Further Casting Announced For Douglas Play


Further casting has been announced for Samuel Beckett's masterful "Endgame," directed by one of Beckett's most celebrated interpreters Alan Mandell at Center Theatre Group's Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City April 24 through May 22.

The opening is scheduled for May 1.

Mandell ("Waiting for Godot," "The Price" and "The Cherry Orchard" all at the Mark Taper Forum) will also perform at the Douglas with Barry McGovern ("I'll Go On" at the Douglas;

Rick Cluchey was originally announced as part of the cast. Sadly, Mr. Cluchey passed away in December of 2015.

In the absurdist world of "Endgame," somewhere between existence and death, four characters, Hamm (played by Mandell), Clov (McGovern), Nagg (Greene) and Nell (Rae and Byrd), cling to sanity while performing daily rituals, sometimes comically, as they wrestle some sort of order from the cyclical, repetitious, seeming nothingness of life.

Tickets are available online at, by calling CTG Audience

Services at (213) 628-2772, in person at the Center Theatre Group box office (at the Ahmanson

Theatre at the Music Center in downtown Los Angeles) or at the Kirk Douglas Theatre box office two hours prior to performances.
