January 27 – February 19 2017 (Fridays & Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays @ 7 p.m.):  How bout some theatre? 
Future Sex, Inc. – What does the future hold for sex? Blending Lady Gaga-esque popstar theatricality with Blade Runner’s dark comic vision, Future Sex, Inc. (a new version of the earlier production Siamese Sex Show) is the naughty pop musical which takes place in the dystopian future.

The mysterious conglomerate Monocorp fabricates an epidemic condemning intimacy to profit from its “safe” new pseudo-sex product called the Love Light. At an underground “intimacy” speakeasy called “The Siamese Sex Show,” four fallen popstars gather in collusion to plan their revenge against Monocorp’s devious CEO. As the world teeters on the brink of destruction, can these unlikely heroes overcome their differences in time to stop Monocorp’s evil agenda? The musical includes rap lyrics from hip-hop legend Kool Keith, Mistah Fab, and J Diggs. The show humorously explores the importance of connecting and potential loss of intimacy in an increasingly technological world. Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm; Sundays @ 7pm The Lounge Theatre, 6201 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA  90038; Admission: $30; (323) 960-7738; http://www.plays411.com/future
