The Inheritance FAQs


  • Who is performing the role of Adam/Leo?

    Due to an injury, Nic Ashe has departed his role as Adam/Leo in the Geffen Playhouse production of The Inheritance. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back on the Geffen stage in the future. Joining the cast to take on the role is Bradley James Tejeda, a company member from the original Broadway production. We welcome Bradley to the production in his Geffen Playhouse debut.

  • What does “Part 1 & Part 2” mean?

    The Inheritance is an epic drama presented as two full-length plays: Part 1 and Part 2. It is recommended that audience members see both Parts for the full experience and story.

  • Do I have to purchase tickets to both Parts?

    While we encourage you to see both Parts for the full experience, buying each Part separately is an option. We do recommend purchasing a ticket to Part 1 first as elements in Part 2 may be unclear as characters and plot points are referenced throughout Part 2.

  • What are the showtimes and running times?

    Part 1 and Part 2 performances will be staggered throughout the run, and due to the extended running time of each Part, showtimes will be earlier than our normal schedule:

    • Tuesday–Friday: 7:30pm
    • Saturday/Sunday Matinee: 1:00pm
    • Saturday/Sunday Evening: 7:00pm

    Part 1 runs an estimated 3 hours and 10 minutes, including two intermissions.

    Part 2 runs an estimated 3 hours and 15 minutes, including one intermission and a brief pause.

  • Can I see both Part 1 and Part 2 in one day?

    Yes! On select weekend dates during the run, Part 1 will be performed at the 1:00pm matinee, and Part 2 will be performed the same evening at 7:00pm.

  • What kind of snacks/food will be offered if I choose to attend both Part 1 and Part 2 in one day?

    The lobby will be open one hour prior to showtime and we have a selection of snacks and drinks available for purchase. No outside food is allowed. The theater lobby will close between performances, so we recommend making a 5:00pm dinner reservation with one of our restaurant partners for a meal between performances.

    Due to the staggered schedule of Parts 1 & 2, your scheduled performances may not conform with your normal subscription day/time/seating locations. We have done our best to assign a comparable day/time/seating location, but if you would like to exchange your assigned tickets, please contact Audience Services at 310.208.2028 (Tues–Sun, 12pm–6pm).
