There’s nothing like the chill of death to highlight the warmth of spring,
And the gold standard of Los Angeles theater terror is Urban Death: the signature production of Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre Group.
Directed by Zombie Joe and Jana Wimer and opening this Saturday, the late night assemblage of Grand Guignol vignettes uses the classic combination of humor and horror for maximum effectiveness; the former relaxes you and puts you at ease, which makes the emotional gut punch of the real, raw, up-close-and-personal horror all the more effective.
Think shock value underscored by existential horror.
So…pretty much the quintessential Los Angeles experience.
URBAN DEATH — Sat, April 11 – Sat, May 16; 11 pm. $15; 15+ — Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre, 4850 Lankershim Blvd, NoHo 91601. For tix & more info, go HERE. For reservations, call 818. 202.4120.
It’s Not Rocket Science…
…you will definitely want to blast off this Sunday at Yuri’s Night Los Angeles: a space bash under the Endeavor Space Shuttle!
Rock it with rocket scientists including astronaut Dr. Mae Jamison, JPL’s “Mohawk Guy” Bobak Ferdosi, and Tina Merrie Newman (Mars Art Car).
Wave glow sticks with space oddities from Star Trek, Babylon 5, and The X-Files.
Do the Robot with R2D2 and the Dalek from Dr. Who.
Sip space-themed cocktails and soar through 200,000 galaxies to the farthest reaches of the universe via the COSMOS astronomical survey courtesy of astronomer Miguel Angel Argon Calvo.
This year’s Yuri’s Night theme is “A New Hope” so rock your Star Wars Throne Room best and Space Jam with stormtroopers.
One small dance step for man, one giant leap for wookie-kind.
