“Tarantino In Concert” was originally staged a little over two years ago in Los Angeles at Rockwell: Table & Stage as the first show in the “For The Record” series which celebrates songs and moments from the body of work by a featured director. A talented troupe of performers that includes a rotating ensemble of Film, Television, Record and Broadway talent come together to present this unique fusion of music, theatre and film that brings motion pictures to life in a concert setting.
The “For The Record” series was created by Shane Scheel and Christopher Lloyd Bratten and “Tarantino In Concert” was specially adapted by Shane Scheel, Christopher Lloyd Bratten and Anderson Davis. “For The Record: Tarantino In Concert” is directed by Anderson Davis, with music direction by Christopher Lloyd Bratten, choreography by Angela Pupello and produced by Shane Scheel and Siobhan O'Neill for Ad Astra Live. Series creator Shane Scheel states, “To watch this idea and show grow over the past couple of years from an intimate concert in front of about forty friends to now performing in front of hundreds of people every week has been an incredible journey.” Scheel continues, “Having Quentin Tarantino come to see ‘For The Record: Tarantino In Concert’ and absolutely love it reaffirmed that what we are presenting is truly something special and unique.”
A master of modern American film, Tarantino has also mastered the art of the movie soundtrack with song choices that have helped define his signature style. This retrospective highlights hit Tarantino directed films including Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Four Rooms, Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2, Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds, and Django Unchained.
The cast includes Von Smith (Fox’s “American Idol,” E! Entertainment’s “Opening Act”), Rogelio Douglas Jr. (Broadway's In The Heights), Jason Paige (Blood Sweat and Tears), Anderson Davis (Broadway's South Pacific), Steve Mazurek (TNT’s “Hawthorne”), Danielle Truitt (Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog”), Lindsey Gort (CBS’s “Vegas”) and Dionne Gipson.
As a series, “For The Record” has been featured on CBS, Fox, ABC, CW, and NBC. Experience what the Los Angeles Times describes as “searingly visceral... the movies sing!” Entertainment Weekly declares as “cutting edge.” Los Angeles Magazine says “Not only has For the Record cemented its position as one of the most entertaining shows in Los Angeles, it also has the distinction of being one of the most daring.” Frontiers Magazine’s Kevin Taft raves “This is truly a must-see this season, and I have to say this was the best theatrical experience I had all year.
