BWW Spotlight Series: Meet Scott Jackson Who Discovered His Love of Acting After College and Now Graces Stages in the City of Angels
by Shari Barrett - Mar 31, 2020
With the current theatre world on hiatus, I have created a Spotlight Series which features interviews with some of the many talented artists who make our theatre community so exciting and vibrant thanks to their ongoing contribution to keeping the Arts alive in the City of the Angels. And I wanted to find out how are they dealing with the abrupt end of productions in which they were involved. This Spotlight shines on Scott Jackson who discovered his love of acting after college and now graces stages in the City of Angels. He had just wrapped portraying George Deever in a sold-out production of ALL MY SONS at Pacific Resident Theatre in Venice when the entire theatre world was forced to shut down.

BWW Review: Arthur Miller's ALL MY SONS Examines Accepting Responsibility, Loss, Love and Hope for a Better Future
by Shari Barrett - Jan 15, 2020
Arthur Miller's electrifying family drama ALL MY SONS won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best New Play and Miller his first Pulitzer Prize when it first opened in 1947, and went on to be a recipient of numerous Tony Awards. Inspired by a story from an Ohio Newspaper on an aircraft factory's troubled contracts during WWII, the tale remains as timely as it is timeless about pointing your finger at someone else rather than soil your own reputation by taking responsibility for your own actions, a personality trait all too evident in today's society.
