This year, MANN SHOW 2009 presents the world-premier of the play, BRICK.
Drama Coach Chris White is adapting the screenplay of writer/director Rian Johnson's 2005 film of the same name. (Johnson's next film, THE BROTHERS BLOOM, stars Adrien Brody, Rachel Weisz, and Mark Ruffalo, and is set for a January 16 US theatrical release.)
BRICK, a gritty and provocative thriller, follows loner Brendan Frye as he untangles the mystery of how the girl he loves turns up dead. Along the way, Brendan plunges into the dark and dangerous social strata of rich girl Laura, intimidating Tug, addled Dode, drama queen Kara, and the ominous Pin. USA Today calls BRICK, "a clever, twist-filled, whodunit." Rolling Stone says, "A spellbinder! It pins you to your seat."
The show runs two weekends, March 26 through April 4.
