We love Sunday shows because we can have a light meal, appetizers and a beverage or two before the 6pm show at one of the many restaurants across the train tracks. Kentro is yummy as is El Amerikano, best spicy margarita :-)

Quotes & Highlights

“Gable’s distinctive voice offers great promise… His lacerating piece evokes a tragicomic Kubrick-esque brilliance.” —Backstage West
“Wickedly funny stuff.” –Los Angeles_ Times_
__"A superhero parody with a lot more brewing beneath the surface." –LA Weekly


The Maverick Theatre’s 2006 season continues with the Orange County premiere of Jeremy Gable’s one-act superhero satire, American Way. Faced with disappointing comic book sales, benefit packages and retirement, four superheroes take a break in their secret cafe to reminisce about the good old days. But when an unexpected tragedy hits the town, they are forced to deal with being powerless for the first time in their lives.

American Way, whose first draft was penned shortly after the events of 9/11, was Gable’s first full-length play. Fueled by the sudden change in the nation’s attitude, Gable set out to write a play that captured that shift in tone, employing equal parts comedy and social metaphor. As world events changed, so did the play. American Way had its world premiere on October 1, 2004 at The Blank Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Gable also wrote the book, music and lyrics for the Maverick’s previous production Giant Green Lizard! The Musical.
