Jeffrey Scott

Jeffrey Scott Celebrating 3 decades as an actor/director/choreographer/producer/educator, Jeff is honored to be bringing BroadwayWorld.com review to the Conejo Valley. Having trained with and/or mentored by some of Broadway greats and movie and t.v. legends (Annette Cardona, Jaime Rogers, Gary Imhoff, Toni Kaye, the people of the Los Angeles Music Center and the Beverly Hills Playhouse), Jeff brings his unique style of educational directing to the writing process and hence forth, into his reviews.
As a shy young teen, Jeff was told by a teacher to “get out of his shell” by volunteering at the local neighborhood community theatre. This was in 1984 and he hasn’t stopped since. Having been involved in over 300 productions throughout Southern California, primarily in the Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, Jeff has worked in almost every theatrical medium from Shakespeare to Sondheim, Melodrama to Mozart (and almost everything in-between). Jeff continues to work, professionally, as a director/choreographer/educator within the Ventura and Los Angeles Counties within many professional and local companies and colleges and universities throughout the area.
Jeff is a member of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society, the California Educational Theatre Association, and is a former member of Actors Equity Association.
Currently, Jeff is enjoying his recent role as a “late in life” student, pursuing his B.A in Performing Arts from the LEAP Program out of St. Mary’s College. Then, it’s on to his M.A. Stay tuned.

April 10, 2019

'All My Sons' is the story of Joe Keller (played by the engaging Mark Belnick), a successful, middle-aged, self-made man who has done a terrible and tragic thing, by framing his business partner for a crime that caused the death of hundreds of servicemen from World War II, and engineering his own exoneration. Now, his son Chris (the charismatic Jack Tynan) is about to marry the partner's daughter (the solid Alexis Boozer Sterling), the incident is revisited, and his lie of a life is unraveled.

BWW Review: AMERICA ADJACENT and MAMMA MIA at Skylight Theatre Company and Agoura High School
February 20, 2019

I had the pleasure of attending two performances from two opposite ends of the professionalism spectrum. One being a student directed, high school musical (well produced and performed, by the way) and the other a dramady produced by a well-respected theatre company chock-full of industry professionals both onstage and on the artistic side. But what they both had in common was that both of them experienced technical issues and the differences in how each handled said technical issues.

BWW Review: AS YOU LIKE IT at Camarillo Skyway Playhouse
February 12, 2019

William Shakespeare's comedy 'As You Like It' plays through March 10th at Camarillo Skyway Playhouse.. A story of love and the rocky road to union, reunion, and redemption. Duke Senior (the versatile Mary Comstock) has been banished and her rule usurped by her brother Frederick (the ever- present Chris Clyne). Senior's daughter Rosalind (the prominent and formidable Ryanna Dunn) and Frederick's daughter Celia (the capable Libby Baumgartner) are best friends, and when Frederick suddenly banishes Rosalind, the two women disguise themselves and flee to the Forest of Arden, where the banished duke has taken refuge. Orlando (the stalwart Benjamin Blonigan), with whom Rosalind has fallen in love, also ventures into the forest to escape a villainous brother of his own. In this forest of witty fools, foolish wise men, men who are women in disguise, and people finding their true selves, love will blossom, villainy will be redeemed, and Nature will nurture all.

BWW Review: CARRIE, THE MUSICAL at M&W Theatre Group
February 12, 2019

In this contemporary musical version of the famous (and infamous) 1978 movie adapted from the 1974 Stephen King novel, Carrie: The Musical follows a young woman with telekinetic powers. An outcast at school, where she is bullied viciously for her differences, Carrie (played by the very capable Tianna Cohen) is also lost at home, with a fervently and obsessively religious mother (the powerful Leah Dalrymple) whose love traps her and figuratively and literally wont let her go. When PE teacher Miss Gardner (the vocally strong Jeanette Airen), kind classmate Sue Snell (the poignant Malissa Marlow...who also directs the production), and boyfriend Tommy Ross (Broadway-calibur Noah Canada) reach out to try and help Carrie, it seems that for once, Carrie might have a shot at being accepted. But Chris Hargensen (Choreographer Kena Worthen), the class's most vicious bully along with her whipped boyfriend Billy Nolan (the bleach-blonde Conner Stevens), have other ideas. Pushed to the brink, Carrie's powers threaten to overwhelm her, and destroy everyone around her.
