Ayelet Waldman
Ayelet Waldman has proven that she's much more than Michael Chabon's wife. Her new novel, Love and Treasure, is testimony to a unique literary voice as she re-frames the tragic story of WW2's Hungarian gold train, found abandoned and filled with treasure.

Madagascar
Sheila McKenna directs the regional premiere of J.T. Rogers' play Madagascar, winner of the American Theatre Critics Association's 2004 Osborn Award and the 2005 Pinter Review Prize, starring Helena Ruoti, Larry John Meyers, and Melinda Helfrich. About the nature of memory, the Rashomon-style play puts the audience in a sort of jurists' box, as the three characters tell their stories in direct address, weaving an interlocking web designed to reveal the elusive truth.

Bach, Beethoven, & Brahms
Originally for organ, Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor was orchestrated by Leopold Stokowski who conducted it in Disney's Fantasia. With its fiery, rich harmonies and powerful spirit, Beethoven's fourth is surprisingly one of his lesser-known works. With playing touted as "superb, tightly controlled and forcefully articulated" by the L. A. Times, pianist and wildlife conservationist Helene Grimaud returns in Brahms' Piano Concerto #1.

Heads
An American engineer. A British embassy employee. A network journalist. And a freelance photographer. As hostages in a war zone, each responds to the unbearable situation differently, with stark reality and difficult choices. Written by EM Lewis and directed by John Shepard, Heads is a heart-wrenching story about finding hope and intimacy in an environment with seemingly no way out.

Compagnie Kafig
This innovative hip-hop ensemble has become an international phenomenon. Inspired by an encounter with eleven young dancers from the shantytowns of Brazil, director and choreographer Mourad Merzouki created Correria and Agwa—two heart-stopping works that showcase a sensational combination of athletic samba, hip-hop and capoeira dance styles. The all-male company from Brazil exhibits theatrical intelligence and is gifted with irresistible personality and astonishing dancing. Bursting with fun, humor and vitality, this show is set to an energetic soundtrack of samba and bossa nova music.
