Photo Flash: First Look at Nola Productions' ALL THE KING'S MEN

"Man is conceived in sin and born in corruption... there is always something." These are the words of Willie Stark in Robert Penn Warren's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, All the King's Men. Although it was written in 1946, Warren's story of secrets and the misuse of power extends much deeper than the political arena, and it remains as relevant today as ever. Nola Productions presents this poignant piece, as adapted by Adrian Hall, August 10 - September 15 in the Historic El Portal Theatre's Forum Theatre in North Hollywood. Get a first look at the production in the photos below!

Following the journey of Jack Burden, this journalist and idealist in 1930's Louisiana meets rising political star Willie Stark and quickly becomes his right-hand man. Stark soon becomes one of the state's most powerful and ruthless figures, lifted onto the shoulders of the poor and the neglected – the people who he gave a voice when no one else would – and carried into the Governor's mansion. As Burden becomes entrenched in Stark's career, it also becomes evident that he is lost in his own life, searching for anything or anyone to believe in. Through his eyes, it is revealed that even the best of men have hidden truths, corruption is timeless and power can be used to create or destroy the lives it touches.

All the King's Men marks Nola Productions' debut on the Los Angeles theatre scene; the company presented another Southern classic, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, to enthusiastic audiences in Santa Barbara last summer. Chrzanowski, however, is not new to the likes of theatre in L.A. – he recently directed the wildly popular and critically-acclaimed West Coast premiere of The Spidey Project this past year.
