Luke MacFarlane, Jeremy Gabriel, and Heather Prete star in the Blank Theatre Company's production of Allan Knee's play THE JAZZ AGE. The production runs now through March 22, 2009.

F. Scott Fitzgerald. Ernest Hemingway. Zelda Fitzgerald. Literary history's most intriguing characters. This sexy new play goes inside their minds to fantasize on the question of "inspiration". Punctuated by the pulsating beat of a live jazz trio, THE JAZZ AGE asks the compelling question "Why do we do what we do?"

The Academy Award-winning film FINDING NEVERLAND was based on playwright Allan Knee's personal and deeply emotional play, similarly exploring The Life and heart of writer J.M. Barrie. An evening of pure decadence coupled with sheer brilliance, this play will breathlessly take you down a dark, forbidden path.

THE JAZZ AGE is produced in association with Jana Robbins Productions. Robbins graced the stage in The Blank's HELLO AGAIN and has since gone on to be a successful Broadway producer (LITTLE WOMEN). When looking for a theatre to partner with in the development of THE JAZZ AGE, Robbins came back to The Blank.

The production will be directed by Michael Matthews, and Grammy Award winner Ian Whitcomb and his Bungalow Boys will accompany the play with an original score by Whitcomb.

Macfarlane is best known for his role as Scotty on ABC's Brothers & Sisters. His stage credits include The Busy World Is Hushed, Where Do We Live? among other works.

The Blank Theatre Company is located at 6500 Santa Monica Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90038.
