Built in 1929 by the architect who styled Yosemite's Ahwahnee Hotel, Desmond's Department Store was a glittering anchor for the elegant shops that once lined the Miracle Mile stretch of Wilshire Boulevard. Several innovative performance groups team up for The Performance Zoo with organizers Jacques Heim's Diavolo and Diavolo alums Jones and Anna Maria Talmadge who now head their own company, Not Man Apart. The Performance Zoo offers a site-specific tour of this historic site with dance, music, theater, comedy, circus and other artistic endeavors. The event offers options that in addition to the performances include food, drinks, parking and even a preperformance rooftop dinner for the top ticket price. All proceeds benefit Diavolo's Veterans Project, which has been working with war veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq to Vietnam. The first, deeply impressive result was seen last fall as part of Diavolo's daylong 25th-anniversary celebration. It's a chance to have fun and do good at the same time.
