"Orange Is the New Black"'s Elizabeth Rodriguez and "The Affair"'s Josh Stamberg star in this funny, thought-provoking tale of a local newscaster who -- thanks to a series of unexpected epiphanies -- becomes an accidental prophet to his increasingly fanatical viewers. Charlie Duff is a burnt-out TV anchorman who, in a moment of grief after the loss of his father, offers a prayer at the end of one of his nightly broadcasts. Soon this off-the-cuff addition becomes a trademark, with Charlie offering a new prayer to conclude each telecast. But even as his prayers inspire millions, a still-doubtful Charlie struggles to reconnect with his alienated family. L.A.'s groundbreaking Geffen Playhouse stages the West Coast premiere of this "smart and intriguing" ("Boston Globe") comedy-drama by Stephen Belber, a writer whose work ranges from Broadway ("Match") to prime-time TV ("Law & Order: SVU").

Is there any torture as sharp, any prison as confining, any punishment as cruel, as regret? For, although Prisoner 5863 is locked down in "extreme isolation," he really isn't isolated enough. Regrets small and large crowd his mind as he sorts through the decisions that cost him his name and his freedom. In "5863", a powerful solo piece written and performed by Rudi Stroebel, one man struggles to puzzle together pieces of a shattered life. Whether he can find some wholeness and peace in the darkness of his cell (and his mind) is the driving question behind this remarkable, enthralling new work. Angela Grillo and Dominique Sire direct at Eclectic Company Theatre. [less-]
