Orpheus Descending, play in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES - Orpheus Descending, play. Gale Harold, Denise Crosby, Claudia Mason star in the rarely produced Tennessee Williams classic. Heating up Theatre/Theater (yes, that's it's name,) this winter, a modern version of the story of Orpheus and Eurydice set in the American South, is one of Williams' more complex plays. Guitar-playing drifter Val Xavier arrives in a small town looking for work and the opportunity to renounce his wild ways, where he meets Lady Torrance, a woman with a tragic past who longs for rebirth. Orpheus Descending explores the power of passion, art, and imagination to redeem life and return it to meaning. Orpheus Descending - Gale Harold (Queer as Folk), Denise Crosby (Star Trek TNG), and cover girl-turned-actress Claudia Mason (Vogue, Elle, W, Cosmopolitan) head the cast of Tennessee Williams' classic.
