Best Movie Music Revue Los Angeles 2012 

For the Record at Rockwell Table & Stage

Film and music fans can unite for this Los Feliz night out. For the Record at Rockwell Table & Stage is an original movie music revue where contemporary directors (the Coen brothers, Paul Thomas Anderson, John Hughes) are saluted via the best bits of film dialogue and pop music cues from their films. A live band accompanies the talented 40-member company, who have sung and danced their way through these directors' works. A mash-up of Quentin Tarantino's films launched the revue. For the Record: Martin Scorsese is the latest production. So successful is the 2-year-old cabaret, co-created by producer Shane Scheel and musical director Christopher Lloyd Bratten, that it has taken over the entire restaurant and bar, formerly called Vermont. The enthusiasm of the cast, who have cut their chops on Broadway, movies and TV, is infectious. The audience doesn't miss a beat as performers move throughout the room, where raised banquettes and high-top tables ensure good views. No matter how dark the material, there's nothing a little night music can't cure. 1714 N. Vermont Ave., Los Feliz. (323) 661-1550, rockwell-la.com.
