The Filament Theatre Co. presents the L.A. premiere of “second” in Echo Park on Wednesday, May 6 at 8:00 pm.

While “the worst snowstorm in history” rages, a mysterious man touches a woman, seemingly brings her back to life – then disappears. The mystery and media frenzy instigates three sets of New Yorkers to question their faith in radically different ways. “Second” is a choreography of seven actors and three cameras unfolding through separate, concurrent scenes staged in a private home in Echo Park. The audience will be divided amongst three rooms: as one scene plays out live in the room, the other two scenes are captured by live cameras and presented cinematically, allowing each audience a unique experience while still sharing the same story.

“second” takes place at Laveta Villa in Echo Park at 1367 Laveta Terrace

Cost is $20 general admission (all ages)

The show runs through May 29, every Thursday and Saturday, as well on Wednesday, May 19 and May 26.

“Hamlet, Prince of Puddles is an all ages adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic play opening at the Bootleg Theater on April 10 at 11am. All tickets are priced $9.99 and under (kids are only $5) with the hopes that the economy and cost will not prevent families from exploring the wildly imaginative world of live theater.

Hamlet is the Prince of Denmark, but after the untimely death of his kingly father, his mother Gertrude hastily marries his uncle Claudius. When Hamlet learns who is to blame for his father’s death, he struggles to take action and becomes known as the Prince of Puddles! Find out why in this all-ages adaptation of the Bard’s classic.
