Former Passions Stars to Appear in World Premiere of Amber Benson's ALBERT HALL April 17 - May 11, 2003
HOLLYWOOD, CA March 27, 2003 The Lone Star Ensemble is pleased to announce that Natalie Zea (Gwen #2) and Travis Schuldt (Ethan #1) of "Passions" will be appearing in the upcoming world premiere run of ALBERT
HALL, a new comedy by "Buffy the Vampire Slayer's" Amber Benson. The production is scheduled to premiere this spring at The Complex on Santa Monica Blvd.
Workshopped last year by Benson and director James Kerwin as part of the
Blank Theatre Company's "Living Room Series," ALBERT HALL tells the story
of a 30-year-old who suffers a nervous breakdown and is forced to return
home to live with his overprotective mother. Blurring the lines between
life and art, reality and imagination, the play serves as a humorous,
absurd, and uniquely irreverent look at the state of theatre and its
place in modern culture.
Each Friday performance of ALBERT HALL will feature a special
question-and-answer reception with the cast and production crew after the
show. Refreshments will be served.
Known to audiences worldwide as "Tara" on the popular television series
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer," Amber Benson's screen credits include "Bye
Bye Love," "SFW," "King of the Hill," and "The Crush." She recently
wrote and directed the award-winning film "Chance" and the BBC's animated
production "The Ghosts of Albion."
Founded in early 2000, the Lone Star Ensemble is a donor-supported
non-profit corporation dedicated to the advancement of theatre arts
throughout the Los Angeles community. The Ensemble has received
widespread critical acclaim for its innovative multimedia adaptations of
the rare Shakespeare pieces "Venus and Adonis" (2001) and "Cardenio"
(2002), earning honors for Overall Production, Ensemble Performance, and
Directing on "Back Stage West" critic Paul Birchall's "Best of 2002" list.
ALBERT HALL is directed by James Kerwin. Ensemble cast members include Brian Stanton, Kathryn Gordon, Natalie Zea, and Travis Schuldt; with new Lone Star actors Johanna McKay, Brian Carpenter, Jamie Burns, April Adams, Shelley Isaacs, Sebastian DeVicente, Chandler Smith, and Angelique Mermet. Michelle Kraay stage manages.
