This weekend, beginning July 4, L.A. Theatre Works will air its production of The Devil’s Disciple by George Bernard Shaw, starring Richard Dreyfuss, Bruce Davison, Pat Carroll and Lisa Pelikan. The broadcast can be heard locally in Southern California on Saturday from 10pm to midnight on KPCC 89.3 FM, and can also be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.
Shaw stands “do or die” melodrama on its head in this tale set during the American Revolution. A young hero who disdains heroism makes the ultimate sacrifice for honor and country. The broadcast includes interviews with theater directors Ethan McSweeny and Bill Largess, both of whom have staged recent productions of Shaw’s play.
