A or B? written by Ken Levine, directed by Andrew Barnicle, world premiere comedy; Sparks start flying when Abby and Ben meet during a job interview for a high-profile marketing job. But are they destined to become lovers or co-workers? Is it possible to be both? This world premiere is two romantic comedies in one, turning romance on its head as we see Abby and Ben travel down two parallel lives, pitting destiny vs. choice, love vs. career, ambition vs. passion and man vs. woman.
Abbie Morgan: female, 25-35, smart, attractive, spirited, and fun. Must have great comic timing
Ben Steele: male, 25-35, smart, good looking, with an easy charm. Must have great comic timing.
Class by Charles Evered, west coast premiere. Elliot, a veteran acting teacher in New York City who is visited in his studio by Sarah, a mysterious young starlet. In the course of their work together, they learn more about themselves than acting - and in doing so change each others’ lives forever.
