Opus

Sex, drugs and chamber music! Jonathan Adams (Bones), Adam Arkin (Chicago Hope), Jere Burns (Justified, Burn Notice), Steven Culp (Desperate Housewives) and Liza Weil (The Gilmore Girls, Scandal) star when L.A. Theatre Works records Michael Hollinger’s humorous and compelling behind-the-scenes look at a “high-strung” string quartet. A world-famous ensemble threatens to unravel when its most talented member goes missing just before a high-profile performance at the White House. A young woman is hired to take his place — but with only days left to prepare, the musicians must navigate the creative, yet often disharmonious, path of creating a masterpiece. Hollinger skillfully establishes how four very distinct personalities must, in the pursuit of artistic excellence, synthesize with one another to create one seamless sound. All performances will be recorded to air on L.A. Theatre Works’ syndicated radio theater series, which broadcasts weekly on public radio stations nationwide (locally, in Southern California, on KPFK 90.7 FM) and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org. May 17-20; James Bridges Theater at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film, Television, 235 Charles E. Young Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90095; $15-$49; 310.827.0889; www.latw.org; Join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/LATheatreWorks; follow us on Twitter @latheatreworks
