Stamped, a new comedy-drama by Gary A. Bisig, will have its world premiere Friday May 12 at the MET Theatre in Hollywood. The production reunites several artists who were present at the opening of the 27-year-old theatre: actor James Gannon, director Paul Koslo and producer Stephen Whittaker.
Gammon stars in the hit TV series "Nash Bridges," playing the father of Don Johnson. Gammon has been in over 100 movies, often as a cowboy (he played Horsethief Shorty in Robert Redford's adaptation of "The Milagro Beanfield War"). He will appear with Nick Nolte, Woody Harrelson and Sean Penn in a play in San Francisco this fall. Gannon directed Nolte in Picnic at the MET in its first season.
Stamped deals with two postal workers submitting to compulsory counseling from a government psychologist after having survived a shooting at their station. Bisig has had three other plays produced in New York and Los Angeles.
The other featured actors are M. Darnell Suttles and Margaret Blye. Koslo's previous directing credits at the MET include Curse of the Starving Class, Circe and Bravo and Spec.
Through June 25 at the MET, 1089 N. Oxford Ave. For tickets and information call (323) 957-1152. -- By Willard Manus
