Alley Rep Announces 2016/2017 Series: KILL THE DARLINGS
by BWW News Desk - Sep 7, 2016

Call it celebrity culture or just old-fashioned idolatry, but when we lavish more attention on characters and avatars than flesh-and-blood human beings, something essential is lost. In KILL THE DARLINGS, Alley Repertory Theater's 2016/2017 series, three comedic plays will confront the idols of politics, mythology, and pop in hopes of rediscovering our shared humanity. (more...)

L. Sheldon Oldford Releases 'Omittamus Descendam: The Biblical First Contact'
by BWW News Desk - Sep 22, 2016

L. Sheldon Oldford, author of the new book 'Omittamus Descendam: The Biblical First Contact', was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada, and became a US citizen in October 2002. He currently has over sixteen years in law enforcement as a corrections officer, police officer and as a detective. L. Sheldon Oldford first began a career as an evangelical preacher during his young adult life and attended a Bible college in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He has been both a youth and an evangelistic pastor. He later became intrigued by the ancient astronaut theory, which caused him to examine the Bible with a more realistic and investigative view. His interest in this theory brought him to question the very character of the biblical God as it relates to today's science and technology. Currently, L. Sheldon Oldford still works as a police officer and resides in Southern Arizona with his wife, Angie, of twenty-one years. They have five children. (more...)

BWW Review: Musical HUNCHBACK On Top of the World at La Mirada
by Don Grigware - Sep 19, 2016

Victor Hugo's monumental romantic/gothic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame, published in 1831, centers in, around and on top of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. So does the new musical of the same name written by Peter Parnell, Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken, which received its U.S. premiere at La Jolla Playhouse in 2014 and is currently receiving its Los Angeles premiere at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts. Stephen Gifford's set replete with stained glass windows, balcony and overhanging bells is scaled down from the original but still impressive and pulls you in effectively to another world, the ethereal realm of a higher power. Catholic boy that I am, every kyrie eleison exuded by the resounding chorus moved me to tears. (more...)

BWW Interview: Lyrissa Leininger & Michael Kennedy of THE LITTLE MERMAID at Cabrillo Music Theatre
by Cary Ginell - Jul 13, 2016

One important and valuable aspect of Cabrillo Music Theatre's long tenure in Ventura County is its devotion to casting talented young local performers in as many of its productions as it can. Cabrillo's casts are usually laden with a mix of professional Equity lead performers, local and regional talent from Southern California (and sometimes elsewhere), but especially home-grown youngsters. We spoke with two of the latter during a rehearsal session recently, Lyrissa Leininger, 16, and Michael Kennedy, 19, who have already gotten their feet wet (an appropriate pre-requisite for The Little Mermaid!) in a number of Cabrillo productions.
