    L.A. Theatre Works’ production of The Mountaintop, a play by Katori Hall  

    L.A. Theatre Works’ production of The Mountaintop, a play by Katori Hall
    “L.A. Theatre Works is a national theatrical treasure...” – The Philadelphia Inquirer
    The Mountaintop is rife with humor and political jabs, and gives us a glimpse at the human side of Martin Luther King Jr. Just hours after his famed final speech, punctuated by the immortal line, "I've been to the mountaintop," the celebrated Reverend reveals his hopes, regrets, and fears, creating a masterful bridge between mortality and immortality.

    The Good Lovelies – Canadian Folk Trio  

    The Good Lovelies – Canadian Folk Trio
    "(They) make three-part harmonies divinely—all sun, serotonin, and retro-radio." – Globe & Mail
    Winner of the Juno Award (Canada’s version of the GRAMMY®), and four-time winner of the Canadian Folk Music Award, The Good Lovelies are one of Canada's premier folk bands. Funny and upbeat, with just a pinch of sass, their textbook three-part harmonies, constant instrument swapping, and witty stage banter have enlivened the folk music landscape since they joined forces in 2006.
