Nick Stabile stars in "The Trip Back Down"
Rare revival of John Bishop’s Broadway drama about a once-great NASCAR racer
“Bobby needed courage to leave Mansfield to pursue a racing career, and now he needs to find the courage to come back – to face the friends and family he abandoned, to face living, to face himself,” explains director Terri Hanauer. “It’s as if he’s racing for his life. His memories rush at him like cars racing by. Everything that happens is either ‘fuel’ or a ‘pit stop.’ He needs to get his life in focus, to get to the finish line.”
“Not many people in L.A. know about this play because it hasn’t been done here since 1998,” says Stabile. “It’s a classic, a great piece.”
The Trip Back Down opens on Friday, Feb. 21 continuing through March 29 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Preview performances take place Feb. 13-20 on the same schedule. General admission is $25; full-time students with ID are $15; previews are $15. The Whitefire Theatreis located at 13500 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.
