LAist Recommends: Pirates & Ninjas at Theatre of NOTE
Throughout this next month, start your Hollywood weekend night with this overly silly, but laugh-out-loud production of three short plays about two genres so lovable that Kenneth Branagh recently shot Shakespeare's As You Like It ninja style and it's inevitable a fourth in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is to come.
Pirates and Ninjas, a production by this year's L.A. Weekly Award winner for Production of the Year (Marat/Sade), Blue House Theatre/Big Mama Farm, is kitschy backyard comedy theater with minimal set and excellent live music. From a choose your adventure ninja tale in your apartment to a story of a pirate moving in next door to a ninja, this set of short plays will leave you with a smile and wanting to go minimalist with your apartment decor like a ninja or yell "Yar!!!" (not Argh, mind you).
Fridays and Saturdays through September 22. Doors open for small gallery exhibition at 8:30. Showtime at 9 p.m. Added pay-what-you-dare performance on Saturday, September 15 at Midnight.
