American Century Theatre Presents STAGE DOOR, 4/13American Century Theatre Presents STAGE DOOR, 4/13
by BWW News Desk - Mar 14, 2011

Dynamic writing duo Edna Ferber (the author of Show Boat) and George S. Kaufman (coauthor of The Man Who Came to Dinner, You Can't Take It with You, and other hit comedies) brought high comedy and laughter to American audiences in the 1930s with their witty, stylish hits Stage Door, The Royal Family, and Dinner at Eight. Stage Door was a huge Broadway success in 1936 at the Music Box Theatre (staged by Kaufman) and was made into a star-studded Hollywood movie featuring a young Katherine Hepburn. The play, however, is rarely done in modern times because of the large cast. A magnificent vehicle for theatre actresses, Stage Door is the kind of seldom-produced classic comedy that The American Century Theater was created to produce-and will be presenting in April of 2011.

Mesa Encore Theatre Presents Man of La Mancha, Opens 4/8Mesa Encore Theatre Presents Man of La Mancha, Opens 4/8
by BWW News Desk - Mar 13, 2011

A truly remarkable show, and one of the great theatre successes of our time! This is a play-within-a-play, based on Cervantes' 'Don Quixote.' We have a poignant story of a dying old man whose impossible dream takes over his mind. The well-known classic songs It's All the Same, Dulcinea, I'm Only Thinking of Him, The Impossible Dream, I Really Like Him and Little Bird remain in your thoughts and in your soul well after you see the show. His dream is Everyman's dream. His tilting at windmills is Everyman's great adventure. Somehow, the Footlights disappear, time is telescoped and the 'Man of La Mancha' speaks for humankind. Winner of 5 Tony Awards! (more...)

Lennon Sisters a Delight at Welk Theatre in EscondidoLennon Sisters a Delight at Welk Theatre in Escondido
by Don Grigware - Feb 5, 2011

For those of us who watched The Lawrence Welk Show regularly every Saturday night from December 1955 through 1967, The Lennon Sisters were the darlings of the airwaves. Here was a quartet of singers - Dianne, Peggy, Kathy and Janet - emanating sweetness and beautifully balanced harmony, who catapulted to stardom mainly through these weekly TV appearances. They did have success with a recording of 'Tonite You Belong To Me', but it was primarily TV and Mr. Welk, as they still so politely refer to him, that gave them their big break. Now, 55 years later, Dianne and Peggy have retired, leaving Kathy and Janet and their younger sister Mimi, who joined them in the late 90s, as a trio. They look terrific and sound better than ever.
