This week on L.A. Theatre Works, it’s The Graduate, starring Matthew Rhys and Kathleen Turner, adapted from the novel by Charles Webb.
About the play:
A fresh-faced college grad returns home, diploma in hand, to seek an answer to that age old question: Now what? Lacking any clear career path, he falls prey to the original cougar, the predatory Mrs. Robinson, wife of his father’s business partner. But it’s Mrs. Robinsons’ daughter who captures his heart.
This is an L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Kathleen Turner as Mrs. Robinson; Matthew Rhys as Benjamin Braddock; Bruce Davison as Mr. Braddock; John Getz as Mr. Robinson; Jamison Jones as Hotel Clerk and others; Devon Sorvari as Elaine Robinson; Linda Purl as Mrs. Braddock and others.
Adapted for the stage by Terry Johnson, based on the novel by Charles Webb and the screenplay by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry. Directed by John Rubinstein.
Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles in December, 2010.
