24th Street Theatre re-opens Man Covets Bird in 2016

Run of six additional Sunday matinees kicks off on Valentine’s Day


Man Covets Bird — 24th Street Theatre brings back its critically acclaimed production (Los Angeles Times “Critics Choice,” KCRW‘s “Top 5 of 2015“ list, LA Observed “20 Highlights of LA Theater in 2015” and Bitter Lemons “Best of 2015”) for six Sundays in 2016. Kicking off on Valentines Day at 3 pm, this unique love story for the modern family is an irresistible mix of storytelling, live music and animation that will enchant kids — and deeply touch adults. “Because it’s a liberating thing to talk publicly about things you’re only supposed to think privately.” Theater for all audiences: to be shared by parents and kids ages 7 and up. Scroll down for photos.
