In the 1980s, Cops ran in Los Angeles to great acclaim, starring two of the original cast members, Joe Mantegna and Dennis Franz.

As directed by Patrick Cannon, this production will have the audience close to the action by setting up an environment in which they will be part of the coffee shop set, making the experience even more intense.

Many of the actors are from Chicago. Patrick M. Walsh, who plays one of the detectives, (‘Barberson’) was the catalyst for this production. Everyone jumped at the chance to get involved. Patrick’s experience ranges from improv (with Jon Favreau, Horatio Sanz and Mike Myers) to features (the upcoming Upright Citizen’s Brigade movie, “Wild Girls Gone” with Amy Poehler).

The other actors are Adam Bitterman, Micheal Broughton, Paul A. Hicks, Laura Silverman (co-starring with Lisa Kudrow in HBO’s new series “Comeback Kid”), James Underdown, Mark Vallarta (‘Rolf’). Director Patrick Cannon is a Chicago native whose previous directing has received accolades from the LA Weekly and numerous film festivals. The playwright, Terry Curtis Fox is a TV/film veteran, a former journalist, and served for nine years on the Board of Directors of Writers Guild of America, west.

The role of ‘Omelette Eater’ will rotate, featuring actors from film, television and theater, including film and stage actor John C. Reilly and television’s Andy Richter.
