Throw on your ugliest holiday sweater, grab a hot toddy and join the Actors' Gang at Ivy Substation for the annual Queen Family telethon, known as the toast of the holiday season. Each year is bustling with magicians, aerialists, tap dancers and more live entertainers. And this year, the Queens have decided to celebrate diversity (in accordance with a court-ordered mandate), and everyone from atheists to Amish have been invited to The Queen Family's Very Special Holiday Special.

A well researched, truthful account of early American history of the 17th century in Jamestown, Va. I loved the Commedia dell Arte staging, where the actors change costumes, masks and characters on both wings of the outer stage, and delivery includes intense drama with light jester moments. 3 ethnic groups; Potowan indigenous people, Europeans, and Africans from Angola were each introduced by their creation stories through puppetry. This production was so cleverly conceived that I would like to experience it again!
At Jamestown the convergence of peoples -- the Powhatan Indians, the English settlers and West African Slaves -- set the course for the complex dialectic arc that is the history of the United States. Presented by the Gang’s sizable ensemble and in its signature style, and using shadow puppetry, music, dance and three languages (supertitled), the light of humanity that this country is built upon is ravaged and reborn.
About the Ticket Supplier: Actors' Gang
The Actors' Gang is one of Los Angeles' most enduring theatre ensembles. Founded in 1981 by a group of renegade theatre artists, the Gang's mission is to create bold, original works for the stage and daring reinterpretations of the classics. Our work is raw, immediate, socially minded, and crafted with the highest artistic standards.
Over the course of our first 20 years we have produced 68 plays and won over 100 awards, winning acclaim for our interpretations of Shakespeare, Bruchner, Brecht, Moliere, Aeschylus, Ibsen and Chekhov, while developing in workshop new plays that address the world today through a prism of satire, popular culture and raucous stagecraft.
Through co-productions, The Actors' Gang presented the West Coast Premiere of Eric Bogosian's "Suburbia" with the Namaste Theatre Company, Roger Guenver Smith's "A Huey P. Newton Story," Danny Hoch's "Jails, Hospitals, Hip Hop" with Center Theatre Group, and "Medea/Macbeth/Cinderella" with The Cornerstone Theatre Company. The Actors' Gang has toured with productions as the US representative at the Edinburgh Festival and to New York's Public Theatre with "Carnage, A Comedy"; with "The Imaginary Invalid" to the Rushmore Festival in New York, and in 2001 saw "Bat Boy, A Musical," developed at the Actors' Gang, won the Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics award for best new musical Off-Broadway in New York.
