Caught. Long thought to have been in- spired by the infamously eccentric Hughes, the movie is a commentary on capitalism and follows a poor carhop-turned-model (Barbara Bel Geddes), who’s caught in a love triangle between a rich but cruel and emotionally distant millionaire (Robert Ryan) and an earnest pediatrician (James Mason). LACMA, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Mid-Wilshire; Thu., Nov. 29, 7:30 p.m.; free, RSVP required. (323) 857-6010, lacma.org. —Siran BaBayan

He’s Shot It All
Fahey/Klein Gallery has a special knack for presenting compelling work by renowned editorial and fashion photographers, cull- ing exhibitions from both their marquee careers and personal explorations. For example, Mark Seliger’s decades of iconic portraiture has elevated the game from Rolling Stone to Vanity Fair, GQ, Elle and Vogue in depictions of titans in music,
art, fashion, business and politics: Johnny Cash, Barack Obama, Laurie Anderson, Muhammad Ali, Bob Dylan, Matthew Bar- ney, Cindy Sherman and the Dalai Lama. The classically cool style of Seliger’s black- and-white photographs and the sophisti- cated, refined color palette of his glossies capture both the persona and the per- sonality of his subjects. His newest book,
which features an interview conducted by Judd Apatow, accompanies the exhibition, and there’s a gallery talk and book signing with KCRW’s Jason Bentley on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2-4 p.m. Fahey/Klein Gallery, 148 N. La Brea Blvd., Hancock Park; opening reception: Fri., Nov. 29, 7-9 p.m.; exhibit: Tue.-Sat., 10 a.m.-6 p.m., thru Jan. 19; free. (323) 934-2250, faheykleingallery.com. —SHana nyS DamBrOT

TraumaandMemory
A girl named Bibi (portrayed by soprano Anna Schubert) who suffers from a peculiar illness and her mother, Lumee (mezzo-soprano Rebecca Jo Loeb), are shuttered away from the world in a mys- terious place called Sanctuary, in librettist Roxie Perkins and composer Ellen Reid’s Prism, which receives its world premiere at REDCAT. Co-presented by L.A. Opera’s Off Grand series and Beth Morrison Proj- ects, the psychological piece of operatic theater centers on themes of identity, trauma and violence against women as Bibi becomes “blinded by colors and by memories new and familiar” as she tries to balance Lumee’s worldview with her own search for truth. REDCAT, 631 W. Second St., downtown; Thu.-Sat., Nov. 29-Dec. 1, 8 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 2, 2 p.m.; $69. (213) 972- 8001, laopera.org. —FallinG JamES
