New Court Theatre Opens LOOK BACK IN ANGER Tonight
This February, join the LA New Court Theatre as we experience John Osborne's Look Back in Anger directed by Rhonda Kohl. This classic piece is strongly influenced by the playwright's unhappy marriage to actress Pamela Lee and gives the audience a glimpse into his life. Look Back in Anger, a monster of a masterpiece, is considered to be the literature that gave birth to the "angry young man plays." As Producer Ashley Partington says, "On paper, the emotions John Osborne puts his character through are palpable. Live, it's almost unbearable to watch - but the audience won't be able to look away."
Guest director Rhonda Kohl, a native of North Dakota is an adjunct professor at Azusa Pacific University where she recently directed and Choreographed Hello Dolly!. She has been a member of the Actor's Co-op since 2010 where Rhonda serves on the Production Committee (selecting plays for each season) and recently produced the acclaimed Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. With the co-op she has directed A Tuna Christmas, Spinning into Butter and Barefoot In The Park. In addition to her personal performance and production work, she founded and runs a non-profit organization for young artists called "Hollywood Youth Theatre" in Burbank. LANCT is thrilled to have her aboard for Look Back In Anger.
This production features Clay Bunker, Carrie Schroeder, Jeremy Browne, Alisha Soper, and Greg Martin. Performances of Look Back in Anger will be held at the Attic Theatre at 5429 W. Washington Blvd, Los Angeles, 90016. It opens tonight, Feb 21 and runs through March 2 with Friday and Saturday performances at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday performances at 5:00 p.m..
