Attitude X Three at Heritage Square


Join Heritage Square and Yale Cabaret Hollywood for a live - and lively - reading of the one-act play of “ATTITUDE X THREE”. The one-time-only reading will be Saturday, February 7, beginning at 4 p.m. in the Victorian Parlor of the Perry Mansion, Heritage Square. All proceeds will help fund LA’s unique living history at Heritage Square Museum. General Admission is $10, Free Admission for Heritage Square Members or New Museum Members joining at the $35 level or more. For reservations, call 323-225-2700 ext. 223.

“ATTITUDE X THREE” is a new play by Yale Playwright and Screenwriter Dyanne Asimow. This is a world premier reading especially adapted for the Victorian environment of Heritage Square. The play is directed by Eric Scott Gould and produced by Walt Klappert.
About the play: As the 20th Century dawns… Victoria, an eccentric, aging émigré ballerina… Grace, a young, ambitious danseuse…and Monsieur Serkiev, legendary choreographer, once Victoria’s mentor and lover… join in a picaresque roundelay of longing, loss, and illusion set to the music of time.

YALE CABARET HOLLYWOOD (YCH), founded in 2001 by alumni of the Yale School of Drama, is L.A.'s leading proponent of theatre cabaret from the wildly comic to the boldly visceral. YCH has produced Shakespeare and Brecht as well as world premieres, cabaret revues and short film programs at its Hollywood home, the M Bar nightclub. In addition, YCH continues to workshop new plays and screenplays at various Southland art galleries from the Brewery to Venice. Yale Cabaret Hollywood is honored to present "ATTITUDE X THREE" as a fund-raiser for Heritage Square Museum, a unique living link to L.A.'s historic past.
