BRAVO @matt.groening who may have sat here but is unquestionably a great supporter of the arts! Front row seats at the Mark Taper Forum we discovered this small plaque on the arm rest right between my wonderful wife Lisa and me here waiting to see "Head of Passes." Just before, I introduced via Skype The 18th Annual Animation Show of Shows to students, local animation fans at San Francisco Community College and faculty advisor Tim Harrington.

The opening night of Matthew Bourne's Production of The Red Shoes had all the glamour and excitement of a Cole Porter Opening! The show is absolutely fantastic! You have to see it! The sets,music, cast, lighting, costuming and performances were stunning! Honestly, I would put it right up there with Hamilton and A Chorus Line. It was That Good! Sir Matthew Bourne and Michael Ritchie, Artistic Director of Center Theatre Group sat at our table (Judie's table!) during the dinner and Judie was seated next to Matthew during the performance.💫There were endless standing ovations, 👏👏applause, and Bravos galore! Afterwards, before heading off to the cast party at Odium, we were able to congratulate Matthew personally! Biggest thanks to Judie for sharing her Big Night with us and for her part in bringing this Grand Performance to LA and The Center Theatre Group! #theredshoes #matthewbourne #cindycanzoneri #pickyandpushymalibu #centertheatregroup #judiestein #instanthit #bravo #hugesuccess #openingnight #openingnightparty #greatperformance #tonycanzoneri #theatre #nothingmattersbutart #hanschristianandersen #dance #ballet #balletshoes #bernardherrmann #lezbrotherston at Ahmanson Theatre

Center Theatre Group What an incredible way to jump back into the LA social/cultural scene. My dear friend Judie Stein invited us to join her for the Opening Night of Matthew Bourne's Production of "The Red Shoes". We began the evening with a special donors cocktail party and dinner in The Founders Room at The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Judie generously sponsored Matthew Bourne's Associate Artist position at The Center Theatre Group!

We created something magical and it opened a year ago today. I've been thinking about our Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and Taper family all day. The entire team showed up and showed out. It truly was something special. I've learned to count my blessings and this experience was a giant one. My heart is full. I am so grateful for each moment spent with this glorious family in honor of Mr. Wilson's story. Happy Anniversary team Ma Rainey!

#TheCuriousIncidentOfTheDogInTheNightTime Fan-bl**dy-tastic! Funny/sad/thought-provoking/moving/overwhelming/sensory-overload that I was not expecting from watching a play! What an Incredible live theater experience. Expertly directed by Elliott, with an excellent cast especially the young lead Langdon. I can’t fathom how he does it day/week-in-day/week-out - seriously, theatre actors deserve all the accolades they get. *Exceptional* production, lighting, video, sound design and music. An absolute *must*-watch! . . . . . . [Spoiler Alert!] PS. Yes, the London Tube is as horrible as the play suggests... 😁 [Spoiler Alert!] PPS. *Definitely* stay for the “post-credit sequence”!!

Caught Benjamin Wheelwright as Christopher the protagonist- as much as I yearn to catch Benedict Cumberbatch onstage in this lifetime, this young man harbors massive potential in an actor's scope.

@homeandyonder

I'd read "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime", years ago and I couldn't quite imagine how this would translate to the stage. The answer is brilliantly. The show played at the Ahmanson and the lead actor gave a stunning performance. However, as a greater conversation on neurodiversity, I must offer our particular insights. The play centers on the experiences of a boy with Asperger's and the family dynamic this has created. Though it was far from our family's experience, there were moments that resonated enough to conjure memories of challenges we faced. As a family who has lived through this, the thing that makes it uncomfortable is that shows/books such as this, depict one person's unique experience, yet most audience members will generalize and think "This must be what it's really like to have autism". Aspergers is a spectrum disorder and while some people may present like Christopher does, other cases are more subtle, either due to serious early intervention, or simply due to genetics. And for every savant, there are greater numbers who are of average intellect. There are also geniuses, who may have niche talents/interests, but who blend in with the neurotypical population. So, when an audience sees a show such as this, which depicts an extreme character in an extreme circumstance, it is great theatre, but it is a characterization of one instance. As a performer I understand that you want higher stakes characters and situations to create dramatic tension. As a performer, these are the roles that you dream of playing. But it seems this is the only depiction of Aspergers that is ever shown and therefore, it becomes more of a stereotype than a true depiction of neurodiversity. In general, I do believe the show struck the right tone, and the acting and staging was brilliant. However, in particular, the #AhmansonTheatre was insensitive in providing photo ops with props for this particular show. It struck us as rather distasteful. Would there be a crutch for "A Christmas Carol" photo op? #thecuriousincidentofthedoginthenighttime #neurodiversity #aspergers #homeandyonder @homeandyonder #curiousincident #centertheatregroup #nationaltheatre @ctgla at Ahmanson Theatre

