This show could be wonderful to go to with a group of friends, just make sure you carpool (parking is a nightmare in the area).

The weather was Cold. I wore An evening formal dress, because I like to dress up for the theatre. This was a mistake however; you should wear something comfortable and warm.

Excellent production of one of my favorite playwrights: Horton Foote. We are given an in-depth insight into the characters of the play. The audience is able to feel what they are experiencing and share in their anguish. Cast portrays Foote's...continued

Description

The Young Man from Atlanta

by Horton Foote

Directed by: August Viverito

Starring: Dick DeCoit, Eileen Barnett and Hap Lawrence

1950 — a comfortable suburb of Houston.  The well-upholstered fortress of the Kidders’ lives is suddenly under siege, and from a number of directions. In the play’s first scene, Will Kidder loses his job of many years, just as he’s sunk a bundle into a new house.  And he and his wife Lily Dale have yet to come to terms with the death of their 37-year-old son and only child, Bill, who lived in Atlanta and drowned during a business trip to Florida.

Since Bill couldn’t swim, the death was a mystery.  Probably a suicide. Why?  His mother and father don’t have a clue. But the young man of the play’s title, who was Bill’s roommate and who is never actually seen, has words of comfort for the parents, if they choose to listen.

Co-Founders August Viverito and Gregory Blair concieved The Production Company to be dedicated single-mindedly to creating the highest caliber productions without encumbrances often found in the many more typical membership companies in Los Angeles. After serving on the Executive Board of one company and as Artistic Director for another, Viverito recognized that production quality was regularly forced to be less than optimal as resources often were drawn too thin by trying to offer classes, showcases, second-tier shows and the like. "Our shows will be the showcases, and our actors, writers and designers are expected to hone their crafts both within and outside the company. Our people will be kept busy producing.."
