CENTENNIAL OF THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE IS OBSERVED WITH CTG AND ARMENIAN DRAMATIC ARTISTS ALLIANCE’S SPECIAL READING
“STAGING THE UNSTAGEABLE: THE ESTHETICS OF DRAMATIZING ATROCITY”

TUESDAY, APRIL 28 AT 8 P.M.

CTG And Armenian Dramatic Artists Alliance To Honor The Centennial Of Armenian Genocide

In observance of the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, Center Theatre Group, in partnership with the Armenian Dramatic Artists Alliance (ADAA), will present “Staging the Unstageable: The Esthetics of Dramatizing Atrocity” at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, Tuesday, April 28 at 8 p.m.

“Staging the Unstageable” is a reading of excerpts from plays that dramatize in different ways the Armenian Genocide, which was the systematic extermination (beginning in April 1915) by the Ottoman Empire of its minority Armenian subjects.

The performance will be followed by a panel discussion with notable guests from the Armenian community and with Los Angeles theatre artists who have grappled with the responsibilities of bringing historical tragedies to the stage. Key to the discussion are the questions – does theatre have a role in ensuring that communities around the world never forget historical sins, and how can a theatre-maker bring such trauma to the stage?

Academy governor Jeffrey Kurland, event producer Cheryl Cecchetto and master chef Wolfgang Puck will return to create this year’s Governors Ball, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ official post-Oscar® celebration, which will immediately follow the 87th Oscars® ceremony on Sunday, February 22. The Ball’s 1,500 invited guests include Oscar winners and nominees, show presenters and other telecast participants.

“The artistry and glamour that have truly defined Hollywood for decades will be highlighted at 87th Oscars Governors Ball,” said Kurland. “We’ve selected the most stunning imagery from the Academy’s vast collections to set the stage for our guests. The Academy will honor and share these timeless moments of a legacy that is in our blood and truly makes us who we are.”

As the chair of the Governors Ball, Kurland will oversee the décor, menu and entertainment planning, as well as design the attire to be worn by the evening’s staff. Kurland is an acclaimed costume designer whose feature credits include “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “Radio Days,” “Crimes and Misdemeanors,” “Erin Brockovich,” “Ocean’s Eleven,” “Inception,” “Beautiful Creatures” and the upcoming “Tomorrowland.” He received an Oscar nomination for Costume Design for “Bullets over Broadway.” This will be Kurland’s sixth year serving as Governors Ball chair.

Cecchetto, along with her Sequoia Productions team, will work with Kurland to manage every detail pertaining to the event, including décor, entertainment, food and personnel. Sequoia Productions’ clients include the Television Academy, G’Day USA, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Westfield and the UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay. This will be Cecchetto’s 26th consecutive year producing the Governors Ball.

Master chef Wolfgang Puck and Matt Bencivenga, chef partner of Wolfgang Puck Catering, have drawn upon vintage and contemporary Hollywood glamour to create a menu that’s both legendary and innovative. The menu will feature more than 50 imaginative dishes, from one-bite hors d’oeuvres to small-plate entrees that will be passed throughout the evening. Guests will enjoy such signature Puck favorites as smoked salmon Oscars, chicken pot pie with shaved black truffles, and mini American Wagyu burgers with aged Cheddar. Puck also will present classic dishes re-imagined for Hollywood’s big night, including lobster “BLT”; beet latkes with pastrami duck and apple mustard; and dover sole with orange miso vinaigrette. Appealing to diverse palates will be modern vegetarian dishes featuring local organic produce, such as parsnip soup with white chocolate, pears and 24k gold; and artichokes with asparagus, fava beans, baby beets and citrus vinaigrette. This year’s dynamic pastry team includes Della Gossett, Spago’s executive pastry chef; Kamel Guechida, corporate director of pastry for the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group; and Jason Lemonnier, Los Angeles pastry chef for Wolfgang Puck Catering. Together these chefs will create such innovative and elegant seasonal desserts as apple millefeuille with cider jelly, peanut butter strawberry lollipop, and milk chocolate panna cotta with raspberry and cherry, as well as Puck’s traditional 24k gold chocolate Oscars. CEO Carl Schuster directs more than 900 event staff through the detailed logistics and hospitality experience. This is Puck’s 21st consecutive year creating the menu for the Governors Ball.

The Governors Ball will take place in the Ray Dolby Ballroom on the top level of the Hollywood & Highland Center® immediately following the Oscar telecast.

Powerhouse Latino theatre group Culture Clash’s “Chavez Ravine: An L.A. Revival,” opens next Wednesday (February 4) at the Center Theatre Group / Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City. Performances run through March 1, 2015.

This revisited and reimagined “Chavez Ravine” is directed by Lisa Peterson (who was at the helm of the world premiere in 2003 at the Mark Taper Forum) and features Culture Clash’s Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza along with Sabina Zuniga Varela and musicians Vaneza Mari Calderón, Randy Rodarte and Scott Rodarte.

“Chavez Ravine” has set design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Christopher Acebo, lighting design by José López, sound design by Paul James Prendergast, music direction/arrangements by John Avila and projection design by Jason H. Thompson. The production stage manager is Kirsten Parker.

Energized with new material and music from the Rodarte Brothers, Culture Clash continues to examine the constantly changing landscape of urban Los Angeles, in particular, the potential transformation of a small, tightly knit neighborhood into what was initially to be a low-income housing project, but eventually became Dodger Stadium.

Following sold-out engagements on Broadway and in London’s West End, television legend, Oscar recipient and five-time Tony Award-winner Angela Lansbury enjoyed continued success with Noël Coward’s smash-hit comedic play “Blithe Spirit” in its Center Theatre Group / Ahmanson Theatre engagement.

Lansbury returned to the Los Angeles stage for the first time in over 30 years, and L.A. audiences had clearly been waiting, making “Blithe Spirit” the best-selling play revival at the Ahmanson Theatre in more than 25 years – a title previously held by “The Trip to Bountiful,” which immediately preceded “Blithe Spirit” in the 2014-2015 season at the Ahmanson.

In addition, “Blithe Spirit” was the third best-selling drama at the Ahmanson in the last 25 years, just behind the plays “God of Carnage” and “War Horse.”

The North American tour of “Blithe Spirit” launched at the Ahmanson on December 9, 2014, and ran through January 18, 2015. Following the L.A. engagement, the tour continued to SHN’s Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco, January 20 through February 1, 2015, and will then move to Mirvish Productions’ Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, February 11 through March 15, and will conclude in Washington, D.C., March 17 through March 29, at the National Theatre where Lansbury made her first pre-Broadway stage debut nearly 58 years ago to the day.
