Celebrate the grittiness and style of film noir at a beautiful 1925 movie palace -- the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale -- with a double dose of films featuring car chases and gun-toting dames aplenty. In Gun Crazy, a man becomes obsessed with a sharpshooting femme fatale, leading them both down a dark road of armed robbery, car theft and murder. This essential film noir was filmed on location in Los Angeles, including a bank robbery scene shot in nearby Montrose. The Lineup, set in 1958 San Francisco, stars Eli Wallach as the maniacal leader of a gang in mad pursuit of a group of innocent tourists who've had heroin stashed in their luggage. The Lineup was directed by Don Siegel, who would go on to direct such high-profile films as Dirty Harry. Learn More

The venue is incredible, the choice of material was a daunting exercise, but the production was brilliant. And to have the original Broadway star introduce it all with some backstage stories about Kurt Weill.....what a treasure.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Street Scene is a highly dramatic musical about a day in the life of a New York tenement, where seduction, betrayal and murder all play a part. Composer Kurt Weill (Threepenny Opera) broke new ground using an unusual combination of musical styles—some Puccini-esque, some jazz, jitterbug and even gospel. _
Street Scene_ has tremendous cast and musical requirements and therefore is rarely performed. Musical Theatre Guild is pleased to present it as a special concert event.
