LAist Recommends: Pirates & Ninjas at Theatre of NOTE

Support your source for local news!
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

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).

Tip: Afterwards, choose your poison on the Cahuenga Crawl: Tokio for ninjas or Tiny's K.O. for pirates.
