Pencil This In: Poetry at the Beach House, Lee Ritenour at the Grammy Museum and Naughty Cartoons
The Antaeus Company’s ClassicsFest continues this week with a fully staged work-in-progress of Les Blancs by Lorraine Hansberry. Directed by Gregg Daniel, the play examines civil rights struggles through the tale of an “African from England who becomes entwined in conflict and rebellion on the continent.” Tonight at tomorrow at 8 pm at Deaf West Theatre. Tickets: $10. DIRTY ‘TOONS
Tonight the Cinefamily presents the program Turned-On Toons (feat. Down And Dirty Duck) tonight at 8 pm. The 1974 Roger Corman-produced Down And Dirty Duck, was a response to the successful Fritz The Cat. “Duck is a strikingly stylized psychedelic odyssey of sexual frustration, and an off-color oddity that perfectly embodies the raunchy underground élan of the 1970s.” Following the screening, there will be a Q&A with director Charles Swenson. Tickets: $13/$9 for members.
