WEST COAST PREMIERE AT THE KIRK DOUGLAS THEATRE
Performances Run August 22 through September 16, 2012
Tickets go on sale Thursday, July 26 for “Elephant Room” at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. Bringing pure, unadulterated fun and transforming the space into a mystical place of wonder and amusement, “Elephant Room” runs August 22 through September 16, 2012. The opening is set for August 26.
The West Coast premiere of this “enchantingly goofy collaboration” (Alexis Soloski, Village Voice) by Trey Lyford, Geoff Sobelle and Steve Cuiffo will star magicians Louie Magic, Daryl Hannah and Dennis Diamond, and is directed by Paul Lazar.
By turns fresh, silly and profound, “Elephant Room” is set in a basement rec room where three semi-pro conjurers hang out and practice their tricks with varying competence. These self-deluded illusionists are brimming with childlike wonder and undeserved self-confidence, but there is something mysterious about their Elephant Room. Things are not as they seem. “It gets weird, but it’s an enjoyable, laugh-out-loud kind of weird,” said Gwendolyn Purdom, of the Washingtonian. Eric Grode of The New York Times said, “. . . their lovable-loser shtick as well as their nifty skills help turn ‘Elephant Room’ into one of the coolest places in town."
