It’s the rarest of opportunities: to witness an actor of this caliber give his definitive performance on the intimate Douglas stage.
Two-time Academy Award-nominee John Hurt (The Elephant Man, Alien, Harry Potter) makes his Los Angeles stage debut in a role he has crafted on London, Dublin and New York stages over the past decade.
- New York Post
As Krapp takes stock of his life unspooling on a battered old tape recorder, we become privy to a lifetime of wisdom. The New York Times praised Hurt for “fully inhabiting the corroded soul of the unforgettable character.”
If you loved Beckett’s hugely popular Waiting for Godot at the Mark Taper Forum, don’t miss this mesmerizing production of his work directed by Michael Colgan, artistic director of Gate Theatre Dublin, one of the truest sources of the Irish theatrical tradition.
Listen to a collection of memories from all types of people at various ages. In the spirit of Krapp’s Last Tape, we invite you to anonymously tape your very own “tale of a lifetime” in our private recording booth and listen to memories recorded by audience members of different generations. To record your memory, call 213.972.4441 or visit the Kirk Douglas Theatre.
Come Early, Stay Late- Engage & ParticipateAt the Kirk Douglas Theatre, the experience begins the moment you enter the lobby. After the show, grab a pint at the bar and join our Concierge staff in the lobby for a robust discussion of the play with your fellow theatre goers.
