A 2009 Tony Award nominee for Best Play, Reasons to Be Pretty takes on our collective obsession with physical beauty. The Geffen Playhouse's production stars Amber Tamblyn (Joan of Arcadia, Two and a Half Men), Nick Gehlfuss (Shameless), Shawn Hatosy (Reckless) and Alicia Witt (Justified). In this savagely comic piece by controversial writer Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men, Your Friends & Neighbors), a working class guy finds his life thrown into disarray when he makes the offhand comment that -- compared to a pretty co-worker -- his girlfriend is just "regular." With dialogue that's intense even for LaBute, Reasons to Be Pretty shines a light on our obsession with physical beauty and how easy it is to be casually cruel. Learn More
Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.Tune-In Festival L.A.: eighth blackbird travel • Mar 31 2014 star this tip starred

The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker centers around Kara Johnson, a young spirit-filled girl who receives a nutcracker filled with hot chocolate for the holidays. Falling into a deep sleep, Kara embarks on a mystical, magical journey, from Candy Cane Lane to the Land of the Kimono Dolls to Bollywood. Three wisecracking rats narrate the story: Harvey (Carlo Imperato), Schmink (Jaleel White) and Buckey (Ms. Allen herself). With an original score by Mariah Carey, Arturo Sandoval, Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen, James Ingram, Shiamak Davar, Tena Clark and Thump, The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker is sure to be a hit with audiences of all ages.
