A stunning new product at the Los Angeles Gay Lesbian Center’s Davidson/Valentini Theatre.
Ira Levin’s Deathtrap, Tony Award-nominated for Best Play, receives its first Los Angeles revival in 20 years. It’s a wickedly funny, joltingly scary thriller with more twists than a rattlesnake.
“OMG, that was one of the best things I’ve ever seen at the Center!! They were so good!!” ~ Email from patron at first preview performance
It’s the first Los Angeles production in 20 years of Ira Levin’s masterpiece, the comedy-thriller, Deathtrap. One of the longest-running plays in Broadway history, the Tony Award Best Play nominee comes to the Center’s Davidson/Valentini Theatre for a six-week run!
Directed by award-winner Ken Sawyer (Dracula), the expert cast includes: Brian Foyster (The Lost Plays of Tennessee Williams)
Cynthia Gravinese (The Sonneteer)
Burt Grinstead (Esther’s Moustache)
Elizabeth Herron (Our Town)

This is not your mother’s Deathtrap; it’s the hottest, sexiest version ever! Filled with plays-within-plays-within plays, countless “heart-in-the-mouth” shocks, and a dose of dark humor, Deathtrap is expertly crafted to make you laugh and then jolt you out of your seat!
