Broadway Bound
August 2 - September 21
By Neil Simon
Directed by Jason Alexander

Actor/director Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) directs OTE favorite Allan Miller in Neil Simon's hilarious, heartwarming autobiographical play. Returning from World War II, Eugene teams up with his brother Stanley to break into the world of comedy writing, but a family crisis threatens to destroy their dreams. All the traditional Simon comic genius coupled with his deeply personal recollections of youth. A Tony Award winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist, "a beauty of a play." - Chicago Sun Times
Passion Play
January 25 - March 16
By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Bart DeLorenzo

Three Acting troupes rehearse a classical passion play at three key moments in history. DeLorenzo (Annapurna, Ivanov) guides a stellar cast from Queen Elizabeth's England to Hitler's Germany to Reagan's America as Tony Award and Pulitzer nominee Ruhl spins a funny, smart and lusty tale of morality and politics. "Extraordinary," "bold," and "inventive," raves The New Yorker.
Odyssey Theatre/Evidence Room co-production Los Angeles premiere.

Two Chicago cops are flung into a harrowing journey that will change the course of their lives.

Los Angeles premiere
A Delicate Balance
April 19 - June 1
By Edward Albee
Directed by Robin Larsen

Agnes and Tobias' precarious suburban lives are deeply shaken when they find themselves hosting unexpected houseguests. Stylish, daring, profoundly touching, and full of bountiful bursts of colorful invective and lacerating repartee. A play rarely licensed by Albee and a return of audience favorite Sam Anderson and director Larsen (A Fall to Earth).
White Marriage
June 2014
By Tadeusz Róźewicz
Directed by Ron Sossi

Artistic Director Sossi revisits his sparkling '70s mega-hit, a surreal, erotic coming-of-age fairytale set in Poland circa 1890 that follows a young girl's sweet, poignant emergence into womanhood and her frightened resistance to a pre-arranged marriage. Chekhov meets Fellini in an enchanting tragicomedy brimming with wit and charm and a large dose of the magical by one of Poland's most distinguished modern playwrights.
