A chance encounter at a hotel plays upon Kitty's mind in the dark comedy Happy Now? by Lucinda Coxon, as she struggles to balance personal freedom with family life, fidelity and a demanding job. Her husband is more interested in misplaced apostrophes than in their marriage, her parents are looking down the barrel of oblivion, and although she toys with the idea of joining a gym, Kitty's running out of time for big changes. Happy Now? dares to ask just that, in this painfully truthful, darkly comic take on contemporary life and how to survive it.

BWW Recap: THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER Series Premiere Brings Blood and Faith to FX
by Kara McCoy - Sep 15, 2015

I think it was Thomas Edison who said that series premieres are 99% anticipation and 1% reservation. Or he would have had he lived to see the dawn of television. There's some truth to that; however, as I found myself counting down the days to the airing of Kurt Sutter's latest FX pilot, I felt like I needed to amend that statement to reflect a more equal distribution of expectation. As a massive SONS OF ANARCHY fan, I was obviously excited to learn that cable TV's favorite bad boy would be hitting our screens again. At the same time, as a massive SONS OF ANARCHY fan, I wondered if THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER could possibly match up to one of the greatest dramas in recent television history (is that too strong? Maybe. But I'm sticking with it.) Did tonight's series premiere provide the answer? (more...)

BWW Review: Ahmanson Welcomes Charming AMELIE
by Don Grigware - Dec 19, 2016

Amelie A New Musical, based on the 2001 French film Amelie, has a magical charm that reminds one of Matilda, at least in the beginning scenes. We meet the young Amelie (Savvy Crawford) who enters through a picture frame (see photo at left) and proceeds to tell her story, quite sad in fact, for she is saddled with a heart condition and difficult parents who keep her isolated and unhappy. Her mother meets a tragic, almost freakish demise and Amelie is brought up by her father who lives in a world of his own. As she matures, she realizes her lot in life will be to make other people happy. Now onstage at the Ahmanson Theatre through January 15, Amelie A New Musical has some wonderfully imaginative moments and a sparkling cast under the fast-paced direction of Pam MacKinnon. (more...)
