Walking the Tightrope

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_calendar/item/walking_the_tightrope

Unveiling the centerpiece of its 2012-13 season of sophisticated and provocative theater that appeals to and is appropriate for kids while maintaining the look and emotional depth of adult theater, 24th STreet Theatre presents the West Coast premiere of a highly theatrical and stylized tone poem that is also appropriate for children 6 and up. How does one survive the death of a spouse? Stan is lost—until he rediscovers his will to live during a visit from his young granddaughter. Kids will tap into this moving exploration of adult grief through the character of Esme, who visits her grandparents’ seaside home, but can’t find Nanna. Walking the Tightrope continues the groundbreaking work that earned 24th STreet Theatre last season’s national TCG Peter Zeisler Award for risk taking and innovation in the American theater. Jan 26-March 30; 24th STreet Theatre, 1117 West 24th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90007-1725; $10-$15; (213) 745-6516; www.24thstreet.org; Join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/24thSTor follow us on Twitter @24thST
