News   L.A.'s Celebration Theatre Takes a Swing at Take Me Out Sept. 22-Oct. 31; Casting Announced
 
Celebration Theatre, the Los Angeles company devoted to LGBT writers and topics, will present Richard Greenberg's Best Play Tony Award winner Take Me Out, about a gay major league ballplayer, Sept. 22-Oct. 31.

Michael Matthews directs the comedy-drama. Opening night is Sept. 24. The cast includes Rick Cosnett, Tom Costello, Delarosa, Duke Dlouhy, Michael Edwin, Eiji Inoue, Ari Katz, Garrett Matheson, Thomas James O'Leary and Jacques C. Smith.

According to production notes, "Darren Lemming is the star center fielder for the champion New York Empires. An extraordinary athlete, he fills both his fans and his teammates with awe at his abilities and his presence on the field and off. When he makes the matter-of-fact announcement that he's gay, he throws his team into turmoil and confusion, while he also emboldens his closeted accountant, Mason Marzac, to come to terms with his own sexuality—and to fully experience the pure joy of watching great athletes play a sport as well as it can be played."

Celebration Theatre is at 7051B Santa Monica Blvd., in Hollywood, CA. For information, call (323) 957-1884 or www.celebrationtheatre.com.
