Event Description

The acclaimed new musical about trailblazing Los Angeles entrepreneur and activist John Dolphin gets an all-new production at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. Dolphin made his mark on the national music scene long before Motown ever existed. He opened his Dolphin’s of Hollywood record shop on legendary Central Avenue in 1948, where he launched and helped build the careers of some of the biggest names in music. Dolphin’s of Hollywood became the most famous record store in the country, with legendary DJs like Dick “Huggy Boy” Hugg, Hunter Hancock and Charles Trammel spinning records all night from the front window. The shop and its broadcasts were a gathering place for music lovers from every race and background and became “the place to be” in L.A. in the ‘50s — despite ongoing opposition and harassment from the LAPD under police Chief William H. Parker. A rare blend of R&B, rock and relevance!
