Created by Trey Lyford, Geoff Sobelle and Steve Cuiffo, the show is directed by Paul Lazar. It was commissioned by Center Theatre Group and workshopped as Next Stop Amazingland in the DouglasPlus series in November 2009.
Here's how CTG bills it: "By turns fresh, silly and profound, Elephant Room is set in a basement rec room where three semi-pro conjurers hang out and practice their tricks with varying competence. These self-deluded illusionists are brimming with childlike wonder and undeserved self-confidence, but there is something mysterious about their Elephant Room. Things are not as they seem."
Performances of the piece that transforms the Douglas into "a mystical place of wonder and amusement" continue to Sept. 16.
Tickets are available by calling (213) 628-2772 or online at CenterTheatreGroup.org, in person at the Center Theatre Group box office at the Ahmanson Theatre or two hours prior to performances at the Kirk Douglas Theatre box office at 9820 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA.
