The Blank Theatre Presents DR. KEELING'S CURVE, Now thru 10/14
The Blank Theatre (Daniel Henning, Founding Artistic Director) has announced a special preview engagement of Mike Farrell starring in Dr. Keeling's Curve by George Shea, directed by Kirsten Sanderson. There will be 12 performances only, tonight, September 21 through October 14, at the 2nd Stage Theatre in Hollywood.
Walk into the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. There you will find Darwin's finches next to the double helix; and beside that, the Keeling Curve ... a graph depicting the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide. Its message proclaims the most basic fact of climate change: that carbon dioxide levels have been climbing, and are continuing to rise at an extraordinary and accelerating pace. Mike Farrell plays Dr. Charles David Keeling in this all too real and often funny one man bio-play that makes global warming understandable, and reveals it to be anything but a myth. Dr. Keeling's Curve was originally developed in The Blank's Living Room Series.
Mike Farrell is best known for his role as B.J. Hunnicut in the iconic television series M*A*S*H. The two-time Emmy Award nominee also played roles in the popular television series Providence and Desperate Housewives. In 2010, Farrell starred in The Blank Theatre's acclaimed production of Terre Haute by Edmund White, also directed by Kirsten Sanderson. Set and lighting design for Dr. Keeling's Curve are by Cameron Zetty, and sound design is by Warren Davis. The stage manager is Sandy Fury.
Dr. Keeling's Curve will begin performances in Hollywood tonight, September 21 at the 2nd Stage Theatre, 6500 Santa Monica Boulevard (at Wilcox), and will continue through Sunday, October 14 only. The running schedule is Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00, with Sunday matinees at 2pm. All seats are $25, and may be purchased online at www.TheBlank.com, or via phone by calling (323) 661-9827.
