LOS ANGELES - April 17, 2014 - PRLog -- Two-time Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Susan Sullivan (Castle, Dharma & Greg, Falcon Crest) and David Selby (Dark Shadows, Falcon Crest) head the cast of Edward Albee’s searing work, directed by Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle award-winner Robin Larsen.

Agnes and Tobias’ suburban lives are shaken when they find themselves hosting unexpected houseguests — who plan to stay indefinitely. This stylish, daring and profoundly touching social comedy is full of memorable Albee bits, bountiful bursts of colorful invective and lacerating repartee.

“Albee is concerned with the human condition,” says Larsen. “That existential dread that we all deal with on a daily basis. Human relationships are so tenuous, even those with our closest family and friends — at the end of the day, we are alone. A Delicate Balance explores the unsettling side of what it means to be human.”

Performances of A Delicate Balance take place on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m., April 26 through June 15. On Sunday, April 27 only, the performance will be at 5 p.m. with no 2 p.m. matinee. Additional weeknight performances are scheduled on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on May 21 and June 4; and on Thursdays at 8 p.m. on May 8, May 15, May 29; and June 12. Tickets are $30, except for the opening night performance on Saturday, April 26 which is $45 and includes a gala reception with the actors. There will be three pay-what-you-can (minimum $10) performances on Friday, May 2; Thursday, May 8; and Wednesday, May 21. The third Friday of every month is wine night at the Odyssey: enjoy complimentary wine and snacks and mingle with the cast after the show. The Odyssey Theatre is located at 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd., West Los Angeles, 90025. For reservations and information, call (310) 477-2055 or go to www.OdysseyTheatre.com.
