L.A. Deli, a new comedy by Sam Bobrick, begins previews at the Marilyn Monroe Theatre in West Hollywood March 21 with an official opening the following evening.

Directed by Walter Painter, the limited engagement continues through April 27.

The cast features Rachel Boller, Scott Kruse, Jeffrey Landman, Gail Matthius, Phil Proctor and Darrin Revitz.

L.A. Deli, according to press notes, is a "series of comedic sketches that take place in a Hollywood delicatessen giving the audience a wicked and hilarious look inside show business. The cast of outrageous, shameless, and sometimes certifiable characters includes movie and TV producers, writers, directors, actors, their wives, ex-wives, and a very patient waitress named Kathleen. Some of the events portrayed actually happened to the playwright, some to his friends, and some to people he just happened to be sitting next to at lunch."



The production also has set design by Jeffery Eisenmann, lighting design by Michael Gend, costume design by Michael Mullen, music arranged and supervised by Larry Grossman and sound design by Chris Mosciatello. The stage manager is Liana Dillaway.

L.A. Deli is produced by Theatre Planners.

Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees Saturday and Sunday at 3 PM.

General seating admission is $20 for previews and $30 for regular performances. Tickets may be purchased online at plays411.com/ladeli or by calling (323) 960-7738.

The Marilyn Monroe Theatre at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute is located at 7936 Santa Monica Boulevard (one block west of Fairfax), in West Hollywood.
