"Terrific!...a great nite out at the theatre!" exclaims Sunshine Magazine. Live on stage it's television star Esai Morales and renowned actor/director Mark Rydell (On Golden Pond, The Rose) starring in Brian Connors' hilarious, touching and often outrageous evening of plays. PARK STRANGERS: a fading stage star is paired with a younger actress in a commercial for an offensive corporation. Offensive, yes, but what can you do when you both need the money?! SWANS: a woman presses her man to find out when he'll marry her. It's the little things that bother him…like her collection of swans. OXYMORONS: J and Joey meet in the park. The two brothers have far more in common than at first appears...like their women. Past weekly guest celebrities have included Ed Asner and George Segal, with Allan Miller (Judging Amy, General Hospital) starting July 21. The cast also includes stage and screen personalities Susan Ateh, Beege Barkette, Chihiro Kawamura and Dahlia Waingort. Writer-director Brian Connors most recent screenplay, Good Men, garnered Ed Asner and Mark Rydell Best Actors New Media Film Festival awards. A staged reading, rated R for some really raunchy language. Enjoy a "delightful evening" (JoeStraw#9), a Guest Production at Santa Monica Playhouse.
