Produced by the newly formed Immediate Theatre Group, the Equity waiver production will continue through Feb. 1. In a recent statement Crumm said, "People are going to like this play. It's funny. It moves quick, and you just don't expect them to do it! I'm just excited to be back on stage."

Cameron Fife's one-act play also features the talents of Bradford Benoit, Wilton Godfrey and writer Fife. Immediate Theatre Group artistic director Chuck Bradley directs.

Killing Diaz, according to press notes, "tells the story of five friends, who in order to avoid an awkward confrontation, plot to murder an upstairs neighbor. Crumm plays Tyler, the one who comes up with the idea. It's a dark comedy exploring how being selfish and egotistical can seem harmless until pride is put on the line. Adam Brooks plays Joe, the sociopathic ex-roommate who would rather see an innocent girl die than face her after his lies put him in a precarious situation."

Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 7 PM.

The Lounge Theatre is located at 6201 Santa Monica Blvd. in Los Angeles, CA. For ticket information e-mail killingdiaz@rocketmail.com.
