BWW Feature: Mark and Ryan Kleinman, Living the DreamBWW Feature: Mark and Ryan Kleinman, Living the Dream
by Jeanmarie Simpson - Apr 23, 2017

I am incredibly proud of all my kids and Ryan is pursuing his dream as a performer. He has been performing for quite awhile now as a professional and I have had the idea that this would be so since about his Junior year in High School. I have always taken the time to include my kids (when they have shown an interest) into the shows I was doing. Ryan and his older sister, Kaitlynn, were able to be more inundated with it at a young age as I was more active as a professional performer and they got to be backstage and at rehearsal, and often in shows with me. Whenever I was in a show that needed kids, I got them an audition and, since they were talented, often got cast, so we were able to share the stage. Sound of Music, South Pacific, Music Man, Secret Garden, A Christmas Carol, all shows that my kids been able to share with me. (more...)

Starring two-time Tony Award winners Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole, War Paint tells the remarkable story of cosmetics titans Helena Rubinstein (LuPone) and Elizabeth Arden (Ebersole), who defined beauty standards for the first half of the 20th Century. Brilliant innovators with humble roots, both women were masters of self-invention who sacrificed everything to become the country's first major female entrepreneurs. They were also fierce competitors, whose 50-year tug-of-war would give birth to an industry that would forever change the face of America. From Fifth Avenue society to the halls of Congress, their intense rivalry was ruthless, relentless and legendary-pushing both women to build international empires in a world dominated by men.

BWW Review: A CONVERSATION WITH CHEECH MARIN Reveals His Amazing Life from Pot to Pottery via the Streets of South CentralBWW Review: A CONVERSATION WITH CHEECH MARIN Reveals His Amazing Life from Pot to Pottery via the Streets of South Central
by Shari Barrett - Apr 1, 2017

No doubt those of us who survived protesting the Vietnam War in the mid-60s will remember CHEECH AND CHONG, the comedy duo featuring two very different L.A. street kids who bucked the rules and openly smoked and promoted the use of marijuana at a time when doing so guaranteed a stint in jail. As one member of that comedy duo, Cheech Marin came of age at an interesting time in America, starting out as a South Central L.A. street kid raised on 36th and San Pedro in the heart of the most violent area of our city, a place where by age 7 he had seen two homicides on his front lawn. But he was smart and destined to get off the mean streets and make a name for himself. (more...)
