Casting has been announced for the upcoming edition of Dennis Hensley’s The MisMatch Game, the show the Los Angeles Times calls, “witty, ribald … an adventure in surrealist era bending.” The side-splitting parody of the 70s game show returns to the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre for two nights only, Friday, March 11 and Saturday, March 12 at 8pm.
Host Dennis ‘Gene Rayburn’ Hensley will be joined onstage by a panel of some of LA’s most creative, hilarious, and demented comic minds. The cast for Friday 3/11 is set to include Willam Belli as Jessica Simpson, Danny Casillas as Reba Areba, Dante as Jack Nicholson, Maile Flanagan as Danny Bonaduce, Rebekah Kochan as Pamela Anderson, and Amy Phillips as Teresa Guidice. On Saturday 3/12, the scheduled cast is Julie Brown (role TBA), Nicol Paone as Arianna Huffington, Felix Pire as Ricardo Montalbán, Chris Pudlo as Juliette Lewis, Tom Lenk as Zooey Deschanel, and Craig Taggart as Bette Midler.

The MisMatch Game regularly fills the house at its irregularly scheduled gigs at the Renberg Theatre. Audiences keep coming back for the razor’s-edge improv and the racy, anarchic, and decidedly un-PC wit and wildness. The Advocate honored The MisMatch Game with a “10 Best Theatre” citation that said, “This recurring Los Angeles happening re-imagines the ‘70s TV game show The Match Game with full-camp press and excellent sub-lebrity impersonations.”
General admission tickets are $15 and may be purchased online at www.lalgbtcenter.org/theatre or by phone at (323) 860-7300. Net proceeds from all ticket sales will support the full range of free and low-cost programs and services offered by the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre is located at the Village at Ed Gould Plaza, 1125 N. McCadden Place (one block east of Highland, just north of Santa Monica Boulevard), in Hollywood, 90038. Free onsite parking is available.
