World Premiere of A TRANSPARENT MUSICAL, 1776 National Tour & More Announced for Center Theatre Group 2022-2023 Season

The season will also feature the west coast premiere of Clyde’s and more!

Programming has been announced for the 2022/2023 season at the Ahmanson Theatre and Mark Taper Forum. Additional programming at the Ahmanson and Kirk Douglas Theatre will be announced later this summer.

"As we emerge from the pandemic and continue the leadership search to replace Artistic Director Michael Ritchie who retired at the end of 2021, I am proud of our artistic team and the bold collection of new work and modern classics we have assembled for the upcoming season," said Pressman. "It is an impressive slate of powerful, poignant, funny and endlessly entertaining works that are both timeless and timely."

Center Theatre Group's five associate artistic directors stated, "This is a landmark season for the Mark Taper Forum. Never, in our 55-year history, has CTG presented a Taper season written exclusively by artists that are woman-identifying, transgender or non-binary. We were specifically challenged and emboldened by artists, friends and audiences to address the longstanding predominance of male writers on our stages. The result is a collection of premieres and reimagined masterworks that speak to this extraordinary moment in time, all created by some of the most inspired and inspiring artists working today.

"Jane Wagner's biting exploration of the human condition, 'The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe' was already the stuff of legend but it is only made more poignant by Jane's evolving script and in light of the renewed attack on reproductive rights. The West Coast premiere of 'Clyde's' by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage delves into the lives of kitchen workers who've been discarded by society to remind us of the restorative power of dreams. Anna Deavere Smith's incendiary 'Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992' continues to illuminate the uneasy balance of our Southern California community as we approach the 30th anniversary of its original world premiere at the Taper. A world-premiere musical based on Joey Soloway's groundbreaking Amazon series, 'A Transparent Musical' leads us on a journey of self-discovery towards a more colorful spectrum of being and a truer version of oneself while another world premiere, the comedy 'Fake It Until You Make It' by L.A.-based Native American playwright Larissa Fasthorse examines how people define themselves."

The artistic team continued, "We are thrilled to share these productions with Los Angeles. Each play in our season was curated to entertain and enlighten, and together they form an invitation to a collective civic dialogue. No five plays can capture all the richness of Southern California, but the shows in this upcoming Taper season, joined with the upcoming seasons at the Ahmanson and Douglas, will contribute to an ongoing conversation in all our venues over many seasons to come."

"We have another exciting slate of plays and musicals coming to the Ahmanson, some we can announce now and others that will be released in the coming weeks," said Center Theatre Group Producing Director Douglas C. Baker. "'Ain't Too Proud' was a smash hit here at the Ahmanson in 2018 on its way to Broadway. It returns to Center Theatre Group with a Tony Award® to go along with the Grammy®-winning music by The Temptations."

"In a way, we are also welcoming back 'A Soldier's Play.' Before its Academy Award-nominated film adaptation in 1984 and its long-awaited Broadway debut in 2020, Charles Fuller's Pulitzer-winning play opened the Mark Taper Forum's 16th season in 1982. Now, the Roundabout's Tony Award-winning revival directed by Kenny Leon comes to the Ahmanson starring Norm Lewis.

"We'd originally planned to be a part of the pre-Broadway journey of Jeffrey L. Page and Diane Paulus' exhilarating new production of '1776,'" Baker continued. "The pandemic delayed our run, but like our nation's founders we were undeterred. We will be a part of a select national tour after what promises to be a blockbuster Broadway opening.

"And we looked across the pond to find the supernatural thriller and West End phenomenon, '2:22 - A Ghost Story.' I am delighted to produce the U.S. premiere of this riveting production that will keep Los Angeles audiences on the edge of their seats."

Tickets to the Taper productions are now on sale by subscription only. Additional 2022 - 2023 offerings at the Ahmanson and Douglas will be announced in the coming weeks when subscriptions for those theatres will be available.

The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe

By Jane Wagner
Directed by Leigh Silverman
Presented in Association with The Shed
September 21 - October 23, 2022
Opens September 28

Center Theatre Group's 2022 - 2023 Season at the Mark Taper Forum opens with Jane Wagner's "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe" with "Saturday Night Live" star Cecily Strong. Directed by Leigh Silverman and presented in association with The Shed, "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe" begins previews September 21, opens September 28 and runs through October 23, 2022.

Interweaving the seemingly disparate lives of a punk-rock rebel, a socialite, a feminist and a deceptively insightful observer, among many others, the Drama Desk-winning Unique Theatrical Experience "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe" earned Lily Tomlin a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play. Now Emmy®-nominated actress Cecily Strong slides through the tour-du-force roles created by the Peabody and Emmy award-winning writer Jane Wagner who is reimagining the legendary one-person play for 2022. This new production was originally produced by The Shed in New York, NY in 2021.

