THE WESTERN UNSCRIPTED, CLASS and More Set for Falcon Theatre's 2014-15 Season
Falcon Theatre Founder, Garry Marshall, is thrilled to announce the Falcon Theatre's 2014-2015 5-Play Subscription Season. Falcon Theatre's 13th subscription season brings five compelling productions to Burbank, including two premiere shows, a performance by George Carlin's daughter Kelly Carlin, and collaborations with the award-winning companies Impro Theatre and Troubadour Theater Company. For the 2014-2015 season, the Falcon has also partnered with the Daily Grill restaurants to give subscribers an added benefit of a discounted local dining experience.
Kicking off the 2014-2015 season, Falcon Theatre brings back the critically-acclaimed Impro Theatre with The Western UnScripted, directed by Stephen Kearin and Dan O'Connor. Using only their wits, Impro Theatre saddles up and rides headlong into the dangerous high chaparral of places like Tombstone and Deadwood to create a new-fangled full-length 100% improvised play in the style of the great film westerns of John Ford and Howard Hawks. Impro Theatre manifests destiny every show!
Next, the Falcon is excited to be producing the world premiere of the new comedy A or B?, written by Emmy-winning writer, director and producer Ken Levine. Sparks start flying when Abby and Ben meet during a job interview for a high-profile marketing job. But are they destined to become lovers or co-workers? Is it possible to be both? A or B? is two romantic comedies in one, turning romance on its head as we see Abby and Ben travel down two parallel lives, pitting destiny vs. choice, love vs. career, ambition vs. passion and man vs. woman.
To celebrate the holiday season, the Ovation Award-winning Troubadour Theater Company returns with The Snow QUEEN, directed by Matt Walker, a hilarious musical reimagining of this classic fable with the music of the mercurial British rock band. Fast-paced, laugh-filled and Commedia Del Arte flavored, We Will Rock You this holiday season, so grab your Somebody To Love and feel the fun of being Under Pressure with the masters of mayhem.
In the New Year, get ready for A Carlin Home Companion, written and performed by Kelly Carlin and directed by acclaimed actor/comedian Paul Provenza. Chronicling over forty years of her life with her father, celebrated writer Kelly Carlin, the only child of iconoclastic comedian George Carlin, deftly weaves her amusing yet poignant family stories with classic video footage of her father's career and family memorabilia, while struggling with their father/daughter relationship and searching for her own place in the world.
Closing the season, the Falcon is proud to present the west coast premiere of Class, written by award-winning playwright Charles Evered, which tells the story of a veteran New York acting teacher who is visited by a mysterious young Hollywood starlet. In the course of their work together, they learn more about themselves than acting - and in doing so change each others' lives forever.
The Falcon Theatre is a 130-seat professional theatre that operates year-round in Burbank, California, built by Director/Writer/Producer Garry Marshall and his daughter Kathleen Marshall LaGambina. The Falcon opened in November of 1997 and launched its annual 5-play Subscription Series in 2002, currently produced by Kathleen and Sherry Greczmiel. Mr. Marshall founded the Falcon as a place where established artists and emerging talent can come together to create exciting work on stage.
