The Harold Clurman Lab Theater, the bi-coastal professional wing of the Stella Adler Studio of Acting and the Art of Acting Studio, is proud to announce its 2015 season: Great Falls by Lee Blessing, directed by Don K. Williams, will open January 22, 2015 in Los Angeles; Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov, directed by Tom Oppenheim, will open on February 5, 2015 in New York; Macbeth by William Shakespeare, directed by Don K. Williams, will open in May 2015 in Los Angeles; a new play to be developed by the Harold Clurman Playwrights Division will open in July 2015 in New York; and Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov, directed by Tom Oppenheim, will open in September 2015 in New York. All shows will offer a “pay what you can” ticket structure in an effort to make theater-going accessible to patrons of all income levels. The 2015 season will also be supplemented with several free events presented by the studio’s Harold Clurman Playwrights Division including readings of brand new plays by emerging writers. Artistic Director Tom Oppenheim said, “The studio aims to bring art right down to the street and offer it indiscriminately, that is to say, affordably, to the world. The Harold Clurman Lab Theater – on both coasts – is proud to announce our season and offer a ticket model that will encourage audience members to not only come to the theater but participate in vital community conversations.” The Lab Theater’s most recent work in Los Angeles includes the Ovation-Recommended and Ovation-Nominated run of Lebensraum by Israel Horovitz, and Ovation-nominated run of Long Way Go Down by Zayd Dohrn. In New York, the Harold Clurman Lab Theater recently presented the Edinburgh Festival Fringe First Award winning one-man show Mercy Killers by Michael Milligan and the off-Broadway production of Israel Horovitz’s Lebensraum. The Stella Adler Studio of Acting/Art of Acting Studio is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.
