Kate Buddeke, Anna Chlumsky and Bill Buell are part of the world premiere of David Adjmi's comedy 3C, which began performances Off-Broadway June 6 under the direction of Jackson Gay.
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."
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).
