The Wallis in Beverly Hills promises some truly wonderful cultural offerings this month. Saffron Burrows (Mozart in the Jungle) plays none other than Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the world premiere of playwright Tom Dugan’s one-woman play Jackie Unveiled. Iranian-American artist Sussan Deyhim makes her Wallis debut with The House is Black Media Project, a timely celebration of the work of Iranian feminist icon Forough Farrokhzad.
The Wallis once again partners with The ASCAP Foundation for the third annual Musical Theatre Workshop, as well as an evening with Wicked composer Stephen Schwartz hosting composers Marcy Heisler, Zina Goldrich, Cinco Paul and special guest Megan Hilty. Showtune aficionados will also want to catch Broadway @ The Wallis with Patti LuPone and Seth Rudetsky.
The UK’s Kneehigh Theatre returns to The Wallis for their third engagement (after Brief Encounter in ‘14 and 946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips in ‘17) with The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk, about the romance between Russian-French artist Marc Chagall and his wife Bella. Last but certainly not least, Kneehigh founder David Mynne brings his family-friendly adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic Great Expectations – in which he plays all of the characters!
