Transformed by "Circle Mirror"

Honorary Producer Dee Higby and director Sam Gold.
On Friday, January 14, First Night of Circle Mirror Transformation, the Julianne Argyros Stage was filled with subscribers and their guests, who watched mesmerized as five extraordinary actors portrayed ordinary students in an adult acting class.

Set in a smalltown community center, Annie Baker’s OBIE Award-winning play takes the students through a six-week class as they participate in a series of theatre games—exercises to help them grow as actors. In the process, they learn more than they bargained for about each other—and themselves.

After the show, Honorary Producers Larry and Dee Higby, together with First Nighters and their guests, gathered at Scott’s Restaurant and Bar to celebrate the production. Their glowing reviews anticipated the critical raves that appeared in the next few days:
“Delightful…pitch-perfect production…first-rate ensemble." – Los Angeles Times 
“Quirky, sensitive, touching and funny.” – Long Beach Press Telegram
“A tautly structured, macroscopic poem about the trajectories of ordinary lives.” – LA Weekly
“Absolutely fresh and original.” – StageSceneLA
