Directed by Trevor Bishop, the political farce will play through March 24. The cast, featuring Theatre of Note ensemble members, will comprise Inger Tudor, Ezra Buzzington, Jennifer Ann Evans, Trevor Olsen, Ron Morehouse, Stephen Alan Carver, David Wilcox and Sarah Lilly. Just Say No is set in 1982 and, according to press notes, concerns "the affluent and fabulous Foppy Schwartz [who] has a problem larger than deciding where to take the ladies who lunch. He is caught in the middle of a sex scandal that threatens the re-election of America's most powerful political figures. A feckless New York mayor, a closeted son, and even the nation's infamous first lady all converge into Foppy's crowded townhouse for help. Will Foppy keep the secrets and lies of the high and mighty? Will Foppy finally ask the powerful Mrs. Potentate to save his dying friends from a mysterious disease? And what will he wear while doing it?"

Playwright and activist Larry Kramer also penned The Normal Heart and The Destiny of Me.

Just Say No will play Thursday-Saturday evenings at 8 PM. Tickets, priced $18, are available by calling (323) 856-8611.

Theatre of Note is located at 1517 N. Cahuenga Blvd. in Hollywood, CA.
