This play is a TON of fun -- come ready to laugh! All of the actors are top notch, the production value is very high (VERY realistic set), and it's just a smart show. And if YOU're smart too, you'll go see it.

More Information


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.”
