BWW Reviews: Classic ODD COUPLE Given Classic Treatment at Sierra Madre PlayhouseBWW Reviews: Classic ODD COUPLE Given Classic Treatment at Sierra Madre Playhouse
by Don Grigware - May 11, 2015

It's been 50 years since Neil Simon wrote The Odd Couple, perhaps the most famous of his early plays. March, 1965. I was a freshman in college, and little did I know that one day I would play Felix Unger in a local production onstage. Needless to say, I was certainly smitten with the crazed character and his neurotic mannerisms and with Simon's terribly funny comedic lines, whenever I watched the film with Jack Lemmon and the TV series with Tony Randall. Not so easy to essay...this character - as I found out first hand - for this play with all its laugh.a.minute jokes is really a very serious drama about the frailty of relationships and how we suffer through them. Now onstage in a wonderfully grounded and real portrait, The Odd Couple still holds up; the Sierra Madre Playhouse production, under the meticulous direction of Alan Brooks, does the classic proud.

BWW Recap: Oscar and Felix are back in THE ODD COUPLE Pilot!BWW Recap: Oscar and Felix are back in THE ODD COUPLE Pilot!
by Dylan Siegman - Feb 19, 2015

You know how the story goes: Boy gets married, other boy gets married, both marriages fall apart, both boys move in together, one boy is sloppy while the other boy is neat, hilarious hijinks ensue. Chances are that you've seen/heard about one of the incarnations of THE ODD COUPLE, whether it was the movie starring Walter Matthau (CHARADE, GRUMPY OLD MEN) and Jack Lemmon (SOME LIKE IT HOT, GRUMPY OLD MEN), the tv series back in the 70's starring Jack Klugman (QUINCY M.E., 12 ANGRY MEN) and Tony Randall (PILLOW TALK, DOWN WITH LOVE), or the original play by Neil Simon on which all the subsequent versions were all based. Regardless, Felix Unger and Oscar Madison are back, this time played by Thomas Lennon (NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM, MEMENTO) and Matthew Perry (FRIENDS, 17 AGAIN). I find both of these actors extremely funny, so it will be interesting to see how this all pans out. Considering Perry's recent string of cancellations, he could really use a winner. (more...)

CINDERELLA AT 70 is ReleasedCINDERELLA AT 70 is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jan 14, 2015

Cinderella is alive and well in 2015. Prince Charming having divorced her for a trophy wife, she's teamed up with a new 70-year-old BFF as her mentor and author. She's learning about online dating, sex, boob jobs, botox, technology, the Millenia generation - and, of course, men. She can make a great martini - shaken, not stirred - and she's using her 2,000 years of experience to add a new dimension to everyone who meets her. Our favorite princess is delightful, funny, and promises to become your BFF too. The original idea for 'Cinderella at 70' was born when three women in their 60s spent a weekend together in Los Angeles, Treacy says. 'Sex and the City was hot,' she says. 'Over cosmos one evening, someone asked, 'Where do you think these women will be 30 years from now?' For the rest of the evening, happily inebriated, we continued to hypothesize. Would Carrie and Big have children? Would Miranda choose her career or life in Brooklyn? What would happen to Samantha and James? Would debutante Charlotte find happiness with her Jewish husband? It's taken 10 years from that night for Cinderella to evolve, but now we're both looking forward to the spotlight, the red carpet, and sharing our adventures with the world.' Toni Demarco, whose best seller Heartgasm, Increasing Intimacy and Ecstacy with Your Beloved was endorsed by Larry King, says 'Cinderella at 70' is a blissful read that took me on a journey and did not set me down until the final page.' Having already completed several pre-media buzz appearances in Las Vegas and Palm Springs, Treacy says, 'The stage is set for a roll out of 'Cinderella at 70' with many book readings, book signings, and media appearances lined up in 2015.' Request for review copies of the book can be secured at Beyond Publishing.net 702.623.2040.
