Courtney Freed and Rebecca Johnson will star in The Coco & Ruby Variety Hour, a dazzling trip down memory lane and a peek into the hilarious and wacky lives of two ginger dames who mysteriously fell out of their humdrum lives in 1940’s Newark, New Jersey and into modern day Hollywood to live the dream! These two characters from the hit web series, “Coco & Ruby,” written by Rachel Roderman and directed by Steve Brian, will shuffle-ball-change right out of your computer screen on July 27-28 to bring you a LIVE show full of old-school comedy and musicianship reminiscent of Lucille Ball and Betty Hutton. The Coco & Ruby Variety Hour will include many of your favorite WWII era standards, as well as vintage takes on contemporary pop songs.

LOLPERA Gives One Final West Coast Performance
After selling out all of its performances in Long Beach and Los Angeles, LOLPERA, by Ellen Warkentine and Andrew Pedroza, is presenting one last show on July 26 at The Art Theatre as an epic fundraising event before going to New York City. the show premiered to sell-out crowds at The Garage Theatre in Long Beach, California in October of 2011, and to more sell-out crowds at The Hollywood Fringe Festival in June of 2012.
Set in dystopian Catcotopia, it is the story of our epik quest for meaning in our modern world…told entirely through stupid cat pictures. LOLPERA is an epik clash between low-brow humor and high art; a “gesamtkunstwerk” that asks the important questions about this our modern world: Can we find meaning in the meaningless? Will what we create ultimately destroy us? Can we really haz Cheezburger? The year is 2084. Our only means of communication: cat pictures. Welcome to our Brave Mew World. LOLPERA, 8pm at The Art Theatre, 2025 E. 4th Street, Long Beach, 90814. Click Here for tickets
