by Cindy Marcolina - Mar 24, 2017

Leon Fleming tackles mental issues, family, poverty, struggle, and hope in his new play Kicked in the Sh*tter. Her (Helen Budge) and Him (James Clay) - brother and sister with an unprivileged upbringing of poverty - show what it means to live in a constant state of instability caused by depression and anxiety, in a place where everyone seems to be against them. It is through their eyes that Fleming's audiences see the actual overwhelming despair that comes when everything becomes too much to handle, and the play becomes a relevant, valid depiction of mental illnesses told in sincerity and with a no-nonsense attitude.

BWW Review: FOREVER PLAID Musically Encourages Everyone to Follow Their Dream
by Shari Barrett - Feb 28, 2017

FOREVER PLAID by Stuart Ross is a musical that lends itself to offering audiences a goofy, charming musical escape, and is considered one of the most popular and successful off-Broadway musicals in history. Having never before seen a production of it, I have always been curious why those who have either been in a production or seen the show are such outspoken fans of it. Those involved with the show speak of the 'brotherhood of Plaid' that exists between those who have performed or directed the show previously, with the understanding that if called upon at any time to take part in a production of the musical, it would be a crime to not jump in and make the show an audience favorite. So when I was invited to the current production at the International City Theatre in Long Beach, I jumped at the chance to see what all the fuss is about. (more...)
