About the Play:  Playwright Topher Payne takes us to Reno, Nevada in August of 1960.  It is 106 degrees outside. Filming on “The Misfits” is hopelessly behind schedule, with no end in sight. The Sierra Mountains are on fire, and Reno is in total blackout. Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift are playing board games with an accused murderess, and Marilyn Monroe is locked in the bathroom. The hilarious story of when Hollywood came to the Biggest Little City in the World, and everything went up in flames.

The Cast: The Only Light in Reno features the amazing ensemble cast of Rachel Sorsa (Twentieth Century and Don’t Dress for Dinner at GET) as Marilyn Monroe, Kate Donadio (Swell Party at GET, Wolves at Actors’ Express) as Elizabeth Taylor, Johnny Drago (Angry Fags at 7 Stages, Designing Women Live at The Process Theatre) as Montgomery Clift, Shelly McCook  (Tokens of Affection, The Invisible Man, Deathtrap at GET) as Libby Holman, and Elizabeth Genge  (The Stronger at Studio Theatre UCSB and Dancing at Lughnasa at Studio Theatre Pierce College) as Paula Strasberg.

Tickets:  Regular ticket prices for The Only Light in Reno range from $25 to $35 (Senior/Student discounts available for select performances).  “Recession-Buster” perimeter tickets may also be purchased for $10 or $15 based on availability.  Tickets are available now online at, or by calling the Box Office at 770-641-1260.
