Judd Hirsch and Tom Cavanagh are to star in the Los Angeles premiere of the play "Freud's Last Session," producers announced Friday.
The limited engagement production of Mark St. Germain's stage drama will begin Jan. 11 and run through Feb. 10 at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center.
Hirsch plays psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud while Cavanagh plays author C. S. Lewis in the play, which is being directed by Tyler Marchant, who was director of the original New York production.
The off-Broadway premiere engagement of the show opened July 22, 2010. It ran for two years in New York and is also playing to sold-out houses at Chicago's Mercury Theatre, as well as in Buenos Aires, Stockholm and Dallas, the producers said. Additional productions are set to open this season in London, Mexico City, Sydney, Madrid, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Copenhagen, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Cleveland, Tucson and Honolulu.
