Former "Three's Company" star Richard Kline directs Actors Forum Theatre's opening production of its 25th season, The Great Sebastians, a play set in 1948 and dealing with a couple of entertainers touring Europe with a mind-reading act. While in Czechoslovakia they are invited to the home of a Communist Party leader who wants to uncover a plot against him. They find themselves enmeshed in a complicated and dangerous political intrigue.
The Great Sebastians opens Oct. 29 for a six-week run.
Kline played the hormonally unbalanced Larry on "Three's Company." He just completed work on an independent feature, "Warm Blooded Killers," for Ironheart Films, directed by Barry Levinson. His co-star was Joe Mantegna.
Kline directed KNBC-TV weatherman Fritz Coleman in It's Me Dad!, a one-man show which was taped at the Coronet Theatre and aired on KCET recently. The play also enjoyed a long run at AFT last year.
