Event Description

Bakersfield Mist, Stephen Sachs' smash hit comedy will return to the Fountain beginning Nov. 19. Sachs will again direct, with Jenny O’Hara (Transparent, The Mindy Project) and Nick Ullett (As the World Turns, The Big Bang Theory) reprising the roles they created.

Inspired by true events,
Bakersfield Mist is the story of an unemployed, chain-smoking ex-bartender living in a run-down California trailer park, who believes the painting she bought in a thrift store for $3 is really an undiscovered masterpiece worth millions. When stuffy New York art expert Lionel Percy arrives to evaluate the work, the result is a fiery and often hilarious debate over class, truth, value and the meaning of art.

“Stephen’s play has enjoyed success around the country and the world, so when Jenny and Nick became available, we jumped at the chance to bring it back,” says producer
Simon Levy.
 
Bakersfield Mist premiered at the Fountain in June, 2011, garnering glowing notices including a “Critic’s Choice” review in the Los Angeles Times which exclaimed “It's exhilarating in the extreme when a world premiere play strikes rich on every conceivable level."
 
Bakersfield Mist runs Nov. 19 - Dec. 12 with performances on Fri. and Sat. at 8 p.m.; Sun. at 2 p.m.; and Mon. at 8 p.m. (dark Monday, Nov. 21). Tickets $15$35; every Monday is Pay-What-You-Can. The Fountain Theatre is located at 5060 Fountain Avenue (at Normandie) in Los Angeles. Secure, on-site parking is available for $5. The Fountain Theatre is air-conditioned and wheelchair accessible. For reservations and information, call (323) 663-1525 or go to www.FountainTheatre.com.
