BWW Reviews: Recognizable Local Characters Inhabit L.A. DELI, A New Comedy by Sam BobrickBWW Reviews: Recognizable Local Characters Inhabit L.A. DELI, A New Comedy by Sam Bobrick
by Shari Barrett - Mar 30, 2014

Certainly those of us who frequent any Jewish deli in Los Angeles will recognize these characters. Playwright Sam Bobrick admits some of the events in the play's 12 sketches actually happened to him, some to his friends, and some to people he just happened to be sitting next to at lunch. After working in the entertainment business for over 50 years, he's not sure which is which. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Laguna Playhouse Offers New Musicalized Version of Truman Capote's A CHRISTMAS MEMORYBWW Reviews: Laguna Playhouse Offers New Musicalized Version of Truman Capote's A CHRISTMAS MEMORY
by Don Grigware - Dec 10, 2013

One of my very favorite Christmas stories of all time is A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote about his boyhood growing up with his eccentric cousin Sook Faulk. Geraldine Page played Sook in a 1966 telefilm, and it was later remade for television in the 80s with Patty Duke. It is the Page version that stays with me, having left a lasting impression of the woman, the era and its fierce impact on humanity. Now Duane Poole has fashioned a retelling of the story with music by Larry Grossman and lyrics by Carol Hall in a new musical version of A Christmas Memory making its Southern California premiere at Laguna Playhouse through December 29.

A Musical Theatre InFormance - Il teatro musicale in concerto!A Musical Theatre InFormance - Il teatro musicale in concerto!
by Nino Prattico - Nov 3, 2013

SAVE THE DATE: Sabato 9 novembre alle ore 20.45 lo spettacolo dal titolo 'A Musical Theatre Informance - Il Teatro Musicale In Concerto' inaugurera la Stagione di Prosa del Comune di Borgo Valsugana (provincia di Trento) organizzata dal Coordinamento Teatrale Trentino. Si tratta di un'informance di teatro musicale, ovvero un concerto con brani scelti dal repertorio del musical internazionale, con l'intento di in-'formare' il pubblico. ' un tipo di spettacolo pensato per il Trentino - luogo in cui sono nato e cresciuto - ma adattabile a qualsiasi altra parte d'Italia' dice Mattia Ferrari, protagonista e regista dello show. 'Ho pensato - continua - che l'informance potesse essere un modo efficace per far conoscere al pubblico locale un genere teatrale ancora poco diffuso in regione. Per questo motivo ho scelto un cast artistico e tecnico formato da giovani trentini: tre artisti locali che conducono il pubblico attraverso brani provenienti da un genere teatrale che, per alcuni, e ancora del tutto sconosciuto.'
