News   Casting Announced for Reading of Love in the Time of Channukah, From Author of Bad Jews The 2014 season of Sixth Avenue’s Town Hall Back Room Reading Series will conclude Dec. 9 with a reading of Joshua Harmon's Love in the Time of Channukah at Akbar in Silver Lake.

Directed by Luke Kanter, the cast will feature JD Barton, Will Branske, Dylan Chouinard, Pip Lilly, Chelsea London Lloyd, Alain Pierre and Rick Shattuck. Love in the Time of Channukah, according to press notes, "tells the tale of Gayboi, a college freshman celebrating Channukah on his own for the very first time. With a motley crew by his side — funky bff, Neanderthal-lite homophobic roommate, studly str8 crush, flaming sidekick, and a fairy godperson — can Gayboi build a collegiate family of friends and find true love? A proper gay fantasia, sans Kushner."

Harmon wrote Bad Jews, which received both Outer Critics Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award nominations and which will have its West Coast premiere at the Geffen Playhouse in the summer of 2015.

Akbar is located at 4356 W. Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Admission is free, but reservations are suggested at www.6avenue.org.
