The essence of Latino Theatre Company's monumental production of A MEXICAN TRILOGY: An American Story is beautifully captured in the simple photograph above. In this starry night scene, a family poised on the edge of major change looks to the infinite sky with hope. Quietly, in these few moments of silence, we as audience members know exactly how they feel. For what parent has not dreamed of providing a better life for his or her children and what child has not longed for a future where dreams come true?

It's OPENING NIGHT.  The night we've all been waiting for… working towards… dreaming about.  Aside from rehearsing the show, we've also spent loads of time and attention picking out the right gifts and greeting cards to congratulate our fellow company members and, of course, choosing the fiercest, sexiest, most stylish outfits for the after-party. Duh.

Growing up in Canada in the 1950s, Rich Little never dreamed that he would eventually turn his love of movies and storytelling into a career in show business. His ability to impersonate celebrities led to a career that has lasted more than five decades, and he continues to perform. He describes how he got into show business and shares stories about the many people he impersonated along the way in a new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Relayed as if it's just a story, 'Little by Little (People I've Known and Been)' shares Little's early days from imitating his teachers as a teenager to a successful record spoofing Canada's prime minister to hit shows in Vegas and everything in between. One highlight was his appearance on 'The Judy Garland Show,' his second U.S. television appearance. Little went on to work with - and imitate - hundreds of celebrities. A short list of stars appearing in his behind-the-scenes stories includes George Burns, Bing Crosby, Jimmy Stewart, Jack Benny, John Wayne, Cary Grant, Burt Lancaster, Ed Sullivan, Carol Channing, Howard Cosell, Paul Lynde and Orson Welles. Politicians also weren't immune from his act: George H.W. Bush, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton all have been immortalized by his impressions. Little also shares memories of his loving family both growing up and his wives, children and grandchildren. Dozens of photos with celebrity friends and colleagues as well as family shots complete this compelling look at Little's incredible career and passion. This is the first book for Little, known as the 'Man of 200 Voices,' who has appeared on television and stage for more than five decades and is one of only a few entertainers to have stars on all four Walks of Fame: Hollywood, Las Vegas, Canada and Palm Springs, Calif. Rich, who was born in Ottawa, Canada, is performing 'Rich Little Live!' in Las Vegas and touring around the country. Little also is launching his new self-written show 'Little by Little,' which takes the audience on a trip down memory lane - a show he hopes to take to Broadway.

Every artist, composer and master craftsman has a secret project on the side, an endeavor pursued simply for creativity's sake. For Hennessy Master Blender Yann Fillioux, it was "Master Blender's Selection N1", which in contrast to the many celebrated Cognacs he has composed throughout his distinguished career, this latest blend is a very personal signature that was only ever meant to be produced in a single, limited batch.

Till We Meet Again, an independent film from 2015, written by its star Johan 'John' Matton and directed by Bank Tangjaitrong, has been playing film festivals and picking up awards as Best Film. As I read the description, I thought, 'Oh no, not another film about young lovers with relationship difficulties! After five years of living together, this couple have reached the point where they must explore options. They need to find themselves.' This type of story has been done to death, so what makes this film so special?

Two days after Typhoon Merbok descended on Guangdong province, three theatre professionals from New York descended on the American International School of Guangzhou to begin a ten-day intensive program for twenty-nine students from the fourth to the twelfth grade. In our first three days, we cast each participant and taught all the music and half the staging and choreography for our hour-long show. Much like the rain, our pace was strong and driving, and much like the ninety-degree temperatures, our energy was high and sweat-inducing.

Quirky and surprisingly unexpected, playwright Jen Silverman explores a delightfully fresh and edgy new take on the formulaic 'opposite personalities that live together' paradigm in the new dark comedy THE ROOMMATE, now continuing its West Coast premiere performances at Orange County's Tony Award-winning regional theater South Coast Repertory through January 22 in Costa Mesa. Consistently winsome and, at times, touchingly relatable, the play unveils two very complex, rather dysfunctional individuals you still ultimately want to root for and watch blossom into better people as we watch them long to transform their lives.
