An explosive pairing of actors... Ms. Parker is giving her best stage performance since her Tony-winning turn as the hallucination-prone math genius in 'Proof', 16 years ago.

Why See Heisenberg?

Direct from Broadway

Direct from its critically praised Broadway run in late 2016, this explosive drama makes its way to Los Angeles for its West Coast Premiere, with stars Mary-Louise Parker and Dennis Arndt reprising their roles. Produced by Manhattan Theatre Club, it is the second work by award-winning British playwright Simon Stephens to make it on the Great White Way, following his stomping, Tony-winning triumph, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time.

Starring in the two lead roles are Emmy and Tony winner Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds, RED) and Kenneth Walsh (Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, Twin Peaks). Parker has a fruitful relationship with MTC, having won her Tony Award in 2001 for the Broadway transfer of their production of Proof.

What is it about?

Telling the story of a bizarre, out-of-the-blue act that has life-changing repercussions for two strangers, our story starts as just just another day on a crowded London train platform. A woman named Clare approaches a much older man named Alex, whom she's never met before, and kisses him. This surprising moment sets in motion a series of events which will change both Clare and Alex's lives forever.
