Work that humbug out with some holiday laughs! Second City alums and veteran Comedy Central writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort have dreamed up this new twisted version of A Christmas Carol, infused with hilarious improv sketches and zany characters written specifically for its cast of L.A.-based Second City alumni. Scrooge, Tiny Tim, three ridiculous ghosts and a cast of The Second City's funniest alums take the Kirk Douglas stage by storm, as wicked satire, daring improv and a host of guest celebs run rampant throughout the Victorian streets.

Shakespeare purists need to stay home, because this production does indeed play fast and loose with the original version. Otherwise, look forward to a fascinating, wildly creative take on the Bard's "Titus Andronicus". So cleverly devised and executed, but the cleverness does not interfere with the heart/soul impact, which is considerable. That cleverness is so twisted, though, that at times I mistook the character's insanity for my own. I walked away having to hold my own head to make sure it was still there. Loved it!
Titus Redux tells the tale of a warrior who returns home after five tours of duty in Afghanistan to bury his eldest son. Resolving to retire from a lifetime of killing on behalf of his country, he quickly discovers that the horrors of war have followed him home.
John Farmanesh-Bocca, still glowing from last summer’s critically triumphant “physical theatre” staging of Pericles Redux at the Kirk Douglas Theater, is muscling up another work of the Bard with co-producers Circus Theatricals (CT). Titus Redux, a guest production at Culver City's Kirk Douglas Theatre. features CT founder Jack Stehlin (from Showtime's Weeds) in the title role. SAG Award-winner Brenda Strong (series regular narrator voice of ABC’s Desperate Housewives), along with three-time daytime Emmy winner Margeaux J. London also star.
