BWW Review: Well Acted and Directed WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION at GrouprepBWW Review: Well Acted and Directed WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION at Grouprep
by Don Grigware - Jan 30, 2017

There's nothing like a good old fashioned mystery to keep you on the edge of your theatre seat, especially one that's written by the grande dame of the genre Agatha Christie.†The Mousetrap†was one of the longest running plays on the West End for umpteen years. As I sat at Group rep Friday night watching†Witness for the Prosecution, which is rarely revived, I really tuned in to the dialogue. It is so well constructed, and the dozen or so characters are deliciously humorous. I am happy to report that the new production at Group rep directed by skilled veteran Jules Aaron and starring†guest artist Salome Jens†and†Larry Eisenberg†is akin to a jolly good rollercoaster ride. It's delightfully entertaining and can be seen through March 12. (more...)

BWW Review: Musical HUNCHBACK On Top of the World at La MiradaBWW Review: Musical HUNCHBACK On Top of the World at La Mirada
by Don Grigware - Sep 19, 2016

Victor Hugo's monumental romantic/gothic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame, published in 1831, centers in, around and on top of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. So does the new musical of the same name written by Peter Parnell, Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken, which received its U.S. premiere at La Jolla Playhouse in 2014 and is currently receiving its Los Angeles premiere at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts. Stephen Gifford's set replete with stained glass windows, balcony and overhanging bells is scaled down from the original but still impressive and pulls you in effectively to another world, the ethereal realm of a higher power. Catholic boy that I am, every kyrie eleison exuded by the resounding chorus moved me to tears. (more...)
