L.A. Theatre Works records ‘Salomé’ featuring Marsters, Steele and Vickery

See also

Oscar Wilde fans are in for a treat. L.A. Theatre Works is recording his infrequently performed “Salomé.” James Marsters, Kate Steele and John Vickery head the cast when L.A. Theatre Works presents Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece, the story of the exotic and seductive young woman whose obsession with revenge leads this Biblical tale to its inevitable end — the beheading of Jokanaan (John the Baptist), and Salomé’s infamous dance of the seven veils.

The last of Wilde’s plays to be produced in his lifetime, “Salomé” was fraught with scandal and considered so provocative that it was frequently banned.

Directed by Michael Hackett the cast also features Rosalind Ayres, André Sogliuzzo, and Matthew Wolf. Susan A. Loewenberg produces.

All performances will be recorded live in front of an audience (without sets or costumes) to air on L.A. Theatre Works' syndicated radio theater series, which broadcasts weekly on public radio stations nationwide (locally, in Southern California, on KPFK 90.7 FM) and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.

“Solomé records performances 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, January 30 and 31, 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday, February 1 and 4 p.m. Sunday, February 2. Tickets are $15-$60. Call 310-827-0889 or visit www.latw.org.
