The Full Monty

E-mail Print

The Full Monty is taken to mean the removal of all clothing, and it comes from a British film about six men who prepare to perform a strip tease in order to get enough money to help support their families after they have been laid off from their factory jobs in Buffalo, NY. It was a surprising success when it premiered in 1997, and it was swiftly adapted to the stage by Terrence McNally (book) and David Yazbek (music and lyrics) in 2000. It was nominated in nearly every category for the Tony Awards that year. Yazbek won for Outstanding Music.

Kinky Boots

E-mail Print

Tony Awards often depend on what shows comprise a Broadway season. In 2013,  Kinky Boots was nominated for Best Musical along with Bring It On: The Musical, Matilda The Musical, and A Christmas Story, The Musical. Against those offerings, the splashy exuberant show created by its talented team (Harvey Fierstein-Book and Music and Lyrics-Cindy Lauper) garnered many awards when it debuted, including Best Musical, Best Score (Lauper), Best Choreography (Jerry Mitchell), Best Orchestrations (Stephen Oremus) and Best Sound Design (John Shivers). The touring show that has returned to the Pantages for a two-week run provides all the bells and whistles needed for an entertaining evening.

Children of Eden

E-mail Print

Stephen Schwartz claims that his score for Children of Eden is his favorite. Of course, most composers feel that way about a show which they feel has never gotten its due. And, while Children of Eden is performed regularly by community and church groups, professional productions are rare, and the show is unlikely to ever have a Broadway production.

The Revisionist

E-mail Print

Most people know Jesse Eisenberg as a film star. But Eisenberg has published a book of short stories and written three plays which have been produced in New York. One of them, The Revisionist, is enjoying its Los Angeles premiere at the intimate Lovelace Studio Theater.

Casa Valentina

E-mail Print

There’s something odd about the Casa Valentina and its guests. One might even call it queer. Though, as Harvey Fierstein’s Tony-nominated play reveals, that word is too loaded with other connotations. Certainly many of the locals in this peaceful corner of the Catskills would consider the goings on at best bizarre and, at worst, deviant. That’s because Casa Valentina provides a haven for cross-dressing men. It's an opportunity for them spend whole days in their wigs and frocks without the shame and danger they face in the outside world.

Mozart vs. Salieri

E-mail Print

The ever-inventive Josh Shaw, Artistic Director for the Pacific Opera Project (POP), uncovered the fact that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri faced off against each other in an actual competition in 1786. While Mozart’s reputation as a composer has been elevated almost to deification since his early death, Salieri, who was probably the more popular musician during his lifetime, was virtually forgotten for centuries. That is, until playwright Peter Shaffer, inspired by a short Pushkin play, brought Salieri back to life as the jealous anti-hero who killed Mozart in Amadeus.

Anton in Show Business

E-mail Print

Jane Martin’s Anton in Show Business opens with a brilliant monologue in which T-Anne (Courtney Sauls) excoriates the American Theatre, minimalist productions, New York-centric thinking, non-salaried work, Actors’ Equity, and Los Angeles. If no other writing in the play ever rises to this level of inspired satire, there are still plenty of laughs to be found in this sharp revival running at the Hudson Theatre.

Varla Jean Merman's Big Black Hole

E-mail Print

Varla Jean Merman’s Big Black Hole has brought the titular (Something tells me she likes that word) Varla Jean back to the Renberg Theatre after an astounding decade-long absence. This is not to say that Varla Jean (the nom de drag of Jeffrey Roberson) hasn’t been busy. As the only positive consequence of the ill-fated marriage of Ethel Merman and Ernest Borgnine, Merman fille has been busy with the nightclub, film, and television appearances that naturally come to theatrical royalty.

Future Thinking

E-mail Print

Playwright Eliza Clark and Director Lila Neugebauer have successfully collaborated in South Coast Rep's world premiere staging of Clark’s Future Thinking. Not only is Future Thinking as thematically current as the latest iteration of Star Wars, it is also a psychologically profound character study, touching upon the perils of celebrity and the problem of social alienation. And, what's more, it's a comedy, albeit a dark one.

