Direct from their recent success at The Million Dollar Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles (where they entertained over 3,000 people in a single evening), The Bootleg Variety Hour is a smart, snappy, spontaneous evening of entertainment that does not rely on camera tricks, laugh tracks, hidden electronics or audience stooges. (“Progress” was a good idea, but it’s gone on too long!) Hosted by the dapper David Kovac, the first weekend of April will feature the full stage illusions of Sebastian Kraine -- such as The Cuckoo Clock, Try To Fly and Let’s Steal The Moon!

Special Musical Guests:
Asa Danekind on April 2 & 4
Andrew Goldenhersh on April 3

Doors at 7:00pm | Show at 7:30pm
Thursday - Saturday, April 2 - 4

Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers presents

Louise Reichlin & Dancers Celebrating 35 Years  with 2 extraordinary works at the Bootleg Theater

"The Tennis Dances' (complete version) and 'Tap Dance Widows Club'

Produced in Association with Bootleg Theater 

April 9-12, 2015. Thursday, Friday & Saturday at 7:15 pm, Sunday at 2:00 pm 

 *First revival of the complete Tennis Dances since 1999, our signature 1979 work

 Since 1979, REICHLIN'S LA CHOREOGRAPHERS & DANCERS has created works reviewed as "wildly theatrical and fun". The Tennis Dances- "Brilliant...provocative...cinematic" "Clever evocations of theatre dance styles...everything from Fokine and Graham to Bejart and beyond, all unified by rackets and nets and tennis balls." Dance MagazineLA Times

* Tap Dance Widows Club is "Spectacular, moving, uplifting!"

Past & present meet for an eclectic celebration of life in Tap Dance Widows Club, a 50' film / live production that tells a story of the love of three performers for their late husbands and the bond it created between them. "The interweaving of time, of distinctly different worlds through both video and dance, makes this piece not only unique, but deeply touching."
