Catherine has long lived under the shadow of her father Robert, a brilliant mathematician who struggled with mental illness before he passed away. Although Catherine inherited some of Robert's genius, she fears that she may be susceptible to his madness as well. When ex-graduate student Hal discovers a potentially groundbreaking mathematical proof in her father's notebook, drama ensues as Catherine fights to authenticate his work, becomes romantically entangled, and battles to stave off a mental collapse.
Proof made its off-Broadway debut in 2000, and soon moved up the Great White Way to run for 917 performances. After landing the Drama Desk Award for Best New Play and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play, Proof’s crown of laurels was capped with two of the highest achievements in theater: the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play. Proof was later adapted to film in 2005, starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins.
Broadway Theatricals' aim is to bring the scale and professionalism of the Great White Way to the Southern California community via hard-hitting musical numbers and incredibly elaborate production designs. The group estimates that its musicals and straight plays draw a consistent crowd of about 6,000, only a few of whom are ghosts that live in the theater’s basement. Numerous professional actors and musicians have passed through the sets of the company’s trademark crowd-pleasers since the company's 2011 inception.
