The Magic Tower, a live multi-media production of one-act plays helmed by Academy Award-nominated actor James Franco

The production, inspired by playwright Tennessee Williams’ rarely performed collection of short dramas, originally premiered at CalArts in December, and is remounted at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica on Friday through Sunday.
