Presented by L.A. Theater Works, "The Actor Retires" is a comic one-act play that follows the life of a former actor who has decided to give up drama forever and become a furniture-maker. Packed with nonstop laughs, "The Actor Retires" stars such names as D.W. Moffett, Bruce Norris, and Lucy Childs. The lead in particular gives a great performance and drives home the play's hilarious antics. Dramatists and friends of actors alike will both appreciate Bruce Norris' witty one liners and goofy situations.

Breezy fun for theater-lovers.

An Actor Retires is great fun for anyone who knows people in the theater. The angst an actor puts himself through is shown in several hilarious vignettes. All the acting in this work is first-rate, and the leading man is superbly funny. My only quibble is that this is really an one-act play, so it goes by very quickly.
