This fall, LOCAL Theater Company, in collaboration with co-producer The Dairy Center for the Arts, presents its inaugural full production of a play-- Michael Mitnick's "ELIJAH: An Adventure"-- the audience favorite from last March's LOCAL Lab reading series.
"ELIJAH: An Adventure" is Michael Mitnick's 16-character, multimedia, epic romp about a broke piano student from Brooklyn who becomes an accidental Don Juan in Paris of the 1920's. Directed by LOCAL Theater Company Artistic Director Pesha Rudnick, the cast includes Rachel Fowler, Mare Trevathan, Matthew Blood-Smyth, Barbra Andrews, Leah Watson, Lauren Dennis, Chris Kendall and others TBA.
Michael Mitnick is among the most successful new playwrights in the nation. Currently, his commissions include the book for "Animal House: The Musical" (featuring music by Bare Naked Ladies); and the play "Ed, Downloaded," opening at the Denver Center Theatre Company in January, 2013.
Pesha Rudnick is a Boulder-based director of national renown. Currently, she is the Associate Director of the premiere of Eve Ensler's "Emotional Creatures" now at Berkeley Repertory Theatre.