"I have long been fascinated by the mystical implications of quantum theory," said Wagner. "In truth, my dream was to get the audience to experience the universality of the deep interconnectedness of all living things - with Trudy as the guide... I wanted us to flash on just that thought - that were all connected."

Jane Wagner has won numerous awards, including two Peabodys, four Emmys and a Writer's Guild Award for her work in television as well as the seldom-given New York Drama Critics' Circle Special Award for her Broadway success, "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe." Wagner made her writing debut with the acclaimed CBS teleplay entitled "J.T." (1969) and her book of the same title. In 1971, Wagner began working with Lily Tomlin on an Edith Ann album, "Edith Ann: And That's the Truth" (1972). Wagner's later credits include two more Grammy-nominated albums, "Modern Scream" (1975) and "On Stage" (1978), which she also produced, eight Lily Tomlin television specials (1973 - 82), three Edith Ann animated specials (1994 - 96), and Edith Ann's book, "My Life, So Far" (1994). In 1977, Wagner wrote and directed "Appearing Nitely" for Broadway and also wrote the screenplay for "The Incredible Shrinking Woman." In 1985, Wagner brought "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe" to Broadway where it became an acclaimed play of the Broadway season. The hardcover edition of "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe" became the first play in 20 years to appear on The New York Times Best-Seller list. In 2019, Lincoln Center honored Wagner and Tomlin with a retrospective of their careers, "Two Free Women." In 2020, Wagner was honored with the prestigious Lambda Literary Visionary Award for her innovative work.

Cecily Strong is best known for her work as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live," where she recently completed her 10th season. Strong received back-to-back Emmy nominations in 2020 and 2021 for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on "SNL." Strong also stars in and produces the hit musical series, "Schmigadoon!," which will return for its second season on Apple TV+. Her memoir, "This Will All Be Over Soon," was released in the summer of 2021. In Chicago, Strong improvised regularly at the iO Theater and served as an understudy for the Second City Main Stage and E.T.C. shows. She performed as a member of the Second City national touring company and has also appeared at the Chicago SketchFest, Chicago Just for Laughs, the New York Sketch Fest and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Strong has appeared in the films "The Female Brain" and Paul Feig's reboot of "Ghostbusters," as well as Melissa McCarthy's "The Boss," "The Bronze" and "The Meddler." Additionally, Strong headlined the 2015 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Strong has a B.F.A. in theatre from the California Institute of the Arts

In naming it the best new play of 2021, Terry Teachout of The Wall Street Journal called "Clyde's," "A serious comedy, at once raucously funny and deeply moving," adding, "crisp and concise (100 minutes, no intermission), it is without flaw." The New York Times' Jesse Green dubbed "Clyde's" an "empowerment allegory in the guise of a workplace comedy, in which Nottage and the director Kate Whoriskey shrewdly offered a laugh riot with real meat on its bones."

Lynn Nottage, whose previous works at the Taper include "Intimate Apparel" (2004) and "Sweat" (2018), said, "I'm truly happy to be back at Center Theatre Group with 'Clyde's,' which is a play about creativity, mindfulness, community and the healing power of delicious food."

Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992

Conceived, Written and Revised by Anna Deavere Smith
March 8 - April 9, 2023
Opens March 15

Three decades after its 1993 world premiere at the Mark Taper Forum, Anna Deavere Smith's "Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992" returns to L.A. from March 8 through April 9, 2023. Opening night is March 15.

"Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992" draws on more than 300 interviews with politicians, activists, police, jurors, shopkeepers and countless other Los Angelenos to explore the uprising sparked by the acquittal of the men charged in the Rodney King police brutality case. A powerful piece of living record and one of the most important works in the history of the Taper, "Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992" is a stunning and seminal play that delves into the long-simmering tensions that set the stage for the L.A. Riots and the devastating human impact of those five days of uprising.

Originally performed solo by Smith when it premiered at the Taper in 1993, "Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992" has been reimagined for an ensemble of five performers. Commissioned by Center Theatre Group, "Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992"'s sold-out run in Los Angeles was followed by many successful revisions of the play, with each inviting a new group of collaborators. Those include a production at The Public Theater followed by a Broadway run and two Tony nominations; a national tour mounted at Berkeley Repertory Theatre; a film produced by Ms. Smith and others in partnership with PBS; and the most recent reconceptualized production for five actors at the Signature Theatre in New York. This landmark play returns to the theatre where it was created and the community it reflects in a new revision that is disturbingly current, a full three decades after its original premiere.

