LaBute's 'Some Girl(s)' Opens Feb.6 at Geffen Playhouse
Mark Feuerstein, an actor who has made a name for himself by playing irresistibly charming characters on screens both big (In Her Shoes, What Women Want) and small ("West Wing," "Good Morning, Miami"), takes on a bit of an edge as the lead role in Neil LaBute's Some Girl(s) in the Audrey Skirball Theater at the Geffen Playhouse, opening this February. Feuerstein stars as the ambiguous romantic lead Guy, a character who is traveling between non-descript hotel rooms in various cities meeting with the women of his past and searching for
Putting the "girls" in Some Girl(s) is a group of actresses whose backgrounds and talents are as diverse and vast as Guy's love life. Seasoned actress Rosalind Chao ("Star Trek: The Next Generation," The Joy Luck Club) has some unfinished business to clear up as Lindsay, the savvy yet scarred older woman. Stage veteran Paula Cale Lisbe, best know for her television role as Joanie Hansen in NBC's "Providence," stars as Sam, the high-school girlfriend who didn't quite make it to prom night. "Six Feet Under" star Justina Machado plays Tyler, the too-cool fling that won't quite get flung; and taking on the role of Bobbi, a California sweetheart who got ditched for Chicago, is Geffen-alum (Fat Pig) and television talent Jaime Ray Newman.
Some Girl(s) opens in the Audrey Skirball Theater at the Geffen Playhouse on February 6, 2008.
