The tumultuous lives of stand-ups get their due in the new comedy Against The Wall. Based on playwright Charlie Mount's real-life experiences working as a comedian in New York, this theatrical premiere follows volatile young funny man Jeff, who turns to hostility in front of the mic when life stops having meaning away from it. Worried he's heading for a crash, Jeff's best friend sets him up with a beautiful performance artist whose environmentalism masks her own deep well of pain and psychic distress. Together, these two angst-ridden souls begin knocking down each other's walls, uncovering truths about their own comedic sensibilities, and something like love. Learn More

It was great ! my granddaughter loved it - It was her fist "live" production - of anything - All the children were very much "into" the play -
Hope there are more shows for children - am surprised Los Angeles is lacking in such an obvious field of entertainment,.
Do think you should limit the age range. People should not be allowed to bring babies - we had 2 and they were very fussy - and a couple of toddlers running to and fro -

Quotes & Highlights
“Geared to youngsters, both Lloyd J. Schwartz’s book and the music and lyrics by Hope and Laurence Juber have unsophisticated charm and even a measure of wit. Jennings’ boisterous boy and Gallogly’s sweetly admonishing sister present an appealing foil. The ensemble enjoy themselves, and their energy is contagious.” —LA Weekly (Go!)
