A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. Dear Evan Hansen is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it.
The ingenious and charming British-German art collective Gob Squad shrewdly mixes performance and impromptu video to elevate the banality of everyday life into soaring artistic experiences. Every night is different when they draw inspiration from six local citizens who perform with them in a uniquely Los Angeles version of their latest acclaimed production.
Gob Squad members have spent the last 25 years onstage, growing old together. Now well and truly middle-aged, they are inviting a diverse group of local performers, a generation younger and older than themselves, to answer the questions of beauty, morality, and power raised by Oscar Wilde's never-aging character Dorian Gray, and to playfully ask why they all so crave the eye of the beholder. The group that wowed REDCAT audiences with previous works Western Society, Super Night Shot and Kitchen, uses wit and wry humor as they “explore the point where theater meets art, media and real life."

When the Yamaguchis are interned along with thousands of other Japanese Americans, allegiances are tested, heroes are made, and the two young lovers must find a way to stay loyal to each other—and their country.
Presented in Association with El Teatro Campesino
Hailed by The New Yorker as the “dynamic doyenne of the toy piano and its grownup counterpart,” Margaret Leng Tan infuses the avant-garde with good old-fashioned showmanship, tempered with the disciplinary rigor inherited from her mentor John Cage. The first woman to earn a doctorate from Juilliard, Tan is also the world’s first professional toy piano virtuoso. Her curiosity has extended to other toy instruments as well, substantiating her credo: “Poor tools require better skills” (Marcel Duchamp). Margaret Leng Tan makes her Los Angeles debut performing the west coast premieres of two works written for her: Metamorphoses Book I, George Crumb’s first major piano cycle in 40 years, and Phyllis Chen’s Curios, a multimedia work revolving around the bizarre and bewitching world of the circus carnival.