The Merry Widder

E-mail Print

Premiering in the first decade of the 20th Century, Franz Lehar’s, The Merry Widow became an international success story that spawned multiple productions and revivals, enormous sheet music sales, numerous recordings, desserts, hats, and even ladies’ unmentionables. The score was plush and romantic -- the quintessence of European Operetta.

Spotlight

The 30th Annual Robby Awards

Since 1974 when theater critic Rob Stevens invented the Robbys to spotlight the multitude of strong theatrical productions being done locally, the evening has taken on a near-cult following. The nomination list reads like a who's who and what's what of Los Angeles area theater. From small to large venues, Stevens seeks them out and nominates a fine list of plays, players, and those who toil behind the scene. The names are familiar, but he doesn't exclude new talent either. The evening is a paean to our unique LA theater scene. The award itself is a bus, since the first show was held in a LA bus station. Quirky, yes, but lots of fun and a chance for the year's best productions to be recognized and for the principals to meet and greet.

BEST MUSICAL

Assassins, Red Blanket Productions

Big Fish, Moonlight Stage Productions

Billy Elliot The Musical, McCoy Rigby Entertainment

Los Angeles Drama Critics Announce Nominations for 2015

The Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle (LADCC) has announced its nominations and special awards for excellence in Los Angeles and Orange County theatre for the year 2015 (Dec. 1, 2014 – Nov. 30, 2015). The 47th annual LADCC awards ceremony will take place on Monday, March 14, 2016 at The Ann & Jerry Moss Theater at New Roads School, in the Capshaw-Spielberg Center for Arts and Educational Justice at the Herb Alpert Educational Village, 3131 Olympic Blvd., Santa Monica, CA. (There is some onsite parking and ample street parking.) All event tickets are $40, and can be purchased at www.brownpapertickets.com (small service fee applies) or at the door if available. (Purchased tickets will be held at Will Call.) Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for our Silent Auction, hors d’oeuvres, and cash bar. The show will commence at 7:30 p.m. Further information will be found at www.ladramacriticscircle.com. Inquiries to: 2016criticsawards@gmail.com.

 

The awards will be hosted by Jake Broder, accomplished actor, writer, musician, and composer whose original music for Miravel, a play he also wrote and starred in at Sacred Fools Theater, has been nominated as one of the year’s outstanding scores. Broder co-wrote the acclaimed musical bio Louis & Keely Live at the Sahara, and originated the role of “Louis Prima.” Musical director Corey Hirsch, recipient of a 2014 LADCC award for A Man of No Importance and one of the busiest musical directors on the local scene, will appear for the third consecutive year.

The evening’s theme will be “OUR THEATER IS UNIQUE.” We will be mindful of the ways in which the theatrical art in general, and local theater in particular, are like no other art forms.

One or more plaques will be presented in each of 18 categories. Two of those achievements have already been voted plaques. For Writing (Adaptation), Luis Alfaro will be honored for Mojada: A Medea in Los Angeles, produced at The Getty Villa by J. Paul Getty Museum and The Theatre @ Boston Court. The McCulloh Award for Revival—for a production of a play originally written between 1920 and 1980—will be presented to Anna Christie, produced by Odyssey Theatre Ensemble at the Odyssey Theatre. In addition, six special awards will also be presented through the sponsorship of organizations to which the LADCC is most grateful.

The LADCC special award recipients are as follows:

The Margaret Harford Award for sustained excellence in theatre goes to Deaf West Theater Company. The award is accompanied by an honorarium, sponsor to be announced, and will be presented by Circle member Sharon Perlmutter.

The Ted Schmitt Award for the world premiere of an outstanding new play goes to Qui Nguyen for Vietgone, originally produced by South Coast Repertory. The award is accompanied by an offer to publish by Samuel French, Inc., and will be presented by Circle member and event producer Bob Verini.

The Polly Warfield Award for an excellent season in a small to mid-size theatre goes to International City Theatre. The award is accompanied by an honorarium funded by the Nederlander Organization, and will be presented by Circle member Shirle Gottlieb.

The Kinetic Lighting Award for outstanding achievement in theatrical design goes to projections designer Jason H. Thompson. The award is accompanied by an honorarium funded by Kinetic Lighting, and will be presented by Circle President Margaret Gray.
