Three new plays and two classic dramas will be presented as part of Center Theatre Group’s 2015 season at the Mark Taper Forum, with the 48th season at the Los Angeles Music Center venue set to include revivals of Arthur Miller’s “The Price” and Martin Sherman’s “Bent,” plus two new comedies, “Immediate Family” from Paul Oakley Stovall and Brenden Jacobs-Jenkins’ “Appropriate,” as well as new drama “The Christians” from Lucas Hnath.
Phylicia Rashad will helm “Immediate Family,” a play she directed in Chicago two years ago. Moises Kaufman (“The Laramie Project,” “33 Variations”) directs “Bent,” while CTG’s production of “The Price,” directed by Garry Hynes (“The Beauty Queen of Leenane”), marks Miller’s centennial.
“The Taper’s 2015 season will be a happy confluence of the creativity and the artistry that playwrights, directors, actors and designers will bring to our beautiful Taper stage,” said Michael Ritchie, the artistic director of CTG. “Each of the plays is distinct in its own way but the plays add up to an exceptionally powerful season with a wide range of captivating stories to tell. I think our audiences will find the Taper’s 48th season to be an irresistible year in the theater.”
No casting for the 2015 season has yet been announced.
