The virtual Sorting Room Sessions, the Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts’ popular nightclub series, concludes on May 21 with “For The Record” showcasing the music and legacy of legendary ’80s “Brat Pack” films on May 21. The program is available on-demand beginning at 7:00 p.m. and includes 48-hour viewing access. With this theatrical concert, For The Record, the genre-bending series that brings classic movie soundtracks to thrilling life on stage, returns to an exact time and place when pop culture in America changed forever. The Brat Pack Reunion Concert combines an entire era of cinematic history, the revolutionary teen films of the 1980s and their hit soundtracks, to create an MTV teen dream – a New Wave, synth-pop journey through the hilarious and heartbreaking world of high school. It follows five teenage archetypes, well known to any lover of The Breakfast Club, through the epic saga of growing up. From sweet sixteen to gym class, detention to prom and finally graduation, The Brat Pack is a group of the most unlikely of friends surviving the carnage of love & friendship, smashing stereotypes along the way. The cast features James Byous (Rebel), Emily Lopez (Basket Case), Parissa Koo (Princess), Patrick Ortiz (Jock), Doug Kreeger (Mister), Kenton Chen (Geek). For The Record, a breakthrough form of live entertainment, turns the soundtracks of iconic films into thrilling immersive theatrical experiences. What began in 2010 on a cabaret stage in East Hollywood, quickly became a “must-see show” in Los Angeles and beyond.
