He graduated with many fellow LNM!T members from UC San Diego, where he studied acting, wrote plays, did pratfalls, and curated the Undergraduate New Play Festival for two years. Spencer also finds work as a filmmaker, editor, graphic designer, writer, physical comedian, and most recently an associate producer on new show for the Lifetime network.

Meet: Matthew Shewfelt- Piano Man

"Hi my name is Matthew and I'm a recent graduate from UCSC, where i majored in music theory.  I play guitar and piano, and I compose music for both.  I like loads of different kinds of music, and I'm especially interested in movie scores.  This is the second project I've worked on with LNM, and I'm really excited for this play because I just love working with this crew.  They're so much fun!"



You may have seen Matthew's face around LNM! before, he composed and performed all of the incredible music for our production of Woyzeck and he is an avid Arty Party attendee. He is going to be playing live piano accompaniment for the songs in our Hollywood Fringe Festival production of Making Love Over There. We adore Matthew, and we think you will too.

Making Love Over There Returns!


SO proud and excited to announce that we are bringing our favorite love collage,

In our closets hang a thousand costumes and faces; we love to throw them on in the name of Love. This is an attempt to rediscover Love and its lexicon. A thematic series of snapshots, with original music and the mad joy of dress-up, dozens of characters are trying to remember what Love looks like.

Coming again this Sunday!


Last month we tried something new at Lonesome No More! Theatre: The "Arty Party".

An informal night with an informal theme. Stories, songs, spoken word, dance, trivia, performance art - in short, anything that anyone wanted to do could be done. February's theme was love and the evening was a blast, so we're making it a monthly event.

March's theme is luck & fate. 
Everyone's invited!

For Immediate Release

Lonesome No More! Theatre and Combined Artform Present NO EXIT by Jean-Paul Sartre in Hollywood March 30 – April 28, 2012.
Young Company Presents Existential Classic Through a Modern Lense as Artists In Residence at Theatre Asylum

March 1, 2012.

Los Angeles, CA – Lonesome No More! Theatre presents Jean-Paul Sartre’s NO EXIT as their first work as Artists in Residence at Theatre Asylum Lab in Hollywood. NO EXIT has ten performances March 20 – April 28, with a weekend of previews March 23 – 25.

Moments after their respective deaths, three strangers find themselves locked up in a single room in Sartre’s NO EXIT, faced with a maddening new world in which they can cover their eyes but never sleep. They can go to the door, but they cannot open it. There are no torture instruments, but they torment one another and a lifetime of memories haunts them all. Director Lori Petermann presents Sartre’s truly dark and surprisingly funny play through a contemporary lens that projects three characters we recognize from our own present day: a cocky businessman, a self-made socialite, and a minimum wage member of the service industry. As the action examines the choices made by each that led them to NO EXIT, the true existential conundrum arises: how does an individual make the correct choices that leads them to a fulfilling life – and at what cost?

Lonesome No More! Theatre is a Los Angeles-based company of creative producers and performers known for highly energetic productions boldly staged to utilize the entire theatrical space. Founded in January 2011, the company began with an award-winning, sold-out production of Frank Wedekind’s Spring Awakening for the Hollywood Fringe Festival (June 2011), followed by Making Love Over There at Theatre Asylum (September 2011), and Woyzeck by Georg B├╝chner with Yeaheavy Projects in East Hollywood (November 2011).

NO EXIT by Jean-Paul Sartre, translated by Paul Bowles.
Presented by Lonesome No More! Theatre and Combined Artform.

Performances at Theatre Asylum Lab, entrance on Lillian Way
Previews March 23, 24, 25 at 8pm // $15
Full run March 30 – April 28, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm // $20
