A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rearview of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon: for $25, you get admission to the performance of your choice (a $45 value) at the California International Theatre Festival, which takes place from July 17 to July 25 at Calabasas City Hall and Calabasas Commons. This Groupon can be used toward any show except for the festival wrap party, Across the Borders.
For nine days in July, the annual theater festival stages an eclectic collection of international plays, premieres, and readings. This season’s lineup represents the finest union of worldly performances since Les Misérables: As Performed by Members of the U.N. The lineup includes the U.S. premiere of Ireland’s Gare St. Lazare Players’ production of The End and Israel’s Orto-Da Theatre Group’s production of Stones, a movement piece in which the troupe’s mime artists depict a living statue that commemorates Jewish warriors of the Warsaw Ghetto. Full descriptions of the season can be found here; consult the season schedule for performance details. Please note that some performances are free throughout the festival's run.
