News   LATW's Side Man, with Wood and Lahti, Begins May 12
The L.A. Theatre Works production of Warren Leight's Side Man, starring original cast member Frank Wood and Christine Lahti, begins performances May 12.

Stephen Sachs directs the jazz-kissed play that will run through May 16 as part of "The Play's the Thing" series at the Skirball Cultural Center.

Wood, who earned a Tony Award for his Broadway debut as Gene, repeats his performance alongside Golden Globe Award winner Lahti as Terry. The cast also features Garret Dillahunt, Kevin Geer, Joseph Lyle Taylor, Kyle Colerider-Krugh and Stephanie Zimbalist.

LATW describes the play as "a rich and moving tribute to a lost era of jazz and big bands, a time before the birth of rock 'n’ roll when jazz musicians were legends."

Michael Mayer directed the 1998 Off-Off-Broadway production of Side Man, which later transferred to Broadway and earned the Tony Award for Best Play. The play was also nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. As with all LATW productions, the play will be recorded and broadcast on LATW's nationally syndicated radio theatre series, "The Play's the Thing."

For tickets to any of "The Play's the Thing" productions at the Skirball Cultural Center, 2701 N. Sepulveda Boulevard, call the L.A. Theatre Works box office at (310) 827-0889.
