Probably a dozen spots in back, then you have to find parking on the busy high traffic street.

Description

From LA Stage Times:

Interspersing scenes of a police interrogation, David J’s newer multi-media and multi-discipline play features some instrumental music as well as a song cycle that is poetically and thematically related to form a unified work. In this theatrical staging, the music works as a framework around which another related story is interwoven, that of torch singer Madi Comfort.

The genesis of this play is the Black Dahlia song cycle that David J originally composed, in collaboration with musician Ego Plum, for an independent feature film, The Devil’s Muse, in 2007. Explains the artist, “I was approached by the director of that film, Ramzi Abed, who wanted me to write some new music for an experimental movie. He said his was a very surreal treatment of the Black Dahlia mystery. I was familiar with that murder case, but not overly so. When I started to research it, it really caught fire and I started writing these songs, one after the other, just tumbling out of my subconscious. I became obsessed with it. I wrote all the music without seeing the film.”
