Brimmer Street Theatre Company to Bring THE PERFECT GAME to Hollywood Fringe, 6/15 & 22
Brimmer Street Theatre Company has announced The Perfect Game, a special ensemble event for the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival. The game will take place two times only on Sunday, June 15 at 1pm and Sunday, June 22 at 5pm on Cole Field at the Hollywood Recreation Center, 1122 Cole Avenue in Hollywood. Admission to the game is free.
A project ten years in the making and inspired in part by an essay by David Mamet from his book "Three Uses of the Knife," The Perfect Game seeks to blur the line between sport and theatre and to provide an immersive, authentic, nine-inning baseball game - but with no ball. All of the plays are rehearsed, the action is staged, and the outcome predetermined. Spectators are welcome to come and go or stay to watch the whole game and cheer for their favorite team. Hot dogs, popcorn, and other classic baseball game food and drink will be available from local food trucks. On Sunday 6/15, special guest Terence McFarland (LA STAGE Alliance CEO) will pretend to throw out the first pitch, and on Sunday 6/22, Colin Mitchell (Bitter-Lemons.com Editor) will do the same.
The Hollywood Fringe Festival is an annual, open-access, community-derived event celebrating freedom of expression and collaboration in the performing arts community. Each June during the Hollywood Fringe, the arts infiltrate the Hollywood neighborhood: fully equipped theaters, parks, clubs, churches, restaurants and other unexpected places host hundreds of productions by local, national, and international arts companies and independent performers.
The Perfect Game will take place only twice - Sunday, June 15 at 1pm and Sunday, June 22 at 5pm. Admission is free. For more information, visit brimmerstreet.org/perfectgame.
