God Looked Away - 2017 - Los Angeles

$59 - $186

Al Pacino (Scent of a Woman) and Judith Light (Transparent) take the stage in this seismic story about Tennessee Williams. Resisting the end of his career, one of America's most beloved, prolific and flawed playwrights works to open his final play in Chicago while his hotel room becomes the setting of a battle between creation and addiction; love and sex; immediate satisfaction and eternal legacy. Robert Allan Ackerman (Salome) directs the inaugural PlayWorks Development Production written by Dotson Rader.

A familiar face to television audiences, she co-starred in the soap One Life to Live winning two Daytime Emmy Awards and in prime time with Tony Danza in Who's the Boss?She has also won two Tony Awards for her stellar work on Broadway. She is a gay rights activist and she and her husband Robert Desiderio have contributed greatly to the gay community in Los Angeles over the years. Co-starring in Amazon's web series Transparent, she is currently performing double duty: the TV show by day and at night a workshop play God Looked Away at the Pasadena Playhouse sharing the stage with none other than icon Al Pacino. I caught up with her this week, and she talked briefly but joyously about the play, her role in it and working with Pacino.
