theatre may be awed by the sheer scale, but they can just as easily be turned off by how little sense the story makes… There’s some good work in the piece, but it’s far too long, disjointed, and logistically hobbled to recommend.

When Skies Are Gray

A sequence late in the show might be better served at the top, and further development of this piece might benefit from exploring memory play tropes in order to forge a bridge to the audience.

God: The Apologies Tour

Egalitarian religious philosophy and pop humor mingle in the form of a collection of experiences with various aspects of the Supreme Being. It’s a concept that probably shouldn’t work, yet does.

What Went Wrong

It’s a tight little piece with solid live performances across the board. Delightful and surprising, this is one to make time for.

One Last Thing Before You Go

…what lies at the heart of it is a flawless execution of a singularly great idea. One so good, that I don’t want to spoil anything. Pray for an extension/remount, because it is already sold out.

Easy Targets: Artists and Heroes

I laughed so hard at one point, I worried that I was going to have a stroke. A collection of four deliberately terrible solo shows that are brilliantly executed to be so: all to encourage the audience to pelt the performers with rolled up socks. (Just 25 cents a sock! Refills available after each solo performance.) It’s a thing of comic beauty. Interactive theatre at its most raucous.

CAUGHT

I’d put good money on Caught being part of the canon for decades to come. Yet this particular production is the one that I wish generations could experience.

Fallen Stars at the Charity Sale

I know that it is Vanek’s life mission to get Nordic style larp up and running in Los Angeles. I think it’s a noble mission. Without some serious structural changes this theatrical adaptation isn’t going to be the magic trick that gets people excited about the prospect.
