The Year of Tom

Tom Jacobson, former Literary Manager here at Boston Court and author of last year’s The Twentieth-Century Way, has had a great year in LA theatre.  And that streak continues with two simultaneous productions at Atwater Village Theatre…one of them directed by The Theatre @ Boston Court’s Co-Artistic Director, Michael Michetti.

We encourage you, when you aren’t coming to Boston Court to see How To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found, to head over to Atwater to see two new plays by one of Los Angeles’ busiest playwrights. 

Ensemble Studio Theatre-LA presents:
House of the Rising Son
World Premiere by Tom Jacobson
Directed by Michael Michetti

Tennessee Williams meets Anne Rice in a subversive, Southern gothic romance. A parasitologist at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum, Trent Varro brings his new lover home to meet the family in New Orleans. Populated with ghosts and parasites, Jacobson’s play mixes the supernatural with science to illuminate hot button issues of gay marriage and equality in a whole new way. It’s at once a ghost story, a love story, and a family story.

Performances: April 23-May 29 at Atwater Village Theatre.

Circle X Theatre Co. presents:
The Chinese Massacre (Annotated)
World Premiere by Tom Jacobson
Directed by Jeff Liu

1871 Los Angeles was a violent, vicious town. Suspected criminals were often hanged by vigilante groups and lawlessness had reached its peak. The Chinese Massacre (Annotated) tells the story of the first race riot in Los Angeles and the dangerous Wild West town that became the metropolis we know today.

Performances: April 22 – May 28 at Atwater Village Theatre.
