The Orpheum Theatre – one of L.A.’s most venerable landmarks opened its doors on February 15, 1926 and still has a Mighty Wurlitzer organ, that is one of three working pipe organs remaining in Southern California. From a young Judy Garland’s 1933 vaudeville performance to recent filmings of the hit TV shows “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance”, this renowned venue hosts an array of theatrical productions, religious events, concerts, weddings, film festivals, seminars, private parties, variety shows, awards shows, movie shoots, music video shoots, television show and commercial shoots and much more.
Clea DuVall makes an assured directorial debut with THE INTERVENTION, a relationship comedy featuring a sharp-witted ensemble of thirty-something couples on a beautiful lakefront vacation — with a hidden agenda. When the weekend’s plot to intervene in Ruby’s (Cobie Smulders) relationship goes awry, tension among the group runs high and riotous comedy ensues. Secrets are revealed, and as everyone lets go of their public façades and acknowledges their emotional baggage, the hilarity builds. The expert comic timing of this astonishingly talented cast keeps you laughing, even as its sly observations make you wince in recognition.
Reunited once again, DuVall and Natasha Lyonne (ADDICTED TO FRESNO, BUT I’M A CHEERLEADER) shine as a couple facing temptation in the form of an alluring queer stranger (Alia Shawkat). The spirited group also includes neurotic instigator Annie (Melanie Lynskey), who orchestrates the intervention, Matt (Jason Ritter), her put-upon boyfriend, and free-spirited drifter Jack (Ben Schwartz). We’re thrilled to showcase acclaimed Outfest alum Clea Duvall in this award-winning, energetic Sundance favorite.
