I still remember where I was when I got the text. I bet you do, too. You know the one, that text from your child who is completely and utterly devastated not to have gotten a coveted part.

Playwright Josh Harmon's SKINTIGHT receives its west coast premiere at the Geffen Playhouse, already in previews. Daniel Aukin directs this neurotic family drama featuring the original stars of the Broadway production (Idina Menzel, Will Brittain and Eli Gelb), with Harry Groener, Kimberly Jürgen and Jeff Skowron rounding out the cast. I was lucky enough that Will Brittain (who plays Trey, the young, hunky boyfriend of patriarch Elliott) was able to squeeze in some time for me in his busy rehearsal schedule to answer just a few of my long list of questions.

The poor, drunken widower of a towns laundress morns for his wife, La Jesusa. But where does the guilt of this woman's death lie? A woman who has spent her life cleaning the wealthy's dirty laundry. This drunkard is not a good man but he knows intimately the filth we all leave for someone else's tired hands. This unblinking, and often hilarious look at the hypocrisy of the elite is just as fresh and relevant today as when the play first opened in 1960. Who is to blame for the death of La Jesusa? Perhaps all of us.

As politicians and pundits dissect the local election results, Duncan Macmillan serves up a blistering new adaptation of an 1886 work that feels eerily like a 2019 commentary. Move over, James Graham - it turns out Ibsen has supplied the political play for today.

The 20th Anniversary Tour of RENT (in its third year!) boasts a magnificent cast in a powerhouse production that celebrates the genius and imagination of its author, Jonathan Larson. The show, now on stage for a brief run at ASU's Gammage Auditorium, is, in every respect a compelling and intensely human narrative ~ a mix of exhilaration, wit, and poignancy. One after another of knockout performances bring life to Larson's memorable songs, and a solid gold orchestra, conducted by Matthew DeMaria, brings his music all the way home to the heart.

There's a scene in poet-turned-playwright Aziza Barnes' fast and furiously funny debut stage piece, BLKS, where the main characters, a trio of black Brooklyn women in their 20s 'out on a mission to resurrect our fly back' find themselves at the corner of Prince Street and Broadway, where the N,R subway station entrance displays the faces of Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in an ad for their Netflix comedy series, 'Grace and Frankie,' a show about two women who are there for each other during life's rough patches. In another time, the station might have shown an ad for 'Girls' or 'Sex and The City,' or any other such high-profile program where the default setting for the women who stick together is white.

Ahead of the release of their new album Across The Field on June 14th, duo House and Land have released the defiant, empowering single 'Carolina Lady.' Where the traditional folk song frames the titular lady misogynisticly as a prize to be won, House and Land reclaim power by eliminating the lyrics and replacing them with an improvised instrumental interpretation of the song's melody with electric guitar and fiddle, a testament to their agency and skill.

This is a must see; a reminder of what happened in the not too distant past and a push to think about our present and future.

I'm thrilled to announce that not only did they clearly accept that challenge, they superseded all expectations!

Things may have been quiet for the last decade on the “label” front, but the Elephant Six Recording Company -- home of The Apples in stereo, Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control, and more -- never really ever went away; I guess you could say it just took a really long nap. In 2019, the slumber is over as the E6 label imprint relaunches with a series of reissues, new albums, and some first-time-ever-released-to-the-public releases from the deep archives (we'll save that announcement for another time, but you won't believe it when we tell you).

Actress/singer par excellence Lisa Donahey presented her Big 50th Birthday Bash at Feinstein's Upstairs at Vitello's Friday July 19 and did an encore performance Sunday July 21. I attended Friday and had a great time. Donahey has an infectious personality. Her charisma is enormous, as she talks directly to her audience, including them in the repartee - with a bevy of surprises - and has a joyous time doing it. Backed by six extraordinary musicians* with virtuoso musical director David Arana at the keyboard, the show came in at almost two hours, but was so enjoyable, the time flew by, literally. Donahey had two glorious backup singers Lyndsay Dodoras and Billye Johnstone

Set in post-Nazi Netherlands, the story is delivered through the eyes of 9 year old Thomas and highlights his perspective on the domestic violence within his family headed by an abusive Christian fundamentalist. Underpinning the story is the great kindness that people are able to give despite their circumstances and the willingness to stand up for love even from a position of apparent powerlessness. I can't help but think of our own social problems here in New Zealand and how this play is an excellent reflection of how a community can overcome.

There are only two more chances to see Chris Causer & Jenilee Houghton's new play, "The Ballad of Lydia Pinkham's Magical, Miracle, Sure-Cure for All Female Weaknesses" playing at the Annoyance Theatre on Thursdays at 8pm.  Audiences have been raving about this hilarious, emotional, moving piece of theatre that celebrates one woman's journey to overcome the hate people feel empowered to spread when they can hide behind anonymity.  The relatability and heart within Houghton's script paired with Causer's masterful storytelling form along with Todd Risenmay's gorgeous original music are driving audiences to return week after week to see the show again and again.

'Based on a true incident' seems a phrase best reserved for a hardboiled television detective series, circa 1954 - perhaps followed by a title card reading, 'A Quinn Martin Production' (if you're of a certain vintage, you'll get my meaning) - but in the case of Bright Star, the Tony Award-nominated musical by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell now onstage at Cumberland County Playhouse through June 6, it's definitely fitting.
