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. Hosted by the dapper David Kovac, the first weekend of April will feature comedy, magic, and the theatrical illusions of Sebastian Kraine -- such as The Cuckoo Clock, Try To Fly and Letís Steal The Moon. Special Musical Guests: The Roswell Sisters

Friday & Saturday, May 1 & 2
Doors at 7:00pm | Show at 7:30pm

Theatre Movement Bazaar and Bootleg Theater present:

BIG SHOT: a.k.a this is not The Godfather

BIG SHOT is a vaudevillian theatrical collage inspired by The Godfather films and novel. The Godfather is an iconic story; the novel and subsequent motion pictures have had significant international cultural influence. Its remarkable success came in part due to its ability to present the gangster genre via a dysfunctional family. Everyone could relate. For BIG SHOT, TMB shakes down this iconic story to create a new work, echoing the source and investigating family dynamics, power, criminal behavior, and being an Italian American. In BIG SHOT, the American gangster genre is upended through stylized theatrics, dynamic movement, song, dance and pasta.

Coming in May

To help meet the challenges of presenting and producing dance in Los Angeles, Pentacle steps up to the plate with Home Grown, a new pilot program that offers participants opportunities to show their work, to build and expand the audiences, and to create audience identity with the Bootleg Theater.

This program will feature a new contemporary work by Danza Floricanto/USAís Artistic Director Gema Sandoval, and a celebration of LA Dance that will include the Dance Resource Centerís 2015 presentation of the Horton Awards.

Founded in 1975, Danza Floricanto/USA is the oldest existing professional Mexican folk dance troupe in Southern California. From an Aztec ritual to the vibrant fiestas of today's Jalisco, from the Spanish-influenced tropics of Veracruz to the conflictive realities of the Chicano experience, Danza Floricanto/USA presents the bold, colorful panorama of its Mexican heritage as it interacts with its American reality.

This year marks the second Dance Resource Center Horton Award Ceremony focusing on those who have contributed to the Los Angeles area dance community. The Horton Awards celebrates dance in Los Angeles, honoring those who sustain the field and propel it forward. DRC will dedicate 3 community awards to local dance advocates, educators, presenters, or funders and one to an artist who has enriched the field.

June 26 at 7pm and June 27 at 1pm and 7pm
