Doug Harris, Andy Umberger & More to Star in A FEW GOOD MEN at La Mirada Theatre

La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts and McCoy Rigby Entertainment have announced the cast for the second show of their 2022-2023 season, the rarely produced and widely acclaimed military masterpiece A FEW GOOD MEN, written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Casey Stangl. A FEW GOOD MEN will preview on Friday, October 28 at 8 pm & Saturday, October 29 at 2 pm (with a press opening on Saturday, October 29 at 8 pm) and will run through Sunday, November 20, 2022 at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, 14900 La Mirada Blvd in La Mirada.

From Academy-Award winning writer and renowned playwright Aaron Sorkin ("The West Wing" and To Kill A Mockingbird), this Broadway hit (which became a smash-hit film starring Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise) sizzles on stage. In this courtroom drama about two Marines on trial for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay, a Navy lawyer - who's more interested in softball games than the case -- expects a plea bargain and a cover-up of what really happened. Prodded by a determined female member of his defense team, he eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial. Recommended for mature audiences.

The Cast of A FEW GOOD MEN will feature Doug Harris as "Lt. j.g. Daniel A. Kaffee," Andy Umberger as "Col. Nathan Jessep," Leanne Antonio as "Lt. Cmdr. Joanne Galloway," Sara King as "Lt. Jack Ross," Matthew Bohrer as "Lt. j.g. Sam Weinberg," Patrick Stafford as "Lt. Jonathan James Kendrick," Brandon Engman as "Pfc. Louden Downey," Corey Jones as "Lt. Col. Matthew A.
