The Los Angeles Times has named a work by North Dakota native and UND graduate Sam Anderson one of the Top Ten L.A. Theatre Productions of 2016. Edward Albee’s The Play about the Baby was produced by the Road Theatre Company last year.
Sam is the company’s artistic director. Edward Albee died last year.
The Times says of The Play About the Baby, “The superlative cast is spearheaded by the magnificent Anderson, a mesmerizing villain whose creepy affability will tickle your funny bone while raising your hackles.”
Audiences know him from 35 years of performances in television roles like “Justified,” “Lost” and “E.R.” His films include “Water for Elephants,” “Forrest Gump” and “La Bamba.” Credits and awards go on and on.
Those of us who have known Sam since his days at UND’s Burtness Theatre could not be more proud.
