Tonight Center Theatre Group opens Steppenwolf Theatre Company's production of Linda Vista written by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning ensemble member Tracy Letts, directed by Dexter Bullard, who also directed the world premiere at Steppenwolf. The production features Steppenwolf ensemble members Ian Barford, Tim Hopper, Sally Murphy and Caroline Neff with Chantal Thuy, Cora Vander Broek and Troy West.

Linda Vista runs through February 17, 2019 in the Mark Taper Forum at Center Theatre Group, 601 W. Temple St. Los Angeles. Single tickets are available at (213) 628-2772, online at centertheatregroup.org.

Linda Vista tells of Wheeler, a 50-year-old man who is floating. His marriage is over, his job is mundane, and the best years of his life appear to be behind him. A move from the cot in his ex-wife's garage to his own apartment opens up new possibilities for love, sex and maybe a taste of redemption. Full of opinions, yet short on self-examination, Wheeler must reconcile the man he has become with the man he wants to be in this searing work that resonates with a new sense of sobriety in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

Linda Vista was commissioned by Steppenwolf Theatre Company where it received its world premiere in April 2017.

The Linda Vista cast features Steppenwolf ensemble members Ian Barford (Wheeler), Tim Hopper (Paul), Sally Murphy (Margaret) and Caroline Neff (Anita) with Chantal Thuy (Minnie), Cora Vander Broek (Jules) and Troy West (Michael).

The Linda Vista production team includes Todd Rosenthal (Scenic Design), Laura Bauer (Costume Design), Marcus Doshi (Lighting Design), Richard Woodbury (Sound Design), Edward Sobel (Dramaturg). Additional credits include JC Clementz (Casting), Lindsay Allbaugh (Associate Producer) and David S. Franklin (Production Stage Manager).
