Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and For The Record announce the casting of For The Record: Tarantino  which will now play six performances from July 12-15 in The Sorting Room – The Wallis’ popular nightclub program. 

From Reservoir Dogs to The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino’s iconic style and vintage soundtracks are the gold standard of retro cool.  Due to popular demand, two 9:00 pm shows on Friday and Saturday have just been added. Tickets are now on sale. 

For The Record: Tarantino  is a rock ‘n’ soul concert that brings to life Tarantino’s cinematic universe. It’s a spider web of hitmen, gangsters and assassins slaying vinyl classics like – “Son of a Preacher Man,” “Stuck in the Middle With You,” “Bang Bang” and many more – to create a genre-defying musical tribute to the genre-defining director. 

This incarnation is led by a quintet of superheroines inspired by the powerful women of Tarantino’s dysfunctional family tree. Straight out of Tarantino’s graphic novel, these women battle “The Tyranny of Evil Men” as ‘The Fox Force Five.’ 

Evan Rachel Wood  (“Westworld,” “True Blood”) leads ‘The Fox Force Five’ as ‘The Blonde Fox’ (a mash-up of Pulp Fiction’s ‘Mia Wallace’ and ‘Beatrix Kiddo’ from Kill Bill). She’s joined by Reeve Carney  (Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, “Penny Dreadful”) and Ty Taylor  (Vintage Trouble) as ‘Vincent & Jules’ (of Pulp Fiction). The other ‘Foxes’ will be brought to life by the powerhouse vocals of Dionne Gipson  (Jackie Brown  & ‘Vernita Green’ from Kill Bill: Vol. 1 & 2)Olivia Kuper Harris  (‘Fabienne’ from Pulp Fiction  and ‘Shosanna Dreyfus’ from Inglorious Basterds)Carrie Manolakos  (‘Butterfly’ from Death Proof  and ‘Santanico Pandemo nium’ from From Dusk Till Dawn), and TV Carpio  (‘O-ren Ishii’ from Kill Bill: Vol. 1 & 2). Battling alongside the ‘Foxes’ are dynamos James Byous  (‘Butch Coolidge’ from PulpFiction  and ‘Lt. Ald o Raine’ from Inglourious Basterds), Rogelio Douglas, Jr.  (‘Marsellus Wallace’ from Pulp Fiction, ‘Joe Cabot’ from Reservoir Dogs, and ‘Django’ from Django Unchained) and Patrick Mulvey  (‘Col. Ha ns Landa’ from Inglorious Basterds, ‘Bill’ from Kill Bill: Vol. 1 & 2, & ‘Stuntman Mike’ from Death Proof)

For The Record: Tarantino, directed by Anderson Davis, musical supervision/arrangements by Jesse Vargas, vocal design by Tony nominee AnnMarie Milazzo, lighting design by Michael Berger, sound design by Ben Soldate, costume design by Steve Mazurek, co-produced by Shane Scheel and Siobhan O’Neill.

About For The Record:

Created by Shane Scheel and Anderson Davis, For The Record is an unconventional production that brings the soul of treasured directors’ films front and center: the soundtrack. Staged in intimate venues that immerse the audience in the excitement, carefully-selected songs from movie soundtracks are brought to life. A mix of part rock-concert part theater, For The Record unites characters across a film directors’ cannon into one world. In 2010, the immersive experience began in a 60-seat bar in Hollywood and has featured the works of acclaimed directors Quentin Tarantino, John Hughes, Baz Luhrmann, The Coen Brothers, Paul Thomas Anderson, Martin Scorsese, Robert Zemeckis, and Garry and Penny Marshall. For The Record has performed around the country with shows in Los Angeles, Las Vegas (a three year run with Cirque du Soleil and The Venetian), New York, Chicago, Indianapolis, The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, SXSW in Austin, TX, The Montreal International Jazz Festival and currently makingwaves on Norwegian Cruise Line’s mega-ship, The Escape. For The Record is carving a new place in the market that transcends jukebox musicals and creates a transportive experience making the audience feel like they are twisting in Jack Rabbit Slims, in detention at Shermer High School, or toasting in Gatsby’s Mansion.
