Keith Reddin's examination of the early career of Richard Nixon. Set in a suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel, a paranoid Dick Nixon is an idealistic young congressman who is ambivalent about resorting to a monumentally underhanded “dirty trick”. This was orchestrated by Nixon's conniving campaign official Roy Day against his Democratic opponent, Congresswoman Helen Gahagan Douglas—the so-called 'Pink Lady'. Nixon's victory launches his career as a politician. A Goodman Theatre co-production. An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring: Timothy Carhart as Nixon Harry Groener as Melvyn Gary Houston as Roy Leslie Lyles as Helen David Shapiro as Stan Directed by Michael Maggio.

Plays by Keith Reddin
For most people, an afternoon trip to the dentist is the very definition of hell. When Debs routine dentist appointment turns out to be a meeting with Lucifer himself, she bargains her way back to living with a promise to secure a certain number of souls. Naturally, she begins her scavenger hunt in the corporate sector—the Disney Corporation to be exact! Sharp and refreshing, Keith Reddin’s Synergy is an uproarious and wry look at life on the corporate ladder. An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring: Rosalind Chao as Jane Jeffrey Donovan as Roland Richard Kind as The Devil Alan Mandell as Sidney Ken Mars as Otto Joey Slotnick as Mark JoBeth Williams as Deb Directed by Gordon Hunt. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles in February of 2002. Featuring: Rosalind Chao, Jeffrey Donovan, Richard Kind, Alan Mandell, Ken Mars, Joey Slotnick, JoBeth Williams.
