LA Times Critic’s Choice! “A 99-seat ‘Crazy Heart,’ this tender 80-minute dramedy has the makings of a mellow hit for Rogue Machine Theatre.” Read the full review

“Skilled performances… Fulger is understated and powerful… Kober gives country star Sonny a believable mix of charm and grittiness.” Backstage

“Rogue Machine doesn’t stint in the production department… Pivnick (lighting designer) teases out subtle expressionistic touches.” Variety

“WOW! You’ll love every minute of Roberts’ only slightly acidic valentine to small-town Indiana life… An ensemble of actors working together like a finely tuned machine bring Roberts’ words to vivid, absorbing life… Superb design package.” StageSceneLA

“In Where the Great Ones Run, Roberts explores issues of social status, gender equality, sexuality, sibling rivalry, judgment, betrayal, forgiveness, co-dependence, the idea that love is a choice, and even more… to inspire our own reflection upon them as they exist in our very own lives… The production values are not just great, they are spectacular… [the designers] worked in tuneful concert to create tremendously artful experience… The acting is sublime.” Examiner.com

“A heart-warming play featuring some superb acting from all… authentic and true.“ArtsBeatLA

“Pretty Little Flower” featuring Sonny Burl (played by Jeff Kober) and The Far West

Where the Great Ones Run

by Mark Roberts

(Mike & Molly, Rantoul and Die)

Directed by Mark L. Taylor

Country music legend Sonny Burl walks into just another truck stop in the middle of nowhere, USA. He’s returning to his hometown to perform a concert at the Indiana county fair, and to try to connect with the wife he never divorced, the brother he abandoned, and the grown daughter he never got to know. His bittersweet homecoming fuels an unforgettable collision of the strong and the wise, and is a reminder of how fame gets in the way of life, love and ultimately death.

Now playing through July 29

Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00pm • Sundays at 3:00pm
