Doug Wright's Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama will play a four-week limited engagement through July 10 at the Wadsworth Theatre in Brentwood, California. In the gender-bending solo show, Mays plays a number of characters that revolve around the life of East-German transvestite Charlotte von Mahlsdorf who survived both the Nazi reign and subsequent Communist regime.
The new season at Geffen will launch in September with Heather Raffo's Nine Parts of Desire (Sept. 6-Oct. 16). The 2005-2006 season lineup will also include Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Nov. 5-Dec. 18) starring John Goodman (Big River, "Roseanne") as Big Daddy, Arthur Miller's All My Sons, David Mamet's Boston Marriage, Rick Cleveland's My Buddy Bill and a world premiere to be announced.
