There’s a hint of scandal in the air! Take a romp with our talented ensemble cast as they use your audience suggestions to tell a story from three different perspectives.
Inspired by “Rashomon”, the 1950 Jidaigeki psychological film directed by Akira Kurosawa, Company of Angels brings you and your family a diverse and inclusive long-form improv comedy show that will keep you on the edge of your seats. Performed in the styles of notable BIPOC playwrights, David Henry Hwang, Luis Alfaro and Lorraine Hansberry, the show amplifies the BIPOC point-of-view through comedy storytelling and shares the rich, diverse landscape of American theater. There are no scripts in this interactive show and we invite you to come back again and again for a brand new experience every time!

ABOUTCOMPANY OF ANGELS: Founded in 1959 by a group of television and film actors that included Richard Chamberlain, Leonard Nimoy, and Vic Morrow, Company of Angels is now the oldest professional theater in Los Angeles. As such it has a revised mission to provide a space for the voices and audiences neglected by the major regional theaters. Company of Angels now produces original work by professional theater artists who reflect the communities that make up the City of Los Angeles and engages residents from low-income communities including Boyle Heights and Skid Row to develop original theater pieces for performance. In this way CoA re-envisions theater to reflect and respond to the richness, diversity, and complexity that is Los Angeles, entertaining new audiences and serving the City of Angels. Since 1959 Company of Angels productions garnered over thirty Los Angeles Drama-Logue Awards including a special award for Continued Excellence, nine Back Stage West Garland Awards, eight Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards (three nominations) including a special award for Distinguished Achievement, six LA Weekly Theatre Awards (three nominations), six NAACP Theatre Awards (four nominations), five Dimension Robby Awards nominations and seven Broadway World Los Angeles nominations. The Company aspires to share and give voice to the many stories that exist in our communities. For more information visit www.companyofangels.org (2021)
