Now in its 60th year, the pioneering Paul Taylor Dance Company stages several of its acclaimed pieces at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Dubbed the "naughty boy" of dance by Martha Graham, Taylor's not only one of the greatest modern choreographers of the 20th century, he's also one of the 21st century's most daring innovators, still creating well into his 80s. His 16-member company embodies his continuing genius and nurtures new talent -- Tony winners Twyla Tharp and David Parsons are among its many distinguished alumni. Expect a wonderful show of kinetic movement, enthralling storytelling and surprising humor from one of the true legends of the form. Learn More

Incredible night at the theatre. I'd seen this actor before, on PBS and on stage, so knew it'd be wonderful...but what a treat. Ian Ruskin commands the stage as Aussie union leader Harry Bridges. I learned a lot about the reasons unions were formed...and even more...how to live true to your beliefs and not let government bureaucrats, business owners and others block your dreams of equality and democracy....funny it took an immigrant Aussie to do this. Great active Q&A after, and loved the opening night reception with food from whole foods and wine! Going again to enjoy the Paine opening night tonight!
My friends and I also love going to Abbott Kinney just a block away- named the coolest street in the US by GQ!
