Los Angeles Gets One Last Chance to See Tim Robbins' Off-Broadway-Bound Embedded

News   Los Angeles Gets One Last Chance to See Tim Robbins' Off-Broadway-Bound Embedded The Actors' Gang staging of Tim Robbins' Embedded — which was just added to The Public Theatre's Off-Broadway season — will play a special final performance as a fundraising event at the ensemble's Los Angeles venue, Feb. 4.

The performance — directed by Actors' Gang artistic director — will be followed by a special "Bon Voyage" Party in honor of the cast's trip to New York City. For tickets ($100) to the show, champagne toast and party, call (323) 465-0566. Embedded roots itself in today's headlines, as "embedded" journalists spin their stories on soldiers involved in a Middle Eastern conflict. The work takes a biting look at the world of media, politics and war through characters which include jaded journalists, scheming government officials and a showtune-singing colonel.

As an actor, Robbins can currently be seen in "Mystic River." He has also appeared in such films as "Bull Durham," "The Hudsucker Proxy," "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Player." He recently appeared Off-Broadway in the rotating cast shows: The Guys, Trumbo and The Exonerated. Also a screenwriter-director, Robbins penned and helmed the film versions of "Cradle Will Rock," "Bob Roberts" and "Dead Man Walking."
