Congratulations to LA’s own Devon Armstrong and the Downtown Repertory Theater Company whose web series Empty Space is now available on BroadwayWorld.com. Empty Space is a nine-episode comedy that explores and glorifies the world of diehard thespians, those hardcore beasts of the theater who soldier on against the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune because, after all, the show must go on. All episodes are now available for you to binge watch HERE. Since seeing a sneak preview of Episode One earlier this spring, I can tell you that I’ve been looking forward to the rest of the series. It’s terrific.
In Empty Space: After an untimely accident, Orson Ripley (Devon Armstrong), a scruffy but talented denizen of guerrilla theater, finds himself torn from his parking lot black-box and thrust into the world of the acerbic and autocratic Ian Kingsley (Freddy Douglas), Artistic Director of the well-heeled Warner Grand Playhouse. But all is not well at the Warner Grand: a simmering feud between the cast and the crew flares up into open mutiny three days before Romeo and Juliet is set to open…
The series is written and directed by Devon Armstrong with additional direction by Matt Lents, and is produced by Devon Armstrong and John Armstrong, with cinematography by Idan Menin.
