Richard Greenberg, whose latest play Everett Beekin, just had its world premiere at South Coast Rep in Costa Mesa, also has another, earlier comedy on the boards in the southland, The Author's Voice. Directed by Timothy Lea and produced by Cindy D'Andrea for Main Floor Productions, it is running through Oct. 7 at the Third Street Theatre.
Helena V. Lewis, Jeff Glickman and Jordan Mott are featured in the play, which deals with Todd, an author on the brink of his greatest success who would like to seduce his pretty editor, Portia. She is charmed by him and is ready and willing. However, Todd has a muse named Gene who is not only a gnome but lives next door--and has some strange ideas of his own.
Set and costume design by George Moes; lighting by Christian Smith; sound Billy Gottleib.
Third Street Theatre is located at 8140 W. Third St. For tickets and information call (323) 860-9834.
