Brett Neveu’s “Detective, Partner, Hero, Villain” is a fast paced witty exploration of a raging crisis of faith in Detective Bradley Manners. It begins simply enough as we are quickly introduced to his partner, the super hero and a super villain, And then the fun begins as Detective Manners loses his grip and sinks into despair. But there is a bounce so it is an energetic and wild ride with a good ending. You can enjoy it all at the cozy but very nice NoHo Actors Studio, 5215 Lankershim Boulevard, North Hollywood, CA 91601.
You will get the wonderful experience of enjoying superb performances by all four of the principal cast members. Anthony Backman is Detective Manners. He comes with a distinguishing background in acting and for more detailed information you may visit his website at: www.AnthonyBackman.com. Bob Rusch is the Partner who also enjoys a strong theatrical background as well as work on the television show “Sons of Anarchy” and the feature film “Saving Mr. Bank.” Further details on Bob are available at: www.nowcasting.com/bobrusch. Paul A. Hicks is super hero “The Fantastic Phenomenon.” Paul is an imposing man well over six feet tall with magnetic eyes he employs magnificently in this show. Jeff Alan-Lee is the super villain “Supernova.” An NYU graduate Jeff’s theatrical background is long and rich.
When Director Jonathan Price brought these four superb actors together he created an utterly enjoyable presentation of Brett Neveu’s quirky play. Los Angeles in its stage name “Hollywood” is universally known as the motion picture capital of the universe. But we are blessed with an amazing number of community theatres. This particular production is a joint venture between “A Theatre Connection” and “Skypilot Theatre.” It is currently at the NoHo Actors Studio now through May 24th. It is a relatively short 70 minutes and thoroughly enjoyable. Try something different and go see it. You will thank me.
