East Lynne Theater Company presents the world premiere ZORRO!
by BWW News Desk - Jul 8, 2014

The award-winning Equity professional East Lynne Theater Company's next production is a swashbuckler: the world premiere of 'Zorro!' based on Johnston McCulley's 'The Curse of Capistrano' (1919) adapted by James Rana. Spanish for 'fox,' Zorro fought the oppressive colonial government in Spanish California with a quick sword and wit. Wearing a mask, he kept his identity secret, even to The Woman he loved. In 1939, Bob Kane and Bill Finger gave credit to McCulley's masked avenger, with his dual identity, as their inspiration for 'Batman.' Like Bruce Wayne and Batman, Don Diego and Zorro are never seen together at the same time. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Ken Ludwig's LEADING LADIES Are Ravishing at GCT
by Don Grigware - Jul 21, 2014

Playwright Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo as well as Leading Ladies) is one of a dying breed of American farceurs. How many presently exist? In the UK, yes, there are many. Farce is their specialty, but not in the US. So, that given, Leading Ladies is a uniquely special ode to the theatre, to Shakespeare and to that band of traveling actors who make little money but devote their lives to entertain us, and to comedy put forth at a breakneck pace. Thanks to Ken Ludwig and his Leading Ladies our lives are that much brighter. Now in an especially exhilarating production at GCT James Castle Stevens skillfully guides a fiercely talented cast through August 16. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Laughter Abounds During TWELFTH NIGHT at Carlson Park in Culver City
by Shari Barrett - Jul 20, 2014

While there is speculation that Twelfth Night was written for the 12th night of Christmas by request of Queen Elizabeth, a holiday which celebrates revelry by turning the world upside down, with masks, music, dance, celebrating a moment where servants are masters, masters are servants, and not all seems as it should be. While there is no proof for this speculation, it was certainly the author's and this production's comic inspiration. (more...)

Nikki Durrance Flees Misogynist Husband in 'Déjà vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon'
by BWW News Desk - Jul 12, 2014

In Déjà vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon, latest novel by Kathy Holmes, 'Woman escapes misogynist husband on a quest to find herself and when she meets a man who appears to be Mr. Right, her life lessons are tested. Can she save herself or will it be déjà vu all over again?' Twitter was in an uproar about the Santa Barbara incident and women were sharing their thoughts on misogyny with the hashtag #YesAllWomen. This topic hits home with many women and author Kathy Holmes shares her experience through her fictional character, Nikki Durrance in her latest novel, Déjà vu at the Blue Diamond Saloon. The book blurb reads: 'Nikki Durrance escaped the worst nightmare of her life when she fled Las Vegas for San Francisco, leaving her misogynist husband behind at the Blue Diamond Saloon. So when the perfect Dr. Mike Fischer proposes, she accepts. But when her new Mr. Right begins to transform into a man just like her ex-husband, she begins to question everything, including her sanity. "Nikki longs to trust Mike, but with an overwhelming feeling of déjà vu, Nikki's fear propels her into discoveries of betrayals and underworld connections that will send her running for her life again.' Often when a marriage or a relationship ends, women jump right into the next relationship without analyzing what went wrong. And divorce #1 leads to divorce #2. Too often women are attracted to the same type of man and without taking that much-needed time to analyze what went wrong, they repeat their mistakes. Holmes was called a 'trendsetter' when she published her first novel Real Women Wear Red followed by Real Women Sing the Blues as part of her 'Real Women' series. But she believes in empowering women in a non-aggressive way. One of her trademarks is that her novels are often set in fun locales. And The Woman is taken by surprise when in the midst of living her fabulous life, she discovers her life really isn't working after all and she is compelled to take inventory of her past and present in order to secure a happy future. For more information, see kathyholmes.net. (more...)
