The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe

The Mark Taper Forum at The Music Center
135 N. Grand Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90012

Weaving together the seemingly disparate tales of a punk-rock rebel, wealthy Californian socialites, and feminist reactionaries in search of aliens, Emmy Award-winner Jane Wagner's beloved play The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe is a hilarious and timeless play about what makes us human. Emmy-nominated Saturday Night Live cast member Cecily Strong stars in this 90-minute one-woman show originally written for LIly Tomlin that has audiences "rooting for her from the get-go..." You may not need to travel across the cosmos to find meaning and hope in life here on Earth.

“Strong has us rooting for her from the get-go. She grounds her interpretation of the play's oddball and appealing assortment of characters with a straighforward, amiable and nicely detailed comic style.” (Deadline)

Oedipus show logo

Outdoor, at the beautiful Getty Villa
17985 Pacific Coast Highway, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272

The J. Paul Getty Museum and Los Angeles’s Tony Award-winning Deaf West Theatre present a thrilling fresh take on Sophocles’s Oedipus this fall featuring a bilingual production in American Sign Language (ASL) and spoken English. Directed by Jenny Koons (Blue Man Group, Head Over Heels at The Pasadena Playhouse), Oedipus premieres as the 16th annual outdoor theater production at the Getty Villa. In this visually rich and innovative reimagining of Sophocles’ classic play, Oedipus unfolds as a murder mystery, a political thriller, and a psychological whodunit. Throughout this fabled story of patricide and family complexities, King Oedipus is confronted not only with legacy and destiny but also culture and language. This reimagined production will center American Sign Language and incorporate present day technology, bringing new artistic facets to a classic piece of Greek literature. View a preview of the production.

Discount Offered:
