The West Side Waltz

July 2, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

By Ernest Thompson
Directed by Mary Jo DuPrey
June 25 – October 1
Forty-one years after its premiere at the Ahmanson Theatre, Academy Award winning writer Ernest Thompson (On Golden Pond) deconstructs his script for The West Side Waltz. In the world premiere of Thompson’s newly revised, heart-filled dramedy set during the tumultuous ’80s, Theatricum artistic director Ellen Geer; her sister, Melora Marshall; and daughter Willow Geer take on the roles of an aging concert pianist, her violin-playing spinster neighbor, and a would-be actress on New York’s Upper West Side.

A prologue discussion with the cast will take place before the show at 7pm on 8/27. Pay What You Will ticket pricing is available (cash only at the door) on 7/29.
