SIX CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF AN AUTHOR, by casino online Luigi Pirandello

World Premiere Adaptation by Steve Moulds/directed by Halena Kays

Performed by The Hypocrites at the Chopin Theater

The Hypocrites, a Chicago theatrical group known for being “challenging and inspirational,” “scrappy, friendly, informal, rough around the edges, and most of all honest,” “crazy, unique, collaborative, fun and INTERESTING,” continue to wow audiences with their innovative dramatic interpretations of a range of plays.

Six Characters in Search of an Author, a satirical tragicomedy written by Sicilan-born Luigi Pirandello, was first performed in 1921 at the Teatro Valle in Rome to mixed reviews, with shouts from the audience of “Manicomio” (“Madhouse!”) through the reception.  Popular opinion evolved, however, and the play was successfully mounted the following year at the Princess Theater on Broadway in New York, and has since become recognized as a 20th century pre-absurdist classic.

AT THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART: 

IN WONDERLAND, THE SURREALIST ADVENTURES OF WOMEN ARTISTS IN MEXICO AND THE UNITED STATES

1/29-5/6, 2012

Calling all Surrealist fans!

North America represented a place free from European traditions for women Surrealists from the United States and Mexico, as well as European émigrées. While their male counterparts usually cast women as objects for their delectation, female Surrealists delved into their own subconscious and dreams, creating extraordinary visual images. Their art was primarily about identity: portraits, double portraits, self-referential images, and masquerades that demonstrate their trials and pleasures. Iconic figures such as Louis Bourgeois, Leonora Carrington, Frida Kahlo, Lee Miller, Kay Sage, Dorothea Tanning and Remedios Varo are represented along with lesser known or newly discovered artists.

And you can see it for free on Monday, February 20, 2012, thanks to Target’s Family Free Holiday!

Resnick Pavilion, Los Angeles County Museum of Art 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, LA 90036
