Starring Orson Bean and Alley Mills

Tony Award nominee, and winner of the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award (Best Solo Performance 2015), Orson Bean, returns to Pacific Resident Theatre in the world premiere of “Alright Then,” co-starring Alley Mills. The new production, January 27 – March 25, 2018, is being directed by Guillermo Cienfuegos (Ovation Award and Los Angeles Drama Critic’s Circle Award for Best Director), and was inspired by Bean’s multi-award winning companion piece SAFE AT HOME: An Evening with Orson Bean.

As one of America’s best-known raconteurs, and an undisputed triple threat, Orson Bean has entertained several generations of audiences in all forms of media. In his latest comical and genuine extravaganza, he and Alley Mills recount a magical but unlikely meeting that changed the course of their lives forever. A funny, vivid, and synchronistic journey about two artists who beat the odds in the world of entertainment, love…and marriage.

“Alright Then” opens at 8pm on January 27th and runs Thursdays – Saturdays at 8pm, and on Sundays at 3pm through March 25, 2018. Pacific Resident Theatre is located at 703 Venice Blvd. in Venice, CA 90291. Tickets are $25 - $34 and can be purchased online at or by calling (310) 822-8392.

Guillermo Cienfuegos (Critics Choice – LA Times for PRT’s Rhinoceros; The Homecoming and Henry V – Critics Choice – LA Times; Ovation Award, and Los Angeles Drama Critic’s Circle Award for Best Director) helmed Orson’s 2015/16 multi-award-winning production, Safe at Home: An Evening With Orson Bean, and now returns at the helm for Alright Then. One of Los Angeles’ top directors (Stage Raw award-winning Dutch Masters at Rogue Machine Theatre; 3 Ovation Awards including Best Production) his productions have appeared on KCRW’s, and numerous other, ‘Best of the Year’ lists. In addition, Cienfuegos has directed eight World Premieres for Pacific Resident Theatre, including Keith Stevenson’s Ovation-Award-nominated Out There on Fried Meat Ridge Road (recently TOP TEN list for London’s West End), A Fried Meat Christmas, and The Unfryable Meatness of Being; in addition, My Girlfriend is an Alien by Keith DeFacto (LA Weekly and Stage Raw Recommended). After a successful run at PRT, his production of Vince Melocchi’s Julia (nominated for 3 LA Weekly Awards, including Best Director) transferred to New York’s 59E59 Theatre, Off Broadway. Lions, his first collaboration with Melocchi, was nominated for an Ovation Award and later published by Samuel French.

His stage career includes starring roles in the Broadway production of Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (Walter Matthau and Jayne Mansfield), Never Too Late, and Illya Darling. Most recently, he garnered the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award - Best Solo Performance – for his work at PRT in Safe at Home: An Evening with Orson Bean. Orson received a SAG Award nomination for his performance in the film “Being John Malkovich.”

As a comic, he appeared over 200 times on The Tonight Show, approximately one hundred times as substitute host. As a guest star, he was seen on To Tell The Truth for eight years. Bean has appeared in TV cult favorites Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman and Forever Fernwood.
