The Princes of Kings Road
to Receive a World Premiere in September


EST/LA will be producing the world premiere of The Princes of Kings Road by Tom Lazarus in mid-September as a site-specific production at the Neutra Institute Museum & Gallery in Silver Lake.

Tom’s enlightening, touching and funny three-character play takes place twenty-three years after world famous architects Richard Neutra and Rudolph Schindler’s business partner relationship and friendship ended.

They meet in the unlikeliest of places—as patients in a shared hospital room at Cedars of Lebanon, where stuck in close quarters, they are forced to hash out their differences, their legacies and their friendship.

Based on an actual incident, the play was developed in EST/LA’s Playwright’s Unit and performed in this year’s EST/LA’s Winterfest reading series where Dion Neutra, Richard Neutra’s son, saw the play and proposed that it be produced at the Neutra Institute Museum and Gallery.



A little play that was born at Ensemble Studio Theatre,
nurtured at MCC and then triumphantly roared onto Broadway,
has just been nominated for five Tony Awards! Not a British import,
no Hollywood backing or stars, just awesome theater.

Congratulations to Robert Askins, Steven Boyer, Geneva Carr,
Sarah Stiles and Moritz von Stuelpnagel.
