Money to Burn - 2003 - West End

Lord Oliver Justin (OJ to his friends) is an aristocrat, Old Etonian, playboy, gambler, seducer and all round bounder... and, he's down on his luck. He's lost a fortune on the roulette tables and his businesses are going bankrupt due to his massive debts. And now his incredibly wealthy wife, Tiggy, has had enough and refused to give him another penny. What's a good, or even a bad man to do! There is only one way out... he must enlist some help... and his wife... must die! SLEAZE, LIES, KINKY SEX & MURDER!! Part thriller, part farce, part satire, and featuring a twist in the final moments. The twelve original songs are in a jazz pop style.

I once had the honour of interviewing the legendary Tommy Steele at the New Wimbledon Theatre. It was the venue where Half A Sixpence was first performed, and the show - which acted as a star vehicle for the talented young performer - became a classic piece of British musical theatre.

Skylight Books (1818 N. Vermont in Los Feliz) presents Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang on Wednesday, October 15 at 7:30pm. Skylight Books is thrilled to welcome acclaimed writer and activist Cory Doctorow and illustrator Jen Wang to present their new graphic novel, In Real Life. The story is about Anda who loves Coarsegold Online, the massively-multiplayer role playing game that she spends most of her free time on. It's a place where she can be a leader, a fighter, a hero. It's a place where she can meet people from all over the world, and make friends. Gaming is, for Anda, entirely a good thing. But things become a lot more complicated when Anda befriends a gold farmer - a poor Chinese kid whose avatar in the game illegally collects valuable objects and then sells them to players from developed countries with money to burn. This behavior is strictly against the rules in Coarsegold, but Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person's real livelihood is at stake. From acclaimed teen author Cory Doctorow and rising star cartoonist Jen Wang, In Real Life is a sensitive, thoughtful look at adolescence, gaming, poverty, and culture-clash. Cory Doctorow is a co-editor of Boing Boing and a columnist for multiple publications including the Guardian, Locus, and Publishers Weekly. He was named one of the Web's twenty-five influencers by Forbes magazine and a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. His award-winning novel Little Brother was a New York Times bestseller. He lives in London with his wife and daughter. Jen Wang is an cartoonist and illustrator currently living in Los Angeles. Her works have appeared in the Adventure Time comics and LA Magazine. Her graphic novel Koko Be Good was published by First Second. In Real Life is her second book. The event takes place on October 15 at 7:30pm. Skylight Books is located at 1818 N. Vermont in Los Feliz (cross is Franklin). 323-660-1175. Skylight Books is a general bookstore serving the historic Los Angeles neighborhoods of Hollywood, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Downtown. Skylight Books was named One of the Best Bookstores in America by USA Today.

Back in the 1970s and '80s, when the National Hockey League was at its pugilistic pinnacle, the joke was, 'I went to the fights last night and a hockey game broke out.' I thought of a variation on that theme last Saturday night (October 13) during a show at Town Hall that was part of the venue's eighth annual Cabaret Festival: 'I went to a Jekyll & Hyde musical convention tonight and a Linda Eder concert broke out.' Eder's audience showed up having imbibed the J & H Kool Aid, a toxic brew that makes one believe that some of the most manipulative, derivative and over-the-top musical theater songs ever written are Rodgers and Hammerstein classics incarnate. As most of the audience was transforming into grotesquely passionate full Jekkie mode, the show itself (co-starring former J & H stars Christiane Noll and Robert Cuccioli) manifested a spilt personality-part Eder concert, part J & H reunion show.

Making international waves with her award-winning self-titled breakout album in 2008 and Anxiety in 2012, Ladyhawke aka Pip Brown has returned with her third studio album Wild Things out today June 3 via Polyvinyl Records. Strapped with earworm hooks, shimmering synths, rib rattling beats and anchored by quivering title track which is an airy paean to cleaning up and settling down, the record is less about past demons and more a catalyst of what's to come.
