‘Romance’ blooms in L.A.

Mamet's latest preems in H'wood

WHAT: The Mark Taper preem of David Mamet‘s “Romance” Sunday.

WHERE: The Los Angeles Times Courtyard, a shaded spot on the east side of the Ahmanson.

WHO: Joining the cast were helmer Neil Pepe, Mamet with wife Rebecca Pidgeon and the usual L.A. theater suspects — JoAnne Worley, Charlayne Woodard and Doris Roberts — plus a sprinkling of Mamet’s Hollywood fans, including Keith Carradine, Gordon Clapp, Brian Cox, Blythe Danner, Ted Danson with Mary Steenburgen, Tate Donovan, Hector Elizondo, Scott Foley, Dennis Haysbert, Marilu Henner, Helen Hunt, Arianna Huffington, Eric Idle, Val Kilmer, Camryn Manheim, Tony Shalhoub and Eric Stoltz.

THE SHOW MUST GO ON: “This is life in the theater,” said cast member Ed Begley Jr., hobbling on crutches due to a fractured pelvis from a bicycling accident.

“I said, ‘Please don’t fire me,’ but Neil Pepe and Mamet reblocked the play so I could sit down.”

Good thing it wasn’t “All Wear Bowlers” at the Kirk Douglas Theater.
