Waste Land is a WORLD PREMIERE tragicomedy by legendary playwright Don Nigro, exploring the tumultuous love between T.S. Eliot and his first wife, Vivienne during the creation of one of the most influential poems of the twentieth century. Full of literary references, musings about art and creativity, and appearances by recognized modernist characters like Ezra Pound, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein and Bertrand Russell, Waste Land is a literary rollercoaster ride into Eliot's life, loves, friendships and torments.

Review: Laugh Your Way Through a Musical Screwball Ride ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURYReview: Laugh Your Way Through a Musical Screwball Ride ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
by Shari Barrett - Aug 20, 2017

The glamorous passenger train Twentieth Century Limited, which ran between New York and Chicago between 1902 and 1967, is the main setting for the musical screwball comedy ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY now playing through August 27 at the Pan-Andreas Theatre, 5119 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90038. Based partly on the 1930s film and play of the same name, the musical, with book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green and music by Cy Coleman, is part operetta, part farce, and part screwball comedy telling the story of the behind-the-scenes relationship between Lily, a temperamental actress and Oscar, a bankrupt theatre producer. The duo, played with great skill and comedic timing by Alena Bernardi and Wade Kelley, recount the tale of their adventure traveling from Chicago to New York in the 1930s as Oscar tries to cajole the glamorous Hollywood star into playing the lead in his new, but not-yet-written drama, and perhaps to rekindle their romance.

BWW Review: BROADWAY BOUND Rounds Out Neil Simon's Eugene Trilogy at Theatre Palisades
by Shari Barrett - Sep 22, 2015

BROADWAY BOUND won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, making part three the most serious of the Eugene trilogy plays in which we find Eugene and his older brother Stanley trying to break into the world of show business in 1949 as professional comedy writers while coping with their parents break-up and eventual divorce. Along the way, their material is broadcast on the radio for the first time, making the family upset to hear a thinly-veiled portrait of themselves played for laughs. Of course everyone else in their Brighton Beach neighborhood sees themselves in the characters, but that does lessen the hurt felt by their grandfather and parents when the show airs. (more...)

"Man is conceived in sin and born in corruption... there is always something." These are the words of Willie Stark in Robert Penn Warren's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, All the King's Men. Although it was written in 1946, Warren's story of secrets and the misuse of power extends much deeper than the political arena, and it remains as relevant today as ever. Nola Productions presents this poignant piece, as adapted by Adrian Hall, now running through September 15 in the Historic El Portal Theatre's Forum Theatre in North Hollywood. BroadwayWorld has more production photos below. (more...)
