We have less control than we think over who we fall in love with. Dinner With Friends meets La Cage aux Folles in this fanciful gender-bending soufflé about a pair of ex-spouses and their new mates. When the four get together for the first time in years, a delightful mess of romantic complications ensues. Terri Hanauer directs this world premiere of The Way You Look Tonight, which was written by Peter Lefcourt (who won an Emmy for his writing on Cagney & Lacey). Playing a cameo role and acting as catalyst to some of the action is ... a pair of Fluevog shoes. Because everyone knows you can never underestimate the power of cool shoes when it comes to matters of the heart. Learn More

The “dream team” of Los Angeles Theatre has tapped a young local playwright, Matthew Leavitt, for their next project. Multi-award winners Del Shores, Linda Toliver, Gary Guidinger, and Dámaso Rodriguez are proud to announce the upcoming staging of The Boomerang Effect, a world premiere production.
Del Shores, the Southern-loved writer/director/producer, shares how “it’s exciting to find a new, young voice in theatre. Matthew Leavitt’s new play is that!”
Five bedrooms. Five couples. One chain of well-intentioned disasters in this new comedy that peeks under the covers.
“_The Boomerang Effect _is essentially a fancy academic term for describing cause-and-effect, but what particularly fascinated me about the principle was how various fields of study and professions adopt it in very different ways. The concept of one single principle being utilized so differently by so many different fields made me think about the play’s five couples, and the universal complications in their sexual relationships despite the differences in scenario and detail. But really…it’s a comedy about sex.”