Anna Deavere Smith said, "Being asked by Gordon Davidson to move through the embers of the Los Angeles uprising was a watershed moment in my life as an artist and as a human being. The can do must do spirit of Gordon, the entire institution and the community, sparked something I had never experienced and have not experienced since. Center Theatre Group provided a way for me, in tandem with other drama professionals and with local intellectuals/activists, to respond to the civic disaster through theatre. Here is where I learned that theatre can be transformative if it exudes what I have come to call 'a radical welcome.' No doubt there were folks at the table who had not ever been invited to step up before."

Anna Deavere Smith is an actress, playwright, teacher and author. She is credited with having created the new form of theatre. Smith's work combines the journalistic technique of interviewing her subjects with the art of interpreting their words through performance. President Obama awarded Smith the National Humanities Medal in 2013. Additional honors include the prestigious MacArthur "Genius Grant" Fellowship, the Medal for Spoken Language from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the George Polk Career Award in Journalism, two Tony nominations and several honorary degrees. She was runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama. Smith has created over fifteen one-person shows based on hundreds of interviews. Her most recent play, "Notes from the Field," looks at the vulnerability of youth, inequality and the criminal justice system. The New York Times named it among The Best Theater of 2016 and Time magazine named it one of the Top 10 Plays of that year. In 2018, HBO premiered the film version of "Notes from the Field." Smith's play "Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992" was recently named one of the best plays of the last twenty-five years by The New York Times. She has appeared in television shows such as "Inventing Anna," "The West Wing" and "Nurse Jackie." Films include "The American President," "Philadelphia" and "Rachel Getting Married." She is a University Professor at Tisch School of the Arts at NYU.

Fake It Until You Make It

By Larissa Fasthorse
World Premiere
August 2 - September 3, 2023
Opens August 9

The 2022 - 2023 Season at the Mark Taper Forum concludes with the world premiere of a new comedy by award-winning Native American playwright Larissa Fasthorse. Commissioned by Center Theatre Group, "Fake It Until You Make It" will begin performances August 2 and runs through September 3, 2023. Opening night is August 9.

Set in Los Angeles, "Fake It Until You Make It" is a bold comedy about being whoever you want to be, even when it's not who you are. Celebrated for focusing her keen sense of satire to examine Native American perspectives on contemporary life, FastHorse shines a hilarious light on 'shifters' who exist in a world of self-determined identity with "Fake It Until You Make It." This thought-provoking comedic play asks, what happens when you don't believe you are the race you want to be? Change it. This new work takes an absurd look at what defines who we are, and the lengths some people will go through to change it.

A member of Center Theatre Group's 2011 - 2012 L.A. Writers' Workshop, FastHorse (Sicangu Lakota Nation) will be the first Native American writer to have a mainstage production at the Mark Taper Forum.

"My favorite thing is to make people laugh together," said FastHorse. "Getting to do that at Center Theatre Group, in my adopted hometown, with a new play created specifically for the Taper is thrilling. It's going to be fun!"

Larissa Fasthorse is a Los Angeles-based playwright and 2020-2025 MacArthur Fellow. Her satirical comedy, "The Thanksgiving Play" (Playwrights Horizons/Geffen Playhouse), was one of the top ten most produced plays in America during the 2019 - 2020 season. She is the first Native American playwright in the history of American theatre on that list. In Spring 2023, "The Thanksgiving Play" will have its debut on Broadway produced by Second Stage, making FastHorse the first female Native American playwright ever produced on Broadway. Larissa Fasthorse is currently developing new plays with several theatres including Second Stage Theater, Center Theatre Group, The Public Theater, Guthrie Theater, Seattle Repertory Theatre and Yale Repertory Theatre. Selected additional produced plays include "What Would Crazy Horse Do?" (KCRep); "Landless" and "Cow Pie Bingo" (AlterTheater), "Average Family" (Children's Theater Company of Minneapolis); "Teaching Disco Squaredancing to Our Elders: a Class Presentation" (Native Voices at the Autry); "Vanishing Point" (Eagle Project) and "Cherokee Family Reunion" (Mountainside Theater).

In 2019, FastHorse re-entered film and television by co-creating a series at Freeform. Since then, she has set up projects with Disney Channel, NBC and DreamWorks, is writing on a series for Apple TV+ and adapting three beloved Broadway musicals. Over the past several years, Larissa has created a nationally-recognized trilogy of community-engaged theatrical experiences with Cornerstone Theater Company and her collaborative partner, Michael John Garcés. The first of the trilogy was "Urban Rez" in Los Angeles. The second project, "Native Nation," was the largest Indigenous theatre production in the history of American theatre withover 400 Native artists involved in the production in association with ASU Gammage. FastHorse and Garcés' current project, "Wicoun" is set in Larissa's homelands of South Dakota. Their radical inclusion process with Indigenous tribes has been honored with the most prestigious national arts funding from Creative Capital, MAP Fund, NEFA, First People's Fund, the NEA Our Town Grant, Mellon Foundation, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Native Arts and Cultures and others. FastHorse's other awards include the PEN/Laura Pels Theater Award for an American Playwright, NEA Distinguished New Play Development Grant, Joe Dowling Annamaghkerrig Fellowship, AATE Distinguished Play Award, Inge Residency, Sundance/Ford Foundation Fellowship, Aurand Harris Fellowship and the UCLA Native American Program Woman of the Year.

