The new musical Recorded in Hollywood returns from its sold-out, critically acclaimed, 2015 engagement, with additional songs and scenes in an all-new production. This L.A. Times Critic's pick tells the true and fascinating love, life, and times of 1950's Los Angeles entrepreneur and activist John Dolphin—the trailblazing black businessman who made his mark on the national music scene long before Motown ever existed. 

Recorded in Hollywood features 16 new songs as well as hits from the Rhythm and Blues and early Rock and Roll era.
