Play
Tony®, Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominee Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek, Macbeth) joins Emmy Award nominee T.R. Knight (Grey's Anatomy, Noises Off) in Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet's loving and laugh-filled look at the state of the arts -- A Life in the Theatre. A behind-the-scenes peek at the challenge of actors battling to share both a dressing room and the spotlight, A Life in the Theatre follows two actors in a repertory company: Robert, an older, experienced performer and John, a newcomer to the stage. John at first welcomes Robert’s guidance, but soon overshadows his mentor. From rehearsals to reprisals, from ego trips to acting tips, the play gives a glimpse into the complex relationship that develops as the torch is passed from one generation to the next - a passing that wavers from love and mutual respect to impatience and resentment.

Review - That Hopey Changey Thing & A Life In The TheatreReview - That Hopey Changey Thing & A Life In The Theatre
by Ben Peltz - November 6, 2010

The only press night offered for the Public LAB's premiere production of playwright/director Richard Nelson's That Hopey Changey Thing was this past Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010 at 7pm.  Given that the play actually takes place on Tuesday. November 2nd, 2010 at 7pm (America's Election Night, for my plethora of foreign readers) I was rather hopey that the text might, in fact, wind up being changey, depending on the news of returns coming in during the play's 90 minutes.  No such luck.  But even in its frozen state, the piece is sharp, engrossing and superbly acted.
