Tribes celebrated its Opening Night on Sunday, March 10 at the Mark Taper Forum. Written by Nina Raine, the CTG and Barrow Street Theatre production is directed by David Cromer in the play's West Coast Premiere.

Celebrities such as Guillermo Diaz, Jonathan Groff, Deidre Hall, Ian Harding, Jane Kaczmarek, Alan Mandell, Ron Perlman, Jeff Perry, Nina Raine (playwright), Peter Roth, Joan Van Ark and Charlayne Woodard attended the opening festivities, and BroadwayWorld has photos below!

At the center of "Tribes" is Billy, the youngest son of a raucous family of intellectuals obsessed with self expression. As his parents and siblings verbally spar and compete for attention, Billy, who is deaf, catches what he can by lip-reading. When Billy meets Sylvia, a young woman who is an expert at sign language and is losing her hearing, he asks her to teach him how to sign, and for the first time, he is introduced to the deaf community. Billy's life is transformed as a different world is unveiled to him. But when a new door opens, does another have to be closed?

Mark Taper Forum at the Music Center is located at 135 N. Grand Ave. Downtown Los Angeles, Calif. "Tribes" continues through April 14, 2013. Tickets are available in person at the CTG box office, by phone (213) 628-2772 or online at www.CenterTheatreGroup.org.
