Review of Sierra Madre Playhouse’s Production of Mitch Albom’s “Tuesdays with Morrie” by Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher

If you are interested in a play about a friendship between a student and his beloved sociology professor, look no further than Sierra Madre Playhouse’s
 production of Mitch Albom’s “Tuesdays with Morrie” by Jeffrey Hatcher and Albom at Sierra Madre Playhouse in Sierra Madre, CA through March 31st.
This is the story of a friendship between a nationally-known professor at Brandeis University suffering from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) 
and his famous sports journalist of a former student who has more questions than answers. 
 Within this moon glow of a relationship, two major questions are advanced:
1.What is friendship?
2.Who is God?
The former builds on stage throughout as the master, here referred to as coach, slowly withers away before us, the audience, but not before 
changing the student from a self-involved, time-absorbed professional to a kindred spirit unafraid of showing the love and freedom in his heart of hearts
and soul of souls.  The latter defined by the love displayed by both men.  One in coming to terms with his mortality, and the other by learning 
the meaning of life by releasing the inner light most of us are afraid to let shine and taught to hide. Read more

Review of Group Repertory Theatre’s Production of One-Acts LAUNDRY AND BOURBON and LONE STAR by James McLure

If you are interested in two one-act plays that intertwine through time and place, run do not walk to The Group Repertory Theatre’s production of
James McLure’s “Laundry and Bourbon” and “Lone Star” at The Lonny Chapman Theatre in The North Hollywood Arts District through March 3rd.
These are the stories of three women and three men who come together separately on a hot day in Maynard, Texas in the early 1970’s for tales of
love, marriage, desperation, betrayal and, ultimately, redemption.
“Lone Star” completes what “Laundry and Bourbon” begins with grace, aplomb and passion.
These are six authentically human characters presented by the Louisiana-born and Jesuit-educated playwright as nothing less than strong, funny, but, undoubtedly, vulnerable and wounded
people.

Review of CAPS-ATC Productions Presentation of Bertolt Brecht’s “The Jewish Wife” and Jean-Paul Sartre’s “The Respectful Prostitute”

If you are interested in two plays about racial persecution that are motivated by and echo in today’s world, run do not walk to The CAPS-ATC Productions’ presentation of
Bertolt Brecht’s “The Jewish Wife” and Jean-Paul Sartre’s “The Respectful Prostitute” running through December 9th at T.U. Studios in The North Hollywood Arts District.
Both plays tell stories of suffering, doubt and paranoia.  The first, translated by Eric Bentley, of a Jewish wife in Berlin, Germany in the late 1930’s leaving the world she knows behind because of
the impending and
looming threat of the Nazi Party and its brutal and final anti-Jewish solution, is simple but profound in plot, intent and execution.

Review of Group Repertory Theatre’s Production of William Shakespeare’s ROMEO AND JULIET in North Hollywood, CA Arts District

If you are interested in a new concept of old-fashioned love, make a beaten path to The Group Repertory Theatre’s successful adaptation of
William Shakespeare’s “Romeo And Juliet” running through October 14th in the North Hollywood Arts District.
Set in pre-World War II Berlin, Germany, where Romeo is a German boy and Juliet a Jewish girl,
this brand new version of the more than 450-year-old play manages to hold onto its luster and heartbreak at the same time.
The language dances, dodges and demands.  It ascends to the turquoise sky while descending through lush valleys and aqua green oceans with the
beauty of a black eagle soaring and the sophistication of Audrey Hepburn in the Oscar-winning film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
The words have never sounded more appealing, passionate and refreshing.  The metaphors powerful and explosive.
This Shakespeare is as pure as possible given the fresh twist.

Review of Rabindranath Tagore’s SACRIFICE by Radomir Vojtech Luza

If you are interested in an epic play with dancing regarding the philosophical, spiritual and religious differences between a country’s king and chief priest, run do not walk to the
CAPS Productions presentation of “Sacrifice” by legendary Bengali playwright Rabindranath Tagore running through July 22nd at The Broadwater Theatre in Hollywood.
This story of the King of Tripura banning blood sacrifices at the temple of Goddess Kali and the affect it has on the Chief Priest, who stops at nothing to defy him,
is nothing short of a tragic classic that reminds us why we are alive.
Through sheer simplicity, grandeur and deep thought the playwright takes what could have been a simple tale of the clash between spirituality and religion to new heights
 worthy of being produced and read until the end of time.
The language is moving, poetic and lyrical.
