This Weekend in LA Theater...
You want a little more variety in your life? How about checking out the diverse theater scene around town? Here are just five of the shows opening this weekend:
Debbie Does Dallas: The Musical
Yes, you read that right. The ’70s porn classic comes to the stage at the Key Club.
Key Club. 9039 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood. 310-274-5800. Tickets are $35-$55. Opens tonight at 8 pm. Runs Thursdays in August.
A young documentary filmmaker finds the ideal documentary subject: a volatile surgeon who survived the hells of the Chechnya/Russia civil wars. But it’s the filmmaker’s girlfriend who helps unravel the truth about the subject and filmmaker.
The Miles Memorial Playhouse. 1130 Lincoln Blvd., Santa Monica. 323-860-6225. Tickets are $20. Opens Friday at 8 pm. Runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 3 pm until Aug. 26.
Limonade Tous Les Jours
An older American in Paris meets a much younger Parisian cabaret singer. They spend the day wandering the city together, and they speak of all the reasons why they shouldn't fall in love. (Ethan Hawke’s Before Sunrise, anyone?)
