Stimulate your senses this summer as everything is growing over at Rockwell: Table & Stage with For The Record: Boogie Nights. The space at 1714 N Vermont Ave no longer operates under three distinct names but instead the entire venue will be referred to as Rockwell: Table & Stage and includes a bi-level outdoor dining space as well as a newly remodeled live music performance space. While renovations will continue throughout the summer, "For The Record" co-creators Shane Scheel and Christopher Lloyd Bratten choose to present a show adapted from the works of multiple Academy Award-nominated Los Angeles director Paul Thomas Andersonfor a summer experience that Angelenos will not easily forget. The show has just been extended through August 11, 2012.
Paul Thomas Anderson is the latest film auteur to get the acclaimed "For the Record" treatment-which brings a director's soundtracks to stunning life in a 360-degree live theatrical concert experience. For patrons coming to see For The Record: Boogie Nights the evening will seem very familiar as many of the films Paul Thomas Anderson has created and directed tell stories about California and Californians.
For The Record: Boogie Nights runs until Saturday, August 11. Weekly performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 9PM. Tickets** range from $30 - $35, for ticket information, call (323) 661-6163 (ext 20) or visit www.fortherecordlive.com.
