Hit comedy Women Are Crazy Because Men Are A**holes shines a harsh and hilarious spotlight on relationships in the modern world. The play, from writer-director Brad Gottfred, centers around single lady Nicole, who's finally meeting her new crush, Dylan, after a two-month internet courtship. The two get together along with several other couples at a celebratory brunch that quickly devolves into a series of sexual misadventures among all of the parties involved. After a sold-out run in Chicago, this crowd-pleasing comedy returns to Los Angeles before heading to the off-Broadway stage in 2014. Learn More

I went to see a preview of this show on Saturday Sept 17th. The theater itself was a very intimate experience that continued on stage. I was taken back to the 30's and old Hollywood instantly and the scene where Garbo enters was mystic, powerful and perfect.
The cast was amazing all around. I will call out Lina Hall as Greta Garbo who delivered a stunning performance as the iconic star both funny and sad with a spot-on Swedish accent. John Nagle performed a couple of parts as a Hollywood producer and an editor. His performance made the transition to the 30's even more believable. Odalys Nanin (also writer, producer and co-director of this play) performs the lead character Mercedes de Acosta and passionately guides us through this secret Hollywood love story. Go see it!

This play was based on historic fact and had an interesting subject. Unfortunately it was so poorly written and acted that my friend and I laughed all the way back to Pasadena. We felt like we were watching a junior high production.
Quotes & Highlights
- "An intriguing, well-performed portrait of romantic obsession and the attraction of opposites, skillfully shaped with emotionally probing dialogue." --The Los Angeles Times
- "Nanin knows de Acosta from the inside out, and so her direction... and acting are sublime. There's hardly a false move, as the piece moves swiftly from studio office to salon to lake to Hollywood manse." --broadwayworld.com
