THE NOHO ARTS CENTER ENSEMBLE (NoHo ACE - formerly OPEN AT THE TOP) was formed in 2004 by theatre veterans James J. Mellon and Kevin Bailey. NOHO ACE is the Center's resident company comprised of actors, directors and writers who passionately fulfill their vision statement, "Theatre for its own sake." In its first season, OPEN AT THE TOP produced 2 World Premiere Musicals, THE GHOST & MRS. MUIR and the West Coast Premiere of the musical DORIAN, both parts of ANGELS IN AMERICA, the Los Angeles Premiere of Seth Greenland's JERUSALEM, and 7 evenings of 24 HOURS OF MADNESS, whereby it produces six fifteen minute plays in 24 hours. Their second season brought the hit musical BARNUM, the critically acclaimed ELIZABETH REX and the World Premiere musical A BOY CALLED LIZARD. The third season, OATT presented the World Premiere of FEED, a play written by Founding Member Jim Lunsford and directed by Artistic Director James J. Mellon as well as presenting the West Coast Premiere of the New York hit musical revue, BUSH IS BAD, THE MUSICAL; directed by Arts Minister Jay Willick and finally closing with a revival of THE COVER OF LIFE. In their first three years, NoHo ACE received 17 Ovation Award nominations; 3 LADCC Award nominations; 2 Garland Awards and 10 Garland nominations; 2 LA WEEKLY Award nominations; 6 ADA Awards and 12 ADA Award nominations. Continuing into their next season, NoHo ACE introduced two World Premiere plays and two World Premiere musicals: in the fall, THE DRAWER BOY graced their stage in its American premiere, November was the joyous month they opened the first fully mounted version of YO HO HO! A PIRATE'S CHRISTMAS, followed by DEPARTURES, a piece written, directed, and acted by NoHo ACE company members, and the premiere of PEST CONTROL, a new musical based on the best selling novel by Bill Fitzhugh. Their fifth season saw an updated version of the hit BUSH IS BAD - ALASKAN BEAUTY QUEEN EDITION, as well as a long-running revival of a newly envisioned erotically charged production of DRACULA, directed by Ken Sawyer. Rounding out the season was the American premiere of EAST OF BERLIN, a provocative story of the Holocaust's legacy and another world premiere musical from the team of James Mellon and Scott DeTurk, INSANITY. 2010 brought SANITY SQUARED, a less crazily-rehearsed version of their popular 24 HOURS OF MADNESS productions, the West Coast premiere of PRAYING SMALL, exploring the crippling results of a life lived under the crushing weight of addiction and the one-person show BECOMING NORMAN, an inspirational sojourn with music about a gay man growing up in a conservative Mormon home in Utah. This season brought the return of past favorites including the soon to be Samuel French published, DEPARTURES and another provocative 24 HOURS OF MADNESS (number Ten). Most recently, they were proud to present the hit, THAT'S AMORE, Gilmore Rizzo's look at his family through the Italian American Songbook.
