Out of Box Theatre to Present THE ONLY LIGHT IN RENO This Month
Reno, Nevada. The Mapes Hotel. August, 1960. It is 106 degrees outside. Filming on the Hollywood movie "The Misfits" is hopelessly behind schedule, with no end in sight. The Sierra Mountains are on fire, and Reno is in total blackout. Elizabeth Taylor. Montgomery Clift. Marilyn Monroe. Libby Holman. Paula Strasberg. Five celebrities, five oversized egos, one tiny hotel room, and one extension cord.
The Only Light in Reno, by Topher Payne, is the hilarious story of when Hollywood came to The Biggest Little City in the World, and everything went up in flames.
Directed by Matthew Busch. Featuring Daniel Carter Brown as Montgomery Clift, Jennifer Lee as Libby Holman, Carolyn Choe as Paula Strasberg, Emily Sams as Elizabeth Taylor, and Bryn Striepe as Marilyn Monroe.
The Only Light in Reno runs August 11-26, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM. Out of Box Theatre is located in the Artisan Resource Center at 585 Cobb Pkwy S, Marietta, 30060. Tickets are $15-$25 and can be purchased online at www.outofboxtheatre.com or by calling 678-653-4605.
