Tarantino fans, get ready for the ultimate live inperson tribute experience. Fox Force Five & The Tyranny of Evil Menis an adrenaline-fueled Broadway-style musical combining the most iconic scenes from Quentin Tarantino’s Cinematic Universe with live rock ‘n’ roll renditions of songs from the movies’ soundtracks including Reservoir Dogs, Inglorious Basterds, and Django Unchained.
Tarantino Live – part musical theater/part rock concert staged in a unique venue (Hollywood’s The Bourbon Room) – was created by For the Record’s Shane Scheel and Anderson Davis who have produced an unconventional series of live soundtrack concerts in LA and beyond. I have attended previous shows featuring the scores of Baz Luhrmann, The Coen Brothers, John Hughes et al and they were truly original, unforgettable immersive events.
The show follows the Fox Force Five, a group of fierce female superwomen (popularized by Pulp Fiction) as they join forces to fight the Tyranny of Evil Men against a backdrop of hitmen, gangsters and assassins singing classics like “Son of a Preacher Man,” “Stuck in the Middle With You,” “Bang Bang,” and more. This newest iteration includes hits from the 1960s-era Once Upon a Time in Hollywood so enjoy some “California Dreamin’,” and “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” when the newest villain Charles Manson comes on stage.
