Masked, which played six months Off-Broadway this season, will receive an industry presentation in Los Angeles on Monday, March 10.

Masked has been performed continuously across Israel and has been mounted in over 100 productions worldwide," describe press notes.
The Los Angeles presentation is directed by Matt August (16 Wounded; Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas) and stars Sam Golzari (American Dreamz), Sam Younis (24, The New American) and Elijah Alexander (Summerland, JAG, Mr. & Mrs. Smith).
The New York producers hope to find west coast producing partners for a theatrical run. Film rights are also available.
