Major Barbara January 2, 2013 | 7:00 pm

George Bernard Shaw said in 1933, "You must always let yourself think about everything. And you must think about everything as it is, not as it is talked about... We should never accept anything reverently without asking it a great many very searching questions.” Shaw asks “a great many searching questions” about power, wisdom, salvation, and survival in Major Barbara, in which the ideals of conventional morality are brought to bear on the ambiguities of the real world.

The Seagull December 12, 2012 | 7:00 pm

Actors, and the stages they play upon, have long been a ripe subject for the theatre. From the madcap antics of Noises Off, to the “rude mechanicals” of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a number of plays have explored human folly and frailty through the lens of acting itself. But few plays have captured the nuances of identity, ego, aspiration, and idealism that go on “behind the scenes” like Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull: This week on L.A. Theatre Works.

Starring Calista Flockhart and T.R. Knight.

Tooth and Claw December 5, 2012 | 7:00 pm

The Galapagos Islands of Ecuador have long been considered a crown jewel of pristine nature. First made famous by Charles Darwin, who developed his theory of evolution while visiting the islands, the Galapagos have since struggled with their celebrity, trying to balance the desire for conservation with the demands of tourism and the needs of the local population. Playwright Michael Hollinger spun these overlapping tensions into a rich and compelling story, Tooth and Claw, loosely based on true events which occurred there in the 1990s.

The lead character in our story this week would probably despise Facebook, and he’d never be found on Twitter. In fact, if there were an anti-social network, he’d most likely be a charter member. His name is Alceste, and he’s the unlikely hero of the French playwright Moliere’s celebrated comedy, The Misanthrope. The play is arguably Moliere’s most insightful work, one which illustrates his profound disdain for the mores of 17th-century French society.

“Truth,” said Oscar Wilde, “is independent of facts always, inventing or selecting them at pleasure.” Wilde’s topsy-turvy farce is rife with mistaken identities, misguided lovers and a misplaced handbag. But it also takes a serious swipe at hypocrisy and the constraints of morality – subjects that never go out of style.

The Importance of Being Earnest stars James Marsters as Jack Worthing, Matthew Wolf as Algernon Moncrieff, and Charles Busch as Lady Bracknell. With Emily Bergl, Jill Gascoine, Sarah Zimmerman, Neil Dickson, and Christopher Neame.
