The Geffen Playhouse's current season will not occur entirely at the 499-seat Brentwood Theatre, as initially announced.
Two productions next year will be at the 1,400-seat Wadsworth Theatre, on the same Veterans Administration campus that houses the Brentwood. And those plays are the season's only solo shows -- the two that might seem best suited to the intimacy of a smaller space.
"Golda's Balcony," a transfer from Broadway starring Tovah Feldshuh as onetime Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, was already headed for the Wadsworth before the Geffen decided to add it to the season.
Wadsworth and Brentwood operators Richard Willis and Martin Markinson also run the 683-seat New York theater where the play last week marked its 400th Broadway performance. They picked the Wadsworth as "Golda's" L.A. venue because "we had to have more seats to make the economics work." Willis says.
