The first performance for Brian Copeland's (in partnership with the Marin Cultural Association) The Best of San Francisco Solo Series at The Marin Center's Showcase Theater is Irma Herrera's solo show Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?, a new work that weaves history and comedic insights into stories about names, shedding light and throwing shade on societal prejudices and assumptions. When giving her name its correct Spanish pronunciation, Irma often gets the, 'where are you from?' question. The assumption: that she is a foreigner. Irma's family has been in South Texas for generations, and the award-winning social justice activist, lawyer, and journalist thinks of herself as American as apple pie.

According to Billboard, singer Ariana Grande has reached her 10th week at number one on the Billboard Artist 100 Chart with her latest album THANK U, NEXT. Billboard describes this chart as it 'measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.'
by Stephi Wild - Mar 20, 2019
In January, Ariana Grande dropped her latest single, and its accompanying music video, '7 Rings.' The song features her sampling the famous Sound of Music number, 'My Favorite Things.' According to The New York Times, the song just topped Billboard's singles chart for the sixth time. The song is credited to 10 writers, but Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, who wrote the original 'My Favorite Things,' control 90% of the songwriting royalties. That makes this chart-topping hit not only a huge victory for Grande, but a huge victory for the musical theatre legends as well!

BWW Review: Are You Bored? Well So Is Varla Jean As She Brings Her VARLA JEAN MERMAN: A STAR IS BORED To Joe's Pub
by Bobby Patrick - Jan 8, 2020
Surprisingly, the lady was not nearly as graphically bawdy as many of her contemporaries. Oh, there's innuendo and winks at naughtiness a-plenty, but there's no profanity and she lets the audience go the final steps into their own dirty minds without pushing them too much. For this rainbow reviewer, that's the mark of a true Pro.

BWW Review: SAMANTHA SIDLEY Brings “Something Cool” With Her Open Queerness And Her Smooth Jazz Stylings To The Stage At The Green Room 42
by Bobby Patrick - Feb 7, 2020
For all her sexy coolness though, her performance was right out front, bold, daring, and original... Coasting somewhere between the jazz of today and the pop world of the 60s, her amalgamation in sounds was perfect for the 2020s. In fact, her stylings ran such the amazing gamut from jazz, to swing, to pop, and even to the Broadway, BUT, because those stylings were so rooted in the vocalizations to be found in the works of great jazz artistes of days gone by, we have to say this lady is one of a NEW generation of great jazz singers.

In training for the acting profession yours truly studied ballet, and I was always the first to throw the line off. I could not dance...ballet or any other form. I know so little about dance, then how can I write about it? Well, when Matthew Bourne is involved, I am envelopped in magic. What a treat to attend a Matthew Bourne event! Yes, his ballet productions are events ... filled with magical storytelling without a word of dialogue. Like singers or actors, the ensemble tell the story through movement, with Tchaikovsky's gorgeous music to back it up. It's breathtakingly beautiful. Anger, violence and at the opposite extreme, sensual appeal, blatant or subdued, and love are the most readily reognized emotions in this art form. Bourne divides his production into four acts with an intermission between Ac
