'For the Record: Tarantino': The Music Is One Of The Characters

Posted: Updated:

When you think of Quentin Tarantino, you normally think of severed ears or 'The Gimp", not musicals. But a new stage show uses music from QT's movies and recreates some of his most memorable scenes in "For the Record: Tarantino in Concert".

Rumer Willis, whose dad starred in "Pulp Fiction", Tracie Thoms, who co-starred in "Death Proof", and Ginifer King were in Tuesday to talk about the show, which opens this Thursday and runs through May at the DBA in West Hollywood. 

Fun Facts About "For the Record: Tarantino":(Source: Facebook)

1) The FOR THE RECORD series breaths a new kind of life into the movies by adapting the works of great directors to a live setting. It's a unique form of live entertainment which immerses its audiences in the worlds of cinema and music. The series features LA's leading talent - stars from stage, record and screen as well as new, rising performers - embodying iconic movie characters and giving them new voices.

2) The idea of the FOR THE RECORD series was born out of desire to tap into the pulse of Hollywood while simultaneously developing a new style of entertainment which would have a universal appeal.

3) Creative partners Shane Scheel and Christopher Lloyd Bratten drew from their combined experience in music, production, theatre and live entertainment to conceive a series which would pay homage to great directors. The twist, however, was to turn each their films on its head and tell the stories through their soundtracks. We've all had the experience of watching a movie and being so thrilled or moved by a song playing under a memorable scene.

‘For The Record: Tarantino In Concert' opens this Thursday, March 27th. It will run every Thursday through Sunday from now through may at the DBA Theater in West Hollywood.
