Anonymous Audience Member: "That show makes me want to punch theater in the face."

Saw a couple shows this weekend, Andre & Dorine down at the LATC and Helsinki West's I Gelosi over at Six01 Studio. The above quote, taken directly from my traveling companion for both show was reserved for the latter show. While I'm fine putting my name to everything I write I'm keeping this person's name anonymous to protect the innocent. And while I didn't have quite as an extreme reaction as my companion did, I do have to concur with the overall sentiment. read more

Critique of the Week (On a Monday)

Deborah Klugman is fast becoming one of my favorite theater critics in LA. Her work at Stage Raw and the LA Weekly, is brusque, to the point and succinct. She is reaching Bill Raden-esque levels with her ability to say much in a short period of time. As she does in this week's COW below. Would love to see what she could do with a freer platform and more room to really explore her subject matter in more depth. Then again, some shows only deserve 300 words. read more

LA Times Picks up on Equity's Mishandling of the Evidence Room

We were the first to pick up on this latest incompetence from the Equity leadership dealing with the Evidence Room and to highlight Bart's letter when we saw it on Facebook, then there was an actual official press release that got some play over at Gia On the Move and now David Ng and the LA Times finally step in to pick up the crumbs. read more
