‘Suits’ Celebrates Kirk Douglas Theater’s 10th anniversary

Center Theater Group's Culver stage has seen many shows travel

The world premiere of the musical “The Black Suits” and Barry McGovern’s critically acclaimed Beckett piece, “I’ll Go On” will mark Center Theater Group’s 10th anniversaryof the Kirk Douglas Theater in Culver City.

With music and lyrics by Joe Iconis, rock tuner “The Black Suits” kicks off the 2013-14 season playing Oct. 27-Nov. 24. Following is solo show “I’ll Go On,” based on three Beckett pieces: “Molloy,” “Malone Dies” and “The Unnameable.”

Also world preeming are “different words for the same thing” by Kimber Lee. And returning again this year is Second City’s “A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens.”

The theater, which has housed more 70 productions since its inception in 2004, showcases a mix of  American classics and international pieces in addition to more edgier, avant-garde  performances.

Past shows that were originally performed by the theater group went to Broadway and Off Broadway, notably “‘Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” and Pulitzer Prize finalist “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo” (pictured).

“We stated early on that the Douglas would offer as broad a scope of theater as possible,” said CTG artistic director Michael Ritchie.

Three world premieres and seven total productions will be featured this season, with three Los Angeles solo artists also being presented in the DouglasPlus Program. These soloists will represent CTG at the Radar L.A. festival.
