International City Theatre Announces 2012 Season
The season will begin with Yasmina Reza's Tony Award-winning God of Carnage (January 24-February 19), translated by Christopher Hampton. The savagely caustic comedy is about two sets of Brooklyn parents who meet to discuss a playground altercation between their respective 11-year-old boys.
Randy Brenner will direct the West Coast premiere of The Fix (April 24-May 20), featuring book & lyrics by John Dempsey, with music by Dana P. Rowe. This hard-boiled rock musical is about the American political machine, and will feature musical direction by Darryl Archibald.
Ken Ludwig's Leading Ladies (June 5-July 1), is a comedy about two down-on-their-luck actors who dress as women to con a dying woman out of her millions.
In Michael Hollinger's Ghost-Writer (August 21-September 16), acclaimed novelist Franklin Woolsey has died. But his devoted secretary remains poised at her typewriter - waiting to channel the words that will complete his masterpiece.
The season will conclude with the musical revue Ain't Misbehavin' (October 9-November 4), based on the life and music of Thomas "Fats" Waller, conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr. and based on an idea by Murray Horwitz and Richard Maltby, Jr.
