It's a Leap of Faith for The Ahmanson


Leap of Faith

The 2010-11 season at Center Theatre Group’s Ahmanson Theatre will open with the world premiere of Leap of Faith, Sept. 26-Oct. 17, a musical based on the 1992 Steve Martin movie about a bogus faith healer who gets stranded in a small town. The production features a gospel-inspired score by Oscar-winner Alan Menken and will be directed and choreographed by Rob Ashford.

Following Leap of Faith comes the national tour of Next to Normal, Nov. 28 - Jan. 2, 2011. The musical, which was the surprise winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for drama, is the story of a suburban mother's psychological meltdown and the effects it has on her family. It won three Tony Awards in 2009, including one for the original score by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey.

Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage has its L.A. debut in a new production April 27 -May 29, 2011. The Tony-winning comedy follows the interactions between two couples brought together by a playground brawl between their respective children.

Closing the season is the 25th anniversary tour of Les Misérables June 17 -July 31, 2011, which features new staging. For more information go to www.centertheatregroup.com/.
