CASA VALENTINA Kicks Off Ninth Theatrical Season at DEZART PERFORMS in Palm Springs
by David Green - Oct 20, 2016

To kick-off its 9th season, DEZART PERFORMS will present Casa Valentina, a thoroughly entertaining Tony Award-nominated "dramedy" written by Harvey Fierstein, the multiple Tony Award-winning actor/playwright and American Theatre Hall of Famer. Fierstein's raucous dramedy, CASA VALENTINA, is a hugely entertaining production that will have audiences buzzing. This 2014-nominated Tony Award production for Best Play, is based on a factual Catskills resort that catered to heterosexual men who delighted in dressing and acting as women. The period piece returns us to the land of dirty dancing and borscht belt comedy, circa 1962. The play transports the audience to an inconspicuous bungalow colony that caters to this very special clientele -- white-collar professionals who discreetly escape their families to spend their weekends safely inhabiting their chosen female alter-egos.

BWW Interview: Jake Epstein Reflects On His Return to BEAUTIFUL and the Legacy of Gerry Goffin
by Courtney Savoia - Oct 12, 2016

The abundantly talented Jake Epstein returns to Broadway's Beautiful :The Carole King Musical this fall and is savoring the experience of stepping back into a role he originated almost three years ago, as one of rock and roll's top songwriters. Gerry Goffin wrote the lyrics to some of the most celebrated masterpieces that not only defined a generation, but also continue to pierce the hearts of human beings everywhere -- as they stem from themes that are most pertinent to our nature. Themes of love, loss, confusion, joy, and pain all bleed into the words and melodies that Goffin created with songwriting partner and first wife -- the beloved Carole King. With immortal hits such as 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow' 'Up on the Roof,' and '(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,' among countless others, Goffin and King were able to explore the depths of the human experience - regardless of gender - and have produced a legacy that will continue to remain timeless and evoke nostalgia for years to come.
