Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab

Individual Tickets On Sale Now!

The evening will start with a special cocktail reception and dinner under the tent on the Bank of America Plaza. Guests will then join us in the new Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab for the opening night of Larissa FastHorse’s The Thanksgiving Play. This groundbreaking satire on the politics of representation throws together the overly-ambitious drama teacher, her yoga-bro actor friend, a history teacher with playwriting aspirations, and an “ethnically-ambiguous” L.A. actress to devise their Thanksgiving play, only to find themselves quickly sabotaged by myth, confounded by history, and drawn into a hysterical project of dramatic pretzel-twisting. The Thanksgiving Play features OTC favorites such as Parker Drown (A Chorus Line), David Schlumpf (Elf the Musical), and Dani Stoller (The Humans).
