Promoted as a "rock-and-roll fable," Clay kicked off its month long run at the Kirk Douglas Theatre last Thursday.

Chronicling the rise of a fictional hip-hop superstar, from suburban hell to undisputed fame, the "one man hip hop musical" features Clay's writer, composer and lyricist Matt Sax in the title role.

A recent graduate of Northwestern University, Sax, along with director Eric Rosen, bring Clay to Los Angeles for its West Coast debut after it premiered in Chicago as a major hit for the About Face Theatre Company and Lookingglass Theatre Company last fall.

While L.A. reviews are still out, the Chicago Sun-Times' Hedy Weiss called Sax "a master of the form."

Sounds like something worth checking out.

Clay runs September 13th-October 14th at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City. Tickets are available online at or by calling 213-628-2772.
