BWW Review: ALL MY SONS: An Entreaty To Be Better
by Nancy Grossman - Nov 17, 2016

Arthur Miller's 1947 Tony Award-winning play ALL MY SONS is strikingly relevant nearly seventy years later.

Sr. Danielle Dwyer reaches unbelievable depths in her portrayal of Kate Keller, the heart and soul of this damaged family, and the work of the entire cast of artists is truly worthy of the word ensemble.

BWW Interview: Louis Baker of RAGTIME at Actors' Repertory Theatre Of Simi
by Cary Ginell - Dec 2, 2016

Louis Baker has had a varied career in the entertainment world. As an actor, he studied under three prestigious performers: Bill Duke, Haile Gerima, and Debbie Allen. He has worked as a voiceover artist in the animation world, co-produces with his wife a family-centered web series called Faces of Offense, and has played a variety of roles on stage in shows such as Tommy, West Side Story, and The Wiz. But none of those parts are as meaningful to Louis as his current one - playing the historically-based author/orator Booker T. Washington in the Actors Repertory Theatre of Simi's production of Ragtime. The show closes this weekend, but we cornered Louis after last Sunday's performance to talk about his character in the context of the current political turmoil in America, which, unfortunately, is not that much different from what was depicted in E. L. Doctorow's famous novel. (more...)

Hand to God is a ballsy, brassy and in-your-face consideration of life in a Southern church and its impact on the lives of its congregants, exposing the hypocrisy of small-town convention and social mores that continue to evolve at a glacial pace. You'll be singing hosannas in the show's Aftermath, reveling in the knowledge that you've seen some very talented people doing what God - or any other higher power or reverential deity - must have intended from the very beginning, as in '¬Öin the beginning¬Ö' Who knew a church's puppet ministry could be so intriguingly facile yet uproariously entertaining?
