"Critics' Choice" - LA Times
A contemporary comedy with a scientific twist, Pacific Resident Theatre presents the West Coast Premiere of “Smart Love” by Brian Letscher. The Wachowski household is turned upside down when their son makes a surprise visit home, from MIT, with an unexpected guest. How far will human beings go in order to salvage love?
“So much in this brave new world of technology! No doubt I am severely over-stimulated,” says playwright Brian Letscher. “Irony apparent, I turn on my TV and click through a half-dozen streaming services trying to find the perfect viewing pleasure that will help me feel better and send me off to sleep. Further down that meta-hole, I find a documentary on the explosion of technology and the possibilities moving forward in this brave new world. I cannot fall asleep, but a year later I have this play.”
Our Cast includes Melissa Weber Bales(Rhinoceros,A View from the Bridge - LA Weekly Award nom - Leading Female Performance);Scott Conte(Big Love, Golden Boy, Anna Christie, Lulu, Rocket to the Moon, Lions, The Cherry Orchard); Zachary Grant(Rogue Machine’s Oppenheimer, Skylight Theatre’s Hostage, Odyssey Theatre’s Punk Rock.
