The El Portal Theatre will present the West Coast premiere of Joni Fritz's new play Girl's Room, October 8-November 2. The production will star Carol Lawrence, Donna McKechnie, and Stephanie Wright Thompson and will be directed by Lynne Taylor-Corbett.

Set in the suburbs outside of New York City, Girl's Room centers on a young ballet dancer about to break into the big-time but has another kind of break -- an accident that could end her career.

The creative team will include Beowulf Borrit (sets), Jennifer Caprio (costumes), and Jason Kantrowitz (lighting). Taylor-Corbett was nominated for two Tony Awards for direction and choreography of Broadway's Swing! Her other Broadway credits include Jackie, Chess, and Titanic.
