Piece by piece productions, Rising Phoenix Repertory and Rattlestick Playwrights Theater present the limited engagement, which began previews June 6 and will continue through July 14.
In addition to Buddeke (Gypsy, Superior Donuts), Chlumsky (So Help Me God, The Fabulous Life of a Size Zero) and Buell (Equus, The History Boys), the cast includes Hannah Cabell (A Man for All Seasons, Compulsion), Eddie Cahill ("CSI: New York," "Friends") and Jake Silbermann ("As the World Turns," Phaedra Backwards).
Here's how the play is billed: "The war in Vietnam is over and Brad, an ex-serviceman, lands in L.A. to start a new life. When he winds up trashed in Connie and Linda's kitchen after a wild night of partying, the three strike a deal for an arrangement that has hilarious and devastating consequences for everyone. Or are they non-consequences? Inspired by 1970s sitcoms, 1950s existentialist comedy, Chekhov, and disco anthems, 3C is a terrifying yet amusing look at a culture that likes to amuse itself, even as it teeters on the brink of ruin."
Piece by piece productions and Rising Phoenix Repertory presented David Adjmi's Elective Affinities Off-Broadway with Soho Rep earlier this season. His plays also include Stunning, Marie Antoinette, The Evildoers, Strange Attractors and Caligula.
