We gave Stoneface: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Buster Keaton a rave review a month ago, and for those who haven’t seen the play at Sacred Fools in Hollywood, and for those who want to see it again, the run has been extended through August 26.
Stoneface is a mixture of all the things Sacred Fools do so well: moving sets and live music, quick scene changes and two people playing Buster at the same time. The star is the redoubtable French Stewart, who does the same things Buster did (he even has a house fall on him) without breaking his serious expression. It is a tour-de-force performance, sure to win awards, and well worth the journey to Hollywood.
Tickets are $34, $27 for students and seniors. Performances are Thursday, August 9 at 8 p.m., Friday, August 10 at 8 p.m., Saturday, August 11 at 8 p.m., Sunday, August 12 at 2 p.m., Wednesday, August 14 at 8 p.m., Tuesdays-Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. through August 26.
