Casting has been announced for the upcoming edition of Dennis Hensley’s The MisMatch Game, the show the Los Angeles Times calls, “witty, ribald ... an adventure in surrealist era bending.” The side-splitting parody of the 70s game show returns to the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre for two nights only, Friday, January 20, and Saturday, January 21, at 8 p.m.

The cast on Friday will include (in alphabetical order) Jackie Beat (as Bea Arthur), Willam Belli (as Jessica Simpson), Danny Casillas (as Reba Areba), Maile Flanagan (as Danny Bonaduce), Sam Pancake (as Lucille Ball), and Marc Samuel (as President Barack Obama).

On Saturday the cast will feature (in alphabetical order) Julie Brown (as Melania Trump), Jackie Clarke (as Elizabeth Taylor), Dante (as Jack Nicholson), Nicol Paone (as Arianna Huffington), and Felix Pire (as Ricardo Montalban). All appearances are subject to availability. Visit for updates.

The MisMatch Game regularly fills the house at its irregularly scheduled gigs at the Renberg Theatre. Audiences keep coming back for the razor’s-edge improv and the racy, anarchic, and decidedly un-PC wit and wildness. The Advocate honored The MisMatch Game with a “10 Best Theatre” citation that said: “This recurring Los Angeles happening re-imagines the ‘70s TV game show The Match Game with full-camp press and excellent sub-lebrity impersonations.”

General admission tickets are $15 and may be purchased online at or by phone at 323-860-7300. Net proceeds from all ticket sales will support the full range of free and low-cost programs and services offered by the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre is located at the Village at Ed Gould Plaza, 1125 N. McCadden Place (one block east of Highland, just north of Santa Monica Boulevard), in Hollywood 90038. Free onsite parking is available.
