Hollywood, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/28/2014 -- Smooth Landings is the post-apocalyptic story of an office meeting that takes place as a company tries to decide on a new direction for business now that the world has been utterly destroyed. Adams (played by Jeff Gum), Evie (played by Lily Holleman), The Boss (played by Bruno Oliver), and Smith (played by Matt Doherty) try to decide how the rest of their lives shall play out as the last 4 living human’s on earth in a hilarious comedy that will keep you laughing throughout the entire act. "We all work great together. Every time we’re on stage, something fresh and exciting happens. I love that, and the audience does as well," says Jeff Gum.
Smooth Landings, directed by Steve Kaplan and written by Soren Kisiel, debuted on stage at Sci-Fest in Los Angeles on May 13th 2014 and is set to run until June 1st 2014 (closing night of the festival). Sci-Fest is the first festival of its kind. Producers Michael Blaha, David Dean Bottrell and Lee Costello have brought this innovative new genre to life, and it has been a major hit with today’s science fiction audiences. The festival features live acts about everything from extra terrestrial life, to the paranormal--all adapted for the stage. A one-act play festival is a fresh concept in the entertainment industry, as science fiction is rarely brought to the stage. Only author Ray Bradbury has ever successfully adapted science fiction onto the stage, so the opportunity for this ensemble to shine in this genre is a great one.
This incredibly talented cast is bringing comedy to a whole new level at this exciting Sci-Fi festival. The Hollywood Reporter, LA Weekly, The Examiner, The Huffington Post and Sci Fi Sundae have all given rave reviews, calling it “Beyond Entertaining.” It’s no wonder. The impressive cast has a rich history, great presence, and years of experience.
