BWW Review: GOOD PEOPLE at CV Rep Theater is Masterful
May 6, 2019

Almost everyone has fallen on hard times. Sometimes they're financial, sometimes they're emotional, sometimes they're both. It's how we get through them that defines us. A deep look into who we are, and what we will do to survive those times, David Lindsay-Abaire's 2011 play Good People explores all of that and more.

GOOD PEOPLE Comes To CV Rep Theater
April 5, 2019

MAYTAG VIRGIN at DezArt Performs At Pearl McManus Theater
March 29, 2019

He's a handsome Catholic widower, and she's got 'good legs for a Baptist', also recently bereaved. Together, this down-home odd-couple of next door neighbors generate sparks, laughs and more than a bit of Faulknerian introspection in Audrey Cefaly's Maytag Virgin, the season closer for Dezart Performs. Directed by Deborah Harmon, this 'Southern love story' is the ultimate offering of the critically acclaimed and almost completely-sold-out 11th Season from the award winning Palm Springs ensemble. The play runs April 5 - 14 at the Pearl McManus Theater (at the historic Palm Springs Woman's Club / 314 S Cahuilla Road, Downtown Palm Springs).

BWW Review: GREATER TUNA at Coyote Stageworks
March 29, 2019

Greater Tuna is a strange little play that was written in 1982 and was a huge hit in middle America before it made its way Off-Broadway, and eventually to HBO. There are three plays in the series, and Coyote Stageworks has mounted the first one as their final production in their 2018/2019 schedule as a nod to their first season.

BWW Review: ELECTRICITY at INNdulge Lights Up The Night
March 18, 2019

BWW Review: WHITE GUY ON THE BUS at Dezart Performs: There's No Safety in Numbers
March 4, 2019

The dramatist.com website describes White Guy on the Bus thusly: Week after week a wealthy white businessman rides the same bus, befriending a single black mom. As they get to know each other, their pasts unfold and tensions rise, igniting a disturbing and crucial exploration of race.' While that is true, it doesn't even come close to describing what a powerhouse of a play Bruce Graham has written, and in the case of DezArt Performs, what a powerful and humorous production in the hands of Director, Michael Shaw and his brilliant cast of actors. So, yes, it's about a white guy on a bus, yes it is about racism, but it is not heavy (okay, some of it is heavy, but it's steeped in story). The play deftly grabs your psyche, twists it, turns it and then messes with your perceptions on race - no matter how evolved you think you are - and smacks you full-on in the face, sometimes light-heartedly, and sometimes with a vengeance. Even if you think you're woke, you might find out that you're not. We'll get into that in a moment, but first, let's discuss Thomas Valach's set.

BWW Review: HONKY TONK LAUNDRY at Coyote Stageworks is Good Clean Fun
February 4, 2019

Country music is like cilantro. Either you like it or you don't. I fall into the latter category on both. It's not a snobby thing. My dislike for cilantro, I'm told, has to do with genetics and my country gene seems to either be latent or missing. I mean, all of my friends love it, and I'd like to get with the program, I swear. And someday maybe that latent gene will kick in, but for now neither are on my menu nor playlist. So, imagine my surprise when I found myself quite enjoying the two-character musical, Honky Tonk Laundry, a celebration of all things country.

BWW Review: PERFECT ARRANGEMENT at DezArt Performs - What's In Your Closet?
January 15, 2019

Everyone has a secret or two stashed away. We hide them for fear of being shamed or in some cases, worse. Shame is solely the product of 'agreed upon' societal 'norms'; if we don't fit into any given box then we have an Achilles heel, something others can use to hurt or destroy us. Mean girls, churches, and government have always been exceptionally good at shaming.
