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.
“It's as good as the original, maybe a tad better!”
LA TIMES “Director Ken Sawyer delivers … We want torture, we want mind games, we want to shriek. Done.”
LA WEEKLY “GO! Director Ken Sawyer has successfully added sensual passion to a play that usually succeeds solely through cleverness and scares.”
CULTURE SPOT LA “The current re-mounting of Ira Levin’s “Deathtrap” at the LA Gay & Lesbian Center’s Davidson/Valentini Theatre ranks as one of the best technically produced productions in Los Angeles; comparable with, and even surpassing, the production values of major theater venues.”
HUFFINGTON POST “The intimate, five-row theater center amplifies every lightning flash, creaking door and suspicious glance. The play, directed by Ken Sawyer, will make you gasp, laugh and probably sweat a bit.”
STAGESCENELA.COM “[Deathtrap’s] arrival at the Davidson/Valentini Theatre is exciting news indeed … a prime example of L.A. theater at its all-around finest … You’d be hard-pressed to find a more impressive oneset production design on this or any other coast.
STAGEANDCINEMA.COM “Astoundingly beautiful production … a Broadway-caliber showcase of technical and directorial talent … [Director Ken] Sawyer proves that he is a master with spooky theatrics.”
BROADWAYWORLD.COM “Whether you've seen Deathtrap or not, see this production!”
