Summary

In a comic whirlwind of high style, La Bête tells the story of Elomire, a 17th century French playwright, and his touring acting troupe who have come to lead the high life due to the patronage of the fickle Prince of Conti. Sparks fly when Valere, a swaggering braggert with delusions of artistic grandeur, becomes the Prince's choice to join Elomire's troupe. It is a battle of wits and witticisms as the two face off in this outrageous commentary on the nature of art and the artist in society.An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Michael Cumpsty, Jen Dede, Alice Hirson, John de Lancie, Matt Letscher, Robert Machray, Tom McGowen, Amy Pietz, Andre Sogliuzzo and Sarah Zimmerman.
