News   Bruce Vilanch, Jerry Adler, Constantine Maroulis Unearth Rubble in New Play by "Simpsons" Writer
 
James Valletti, Stephenie Skyllas and Hunter Chancellor present invitation-only readings of Rubble, a comedy written by four-time Emmy Award-winning "The Simpsons" writer Mike Reiss, March 26 at 4 PM and March 27 at 1 PM and 5 PM.

Directed by Valletti, the cast features Emmy winner Bruce Vilanch, Jerry Adler, Constantine Maroulis, Jason Jacoby, Amy Wilson and Jeff Still. In Rubble, press notes state, "Alvin (Vilanch), an aging, down-on-his-luck comedy writer who—much to his chagrin—has narrowly escaped fortune, fame, and Emmy awards, is on a last-chance meeting with a network executive. During a spirited pitch of his new series idea, 'My Brother, The Pope,' a massive earthquake hits LA, leaving him buried up to his neck in a pile of rubble. What ensues are a series of hilarious visits--from his older-and-more-useless-than-dirt agent Lee (Adler) and his ex-wife Brie (Wilson), to a pompous Dad (Still) and a singing and dancing Jesus (Maroulis). Will Alvin be saved from a miserable fate, or will it be 'death by showbiz,' forgotten under a mound of trash on a studio lot while his agent makes reservations at The Olive Garden…?"

Incidental music is by Christopher Howatt with casting by Daryl Eisenberg Casting.
