Maude, a 50-something unemployed bartender living in a trailer park has bought a painting for a few bucks at a thrift store. Despite almost trashing it, she’s now convinced it’s a lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions of dollars. But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy flies from New York to Bakersfield, CA to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover. Inspired by true events, this hilarious and thought-provoking play asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic. Featuring Diane Cary and John Mawson, directed by Amir Korangy.

Amir Korangy, the director, stages a superior production. The objectives were clear, the actors knew where they were going and they worked well together. But, in the early part of this two-week run, there was something missing. There is another level of concentration to add, of thoughts that keep the actors engaged in a relationship that is constantly changing. Those are the moments that change the relationship and move the play to its ultimate conclusion.

Though a tad (and just a tad) bit slow in the second act, Amir Korangy’s fascinating production of playwright Stephen Sachs play brilliantly explores the subject of “value in art” and the perspective from which a person values a thing or person...

Bakersfield Mist is an engaging and well done piece of theatre.
