Las Vegas Spotlight: December 2007
Joy to the World
Watch out, there's a new kid in town! The Atlas Theatre, which began life in Seattle but is rebooting in Vegas, takes its first local bow with a production of Yasmina Reza's Tony-winning play Art (through December 15). The poignant comedy concerns three men whose friendship is shaken when one of them buys a white painting. Produced in conjunction with SEED Entertainment, Art will play at Threshold Dance Theater.
John Stark Productions' Sylvie (December 6-22), which is just off a run at the Odyssey Theatre in L.A., comes to the Onyx Theatre. Written by Jovanka Bach, the play is a psychological drama about four men who meet in a hospital waiting room and discover their shared connection to the title character, a young woman with a mysterious past. Sylvie is directed by John Stark and stars Gillian Brashear, John Combs, Danny Dolan, Brian Knudson, Joe Morrissey, Jaret Sacrey and Tanya Starcevich.
