Theatre Company announces
second all-musical season of four large-scale,
Broadway-style musicals at the intimate MET Theatre

LOS ANGELES, CA – January 22, 2013 – DOMA Theatre Company has announced its second
all-musical season for 2013. Audiences will be able to experience four large-cast,
Broadway-style musical productions, including Dreamgirls, Sweet Charity, The Scarlet
Pimpernel and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, in a personal and intimate setting at
Hollywood’s MET Theatre.

Opening the season will be Dreamgirls, the Tony, Drama Desk and Grammy Award winner
with music by Henry Krieger and book by Tom Eyen that began as a smash Broadway
musical, then became an award-winning motion picture. Sizzling with R&B soul,
Dreamgirls captures the spirit and hope of Motown when a black girl group from
Chicago makes it big in a business controlled by white men. The female trio fights
for recognition, fellowship and love as superstardom challenges their musical and
cultural identity. DOMA artistic director Marco Gomez directs a cast of 25. (March 1
through April 7)

Next, Richard Israel directs a revival of Sweet Charity, one of the all-time classics of modern musical
theater. Meet Charity Hope Valentine, dance hall hostess, eternal optimist and
unlucky romantic, as she searches for true love in this Tony award-winning musical
comedy that features show-stopping numbers such as “Big Spender,” “Rhythm of Life”
and “If They Could See Me Now.” Based on Federico Fellini's screenplay for Nights
of Cabiria, Sweet Charity boasts music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Dorothy Fields and
a book by Neil Simon. (May 17 through June 23) 

Summer brings The Scarlet Pimpernel, a high-adventure, Tony-nominated musical based
on the original secret identity hero. Set in 1794 during France’s “reign of terror,”
a seemingly foppish British aristocrat takes on the identity of the mysterious
Pimpernel who outwits French revolutionaries, rescues fellow countrymen and romances
a brave and passionate beauty. A rousing score by Frank Wildhorn (composer of Jekyll
& Hyde) and inspiring lyrics by Nan Knighton drive the message that we all have
heroism lodged deep within. Prepare to be swept away by the wildly emotional story
and swashbuckling action. Directed by Marco Gomez. (August 2 through September 8)

The season closes with the irreverent Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, a comedic Wild
West rock musical about America’s controversial seventh president that is an
audacious mix of historical fact and fiction. Composer Michael Fields and playwright
Alex Timbers examine the attraction and terrors of American Populism by redefining
Andrew Jackson—the man who invented the Democratic Party, drove the Indians west,
and ultimately doubled the size of our nation—as an emo rock star. Named 2010 “Best
Musical of the Year” by both The New York Times and Rolling Stone. (October 18
through November 24)  

A joint venture between Dolf Ramos and Marco Gomez, DOMA Theatre Company staged five
musicals in its first all-musical season in 2012, receiving critical acclaim and
selling out productions of The Who’s Tommy (“Exhilarating!” – Rock Cellar Magazine),
Songs for A New World (“Transformational!” – LA Splash), Jekyll & Hyde:The Musical
(“Pick of the Week” – LA Weekly), Xanadu (“Another standout production” – Working
Author) and Avenue Q (“Critic’s Choice” – Los Angeles Times).

All performances in the 2013 season will take place on Fridays and Saturdays @ 8 pm
and Sundays @ 3 pm at The MET Theatre, 1089 N. Oxford Ave. Los Angeles CA 90029.
Tickets range from $30 - $34.99; seniors and students with ID pay only $20. Secure
parking is available for $5. A four-play season subscription package is available
for $100 and includes preferred seating, free parking, and a complimentary beverage.

On Tuesday, February 5, DOMA will host a Season Announcement Reception at the Arena
Nightclub in Hollywood. The evening will include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and
dessert and will feature select musical performances from each of the four 2013 main
stage season productions. Tickets are $75.
