Two rare plays by Tennessee Williams, two sides of town — one price
Use promo code 2XTENN to see both plays for $40
LOS ANGELES (REVISED July 18, 2016) — This summer, Angelinos will have a unique opportunity to sample two rare Tennessee Williams plays helmed by two distinguished directors at two of L.A.’s premier intimate theaters.
Opening July 15 as a guest production at West L.A.’s Odyssey Theatre, Michael Arabian, (most recently recognized for his multiple award-winning production of Waiting for Godot at the Mark Taper Forum), directs Kingdom of Earth. Williams’ most deeply felt emotions are fully realized in this savage, sexually-charged and brutally funny story about three outcasts trapped in an isolated, once elegant Mississippi farmhouse by an encroaching flood.
Opening July 29 at East Hollywood’s Fountain Theatre, Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Lifetime Achievement in Directing Award recipient Simon Levy heads up the West Coast premiere of the Pierre Laville/Emily Mann adaptation of Baby Doll. Darkly comic and crackling with sexual tension, this enthralling tale of prejudice, sexual politics and passion is the first-ever Williams Estate-approved stage adaptation of the controversial 1956 Tennessee Williams screenplay.
Williams aficionados who want to see both can take advantage of a special offer and purchase tickets to both plays for the single price of $40 using promo code 2XTENN.
