News   Sons of the Prophet Will Play the Blank Theatre; Casting Announced
Casting has been announced for The Blank Theatre’s Los Angeles premiere of Stephen Karam's Sons of the Prophet, which will begin previews Jan. 31 prior to an official opening Feb. 7.

Directed by Ovation Award winner Michael Matthews, the production will continue through March 15.

The cast comprises Ellen Karsten, Jack Laufer, Braxton Molinaro, Erik Odom, Irene Roseen, Adam Silver, Mychal Thompson and Tamara Zook.

Winner of the 2012 NY Drama Critics Circle, Outer Critics Circle and Lucille Lortel Awards for Best Play and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Sons of the Prophet, press notes state, "is a refreshingly honest take on how we cope with wounds that just won't heal. If to live is to suffer, then Joseph Douaihy is more alive than most. With unexplained chronic pain and the fate of his reeling family on his shoulders, Joseph's health, sanity, and insurance premium are on the line. In an age when modern medicine has a cure for just about everything, Sons of the Prophet is the funniest play about human suffering you're likely to see."

The production will also have set design by Rachel Watson, lighting design by Luke Moyer, costume design by Allison Dillard and sound design by Cricket S. Myers.

The stage manager is Marcedes L. Clanton, and Sons of the Prophet is produced for The Blank Theatre by Daniel Henning, Noah Wyle and Sarah A. Bauer. Tickets are $25 for previews and $30 for regular performances and may be purchased online at or via phone at (323) 661-9827. The Blank’s 2nd Stage Theatre is located at 6500 Santa Monica Boulevard (at Wilcox), in Hollywood.
