See Rock City and Other Destinations
See Rock City and Other Destinations comes to Santa Monica for a limited run Feb. 23 – March 24 at Santa Monica Little Theatre. The heartfelt musical roadtrip around the U.S. is made up of short vignettes that attempt to answer the questions of what we seek and what holds us back from realizing the things we want. Told through story songs, the production feels akin to a particularly good episode of This American Life on NPR and illuminates some of life’s tougher questions by refusing to answer them directly.
It features book by Adam Mathias and music by Brad Alexander. Alexander, who describes the core takeaway of the show as “moving past your expectations in order to connect,” has also been involved in the Los Angeles production as a resource for the cast and creative. Truly a show for anyone who ever wondered if they were on the right path, its universality is part of what makes it so genuine. Performances take place at Santa Monica Little Theatre, 12420 Santa Monica Blvd., CA 90024 (Between Carmelina and Centinela). For tickets and information visit www.colorandlighttheatre.org.
The Baby Project at The Road
The Road Theatre Company presents a workshop production of The Baby Project Feb. 22 – March 17 as part of their Access Road Series. The new musical features a book by Lori Jaroslow, music by Fonda Feingold and Noriko Olling, lyrics by Fonda Feingold and Lori Jaroslow, additional music by Noriko Olling and Lori Jaroslow with additional material by Michael Schiralli, choreography by Jodie Patterson and is directed by Shannon MacMillan. Performances will take place at the Road Theatre Company’s new second home, the Road Theatre at the NoHo Senior Arts Colony, 10747 Magnolia Blvd. in North Hollywood.
The musical comedy, which began as a solo piece by Jaroslow, portrays a single, bisexual, 40-something New Yorker who heads westward to Los Angeles to plant new roots and finally build a family of her own. While navigating the world of medically-assisted fertility she quickly learns that family can come to you in the most unconventional of ways. The cast features Jillian Easton, Ann Hu, Kasi Jones, Susan Boyd Joyce and Lani Shipman. For tickets, please call (866) 506-1248 or visit www.RoadTheatre.org.
