Rogue Artists presents the Gogol Project, three tales by Nikolai Gogol, father of modern Russian realism and satire: “Diary of a Madman,” “The Overcoat,” and “The Nose.” The troupe uses puppetry, masks, music and digital projection in the production, which was written by journalist Kitty Felde. Gogol Project opens tonight with a special gala (now sold out) at 6:30 pm and a performance by Ego Plum and catering by Gastrobus. The play runs at the Bootleg Theater through Nov. 1. 

The First Ever John Varvatos Warehouse Sale in Los Angeles starts today and runs through Sunday. “Style icons from Will Smith to Iggy Pop and from Casey Affleck to John Legend like their menswear just the way John Varvatos serves it - modern and edgy, but luxuriously crafted and tailored.” The sale for the well-heeled man and the women who dress them can buy items up to 90%. The sale runs each day from 10 am to 8 pm at the Los Angeles Convention Center West Hall. Registration is required for attendees.
