Sixth Avenue Town Hall Reading Series to Present LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHANNUKAH, 12/9
Sixth Avenue's Town Hall Back Room Reading Series will end its 2014 season with Love in the Time of Channukah, written by Joshua Harmon and directed by Luke Kanter, it was announced today by Sixth Avenue producer Adam Silver. The play will be read one night only, Tuesday, December 9 at 8:00 at Akbar in Silver Lake.
The cast will feature (in alphabetical order) JD Barton, Will Branske, Dylan Chouinard, Pip Lilly, Chelsea London Lloyd, Alain Pierre, and Rick Shattuck. Love in the Time of Channukah tells the tale of Gayboi, a college freshman celebrating Channukah on his own for the very first time. With a motley crew by his side - funky bff, Neanderthal-lite homophobic roommate, studly str8 crush, flaming sidekick, and a fairy godperson - can Gayboi build a collegiate family of friends and find true love? A proper gay fantasia, sans Kushner. Joshua Harmon wrote last year's NYC hit Bad Jews (which received both Outer Critics Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award nominations) and which will have its West Coast premiere at the Geffen Playhouse in the summer of 2015.
Town Hall is Sixth Avenue's monthly play reading series taking place on the second Tuesday of every month at Akbar. A slate of events for 2015 will be announced shortly.
Akbar, Silver Lake's "neighborhood oasis," is located at 4356 W. Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Admission is free, but reservations are suggested at www.6avenue.org. For more information on Sixth Avenue and Town Hall, visit www.6avenue.org.
