"Justin Rush is Hollywood’s biggest movie star who has it all," according to press notes, "a beautiful, devoted wife, more money than he knows what to do with, a huge summer action blockbuster set to open - but he’s finding it harder to keep his secrets secret in our TMZ, twitter-addicted, celebrity-obsessed culture. Justin's wife Amanda, (rumored to be under some sort of 'contract'), is getting frustrated by the growing questioning of her husband’s sexuality and the endless scrutiny about their 'alleged' arrangement. When Chris Andrews, his publicist’s assistant and Mitchell Matthews, her old high school sweetheart (and now tabloid photojournalist), enter their lives, things start to get complicated. What if the rumors aren't true? But if they are...will any major movie star ever come out, or will they continue to retreat into the closet for career’s sake? Someone has to go first…will it be Justin Rush?"

Tickets are $34.99 for all performances. Previews are $25. For tickets call (323) 957-1884 or visit www.celebrationtheatre.com.
