AN EXTRA CHANCE TO CHECK-IN

With ticket sales hotter than the Great Chicago Fire, the even greater Robey Theatre Company has just announced an extension of their wildly popular, sold-out The Magnificent Dunbar Hotel — but only through Dec. 28, 2014, when it absolutely must close. Considering the logistics of compiling one of the biggest casts on a Los Angeles stage, it’s nothing short of amazing that extra performances materialized. Know that even as you read this, added shows are already selling out, so act fast.

THE MAGNIFICENT DUNBAR HOTEL (Robey Theatre Company at LATC)

Levy Lee Simon’s world premiere four-part docudrama brings us back to L.A.’s luxurious Dunbar Hotel on Central Avenue during the 30s and 40s, a time when Jim Crow laws barred black Americans from lavish hotels. Yet this location became a showplace for The Duke, The Count, Dorothy Dandridge, and Lena Horne, who perform your favorite songs in the show. You will also meet intellectuals debating the politics of the day, and eavesdrop on everyday folk who felt right at home. Click on the thumbnails below to meet some of the characters, but if you want to see them live, remember that this classy, jazzy joint won’t be taking reservations for long.

Hello,
I was wondering if The Magnificent Dunbar Hotel will play in other cities. I tried getting tickets for the Los Angeles location but it was sold out. I also tried to add to the waiting list but that didn’t work. Please keep me posted, I would love to see this play. Thanks Peace and Blessings!
