Season at L.A.'s Kirk Douglas Theatre Shuffled to Include New Works Fest, Readings and Workshops

News   Season at L.A.'s Kirk Douglas Theatre Shuffled to Include New Works Fest, Readings and Workshops The Center Theatre Group has shuffled its inaugural season of six world premieres to include the 17th annual Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum New Work Festival, Feb. 16-20.

Upcoming premieres of A Distant Shore and Apollo – Part 1: Lebensraum have been affected by the change. The new schedule also allows for a series of developing play readings and workshops, open to the public, March 22-April 3.

Chay Yew's A Distant Shore will now perform April 24-May 22. Robert Egan (Chinese Friends) — who is also set to direct the upcoming premiere of Charlayne Woodard's Flight at the venue — will stage the tale of love against tradition and politics that crosses many generations of two families in a small Southeast Asian country.

Nancy Keystone's Apollo - Part 1: Lebensraum is now set for a June 5-July 3 run. Keystone directs her world premiere, created in collaboration with Critical Mass Performance Group, which combines text, image, movement and music to retell the stories of Wernher von Braun and Arthur Rudolph, scientists of Nazi Germany’s rocket program who become American heroes.

The new 300-seat Kirk Douglas Theatre joins the Los Angeles-based Center Theatre Group's 745-seat Mark Taper Forum and the 1600- to 2000-seat Ahmanson Theatre at the Music Center.

Tickets for productions at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, 9820 Washington Blvd. in downtown Culver City, CA, are available by calling (213) 628-2772. For more information, visit the website at www.KirkDouglasTheatre.org.
