About this show

"The Year's Best!" (New York's Daily Journal). "An extraordinary piece of theatre!" (Record-Review). It's the West Coast premiere of Todd Susman's irreverent dramedy about life, death and life, an edgy, biting, bitter bash celebrating the comic side of suicide, prostitution and God. 40-year show business veteran, playwright Susman is best known as a performer for his roles in The Taking of Pelham 123, co-starring roles on six TV series, and on stage, as Wilbur Turnblad in Hairspray during the First National Tour and the subsequent year on Broadway, and at the Playhouse in Jerry Mayer's Almost Perfect. Locked and Loaded, Susman's first published play, stars stage and screen personalities Paul Linke (CHiPS, Time Flies When You're Alive), Andrew Parks (Murder She Wrote, Summer Run, the cult-classic The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra), Tarina Pouncy (Lie to Me, Larry Crowne, Second City), Terasa Sciortino (Talkshow, Split Ends, Three Things-Cannes Short Film Corner) and Sandra Thigpen (The Ring, Quentin Tarantino's Curdled, Grey's Anatomy) and is helmed by award-winning director Chris DeCarlo (Aspirin and Elephants, Picon Pie, Love in Bloom), with incidental music by Grammy-nominated John Forster (Freaky Friday, How To Eat Like a Child). A not-to-be-missed theatre experience! Rated R.
