The Making of America's Musical- 1776: The Story Behind the StoryThe Making of America's Musical- 1776: The Story Behind the Story
by Jeffrey Kare - Jul 4, 2016

As America celebrates its 240th Birthday today, let's talk about what is probably one of the greatest musicals ever written, and it only came about 46 years before Hamilton. 1776 dramatizes the story of how John Adams was able to persuade his colleagues to vote for American independence as well as signing the Declaration of Independence. While the musical does dramatize the most important event in American history, the story behind the musical is probably just as interesting. (more...)

BWW Review: HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES a Confusing Madcap DramaBWW Review: HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES a Confusing Madcap Drama
by Teresa Budasi - Apr 28, 2016

THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES is a mixed bag of tone and theme. It is comedy, tragedy, drama, slapstick and farce and then ends in a dark, dark place. Its themes -- The American Dream, mental illness, religion, loneliness, violence and betrayal -- are played out to varying levels of hysteria, which makes for a bewildering night at the theater.

BWW Review: WILHOITE'S LIVING ROOMBWW Review: WILHOITE'S LIVING ROOM
by Don Grigware - Apr 6, 2016

About eight months ago, actress/singer Kathleen Wilhoite began performing the first Monday of every month at the E-Spot Lounge, formerly Upstairs at Vitello's, with a show entitled Wilhoite's Living Room. It is described as an evening of music, poetry reading, guest stars and comedy. I was curious. I had long been a fan of Wilhoite from her TV appearances on ER and in several MOWs. She is a helluva character actress, edgy, quirky and always an engaging standout. When you see her onscreen, regardless of the size of the role, you remember her long afterwards. What I did not realize was that she is also a fine musician... until I googled and read about her background growing up in Santa Barbara and singing in choirs. She eventually produced two CDs and several of her original songs have been recorded for movie soundtracks. So, exceedingly interested in hearing her, I decided to check out Wilhoite's Living Room on Monday, April 4 at 7: 30 pm. What a fun and exciting surprise was in store! (more...)
