In one of the latest works by Pulitzer Prize-winning David Mamet (American Buffalo, Glengarry Glen Ross), two attorneys are charged with defending a white man accused of raping an African-American woman. In the face of unraveling evidence, the lawyers' own uncomfortable beliefs about race rise to the surface. Director John Dillon tackles Mamet's rat-a-tat language and sharp jabs in this confrontational comedy that skewers modern-day "polite" society. Race premiered on Broadway in 2009 starring James Spader and David Alan Grier. Learn More

Cathy Rigby captures the spirit of Peter perfectly. Just be prepared for a little background noise since it is kid friendly. There was one swear word in the beginning but overall was acceptable for young and old. I'm a fan of pixie dust.
Quotes & Highlights
- Read the <a target="_blank" href="http://www.goldstar.com/events/la-mirada-ca/peter-pan?reviews=all#reviews">great reviews</a> the show received from Goldstar members in Southern California.
- "To see [Rigby's] fearless and ebullient flying, newly choreographed by Paul Rubin with even more athletic flips, is to suspect that the role actually functions as a youth elixir ... [Brent Barrett as Captain Hook] is extremely charming, but children will be too busy cheering for Peter to mourn his fate. Afterward they’ll scramble to gather the fallen pixie dust from the carpet. Adults should consider grabbing a handful for themselves. Maybe it won’t confer eternal youth, but it can’t hurt." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/culture/la-et-cm-peter-pan-at-la-mirada-theatre-for-the-performing-arts-20120604,0,7812830.story"><em>Los Angeles Times</em></a>
