Three acts, three centuries, three spaces: Join writer-performer Paul Outlaw as he takes you on a musical journey from post-World War II Los Angeles to the 22nd century and finally to the Antebellum South in his highly original new show, "The Late, Late Show". This uniquely staged production centers around an African-American man born in slavery in 1820 who is then "re-born" as a vampire in 1855, living as a creature of the night for the next 300 years. Along this exciting journey through time, Outlaw and the entire audience will move through three of the Bootleg's spaces in the venue's first-ever environmental (or "promenade") production, with Act I (1947) taking over the main lobby's Bootleg Bar, the main stage acting as the futuristic performance arena of Act II (2157) and Act III (1855) concluding the time-skipping play in the Bootleg's backyard.

Low-priced previews take place May 3-11. Evangeline...a devoted daughter by day, a Hollywood go-go dancer by night. A journey of self discovery by a young Chicana, whose neighborhood roots and make-believe world collide when she experiences the West Side art scene and the music of the Sunset Strip, is set against the 1968 student walkouts in East L.A. and the fight for equal education and civil rights.
