April 7, 2015 -- George Orwell’s “1984” by the Headlong Theatre Company of London will make its U.S. debut as part of the Eli and Edythe Broad Stage’s 2015-16 season, theater officials announced.
Santa Monica College Broad Stage officials last week announced a line-up of international performers included in the theater’s eighth season. And for the first time, the theater will present a series of “pop-up concerts” around Los Angeles that will be streamed live on social media sites, said Natasha Shrieves, spokeswoman for the Broad Stage.
“It’s an exciting year for us,” said Mitchell Heskel, the Broad Stage’s director. “Our 2015-16 season includes a phenomenal line-up of global artists who are at the forefront of artistic excellence and innovation.”
Performances by Grammy winner Rosanne Cash, opera soprano Angela Gheorghiu, singer Aaron Neville, jazz pianist Hiromi, the L.A.-based Calder Quartet, and classical musicans Sir James Galway, Andre Watts and Jonathan Biss also are on tap this season, Shrieves said.
The season’s dance highlights include performances by Shaping Sound, Charles “Lil Buck” Riley, and the return to the Broad Stage of Brooklyn-based choreographer Ronald K. Brown.
