It’s a little long – they’ll figure that out as well – but clearly what the The Antaeus Company has already figured out – and what we’ve been pushing here for years at the Lemon – is that the teaser trailer for theater needs to ENTERTAIN. It needs to entertain to such a degree that [...]
The trailer for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, getting some nice reviews down at San Diego’s Old Globe. Funny little teaser.
Track 3 by Theatre Movement Bazaar over at the Bootleg Theatre. Cool video teaser.
An odd little ditty from Padua Playwrights for their new show The Black Glass.
Saw this last night, Cheek by Jowl’s production of ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore, in association with CAP UCLA. Have to admit I was not familiar with the company or the play. Tarantino’s got nothing on Ford and the Jowlies. Yikes. Catch it if you can, only playing through this weekend. Still not sure why [...]
A nicely put together “thank you” from the Antaeus Company.
DOMA Theatre Company presents Avenue Q. The show has been getting raves and I’m catching it tomorrow night. Looking forward to it. I like this little video teaser they put together. It has extended into February, catch it if you can.
A Bright New Boise now playing at Rogue Machine. Kinda corny but I think that’s the idea…
Not my favorite approach to these teaser trailers – actual clips recorded from a live performance – but it looks pretty good and I believe this is the final weekend for the show. Bend in the Road currently playing at the Carrie Hamilton at the Pasadena Playhouse extended through October 14th.
Skypilot Theatre Company’s teaser trailer for Kong: A Goddamn Thirty Foot Gorilla. Kinda silly, but hey, maybe the show is kinda silly.
Coeurage Theatre Company presents The 4th Graders Present an Unnamed Love Suicide opening tonight, September 28th at their home at the Actors Circle Theatre.
Son of Semele’s The City. Playing through September 23rd, 2012. Trailer for “The City” by Martin Crimp, a U.S. premiere production by Son of Semele Ensemble from Matthew McCray on Vimeo.
This man is simply a Rock and Roll God. To have the confidence and joy to allow this little girl to shine live is extraordinary. To say nothing of the little girl…
Amazingly creative video made via the combined talents of the Pig Pen Theatre Company with animation by Buffalo Picture House. The song is called Bremen and so is the band. Nice. Hat tip, my buddy Matt Bretz.
This is the teaser trailer for the final two shows of the original (and best, in my opinion) Four Clowns show. It plays tonight (which is the reason for the early Friday Feature posting) Aug 9th and next Thursday, Aug 16th at the Actors Circle Theatre. Catch it if you haven’t already as I don’t [...]
Yep. War Horse. Ahmanson. Nice to have a budget, eh? Nevertheless, nicely put together.
This from Skypilot Theatre’s new musical Earthbound: An Electronica Musical. Pretty cool, though the tune doesn’t exactly make we want to get up and dance…
DOMA Theatre Company’s teaser trailer for their latest production of Jekyll and Hyde. Minimalist, to say the least…
Kind of a funny and interesting approach to the teaser trailer from Rogue Machine on their new production The New Electric Ballroom.
If you haven’t seen Re-Animator: The Musical yet, go. It’s currently running at the Hayworth and set to close on June 3. It’s about as much fun as you can have in the theater with your clothes on and covered in garbage bags.
Quick, quirky, but kind of effective. The trailer for New American Theatre’s Bedfellows playing at the McCadden Place Theatre through June 2, 2012.
At a Lincoln, Nebraska City Council meeting, this happened. I was going to post something else for the Friday Feature today but it’s just so hard to pass up comic genius in all its natural glory. Check out the guy in the background about to explode. Yes, people like this woman, Jane Skrovota, still exist. [...]
Romeo & Juliet set to open at Coeurage Theatre. Check it.
Circle X’s Naked Before God at [Inside] the Ford. An interesting combo of scenes from the play interspliced with interviews from the creative team.
Saw this. Pretty cool to see these guys do this play. Catch it if you can. Waiting for Godot at the Taper through April 22.
American Idiot has arrived in LA.
It’s almost baaaack! Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre is reopening its horror masterpiece Urban Death , March 31st, Saturdays only at 11pm. Do. Not. Miss. It.
Very cool trailer for The Treatment, now playing at the the Theatre @ Boston Court. A little long for my tastes, but clearly they’ve matched the essence of the show nicely with music and cinema. Gonna have to catch this bad boy.
Three Year Swim Club, playing at the David Henry Hwang Theatre.
Edwardian Ball, 2011, supposedly a nice primer for the event that’s happening this Sunday night.
