Announcing: The Moth Theatre presents The Blue Room

The Moth Theatre Presents David Hare’s
Directed by John Markland

Opens December 2, 2010 for 12 Performances Only

The Moth Theatre has announced their production of The Blue Room, David Hare’s 1998 play, which caused quite a sensation when it was first produced in London and subsequently on Broadway over a decade ago. Directed by John Markland, The Blue Room will open on December 2 and run for twelve performances only through December 19.

There is a common thread that links us all. Contact. Acceptance. Seeing, and maybe more importantly, being seen. Based on La Ronde by Arthur Schnitzler, The Blue Room offers a rotation of people spinning on this thread … each person, in his or her own way, expressing an honesty that gives birth to intimacy. The audience plays voyeur, witnessing just how fragile and elusive that thread can be. The Blue Room is for mature audiences only. It contains adult themes, language, and nudity.

The cast will feature (in alphabetical order) Lili Bordan, Scott Dunn, Alice Fulks, Pamela Guest, Justin Huen, Patrick Scott Lewis, James Mendoza, Jan Milewicz, Addison Timlin, and Kate Towne. The design team includes set by Benoit Guerin, lighting by Jenna Pletcher, costume design by Regine Linhares, sound design by Priscilla Watson, and video design by Brian Andrew Mendoza. The production stage manager is Melina Franks, and the producer for the Moth Theatre is Efrain Schunior.

The Blue Room is set to open on Thursday, December 2 at 8pm. The regular performance schedule is Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 6pm. Admission is $20; tickets are on sale now and may be purchased by visiting or There will be absolutely no late seating.

On Saturday evenings, the Moth invites patrons to stay and enjoy Night Light, a post-performance social hour with refreshments, live music and more.

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. Street parking is available.
