L.A. Theatre Works: Marsha Mason, Dennis Boutsikaris, Martin Jarvis

Their productions from L.A. Theatre Works include CALIFORNIA SUITE by Neil Simon, which features Marsha Mason, Bruce Davison, Amy Pietz, and narrator Dennis Boutsikaris. ONCE IN A LIFETIME is a comic play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart about a voice academy for silent film stars. (The stars here are Ed Asner, Jonathan Silverman, Sarah Rafferty, and Caroline Aaron, among others.) THE PHYSICISTS by Friedrich Durrenmatt features Gregory Itzin, Harry Goener, John de Lancie and Bruce Davison in a story about what constitutes madness in our nuclear age. AWAKE and SING! by Cllfford Odets features Mark Ruffalo, Richard Kind, Jane Kaczmarek and Ben Gazzara (among others) in a story about a Bronx immigrant family struggling to survive after the Great Depression. SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER by Oliver Goldsmith is another classic comedy of manners featuring Joanne Whalley, James Marsters, and Ian Qgilvy. (It's directed by the inimitable Martin Jarvis, a longtime audiobook narrator.) And FLYOVERS by Jeffrey Sweet is about a film critic who returns to his hometown reunion, only to stir up trouble.
