Ad Astra Live is proud to present the West Coast premiere of a hit New York solo play, PATTI ISSUES, written and performed by Ben Rimalower, directed by Aaron Mark. When Ben Rimalower was eight years old, his father came out of the closet and embarked on a drug-fueled tear that left his family in tatters. Amid the chaos of his young life, Ben found comfort in musical theater, and specifically in the transportive voice of Broadway star Patti LuPone. With a mix of comic irreverence, stark candor and show-biz bravado, PATTI ISSUES poignantly explores the challenges facing LGBT parents and children while shining unique light on gay men's time-old obsessions with divas.
Smart, poignant, and dishy as hell.
A very fierce comedy and a damn fine way to spend an evening.
Seating begins 90 minutes prior to show time.
Guests are encouraged to arrive early and enjoy Rockwell: Table & Stage cuisine and cocktails. There is a two drink minimum and an 18% gratuity added to all checks.
ONLINE ADVANCE TICKETS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED. Tickets (if available) can be purchased at the door one hour prior to show time.
We have transitioned to “choose your seat” ticketing, so parties cannot be combined with one another. We suggest if you are looking to book a large party that you purchase all of the tickets at one time under one name. Otherwise, parties will be seated based on the seat choices made by the patrons when purchasing online.
Valet parking is available behind the restaurant.
