The Los Angeles-based theater company, Burglars of Hamm, presents a reading of The Behavior of Broadus at The Kirk Douglas Theatre this weekend (Sept. 17-18).
Comprised of four CalArts alumni, Carolyn Almos (Theater MFA 93), Matt Almos (Theater MFA 93), Albert Dayan (Theater MFA 94) and Jon Beauregard (Theater BFA 91), the award-winning company is a writing and performing partnership that’s been creating original comedies since 1998.
In 2010, the group received a commission from L.A.’s Center Theatre Group (Ahmanson/Mark Taper Forum/Kirk Douglas Theatre) to create the new show.
From the Burglars of Hamm’s website:
Complete with lab rats, romance and music, The Behavior of Broadus, tells the incredible, sort-of-true story of John Broadus Watson, the father of both behaviorism and modern advertising.
Directed by Stefan Novinski, the cast of The Behavior of Broadus features Hugo Armstrong (Theater BFA 98), Rebecca Metz, William Salyers, Tim Sheridan, Devin Sidell, Graham Skipper, Michole Brianna White (Theater MFA 91) and Matt Wolpe, as well as music direction by David O (aka David Ossmann, Theater BFA 92) and choreography by Ken Roht.
