The theatre has concessions.

The 6th Act presents a world premiere comedy, a heartfelt love letter to all things 99-seat theatre, The $5 Shakespeare Company, written by Matthew Leavitt (The Boomerang Effect) and directed by Joel Zwick (Director of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, George Gershwin Alone, and over 650 episodes of television).

In his first new play since the hit comedy The Boomerang Effect, award-winning playwright Matthew Leavitt earnestly and hilariously exposes the trials and tribulations of doing intimate theatre in LA. Through a fictional down-and-out Shakespeare company in Hollywood, this play examines the significance (and insignificance) of doing intimate theatre for little-to-no pay, when there are more people on stage than in the audience, in a town obsessed with film and television. Can art have meaning if it fails to connect to an audience, and likewise can our lives have meaning if we fail to connect with each other?

Directed by Joel Zwick (Director of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and over 650 episodes of television) and starring Kenajuan Bentley, Emerson Collins, Carolina Espiro, Natalie Lander, Luke McClure, Cindy Nguyen, Andy Robinson, Liza Seneca, Adam J. Smith and Jamie Zwick.
