Cabo Taco is way on the other side of the shopping center from La Mirada. Great food and really good craft beers!

Description

A Disappearing Number opened in Plymouth in 2007 and has subsequently toured all over the world to New York, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Ann Arbor, Milan, Sydney, Barcelona and London. Prior to the National Theatre Live broadcast it will play a limited West End season. Awards include the Olivier Award for Best New Play (2008), the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Play (2007) and The Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for Best New Play (2007).

A Disappearing Number weaves together the story of two love affairs, separated by a century and a continent. The first happens now. The second is set in 1914. It tells of the heartbreaking collaboration between the greatest natural mathematician of the 20th century, Srinivasa Ramanujan, a penniless Brahmin from Madras in South India, and his British counterpart, the brilliant Cambridge don GH Hardy. With a haunting original score by Nitin Sawhney, this piece of startling visual poetry from Simon McBurney and Complicite is a compelling meditation on love, mathematics and the pain of exile in an age when we think we can belong anywhere and have everything.

_A Disappearing Number _is a Complicite co-production with the Barbican, London, Ruhrfestspiele, Wiener Festwochen, Holland Festival, in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth.

National Theatre Live performances are filmed live in high definition and broadcast via satellite to over 300 cinemas around the world, live in Europe and some US cities, and time-delayed in countries further afield. There are over 75 venues in the UK alongside venues in the USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Scandinavia and Europe. The performances at the National are nominated in advance to allow cameras greater freedom in the auditorium.

This screening heralds the second season of National Theatre LIve the NT’s groundbreaking initiative to broadcast live performances of plays to cinemas and performing arts venues around the world. The first season was seen by over 165,000 people on 320 screens in 22 countries.
