The Secret City

Buy Tickets


The Secret City is an Obie Award-winning arts organization that presents community celebrations of everyday creative life. Part ceremony, part salon, part show, each gathering has a different theme and an ever-changing roster of artists and performers. In addition to seats in the house, a limited number of seats are available on the Ford stage for this participatory and intimate event that will feature storytelling, a live band, performance, food, meditation, The Secret City Singers and joyful community interaction.

The line up:

Patrice Quinn, fresh off her performance with Kamasi Washington at the Hollywood Bowl last week, will perform.
Actor John C. Reilly will sing an old timey song.
The Cake Divas will provide the delicious Food Offering.
Daniel Passer (Cirque de Soleil clown) will recreate paintings of Passion from the canon.
Actress Saidah Arrika Ekulona will read The Cultural Calendar.
The Secret City Band will be holding it down while The Secret City Singers perform.
And, host Chris Wells will tell a story and lead us on a transformational trip of joy and community.

The theme is passion and the color to wear is red.

This event is part of IGNITE @ the FORD!, a series presented by the Ford Theatre Foundation comprised of world-renowned contemporary artists whose work is thought-provoking and reflects the world in which we live. Supported by Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl.
