Dinner @Carousel restaurant followed by "Cyrano" at The Fountain Theater

Overview: At 6 pm we will have dinner at the Carousel Restaurant in Los Angeles at 5112 Hollywood Blvd and then at 8 pm we will see a Modern day re-imagined signed/spoken version of the classic “Cyrano de Bergerac,” performed in American Sign Language and spoken English at The Fountain Theater located close by (.5 miles) at 5060 Fountain Avenue, Los Angeles.

Please add "tickets purchased" to your RSVP when you have your ticket so I know you're definitely attending. Also, please remember to answer the "are you coming to dinner?" question when you RSVP so I have accurate numbers for the restaurant :-)  Thanks!

Important: Those not attending dinner should look for the group at 7:45pm in the theater lobby; however, this can be tricky with the entire audience rushing around to get tickets and seats. So please note that the group will also gather in the lobby after the play, to (a) ensure that everyone has a chance to be introduced to other group members, and (b) decide whether to go somewhere for coffee and post-play discussion :-)

The restaurant: 6 pm at Carousel Restaurant located at 5112 Hollywood Blvd in Los Angeles.  The reservation is in my name (John Bolin). Please ask for my table. You can find the menu at

There is limited parking in the small lot in this strip mall.

The play: At 8 pm we will see "Cyrano" at the The Fountain Theater at 5060 Fountain Avenue in Los Angeles.

"Cyrano" is a modern day re-imagined signed/spoken version of the classic “Cyrano de Bergerac,” performed in American Sign Language and spoken English. Cyrano is a brilliant deaf poet hopelessly in love with a beautiful hearing woman, Roxy. But she doesn't understand sign language and instead loves his hearing brother, Chris. Can Cyrano express his love for Roxy with his hands? Or must he teach Chris to “speak his words” for him, to woo her? ASL becomes the language of love in this modern sign language spin on a classic love story.

"Cyrano" is performed simultaneously in spoken English and American Sign Language. Fully accessible to all audiences, hearing and deaf."

Tickets: Tickets are available for $34.00 (ticket & service fee) at:

www.fountaintheatre.com

or by calling the box office at [masked]-1525.

All seating is assigned.  If you wish to sit with the group you will need to communicate that you are attending as a member of "Small Theater Enthusiasts of Los Angeles".  I purchased my ticket online and typed in "Small Theater Enthusiast of Los Angeles" after my name on the form. The theater will then seat us together.

Parking: There is secure on site parking for $5.  There is also street parking (be sure to read the parking restriction times).

Public Transportation: The Red Line Vermont/Sunset Station is .6 miles from the theater and the Hollywood/Western Station .4 miles from the restaurant.

    I missed the dinner but the play was wonderful. Great treatment of a classic with an extremely modern twist. I have an appreciation for the actors and the education I received on signing and the hearing impaired.

    Well staged and acted adaptation of this classic to include ASL and the hearing impaired and deaf audience. Very enjoyable.

    Sorry about the no-show. Totally forgot because I saw the play opening weekend with a comp (I know the ASM). Enjoy the play.
