Bug fairs, puppets, a peek into local homes and gardens and so much more to explore on a beautiful May weekend. (Pssst... this is why we live here!)
Roger Mathey's latest revival of Irvine Welsh's cult novel about a circle of heroin addict friends in Edinburgh, Scotland, Trainspotting, is one of the most visceral, blood and guts stage dramas I've seen in recent memory -- or maybe ever.
The 2013 L.A. Modernism show is a chic and curated event that hits the city and captures over sixty exhibitors showing design, decorative and art from across the 20th century. Cool local artists, retailers and companies were on hand this past week and did not disappoint with amazing collections.
This weekend has a smorgasbord of other cultural offerings from the Los Angeles Children's Film Festival at the Aero Theater to a Topanga Canyon festival and K.A.M.P. at the Hammer.
For a taste of Spain via L.A., chef Sergio Perera, who worked at San Sebastian's Arzak in Spain, as well as at Jean-Georges and Ludobites, pops-up at Echo Park's Cortez starting tonight and tomorrow.
I think that MOCA and its Geffen Contemporary offshoot, are really fulfilling their missions under the direction of a fellow named Jeffrey Deitch.
It's hard to top CicLAvia, but we've got butterflies, puppets, another energized dance performance, a free music concert and an incredible film festival at the ArcLight Hollywood.
On Friday evening, May 17, there will be a spectacular musical event at the Eli & Edythe Broad Stage -- the first of six performances of a new opera, Dulce Rosa, based upon a celebrated short story by Chilean author, Isabel Allende.
The weather is going to be glorious this weekend, and there will be lots to do, including Brokechella, which we love for obvious reasons, the LA Times Festival of Books, which is basically our Christmas, and a really random '80s dance party, which needs no caveat.
Friday is Liz Glynn: The Myth of Getting it Right the First Time at LACMA at 7:30 p.m.
As third grade teachers, for many years we have taken our students to the Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum in a wooded setting at the top of Topanga Canyon. Luckily, everyone in Los Angeles can experience what we have witnessed year after year.
Saturday is Kaz Oshiro from 6-8 p.m.
Sometimes great pieces of original art take their own sweet time, as is the case with Assisted Living -- which should have Los Angeles theatre-goers sending a new batch of fan mail Winnie Holzman and Paul Dooley's way.
On Wednesday evening, I attended a production of David Mamet's play American Buffalo at the wondrous Geffen Playhouse -- the first such production in L.A. in a dozen years.
It's sunny out, which means one thing: sno-balls at the Deli at Little Dom's. Starting today, the Los Feliz deli will have the finely shaved ice treat in raspberry, blueberry, coconut cream and almond cream, with housemade syrups and fresh fruit for toppings.
