Santa Paula Theatre kicks off its new season with a wonderful production of Sharr White’s beautifully written psychological drama, The Other Place.
Producer Leslie Nichols has brought in the dynamic duo behind Flying H Theatre, Taylor Kasch and Cynthia Killion, to do their magic, and magic it is, with the tight ensemble work, extremely effective set, production details, cast and crew excellence, collaboration and execution of high order we’ve come to expect from all things Kasch and Killion.

Both scripts are smartly written, with sweeping structures yet tightly focused, giving both the kind of range and focus that great actors like to exploit. Both plays take a certain level of significant courage and commitment from their actors. A level that lessor talents dare to attempt.
