LOOK HOMEWARD, ANGEL to Open 11/2 at Secret Rose Theatre
The long-anticipated Los Angeles return of LOOK HOMEWARD, ANGEL, directed by TheProdCo's Co-Artistic Director T L Kolman and featuring a powerhouse cast, opens November 2, 2013 at the Secret Rose Theatre, 11246 Magnolia Boulevard, in the heart of the North Hollywood Arts District.
Based on Thomas Wolfe's autobiographical novel of the same name, Look Homeward, Angel examines the life of a young man growing up in a small town in the mountains of North Carolina during the early part of the 20th century. Brimming with fascinating and colorful characters, the play is funny, engaging, and ultimately poignant as our hero, Eugene, finds his way through love and loss. The original Broadway production opened at the Ethel Barrymore Theater on November 28, 1957 and ran for 564 performances. The play won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1958 as well as the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, and was nominated for multiple 1958 Tony Awards. The play also went on to win the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play and was recently revived in New York to huge acclaim in a production helmed by Austin Pendleton.
The Production Company is honored to announce that the wonderful cast includes Grant Tambellini and AJ Jones as brothers Eugene and Ben, and Alison Blanchard and Geoffrey Wade as the ubiquitous Eliza and W.O. Gant, who are brilliantly supported by Christiane Amorosia, Alex Denney, Marika Engelhardt, Hugh Kinslow, Bill Lewis, Mary Mather, Kelly McCracken, Michelle Simek, and Elizabeth Southard. The play is Assistant Directed by Phil Talsky, with Lighting Design by Matt Richter, Set Design by August Viverito, and the production is Stage Managed by Scott Fleming.