"There's something in our house. I hear it every night, at the same time." Jenny believes her new home is haunted, but her husband Sam isn't having any of it. They argue with their first dinner guests, old friend Lauren and her new partner Ben. Can the dead really walk again? Belief and scepticism clash, but something feels strange and frightening, and that something is getting closer, so they are going to stay up until 2:22 a.m... and then they will know.

"2:22 - A Ghost Story" is currently running in London's West End at the Criterion Theatre. After breaking all box office records for a new play at the Noel Coward Theatre; described as the theatre event of the year and the hottest ticket in the West End; and after weeks of sell-out performances, the show transferred for another record-breaking run at the Gielgud Theatre.

1776

Music and Lyrics by Sherman Edwards
Book by Peter Stone
Directed by Jeffrey L. Page and Diane Paulus
Choreographed by Jeffrey L. Page
April 5 - May 7, 2023
Opens April 6

The A.R.T. / Roundabout Theatre Company revival of "1776" featuring a cast of female, non-binary and transgender performers comes to the Ahmanson as part of a limited national tour following its premiere at A.R.T. and Broadway opening at Roundabout's American Airlines Theatre in New York City. "1776" begins performances on April 5 and continues through May 7, 2023. Opening night is April 6.

"1776" asks, what will it take to get two dozen powerfully passionate, exceedingly complicated and all-too-human individuals to settle their differences, while they hold the very future of a nation in their hands? This Tony Award-winning Best Musical is tuneful, witty and constantly surprising, especially in this revolutionary new production from directors Jeffrey L. Page (Beyoncé's "Run the World (Girls)" video, "Memphis" in Tokyo; "Violet" starring Sutton Foster at Roundabout Theatre Company) and Diane Paulus ("Jagged Little Pill," "Waitress," "Pippin"). You may never think about our country - who we are and why - the same way again.

"1776" features music and lyrics by Sherman Edwards and a book by Peter Stone. It is based on a concept by Sherman Edwards. The design team includes Tony Award-winning Scenic Designer Scott Pask ("Waitress," "Finding Neverland" "Pippin"); Tony Award-nominated Costume Designer Emilio Sosa ("The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess"); Lighting Designer Jennifer Schriever ("In the Body of the World" at A.R.T./New York City Center; "Fingersmith" at A.R.T.); Tony Award-nominated Sound Designer Jonathan Deans ("Jagged Little Pill," "Waitress," "Finding Neverland" at A.R.T./Broadway; "Pippin" on Broadway) and Drama Desk Awardnominated Projection Designer David Bengali ("We Live in Cairo" at A.R.T., Associate Designer of "Witness Uganda" at A.R.T. / "Invisible Thread" at Second Stage).

The "1776" music team is comprised of Music Supervisor David Chase ("Finding Neverland"); Tony Award nominated Orchestrator John Clancy ("Fun Home;" "Mean Girls"); Vocal Designer AnnMarie Milazzo ("Finding Neverland"); Music Consultant and Co-Music Director Nadia DiGiallonardo ("Waitress"); and Co-Music Director Ryan Cantwell ("Pippin"). "This new production of '1776' is giving me the opportunity to not only see, but also contextualize, myself in a history that has historically occluded me and people who look like me-to realize history in a new way, and to find it in our country," said director / choreographer Jeffrey L. Page. "As I've worked with Diane [Paulus], we've explored the unsaid, unspoken, and unwritten history, and as a result, I have found myself inside of the important piece of art, inside of American history, and I have learned something new about both." "Jeffrey [Page] and I are fascinated by the idea that history isn't the clear or linear story we read in our textbooks, but instead, a predicament that we must grapple with in order to understand our past so that we can move forward together," said director Diane Paulus. "We make theatre in collaboration to expand our point of view, and I'm so excited to continue this creative partnership with Jeffrey and to work with this extraordinary cast to bring this new production to our A.R.T. audience in Cambridge, and beyond."

In 1944, on a Louisiana Army base, two shots ring out. A Black sergeant is murdered.

Charles Fuller's masterpiece opened on Broadway for the first time on January 21, 2020 at Roundabout Theatre Company's American Airlines Theatre, nearly forty years after it was written. The acclaimed production was nominated for seven Tony Awards and three Drama Desk Awards, winning Best Revival for both.
