The Porters of Hellsgate present Shakespeare and Wilkins’s PERICLES
Pericles will open April 29 at the Whitmore-Lindley Theatre in North Hollywood for a 6-week run. Tickets and showtimes are available here.
Pericles marks the 24th Shakespearean production mounted by The Porters of Hellsgate. Artistic Director Charles Pasternak returns to the directing chair and Leon Russom to the boards. They last worked together on 2014s production of Henry V, a critical and audience hit, which received Ovation, Broadway World, and Valley Theatre Award nominations.
Mr. Russom is perhaps most famous for throwing a coffee mug at Jeff Bridges’ head as the Sheriff of Malibu in the Coen Brothers’ “The Big Lebowski,” but LA theatre-goers and critics have been able to enjoy his brilliant stage career firsthand. Highlights include award nominated performances in Buried Child, Henry V, And Neither Have I Wings to Fly, Endgame, and Juno and the Paycock. He first joined The Porters as Gloucester in King Lear, alongside Larry Cedar in the title role. Most recently, he took on the role of Lear himself with Loft Ensemble.
