L.A. Theatre Works & The James Bridges Theater Screen THE MAGISTRATE, 2/9

The Magistrate - Filmed live at Great Britain's National Theatre, broadcast by National Theatre Live, and presented by L.A. Theatre Works and the James Bridges Theater: Academy Award nominee and Tony Award-winner John Lithgow (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Shrek, 3rd Rock from the Sun) takes the title role in Arthur Wing Pinero's uproarious Victorian farce, directed by Olivier Award-winner Timothy Sheader. With his dubious air and a developed taste for smoking, gambling, alcohol and women, it's hard to believe Cis Farringdon is only fourteen. And that's because he isn't. Agatha, his mother, dropped five years from her true age-and his-when she married amiable magistrate Posket. When her deception looks set to be revealed, it sparks a series of hilarious indignities and outrageous mishaps. In a similar vein to The National Theatre's smash-hit comedies, She Stoops to Conquer, London Assurance and One Man, Two Guvnors, The Magistrate sis sure to have audiences around the world doubled up with laughter.
