The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
The L.A. Theatre Company and the Centre Theatre group presents Juan and John at the Kirk Douglas Theatre.
The Watts Towers Project was a high point of Solomania! at the Douglas in 2006. Smith returns with an equally powerful and poetic work based on the true story of baseball legends Juan Marichal and John Roseboro and the infamous 1965 day when Marichal turned and hit Roseboro in the head with his bat. Smith witnessed the event on television and passionately presents it as part of a greater story that encompasses the Watts riots, Catholicism, the notions of marriage,family and, ultimately, redemption and forgiveness.
14 performances only!
Tickets are $25.
The Kirk Douglas Theatre is at 9820 Washington Blvd.
