"If the subject matter doesn't shock you, go for the wonderful acting…"

"Alicia Adams...provides the gravitas that makes everything else in the play possible."

"Playwright Mac Rogers has an ear for the worlds he's trafficking in and as bizarre
as the premise seems you're willing to go along for the ride. The world we find
ourselves in isn't that distant - especially in LA."

"Darin Anthony successful directs a flowing journey that helps us
navigate the treacherous waters of Viral."

"Alicia Adams is truly wonderful, infusing her character with power and
resolve while adding the believability we need to be able to digest the story.
This play is worth seeing for Adams alone..."

"Anthony's production toys with the style of a David Mamet–like comedy,
such as American Buffalo and Glengarry Glen Ross — a portrait of inept desperados
trying to live the American Dream. That the Dream is here dependent on a vicarious
pycho-sexual-social obsession with death is both cynical and pointed." "...Adams'
magnetic performance of wry intelligence and droll expression..."
 - Steven Leigh Morris, LA Weekly

Marga Gomez's LOVEBIRDS

 2 NIGHTS ONLY - Friday & Saturday, Feb 13 & 14

Written & Performed by Marga Gomez
Originally Directed by David Schweizer
All Photo Credit: Patti Meyer
Ages 16 and Up
Lovebirds premiered in June 2014 at La Mama Theater, New York City

In her tenth solo play, GLAAD award winning comic performer Marga Gomez portrays a crew of incurable romantics as they chase their passions – into the night, through decades, and to absurd lengths. Orestes, a macho maitre d' is infatuated with a tin eared singer married to an academic who never sleeps and is never awake. On the other side of town Orestes's daughter cuts off her hair, joins a coven, and starts dating the captain of a women's football team. Weaving through the action is Polaroid Phillie, an ageless LSD fueled nightclub photographer and fixture at gay bars, Spanish restaurants, street corners and wherever sparks fly.

“Hilariously etched characters in an intricate web of love, longing and life.
It’s fast. It’s fun. It’s thought – provoking.” San Francisco Chronicle

"Gomez bucks the solo show trend by straying (mostly) from
the autobiographical, which was a welcome and refreshing
change. Gomez also excelled at delineating and capturing her
distinctive characters" East Bay Express

“Exquisite!” San Francisco Examiner

Pentacle presents HOME GROWN @ Bootleg

Featuring Antics & Multiplex


Friends of Bootleg

The Temptation of St Antony is an immersive junkyard opera staged in a secret location in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. An international ensemble of twelve actor/musicians will lead audiences on a hallucinatory journey of music and visual theatre, scored from Gustave Flaubert’s unstageable play.

St. Antony has shut himself high up in the inner mountain with only his sacred texts for company. In this 'dark night of the soul', mythic phantasms leap out of the pages to challenge his fixed understanding of God and the universe.

Tickets for this intimate event are selling fast! Don't miss out!
