History's Epic Fails in All Their Glory

Buy Tickets $8 $15

For every mega-success like the iPhone, VCR and Ford Mustang, there's a couple of Apple Newtons, Betamaxes and Edsels that crashed and burned before them -- and the pop-up exhibition known as The Museum of Failure celebrates these marketing missteps in all their glory. This primo collection of product blunders, curated by a Swedish innovation researcher, brings the best worst ideas together in an Instagram-friendly collection at DTLA's A+D (Architecture and Design) Museum. You'll see artifacts spanning from the 17th century right up to the present, including a Trump-based board game, Casio's tiny color TV, New Coke and plenty more. No word on whether Ishtar is included in this Hollywood edition, however.

Experience Billie Holiday in Holographic 3D

Buy Tickets COMP - $10 $29.95

Once upon a time, holograms were either some sci-fi fantasy ("Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope") or some sort of futuristic technology you'd never hope to see in your lifetime. But when a holographic Tupac Shakur materialized at the 2012 Coachella alongside Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog, minds were forever blown. Now, you can experience the phenomenon yourself in this cutting-edge concert presented by Hologram USA, featuring the best of jazz icon Billie Holiday. Through the use of innovative motion capture, high-tech projections and sound editing, legendary stars like Holiday are digitally resurrected on the stage -- and not only can these life-like re-creations perform all of your favorite tunes, they can also interact with the audience. Step inside L.A.'s Hologram USA Theater and see the future as it's unfolding while marveling at a musical genius of the past.

Into the Woods: Sondheim's Fairy-Tale Mashup

Buy Tickets $20 - $49 $58 - $98

What really happens after "happily ever after?" Stephen Sondheim's Into The Woods answers that question, skillfully interweaving several classic fairy tales into one epic story that goes beyond the happy endings to show what happens when a fairy-tale world gets real. This modern twist on the Brothers Grimm brings together Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), Rapunzel and more. The beloved storybook characters take on startling complexity as they discover that wishes always come with a price. Witches, wolves, giants and mysterious strangers force the heroes to face the music and their future in a world where everything doesn't always end happily. Be sure to catch this humorous and heartfelt romp through the woods, featuring such unforgettable songs as "No One Is Alone," "Children Will Listen" and "Giants in the Sky," when Into The Woods comes to Cupcake Theater in NoHo.

Dane Cook is one of those comedians people either love, or love to hate. You probably already know what side you fall on, but if you aren't sure yet, let's do a little test. Do you like observational humor and jokes that start with "here's what people do when ...?" Do you stay away from topical humor? Do you like jokes that play as well with a house of frat boys as they do with your mom? Then Dane Cook is the guy for you. His stand-up is filled with funny stories, off-kilter questions and quirky observations that will totally have you rolling. He's coming to the Laugh Factory in Hollywood and you pretty much have to go, just to see what he'll come up with next.

Small Mouth Sounds Explores Human Connection

Buy Tickets $23 - $40 $45 - $60

Have you ever wanted to just escape the noise? Six people fleeing from city life meet in the overwhelming quiet of the woods to embark on a silent retreat in the new play Small Mouth Sounds. As these strangers confront their demons, both large and small, their vows of silence collide with the human need to connect with one another. An Off-Broadway hit, the play comes from Drama Desk Award winner Bess Wohl and is directed by Tony nominee Rachel Chavkin. Using awkward and insightful humor, this compassionate and funny work asks how we address life's biggest questions when there's no way to ask them.

Family Secrets Revealed in Arthur Miller's The Price

Buy Tickets $10 $20

Two long-estranged brothers dig through their deceased father's belongings, only to unearth buried resentments and secrets in Arthur Miller's The Price. Considering Miller wrote 25 plays, including Death of a Salesman and The Crucible, it's notable that The New York Times ranks this one as among "the most engrossing and entertaining plays that Miller has ever written." Chalk it up to the play's instantly engaging plot in which two brothers -- one a cop of modest means, the other a successful surgeon -- both return home to clean the attic of their father's soon-to-be-demolished brownstone. But when their discussion moves from the value of heirlooms to the values of their lives -- and when a shrewd appraiser arrives to turn a profit from their father's past -- the stage is set for a confrontation that's been decades in the making. The Hollywood Reporter called The Price "as relevant today as the day it was written," and you can see why in this production at Theatre Palisades in the Los Angeles area.

As Proctor tries to free his wife and prove all others accused of witchcraft innocent, he finds himself accused as well. Watch as one man stands in a tug-of-war between God and Satan, pride and damnation, good and evil, when The Crucible comes to the stage of the Westchester Playhouse in Los Angeles.

Henry also makes her Queen Regent when he goes off to war. Katherine's marriage to Henry interrupts her ongoing affair with nobleman and soldier Edward Seymour.

When Hamlet holds a skull on stage no one bats an eye, but when your husband comes home with a human skull rolling around his trunk and mumbles nihilistic prose to himself in the dead of night, it's a bit less romantic. This heart-warming dramedy brings to life the man behind Romeo and Juliet through the banter of an old married couple. To be or not to be married to Shakespeare is to know two different men -- the A-lister of Elizabethan London and a lost artist. During a sleepless night, the bard and his Beatrice-esque wife hash out their long-suffering partnership with smart humor, poignant reminiscing and beautiful moments. Don't worry -- your favorite lines from the poet's works make cameos and are given new meaning within the context of his life and relationship. After charming the U.K. with their original play, Bated Breath starts its American tour of Shakespeare, His Wife and the Dog at The Edye at The Broad Stage in Los Angeles.

Known as much for his volcanic temper as for his work in film and on stage, the phrase "difficult actor" could well have been coined for Klaus Kinski, the German star most famed for his mercurial, multi-film collaboration with director Werner Herzog (Aguirre, The Wrath of God, Nosferatu). Kinski died in 1991, but writer-performer Andrew Perez (David Miscavige in My Scientology Movie) brings him back to life in this Ovation-recommended show and 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival Encore Award winner to complete Kinski's magnum opus: a one-man show about Jesus Christ, which was driven off stage by outraged theater-goers. The Second Coming of Klaus Kinski comes to Studio C Artists, coinciding with an exhibit featuring relics, curios, film installations, live conversations and more about the actor.

Little River Band: Aussie Country-Pop at The Rose

Buy Tickets $35 $63

When Little River Band was formed in 1975, it was a major musical event in Australia. All of the members were known nationally, but they hadn't yet broken through internationally. Little River Band was ready to begin the Australian invasion, starting with America. Their first single, "It's a Long Way There," made a huge impact in post-Nixon America and LRB had the big breakthrough they were hoping for. The band went on to enjoy huge hits at home and abroad, like "Help Is On Its Way" and "Reminiscing." Hear these hits and more when the band takes the stage at The Rose in Pasadena.

Like a musical Doogie Howser, Ory Shihor's success as a concert pianist came at an early age. At just 12, while most of his friends in Tel Aviv were still playing tag on the playground, Shihor won a scholarship to come to the United States to study at Juilliard and the Curtis Institute of Music and started racking up prizes from prestigious musical competitions. His career was put on hold in his late teens when he had to return to Israel to serve in the military, but after returning to America in his 20s, Shihor worked odd jobs around New York while practicing by night to completely reinvent his musical style. Now a renowned pianist and educator, Ory Shihor comes to L.A.'s Annenberg Center for the Arts for Last Thoughts: Schubert's Final Trilogy -- a discussion and performance of the last three piano sonatas by Franz Schubert.
