L.A. prize sponsor: D Is for Dog


We are five hot little days away from our Los Angeles return, hosted by Kid Quizmaster Daniel Halden. We've already told you about some of the scintillating prizes: $200 cash for the champions, tix to the immortal Laugh Factory, and prime seats to watch the bone-crunching roller-action of the L.A. Derby Dolls. And now, some high-class cultcha—some theater.


Who woulda thought there were actors in Los Angeles? Yes, there are a whole bunch; enough to sustain an annual Hollywood Fringe Festival, which includes this gem from very special sponsors Rogue Artists Ensemble: D Is for Dog. After a hugely successful run in 2011—an Ovation Award for Best Puppetry (puppets!), plus various critical plaudits ("GO!" screams LA Weekly)—the show is back at the Hudson Mainstage Theater. The official description:


"In the seemingly innocent home of the Rogers family, life is like a 1950s sitcom—or is it? All is not as perfect as it seems. Mr. and Mrs. Rogers and their two darling children, Dick and Jane, must face their history and identity before it is too late, with only mysterious phone calls and a forbidden book as clues. D Is for Dog explores the themes of family loyalty and compassion using iconic imagery from 1950s television blended with startling elements of horror and science fiction. Mixing puppetry, live actors, original music and video projection, the play takes audiences from the absurd to the terrifying, and everywhere in between."


Nice. The play runs as part of the Fringe through the end of the month, then continues on its own through August 4, Thursdays through Saturdays. The trailer right here:
