BWW Review: Far-fetched and Flimsy, SCRATCH is a Heartfelt Attempt at Creating Original Musical TheatreBWW Review: Far-fetched and Flimsy, SCRATCH is a Heartfelt Attempt at Creating Original Musical Theatre
by David Fick - Jul 6, 2016

SCRATCH, written by Heather Livesey, describes itself as an 'indie style musical'. The piece comes across very much like a first draft, with its far-fetched and flimsy plot never finding any kind of coherent throughline in which an audience can truly invest its engagement. (more...)

BWW Review: Clever L.A. NOW AND THEN Shines at LACCBWW Review: Clever L.A. NOW AND THEN Shines at LACC
by Don Grigware - May 16, 2016

What a lovely surprise! I know that Bruce Kimmel is quite the clever gentleman and would not expect anything less than superlative work from his camp, but stepping down to the college campus level to review is not something that I particularly savor. These actors, with the exception of Robert Yacko and April Audia, are students, not yet professional performers as such. Needless to say, I was overwhelmed, not by the singing, but at least by the acting and overall drive and energy of the performers who delivered a mightily informative, nostalgic and fun show. It's called L.A. Now and Then, and it's a revue with songs and monologues that take a glance back at Los Angeles through the years and compare past with present cultural values. Kimmel as director maintains a great pace throughout: no lags; the show moves! (more...)
