News   Pericles Redux, a "Reconstruction" of Shakespeare's Play, Plays L.A. July 17-25
 
Not Man Apart Physical Theatre Ensemble's Pericles Redux, inspired by the Shakespeare adventure and directed by John Farmanesh-Bocca, begins a nine-performance run at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Los Angeles July 17. It plays to July 25.

Emmy Award winner Jennifer Landon of "As the World Turns" is among the performers.

According to production notes, "Pericles Redux presents an electrifying reconstruction of Shakespeare's romantic odyssey, which follows the fate of Pericles, Prince of Tyre, as he escapes deadly assassins and braves many challenges to attain a wife and family that he quickly loses in a deadly storm at sea. Scattered in far off places the family desperately tries to reunite."

Farmanesh-Bocca, a former Juilliard Directing Fellow and artistic director for the Not Man Apart Physical Theatre Ensemble, stated, "When we opened Pericles Redux in Edinburgh, Scotland, we felt we had a great production, but we were unprepared for such a positive response which resulted in a month of sold out performances and critical acclaim. We're honored to add Jennifer Landon to the cast and are eager to share our contemporary vision of this immortal work with new audiences in Los Angeles."

The cast also includes Alix Angelis, Michael Buffo, Vincent Cardinale, Jonathan Martin, Rachel McGuinness, Dash Pepin, Arnell Powell, Randolph Rand, Alexander Rogers, Ashley-Nicole Sherman, Jones Welsh and Carvell Wallace.

The production is sponsored by the Dax Foundation, and ticket sales "benefit recipients of the Foundation's Performing Arts Charitable Trust (PACT)." This is not a production of Center Theatre Group, which runs and programs the Douglas, in Culver City, CA. Tickets are available by calling (213) 628-2772 or by visiting www.CenterTheatreGroup.org or www.PericlesRedux.com.
