Editorial reviews

The third full-length play by Kenneth Lonergan centers around Jeff, the doorman of a Manhattan apartment building; his boss, William; and Bill and Dawn, two police officers. In Lobby Hero, Lonergan has an impressive ability to write flawed characters searching for connection, and ponders questions of morality, which should be of no surprise to fans of his acclaimed films You Can Count On Me and Margaret. The LA Theatre Works cast of Tate Donovan, Cedric Sanders, Emily Swallow, and Michael Weston is an exceptional foursome, teasing out Lonergan's humor and compassion with their spirited, graceful performances.

Publisher's summary

Playwright Kenneth Lonergan has made a career of creating characters whose considerable flaws often get in the way of their good intentions. In Lobby Hero, two menial security guards are embroiled in an unexpected family fiasco… and the local beat police are divided by their own romantic and political allegiances.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Tate Donovan as Bill; Cedric Sanders as William; Emily Swallow as Dawn; Michael Weston as Jeff.

Directed by Bart DeLorenzo. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles, in June 2011.
