The Neurotic Young Urbanites theatre company recently unveiled a production of a new musical Up the Week Without a Paddle at the Celebration Theatre in Hollywood. With music by Curtis Moore, lyrics by Amanda Green (daughter of the famed Adolph Green), and book by Lauren Cohn and Lauren Bowles (sister of Julia Louis-Dreyfus), Up the Week is set in contemporary, media-saturated Hollywood and deals in irreverent, bawdy fashion with a week in the lives of a group of Gen-X young women. The open-ended run is performed Thurs.-Sat. eves at 8 PM.Directed by John Langs and Patrick Fischler, with musical direction by Kevin Parcher, the show features Michelle Azar, Bowles, Cohn, Jodi Harris, Jenna Macari, Rob Moore, Jamison Newlander and Christoper Shea.
Celebration Theatre is located at 7051 Santa Monica Blvd. For tickets and information call (310) 572-6748.
