Greg Germann Joins Gregory Itzin, Amy Pietz and Steven Weber Set for Enron in L.A.

News   Greg Germann Joins Gregory Itzin, Amy Pietz and Steven Weber Set for Enron in L.A. "Ally McBeal" actor Greg Germann has joined the L.A. Theatre Works staging of Lucy Prebble's Enron, which will begin performances Oct. 20.

As previously reported, Gregory Itzin, who originated the role of Kenneth Lay in the Broadway company, will repeat his performance in Los Angeles. Steven Weber will appear as Jeffrey Skilling, and Amy Pietz will portray Claudia Roe. Germann will step into the role of Andy Fastow.

The cast will also include Chris Butler, Pamela J. Gray, Thomas Vincent Kelly, Kasey Mahaffy, Jon Matthews, Julia McIlvane, Russell Soder and Kenneth Alan Williams.

Rosalind Ayres will stage Prebble's vaudevillian look at corporate America that will be presented through Oct. 24 at the Skirball Center. The play famously makes use of music, "Star Wars" imagery and dinosaurs to comment on the American business model.

Enron is described as "a rapid-fire, sophisticated thrill-ride that propels the audience through one of the most infamous financial scandals in history. Using a clever mix of humor, pathos, and music, the big biz machinations of Kenneth Lay, Jeffrey Skilling and Andy Fastow are laid bare as razzle-dazzle entertainment, casting a shocking new light on the state of today’s economy and how we got here."

Enron arrived on Broadway last April after an acclaimed London run, which concluded in August. Enron failed to ignite its Broadway box office and shuttered after 37 performances in May. It earned four Tony Award nominations, including Best Featured Actor in a Play (Stephen Kunken), Best Lighting Design of a Play (Mark Henderson), Best Sound Design of a Play (Adam Cork) and Best Score (music by Adam Cork, lyrics by Lucy Prebble). All LATW productions are recorded and broadcast on LATW's nationally syndicated radio theatre series, "The Play's the Thing."

For tickets to any of "The Play's the Thing" productions at the Skirball Cultural Center, 2701 N. Sepulveda Boulevard, call the L.A. Theatre Works box office at (310) 827-0889.
