BY DAVID AUBURN
DIRECTED BY JOHN MARKLAND

JANUARY 15 — FEBRUARY 15, 2015

ProofNow ready to unveil its newly remodeled space, the Moth Theatre Company is proud to announce its return with a new production of Proof by David Auburn, winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play. Directed by John MarklandProof will open on Thursday, January 15 and run through February 15 only.

The cast will feature (in alphabetical order) Amanda Brooks, John Cirigliano, Chris Marquette, and Felicity Price. Production design is by Justin Huen and Proof is produced for The Moth Theatre Company by Brenda Davidson.

Proof was originally produced by the Manhattan Theatre Club in May, 2000 and transferred to Broadway in October of that year. Along with Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, the play also won the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play, the Drama Desk Award for Best Play, and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.

On the eve of her 25th birthday, a troubled young woman’s brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician, dies. Now she must deal with her own volatile emotions, the arrival of her estranged sister, and the attentions of a former student of her father’s who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks the father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw the young woman into the most difficult problem of all: how much of her father’s madness—or genius—will she inherit?

Proof is set to open on Thursday, January 15 at 8pm. The regular performance schedule is Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm through February 15 only. Admission is $25 and may be purchased online at www.moththeatre.com or by phone at (323) 609-3676.

The Moth Theatre is located at 4359 Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, 90029. Entrance to the theatre is through the alley in the back, on Heliotrope.

PRESS RELEASE — LUCID DRAMATICS PRESENTS “REVIVAL” — WORLD PREMIERE PLAY OPENS JANUARY 18, 2015

LUCID DRAMATICS PRESENTS
REVIVAL
A WORLD PREMIERE PLAY BY
CARLA NEUSS

JANUARY 18 — FEBRUARY 7, 2015
ACTING ARTISTS THEATRE
IN WEST HOLLYWOOD

Revival LogoLucid Dramatics has announced a limited engagement of Revival, a world premiere play by Carla Neuss at the Acting Artists Theatre in West Hollywood. Directed by Neuss, Revival is set to open Sunday, January 18, 2015 at 8pm. The play will run for seven performances through February 7 only.

In Revival, Crispin’s bar hosts a panoply of characters — burnt-out pastor Fred, the master storyteller and cocktail connoisseur Tyler, and Jo, a jaded college student-turned-escort. While Crispin helps these patrons escape the mundane aspects of their lives through transformative drinks, he is secretly searching for a long lost liqueur that he hopes will bring about his own transformation. The play was the 2010 Oxford New Writing Festival winner.

Playwright/Director Carla Neuss is a Southern California native. She attended UC Berkeley majoring in English and Theatre. She interned at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, supporting the production of five world premiere plays. During her time there, she worked with Tony Award-winning director Sharon Ott and Pulitzer Prize-winner Amy Freed. Neuss earned her Masters Degree in English and Theatre at Oxford University. This year, she served as the producer of the 12th Annual Laguna Beach Music Festival. She has directed 11 plays in California, New York, and the UK. As a playwright, her work has been twice awarded in the Oxford New Writing Festival and she was a finalist for the Soho Theatre’s Verity Bargate Award for Emerging Writers.

The cast of Revival will feature (in alphabetical order) Victor Gurevich, Joseph Martone, Ben Moroski, James Svatko, and Adrienne Whitney. The scenic design is by Yuri Okahana, lighting design is by Jeff Brewer, costume design is by Brianna Ellis-Mitchell, and the stage manager is Vanessa Espino. Katelyn Schiller serves as associate producer.

Revival opens on Sunday, January 18 at 8pm and will continue on Saturdays, January 24, 31, and February 7 at 3pm and 8pm. General seating admission is $25 and tickets are available online at www.luciddramatics.com or by calling (949) 616-9726.
