"Beautifully conceived, confidently executed and wholly accessible work…her finest to date..."
- The New York Times
A new American comedy every bit as poetic as it is honest and revelatory. THIS captures forty-something life at its most vulnerable in a narrative that charms, shocks and resonates.
There is your first adult life full of hope and promise, and then there is your second adult life when an unexpected twist or turn drastically diverts your course. In THIS, five friends navigate unforeseen circumstances without a road map. The cast includes Saffron Burrows (Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Eisa Davis (Welcome to the Rileys), Glenn Fitzgerald (Dirty Sexy Money), Gilles Marini (Brothers & Sisters, Dancing With The Stars) and Darren Pettie (Mad Men).
Fortunately, they have the insights and words of Melissa James Gibson, who imbues every conversation with rhythm and grace. In her hands language flows effortlessly with both amazing levity and profound weight, sometimes contained in a single word as simple as “this.”
Just $20 (Reg. $30) on *all performances of THIS July 30 through August 12!
Call 213.628.2772 and mention code ADULTHOOD or visit www.CenterTheatreGroup.org/Adulthood
*Restrictions apply. Excludes August 7.

Im finished with this show!!
Are you kidding me? Kirstie goes further than Chelsea? She stayed longer than a lot of people that were sent home. and yes, I voted.. but when the judges votes count just as much as the public , and they are giviing 9's and 10's when they should be judging the dance. fairly...then it keeps her there. This show has lost its credibility!! Chelsea's dances were more difficult and she is so much better than Kirstie. If I were Kirstie I would be embarrassed and think its a sympathy vote!!

Is there ANY gay man in the world, whose Gaydar does not go off, when Mark Ballas dances? The dude just needs to come out of the closet, and quit trying to hide behind every woman he dances with.

I have to say, Chelsea out-danced Hines and Kirstie last night, I don't know how their scores are so close to hers.
Hines can move his feet really well, but he doesn't look like a dancer when his arm is just doing nothing and he's also got that same look on his face every time.
Kirstie, though a good dancer for being more than twice as old as others, she is not the best dancer. At all. I think she's funny, she's just good (not great), but is certainly not the best.
That's why I used my votes for Chelsea & Mark. I hope she wins, but with the judges favoring Hines, he will probably win.

liked the shows and instant dances
I liked Dancing With The Stars and the instant dances. I thought Hines, Chelsea, Ralph, and Romeo all did a good job. But congrats to Kirstie for scoring her first 10 for the Argentine Tango!!! She was great!! I thought Kirstie's instant dance salsa was good. Again, she may not be the youngest contestant this season, but Kirstie danced the salsa the best way she could. I could tell Ralph was in pain from his injury. Despite Ralph's injury, he went ahead and danced instead of giving in to his pain. Ralph kept a good attitiude and didn't give in to the pain that he has from his injury.
I've voted for Kirstie since week 1. I just hope she makes it to the finals and wins.
What was with tonight's show and the guest judge? I thought all of the couples did a good job. Kirstie did a good job on her jive. So what if she can't do the leg kicks that are involved with the jive. Kirstie got out there and danced. She should've deserved higher scores than just one 9. What is it with the regular judges when there is guest judge? It seems like the regular judges get all nit picky and just criticize instead of giving out compliments. I just hope that Kirstie can bring her scores up to make it to the finals.

How do the producers of this show decide who gets paired with who as dsncing couples? Certain pros seem to get celebrities with some talent for dancing almost all the time and others get those needing the most help quite frequently. Does height, age, or even personality have anything to do with the choices or is it random pairings? I can't believe there is anything random about it!

Chris Brown performing or not?
Please do not allow Chris Brown to perform on DWTS next Tuesday, March 29, 2011!!!!! He has clearly NOT learned a thing from his anger management classes or he wouldn't have thrown yet another temper tantrum!!! I've been physically abused by someone I cared for and two years is nothing as far as trying to get over something so severe and so hurtful! DWTS is a family-oriented show and should not promote physical abuse by allowing this MAN, not KID, to perform and act like everything is okay. I had decided not to watch Tuesday night's episode BEFORE he threw his fit on GMA. Now, I definitely WILL NOT be watching on Tuesday night if he is performing and I've been talking to many of my friends on Facebook, twitter, etc. and they all feel the same! ABC, DWTS please listen to your viewers! There has to be someone else you can book for that night to perform two acts, just not CHRIS BROWN!!! Once he has truly learned his lesson, realistically passed his anger management classes, and stays out of trouble, then by all means put him on your show. He is a really talented performer but as GMA has proven, is no where near ready to perform on a family-based show! DWTS teaches so much more than just dancing and if Chris Brown is allowed to perform, especially after doing what he did on GMA, which by the way could have really hurt someone, I'm afraid you will be sending the wrong message to all the young viewers out there watching and I KNOW YOU WILL BE SENDING THE WRONG MESSAGE TO WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN PHYSICALLY ABUSED, SUCH AS MYSELF!! Thank you for listening and for your consideration!

New Hostess please!!!
Please, please, please replace Brooke Burke as a Hostess. It was painful to listen to her interactions with the pros and stars. She would consistently ask the same questions, such as "how proud were you, how surprised were you?" leaving the stars and pros stranded to carry on a better dialog for the viewers, AFTER they had just exhausted themselves with their dance routine.

Give credit to Mark
Mark took a someone who has no experience at acting or dancing and is still quite young and taught her to dance very well. He deserve the trophy as well as anyone. Not to many of the other male professional dancers would have had the patience to work with someone that green. Example Kate plus 8 male instructor last season. I don't understand how people get so upset the show is about how taking someone who knows nothing and making someting of them. More often than not the stars have stage presence from acting and many have dancing and performing experience. I feel really bad for Bristol she has none of any of that and has really done fantastic. She has continued to have to listen to the negative publicity. After all this is only a tv show its for enjoyment. Mark has done a fantastic job

brandie & max
You voted off the wrong couple last week you should have voted Jen & Derek because of all her wineing about her aches and pains or maybe it was just smpathy act. Don't know if I'll watch tonight because it makes me furious to think that the votes are fixed. But if I do vote it won't be Derek & Jen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rumors of same sex dancing partners....
I hope it's not true. This has been a nice family program to watch. If this changes, it will really change the show and not for the better. This is not the venue for this.
It's not something I want my kids to watch nor is it how they were raised.
Leave the program the way it is..

A final joke
There is only one good dancer left out of the three. The others that deserve to be there have been already voted off. I still can not believe that Brandy got voted off....! Like Bristol and Kyle can dance as well as she does. Very frustrating.......
