The Blank Theatre Company in association with Jana Robbins Productions will present the West Coast Premiere of The Jazz Age beginning Feb. 7 at The Blank's 2nd Stage Theatre in Hollywood, CA.

Directed by Michael Matthews, Allan Knee's play will officially open Feb. 12. Performances will continue through March 22.

Luke Macfarlane, who plays Scotty Wandell on ABC's "Brothers and Sisters," will head the cast as F. Scott Fitzgerald with Jeremy Gabriel as Ernest Hemingway and Heather as Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald. Ian Whitcomb and his Bungalow Boys will accompany the play with an original score by Grammy winner Whitcomb.

"F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway. Zelda Fitzgerald," read The Jazz Age press notes. "Literary history's most intriguing characters. This sexy new play goes inside their minds to fantasize on the question of 'inspiration.' Punctuated by the pulsating beat of a live musical trio, The Jazz Age asks the compelling question 'Why do we do what we do?'"

Show times will be Thursday-Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 2 PM.



Tickets, priced $22-$28, are available by calling (323) 661-9827 or by visiting www.TheBlank.com. The Blank's 2nd Stage Theatre is located at 6500 Santa Monica Boulevard (on Theatre Row, between Highland and Vine at Wilcox) in Hollywood, CA.
