After playing to sold out crowds at the recent 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival, the new hit comedy play "Meet & Greet" returns for an extended run at Theatre Asylum-Elephant Space in Hollywood.

The Encore! Producers' Award winner was written by television veterans Stan Zimmerman ("The Golden Girls," "Roseanne," "Gilmore Girls") & Christian McLaughlin ("Married with Children," "Desperate Housewives") and directed by Stan Zimmerman ("Entertaining Mr. Sloane," "Blink & You Might Miss Me," "A Tuna Christmas"). The outrageous comedy features an all-star cast, including Daniele Gaither ("Mad TV," "Groundlings"), Teresa Ganzel ("Wall-E," "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson"), Carolyn Hennesy ("True Blood," "General Hospital"), Vicki Lewis ("NewsRadio," "Chicago on Broadway") and Brendan Robinson ("Pretty Little Liars").

"Meet & Greet" is a one act comedy about four actresses of a certain age -- a Broadway diva (Carolyn Hennesy), an unhinged ex-sitcom star (Vicki Lewis), her ditzy blonde bombshell former co-star (Teresa Ganzel), and a volcanically tempered African-American reality show star (Daniele Gaither) -- are all up for the same part in a new sitcom pilot. They meet at a network casting office in the San Fernando Valley presided over by a catty, gay young male assistant (Brendan Robinson). Old rivalries come screaming to the surface, egos clash, hair is pulled and a shocking revelation forces them to question their entire existences.

"Meet & Greet" will play for twenty-four performances -- Friday, August 1st at 8 p.m. to September 21st at 4 p.m. The schedule is three shows per weekend, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. All shows will be at Theatre Asylum-Elephant Space 6322 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90038.

Opening Night is Sunday, August 3rd at 4 p.m. with a party on stage following the show.

Tickets are $20 online or $25 at the door - Opening Night Aug. 3rd: $25.00 advance/ $30 at door. Tickets can be purchased at: www.theatreasylum-la.com
General seating. Running time is one hour and twenty minutes. No intermission.
