“Heisenberg” Previews At Mark Taper Forum
Preview performances begin on June 28th for “Heisenberg” at the Mark Taper Forum. Written by Tony Award and two-time Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens, “Heisenberg” opens July 6th and will continue through August 6th 2017. Directed by Drama Desk Award winner Mark Brokaw and featuring Tony nominee Denis Arndt and Tony, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Mary-Louise Parker, the creative team for “Heisenberg” includes Mark Wendland (scenic design), Michael Krass (costume design), Austin R. Smith (lighting design) and David Van Tieghem (sound design).
Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, Georgie (Parker) spots Alex (Arndt), a much older man, and plants a kiss on his neck. This electric encounter thrusts these two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game as “Heisenberg” brings to blazing, theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is human connection.

Master satirist Paul Rudnick blends a deep humanity with a honed sense of hilarity in this powerful and funny play about family and fame, the personal and the political, and the drive to stand up and speak out. Center Theatre Group’s Kirk Douglas Theatre; 9820 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232; Ample free parking and restaurants adjacent. Read more
