LOS ANGELES -- Richard Dresser's romantic comedy Alone At the Beach will open Jan. 15, 1999 at the Stella Adler Theatre in Hollywood for a one-month run to Feb. 13.
Directed by Richard Israel, Dresser's play looks at what happens when a man's dreams meet the reality of other people's problems.
"Shy and earnest George (Patrick Fischler) has quit his publishing job wanting to make a fresh break in his recently-inherited summer home in the Hamptons," notes a company press release. "To help defray living expenses, he invites five strangers to share the residence and his dream of building a community which can make a difference. His new housemates, however, turn out to be not so idealistic."
Other cast members include George Castells or Paul Wittenburg, Jennifer Maxey, Christopher Shea, Jodi Harris, Lauren Cohen and Derek Webster.
The Stella Adler is at 6773 Hollywood Blvd. Call (310) 572-6748 for information. -- By Willard Manus
