Stage West - First Date  
Stage West - First Date
Performance: Sep 12 2019 to Oct 13 2019
Preview: Thursday Sept 12 at 7:30 Friday Sept 13 at 8:00
Book by: Austin Winsberg, Music & Lyrics by Alan Zachary & Michael Weiner
When tightly-wound Aaron is set up with laid-back Casey on a blind date, a casual drink turns into an uproarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfolds, this mismatched pair's inner critics take on a life of their own, as other patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes, and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers, and potential conversational land mines. The result is a gleefully awkward evening as these two romantics try to turn a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives.

Still from the launch of the Ocean Wave  
The Modern - Disappearing - California

Exhibition on Display: May 10, 2019 - Aug 11, 2019
By: Bas Jan Ader, Chris Burden, Jack Goldstein
In 1971, Chris Burden disappeared for three days without a trace. That work, entitled Disappearing, gives its name to this exhibition, which examines the theme of disappearance in the works of Burden and his contemporaries in 1970s Southern California, Bas Jan Ader and Jack Goldstein. Loosely affiliated, these three artists shared a common interest in themes of disappearance and self-effacement, which manifested in works that were daring and often dangerous.

Arts Fifth Avenue  
Arts Fifth Avenue - The God Of Hell

The God of Hell was written in part as a response to the events of September 11, 2001, and has been described by Shepard as "a take-off on Republican fascism." Frank and Emma are a quiet, respectable couple who raise cows on their Wisconsin farm. Soon after they agree to put up Frank's old friend Haynes, who is on the lam from a secret government project involving plutonium, they're visited by Welch, an unctuous government bureaucrat from hell. His aggressive patriotism puts Frank, Emma, and Haynes on the defensive, transforming a heartland American household into a scene of torture and promoting a radioactive brand of conformity with a dangerously long half life.