Adam Langdon as Christopher Boone in the touring production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time." ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ Langdon thankfully doesn’t overdo it, but Christopher’s enthusiasms and disappointments have a more familiar ring to them. Was this a conscious decision by the tour to soften the characterization or just the result of an actor’s distinctive interpretive shading? In any case, the portrayal is still most powerful when it expresses sadness or tenderness more objectively, a body collapsed on the floor after an explosion of distress or an outstretched palm giving the green light for hand-to-hand contact. Christopher’s father may be the central figure in his life, but it is through the women onstage that we come to understand him best. As Siobhan, Ramirez brings a devoted attention to her interactions with a gifted pupil who deduces on his own that even the most committed teacher cannot be a mother. Felicity Jones Latta, in the role of Christopher’s mom, helps us to see more humanely how love and fallibility can coexist. “Curious Incident” refuses to label Christopher because labels are unnecessarily limiting. The ending movingly balances the open-endedness of his story with some unspoken realism about the challenges he will continue to face. The success of the play can be measured by how invested we have become in Christopher’s future. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #centertheatregroup #broadway #act #nationaltour #excitement #entertainment #theatergirl #instagram #broadway #instagood #instamoments #fashion #love #live #eveningout #math #mathmatics #movement #hair #makeup #instafun #dog #geometery #theatrelife #theatrelove #theatreplay #theatretime #theaterarts #equation #theatrenight

Adam Langdon as Christopher Boone (top center) with the cast of the touring production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time." ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨Despite all the external and internal obstacles, the case of the slain dog and the theater project move forward. Elliott’s production loosely plays with the idea that the drama we are watching is the one that is being presented at Christopher’s school. That explains some of the mugging and goofiness, but rather than fixate on instances of excessive cutesiness, I found myself admiring the physical fluidity of the performers, most of whom take on numerous roles. The choreography by Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett for Frantic Assembly isn’t as sharp as it was in London or New York, but it’s marvelously expressive of Christopher’s mode of perception. This is a character who navigates his path with an obsessive orderliness, moving according to the rules of some chessboard game of his own invention. The wrong color or, even worse, an unasked-for hug can throw him wildly off-course. Elliott’s staging vividly externalizes both the elegance and chaos of a mind that excels in mathematics but can short-circuit during friendly small talk with a benevolent old neighbor. The biggest difference between Langdon’s Christopher and the award-winning predecessors I’ve seen in the role (Alex Sharp on Broadway and Luke Treadaway in London) has to do with the emotional color that seeps into his line readings. His genial performance lacks the austerity that made “Curious Incident” instructively challenging for theatergoers who expect characters to mirror their own sentimental processing of the play’s experience. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #centertheatregroup #broadway #act #nationaltour #excitement #entertainment #theatergirl #instagram #broadway #instagood #instamoments #fashion #love #live #eveningout #math #mathmatics #movement #hair #makeup #instafun #dog #geometery #theatrelife #theatrelove #theatreplay #theatretime #theaterarts #equation #theatrenight

