First and foremost, if you can't deal with a glimpse of full frontal male nudity and a topless woman, don't go. If you can, this is a fun dark comedy that continues to get better as it goes.
Each of the actors play two parts, and they do such a good job you wonder "is that 'x' or another actor?
This is a very small theater - less than 75 seats - so every seat is a good seat. Parking is on the street, especially the other side of Lankershim, so be prepared to walk a bit or come early.
At 55+ our group was by far the oldest group in the audience, and my 81 year old aunt had as good a time and enjoyed the play as much as the twenty-somethings in the audience.
Quotes & Highlights
“No doubt about it — this backstage comedy will have Hollywood’s actor-types howling with laughter at themselves.” —Blade Magazine

“Perfect … expertly accomplished … only A Midsummer Night’s Dream has a more fantastic premise.” —_Backstage West _
Days before it’s set to open a play, a small theater company learns it doesn’t have the rights to perform the show and must scramble to come up with an all-new production — that utilizes the same actors, set and even a kissing scene. A character-driven comedy populated by drama queens, aspiring starlets, surfer dudes and dedicated professionals, Doubting Thomason takes the audience behind the scenes for a funny peek at life on the other side of the curtain.
