Pageant of the Masters: Paintings Come Alive

Buy Tickets $12 - $85 $25 - $85

See a work of art come to life at the Pageant of the Masters. This one-of-a-kind production, an Orange County tradition, uses real people to recreate classical and contemporary paintings down to the finest detail. As you take in the visual marvel, a narrator guides you through the story behind each work while a live orchestra sets the tone. This year's presentation, The Grand Tour, recreates the experience of a time when there were virtually no public museums and people would go on artistic pilgrimages, traveling around Europe to see great works of art. Highlighting masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Tiepolo, Longhi, Watteau, Reynolds and Romney, as well as American artists like John Singer Sargent, The Grand Tour will take you on a whirlwind journey from Pompeii to a celebration of Carnival in Venice to the European tour of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show to Paris in the Jazz Age. The special Celebrity Benefit evening on August 26th features performances by nine-time Grammy Award-winning trumpeter/songwriter Herb Alpert and two-time Grammy winner Lani Hall. Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor Bryan Cranston draws the winning ticket for a 2018 Acura TLX and introduces a special performance of the 2017 Pageant of the Masters.

Alice Childress' humorous yet heartbreaking look at race follows a cast of black and white actors attempting to mount a production of a "progressive" new show on Broadway in the 1950s. The play-within-the-play, an anti-lynching drama set in the South, marks the first opportunity for gifted black actress Wiletta Mayer to break through on Broadway -- but only if she can quiet her conscience when she realizes that the play may actually perpetuate the very stereotypes it's supposed to protest. This "scathingly funny, wise and extraordinary" (Washington Post) satire was written in 1955 at the dawn of the civil rights movement by Childress, and she became the first African-American woman to receive a professional production in New York. Enjoy this insightful exploration into race relations under the stars at the Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum in Topanga.

"Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown." Richard II and Henry IV examine not just the power and horror that comes with the crown, but the strain it takes to wear it. After being king his whole life, Richard II faces his cousin, who is poised to seize the crown from him. Faced with losing his entire way of life, Richard must discover who he is as a human being, instead of as a king. The rule of Henry IV looks bleak after eight years, facing open rebellion from his kingdom as well as his son. Father and son must overcome their differences before they are deposed and killed in the second of Shakespeare's classics in repertory in The Head That Wears the Crown at Monk Space Theatre in Los Angeles.

Famed French playwright Eugene Ionesco's one-act comedies The Lesson and The Bald Soprano were the first plays ever produced at the Santa Monica Playhouse -- and now they're back in celebration of the theater's 57th anniversary. Ionesco himself attended one of those early performances, of which he raved, "Magnificent! Your fidelity to my original intent is incredible." And you can count on this production remaining true to the famed avant-garde writer as well, as the two 1950-era plays turn everyday social and academic interplay into absurdist comedy, courtesy of the playwright's famed use of deconstructed language. It's even being staged in English one night and French the next, throughout its run at the newly refurbished Artists' Entrance Studio Upstairs.