L-R: Adam Langdon as Christopher Boone, Felicity Jones Latta as Judy and Maria Elena Ramirez as Siobhan in the touring production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time." ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ In hunting down the culprit with his algorithmic logic, Christopher uncovers many painful truths about grownup reality. But he also finds within himself resources he didn’t know he had. His resiliency in the face of disappointment and disillusionment is no doubt part of the widespread appeal of a drama that has rivaled in popularity some successful recent musicals. I’ve seen Marianne Elliott’s production in the West End and on Broadway, where she won the Tony for her direction (her second after “War Horse”), and what continues to impress me is the way she dynamically theatricalizes Christopher’s relationship to the world. The box-like set by Bunny Christie is enlivened with video projections (a welter of computer screen graphics designed by Finn Ross); blips, beeps and poetic clangs (the sound magic of Ian Dickinson for Autograph); and lighting effects that can become blinding in moments of crisis (the artistry of Paule Constable). The scene in which Christopher tries to rescue his pet rat, which has escaped its carrier and jumped onto dangerous train tracks, combines these design elements into a dreamscape of multimedia suspense. Christopher begins writing a book about his detective work that his teacher Siobhan (Maria Elena Ramirez) convinces him to turn into a play. His father, Ed (Gene Gillette), is vehemently opposed to this investigation for reasons that will take time to sort out, but Christopher isn’t easily deterred from his mission. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #centertheatregroup #broadway #act #nationaltour #excitement #entertainment #theatergirl #instagram #broadway #instagood #instamoments #fashion #love #live #eveningout #math #mathmatics #movement #hair #makeup #instafun #dog #geometery #theatrelife #theatrelove #theatreplay #theatretime #theaterarts #equation #theatrenight

Adam Langdon as Christopher Boone and Maria Elena Ramirez as Siobhan in the touring production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time." ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” Simon Stephens’ Tony-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon’s bestselling novel, presents the world of Christopher Boone as this young accidental detective uniquely experiences it. Christopher’s condition isn’t named, but it has many of the hallmarks of Asperger’s syndrome. Christopher cannot tolerate being touched. Animals are his friends, but human emotions perplex him. He’s a whiz with numbers and can remember every incidental detail in a landscape, but he needs to take a remedial class on life activities. As played by Adam Langdon in the National Theatre production that is likely to find an appreciative audience at the Ahmanson Theatre, where the play opened on Thursday, Christopher seems like a quirky 15-year-old still growing into his lanky frame and still wrestling to understand an adult world that is more duplicitous than it appears. (Benjamin Wheelwright plays the demanding role at weekend matinees.) There’s a Hamlet-like quality to Christopher, who is similarly burdened with the responsibility of administering justice to a murderer, albeit of a pet. And like Shakespeare’s melancholy prince, he becomes increasingly overwhelmed by the discoveries he makes of the people closest to him. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #centertheatregroup #broadway #act #nationaltour #excitement #entertainment #theatergirl #instagram #broadway #instagood #instamoments #fashion #love #live #eveningout #math #mathmatics #movement #hair #makeup #instafun #dog #geometery #theatrelife #theatrelove #theatreplay #theatretime #theaterarts #equation #theatrenight

Adam Langdon as Christopher Boone in the touring production of “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time." ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ The Broadway production debuted at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on 5 October 2014 and closed on 4 September 2016. It won the 2015 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, 2015 Outer Critics Circle Award Outstanding New Broadway Play, the 2015 Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play, and the 2015 Tony Award for Best Play. The story concerns a mystery surrounding the death of a neighbour's dog that is investigated by young Christopher Boone, who has an autism spectrum condition, and his relationships with his parents and school mentor. The play reworked the source material by changing its voice and presenting the story as a play-within-a-play. The play has received a generally warm reception, with most critics impressed by its ability to convey the point of view of the young protagonist and the compassion of his school mentor. Critics also generally spoke highly of the visual effects employed during the show. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #centertheatregroup #broadway #act #nationaltour #excitement #entertainment #theatergirl #instagram #broadway #instagood #instamoments #fashion #love #live #eveningout #math #mathmatics #movement #hair #makeup #instafun #dog #geometery #theatrelife #theatrelove #theatreplay #theatretime #theaterarts #equation #theatrenight
