L. Ron Hubbard Theatre Presents TINHORN'S DAUGHTER
by Christina Mancuso - Nov 6, 2015

The L. Ron Hubbard Theatre located in Hollywood, one block west of the Chinese Theatre, will feature a live production of the western romance, 'Tinhorn's Daughter' this coming Saturday, November 7 and 14. Heralded by many theater goers as the friendliest theatre in Hollywood, you will be made to feel totally welcome in this intimate, family-friendly, cabaret-style environment by the theatre staff and will enjoy complimentary refreshments as part of the experience. Story description: In the Big Sky country of Montana, before the railroad brought civilization to the state, Samuel Colt's 'Peacemaker' settled disputes in a less than a peaceful way-enter Sunset Maloney, faster than lighting with a six shooter. Sunset is the only man able to take on tinhorn, Slim Trotwood, a cruel, land grabber who by fraud or by force has accumulated vast areas of valuable land. It seems simple until the Tinhorn's Daughter enters the picture. November 7: With the current Academy of Western Artists (AWA) award winner and Western Music radio chart topper, Ian Espinoza, as pre-show entertainment, guests are guaranteed a great night out. November 14: The UK's top swing band, The Jive Aces, will be providing pre-show entertainment with enough energy generated to light up the town. Enjoy a great show, a night of live Hollywood intimate radio theater and cabaret-style comfortable seating (where every seat in the house is a good seat). The best way to spend Saturday night in Hollywood. Doors open at 7 pm, show begins at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $15 per person. http://www.galaxypress.com/theatre-los-angeles/theatre-schedule/ The performance cast: Narrator - RF Daley Slim Trotwood - Tait Ruppert Sunset Maloney - Jeff Larson Betsy Trotwood - Lindsay Seim Bat - George Kokkoris Smith - Carlos Moreno Tom/ Simpson - Skip Harris Music: November 7 - Ian Espinoza November 14 - The Jive Aces Tinhorn's Daughter by L.

BWW Reviews: Odyssey Theatre Ensemble Presents ANNA CHRISTIE as a Total Sensory Experience
by Shari Barrett - Feb 3, 2015

Every once in awhile I am blown away by an innovative and excitingly creative theatrical production which surprises me both physically and emotionally. Such was the case when I experienced Eugene O'Neill's ANNA CHRISTIE at the Odyssey Theatre Ensemble. The incredible cast stars Zoe Perry alongside her real-life father, Scandal's Jeff Perry, and Grey's Anatomy's Kevin McKidd as the play's trio of iconic characters who create an explosive mix, each struggling for salvation.
