Atwater Village’s Weekend in Theater


8:00 pm EST-LA kicks off the adventurous season of new work with a world premiere by Oscar-nominated writer Nicholas Kazan, who reinvents Franz Wedekind’s Lulu with Mlle. God (January 29 – March 26). Scott Paulin directs Kazan’s outrageous tragic-farce, a paean to sex, art, and living in the millisecond. Not for the faint of trousers! Mature audiences only.

10:30pm Violators Will Be Violated A unique, unconventional, nearly wordless theater experience that has more destruction, mayhem, murder, ambition and special effects than an action film but it’s only one guy, with no props or set, relying solely on the physical story-telling of an elastic, adorable, frequently hostile performer. In short, anything you can’t imagine, you just might. Winner of the 2009 LA Weekly Award for Solo Performance and presented at the 2010 NY Fringe Festival and the 2010 Hollywood Fringe Festival. Voted one of the top 10 shows of 2009 by LA Weekly. Created and Performed by Casey Smith. Directed by Jennifer A. Skinner. February 18 – March 26. Fridays at 10:30 pm. Saturdays at 10:30 pm

10:30 pm: EST-LA Crack Whore Galore – LIVE! – ‘Spinal Tap’ meets ‘Ab Fab’ when Danny and Abbey Galore head out to Atwater Village Theatre for a late-night mix of live music and raw adult humor. After meeting in rehab, Danny and Abbey formed the rock band CRACK WHORE GALORE. They married, left the UK behind for Hollywood, swapped out their drugs for extra sex and louder rock-n-roll, and started living their own rock-n-roll dream. This world premiere production, created by Tonya Cornelisse, Ryan Oliver, Danny Roew, Graham Sibley and Gates McFadden, explores the ever popular cocktail of narcissism and desperation that runs rampant in today’s celebrity-driven culture.
