Three top soap opera stars -- Woody Brown, John Aniston and Robert Kelker-Kelly -- will star in the world premiere of Parental Discretion, a comedy by Gary Goldstein about a gay male couple thinking of having a baby.
Aniston has been a regular on such daytime shows as "Days of Our Lives"; Ditto Brown on "Young & The Restless"; and Kelker-Kelly on "Days of Our Lives." The director of Parental Discretion, Richard Kline, is another TV vet, having starred on the sitcom "Three's Company" for many years.
Following up on the success of his critically-acclaimed, long-running 1996 hit, Just Men, Goldstein looks at Brian and Dan, who are thinking about building a family -- until Brian's politically-incorrect dad, Jack, shows up suddenly and announces that he's moving in with them. Brian realizes that having a father is tougher than actually becoming one.
The play also stars Janet Carroll (currently featured in "Forces of Nature"), Alex Datcher, Maureen Dempsey and Andrea Portes.
The play previews April 15, opens April 16 and runs through May 23 at the Coast Playhouse, 8325 Santa Monica Blvd. Call (323) 660-8587 for information. -- By Willard Manus
