by Billie Roe - Nov 26, 2014

According to mythology, the 'Phoenix' was a bird of great beauty, said to have lived 1,000 years in the Arabian wilderness. The Phoenix burns itself to ashes on an ancient funeral pyre, only to rise again from those ashes with the renewed exuberance of youth. Its renewed life cycle symbolizes the immortality of the spirit, the rebirth of idealism, the essence of creativity, and the aura of eternal hope. With her new show at the Laurie Beechman, Visible Phoenix (which opened October 17 and returned last Friday night), multi-award winner Carolyn Montgomery-Forant has returned to the cabaret stage (after a 14-year hiatus to raise her son and run a cafe business) as the very personification of that rare beautiful bird.

Found Theatre to Premiere New Documentary PATRON SAINT OF SIDESHOWFound Theatre to Premiere New Documentary PATRON SAINT OF SIDESHOW
by BWW News Desk - Nov 26, 2014

Founded in 1974 by Long Beach resident, Cynthia Galles, The Found Theatre has been producing original, avant garde plays for 40 years. When Galles, a tireless genius who wrote, directed, designed and acted in most of the Found's original productions, learned she had breast cancer, she knew that the experience, like other difficult issues her theatre had explored, would wind up on stage to educate and enlighten through the medium of comedy. In 2000, long-time Found videographer Mike Brown began documenting Galles' treatment and the creation of her acclaimed play about her breast cancer experience, 'One-Tit Wonder.' The resulting documentary, 'The Patron Saint of Sideshow,' draws from more than 100 hours of video of the rehearsal and production process of 'One-Tit Wonder,' and also incorporates contemporary interviews with Found Theatre company members and archival footage of previous Found productions shot by Brown during his more than 35 years with the theatre company. Uplifting and entertaining, 'Patron Saint of Sideshow' chronicles not only Galles' surreal battle with cancer, but the passion for theatre that allowed her to keep her small experimental theatre alive and well, against all odds, for more than 30 years.

In a holiday season crowded with just about every version of Dickens' classic imaginable, you can count on Trustus Theatre to stage a production that is totally fresh, modern, and compelling. Running at Trustus' main stage through December 20, this adaptation is penned by Patrick Barlow, who famously created the stage version of THE 39 STEPS, an astonishing piece requiring a few actors to play myriad characters in a sly, deft script that is overtly theatrical and physical. Barlow's touch is clearly apparent in his treatment of Dickens, as here we see one actor (Stann Gwynn) playing Ebenezer Scrooge, while Four other actors (Scott Herr, Catherine Hunsinger, Avery Bateman, and Kendrick Marion) play all the other roles.
