L.A. Theatre Works, the radio play series recorded in UCLA's James Bridges Theater, announced a 2012-13 season Tuesday that offers recent Broadway offerings, classics with distinctive casting and less-well known works that will receive new attention.
On the schedule are "Red" by John Logan with Alfred Molina as artist Mark Rothko (which is opening at the Mark Taper Forum in August); "The Nightwatcher," written and performed by Charlayne Woodard (seen at the Kirk Douglas Theatre last fall); and Stephan Adly Guirgis' "The Mother.... With the Hat," with 2011 Broadway cast member Bobby Cannavale, but minus his cast mate Chris Rock.
The season also offers Chekov's "The Seagull" featuring Calista Flockhart, David Mamet's "Glengarry Glen Ross" led by original cast member Joe Mantegna, Terence McNally's "Lips Together, Teeth Apart" with Steven Weber and "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf" by Ntozake Shange. Jane Kaczmarek will reprise her off-Broadway role in "Kindertransport" by Diane Samuel.
