BWW Review: WILHOITE'S LIVING ROOM
by Don Grigware - Apr 6, 2016

About eight months ago, actress/singer Kathleen Wilhoite began performing the first Monday of every month at the E-Spot Lounge, formerly Upstairs at Vitello's, with a show entitled Wilhoite's Living Room. It is described as an evening of music, poetry reading, guest stars and comedy. I was curious. I had long been a fan of Wilhoite from her TV appearances on ER and in several MOWs. She is a helluva character actress, edgy, quirky and always an engaging standout. When you see her onscreen, regardless of the size of the role, you remember her long afterwards. What I did not realize was that she is also a fine musician... until I googled and read about her background growing up in Santa Barbara and singing in choirs. She eventually produced two CDs and several of her original songs have been recorded for movie soundtracks. So, exceedingly interested in hearing her, I decided to check out Wilhoite's Living Room on Monday, April 4 at 7: 30 pm. What a fun and exciting surprise was in store! (more...)
