Broad Comedy - 2018 - Off-Broadway

Ever wonder what would happen if Kate McKinnon and Samantha Bee had a child and hired Tim Minchin as the manny? We have the answer! Bringing you politically savvy comedy since 2001, Broad Comedy is a nationally touring, award-winning, all-women musical comedy and sketch troupe that is made up of five irreverent, hilarious, and ridiculously talented women to whom nothing is sacred-except an unflinching and uproarious look at our culture. Just when you need them most, the Broads are here-as Gloria Steinem said about them-to "help you laugh at the bastards." ...Though you might think twice before bringing your conservative mother-in-law!

Serving as the gloriously buoyant 56th season-opening production at Orange County's South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa, AMERICAN MARIACHI---which continues performances through October 5, 2019---is a wonderful play about the love of family and the love for achieving personal dreams. Playwright José Cruz González's joyful, musical-leaning play combines gorgeous music with broad comedy and touching drama that gives a fresh spin to the story of pioneering women subverting expectations to achieve their dreams in a world dominated by men's old world outlook.

When the set for a play has more doors than anything else, you may be in store for a classic door-slamming farce, complete with perfectly timed entrances and exits, mistaken identities, confusion, and madcap antics. Newport Playhouse provides just that with their current production, the light and breezy Boeing Boeing.

For playwright Adam Bock's endearing new gay romantic comedy THE CANADIANS---now having its infectiously giddy World Premiere production at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa through October 20, 2019---the typical blueprint for the usual girl-meets-boy trope gets a fresh, heady spin and an inspired recast that elevates it higher that your average rom com. Sweet and endearing without having to be too sanitized for a mainstream audience, the play, overall, is simply a winning play that both straight and queer audiences can equally cheer for. Don't be surprised if even you shed a tear or two for its touching, absolutely satisfying climax.

by Julie Musbach - Nov 20, 2018
The group of 35 women were applauding and laughing. It had been a pee-in-yer-pants kind of funny and insightful day at this retreat. "Improvisation For The Spirit" is an internationally touring women's retreat that uses improvisational theatre games to access one's inner creativity. Led by Katie Goodman of Broad Comedy, Camp Equinox, and Spontaneous Combustibles in Bozeman, Montana, this self-help workshop is unusually inspiring.

Grace Jasmine writes in a variety of genres. With 47 nonfiction books in print, she decided to return to her first love, writing for theater. She sat down to talk with us about her work The Masher about to open as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival. I love your logo. It looks so eerie, like the child from Les Mis turned inside out. I love bizarre tales. How did you get started writing in this style? Is this your first play for the Fringe Festival?

Max Vernon's new musical The View UpStairs sees its Bay Area premiere in Ed Decker's appealing production at the New Conservatory Theatre. This is a time-traveling tale that allows multiple generations of the gay community to intermingle and confront the complexities of building queer communities throughout the ages in the charming UpStairs Lounge in New Orleans, the site of one of the most violent incidents in the gay liberation movement of the 1970s.

Antic in a Drain (Artistic Director, Ross Travis) proudly presents its world premiere production of Tempting Fate, a satirical sideshow entertainment reflecting the house of mirrors called climate change. Balk at the science, bemoan the social impacts, and scream in horror at the political divide. You'll find yourself laughing at the grotesque hyperbole, and the fantastically fecund characters bedecked in disdain and hubris. See Mother Earth talk trash to those who bite her tit while suckling her life-giving abundance.

Playwright Terry Ray's Electricity, the story of two gay men trying to figure out how they fit into each other's world, is a powerful reminder that we are worthy of being loved, even if we think we are broken. Not to mention, you'll laugh your past off.

Painted Alice follows Alice, an artist struggling with painters' block, as she distances herself from her partner and accidentally falls through her canvas into a visual art-inspired wonderland. In this strange world rife with self-indulgent artists, she meets a variety of outrageous characters that challenge her idea of success and help her answer the question, 'does domestic bliss cause artistic death?'

Lisa (Anna Stefanic) opens the door to her home and switches on the light.  A naked man is sprawled out on the floor with food.  He 'bellows a pained roar.'  She shrieks, fumbles her groceries and quickly douses the offending brightness.  When she turns the light back on, a paper shopping bag has been placed on the man's head.  'God damn it, Davey' she says.  The damnation of that moment will carry through the very funny Soul Survivor.

The family-friendly fun of Lythgoe Family Productions' annual holiday British Panto returns to the Laguna Playhouse, this time with the reimagined Yuletide re-telling of PETER PAN & TINKER BELL: A PIRATE'S CHRISTMAS, which continues through December 29, 2019 in the city of Laguna Beach. Overall, the show is an amusing, energetic Panto, though admittedly not as over-the-top as the two previous holiday Panto's that I have seen staged here. Still, the show had me smiling the whole time, and it's safe to say that you and your family will like sharing the experience, too.
