The Bitter Lemons' Family

This picture was taken at the Fringe Awards last night and in a moment that is still bringing me to tears with laughter as I write this, when we were introduced to come to the stage, Enci Box (the woman in the picture and co-founder and publisher of Bitter Lemons) decided to bring her two kids London and Sydney to the stage with us. But here's the funny, Ben Hill introduced us and said "Colin Mitchell and his Bitter Lemons family...". And then of course "the family" mounted the stage. read more

What to See in Los Angeles Theater: Your Weekly LemonMeter Update

As we sail into the final weekend of Hollywood Fringe 2015, I wanted to remind everybody, that yes, indeed, there are scads of shows out there rockin' the boards that are amazingly not a part of the Festival! Egads! More theater! read more

Listen to the 2015 Hollywood Fringe Bitter Lemons' Critics Panel

The beauty of recording something is that you can then compare it to those that reported on that something and see how well that reportage turned out. Apparently, Paul Birchall's reportage was a bit off and he's made several corrections since the original publication. I never asked for any of them, but I appreciate, Paul, his editor Rob Kendt and the crew at AT doing their best to be as fair as possible. read more

The Fringe So Far (and a Fringe Even Farther)

Well we're about two thirds of the way through the 2015 Hollywood Fringe Festival, LemonHeads, and I have to say that overall, for me, the quality of the work has been head and shoulders above that of any of the previous years. I've seen almost 20 shows and of course there are always going to be clunkers and worthy failures, and there have been, but overall I have been mightily impressed by the derring do and the professional execution by the artists this year. read more

New Lineup Announced for Bitter Lemons' Critics Panel at the Fringe

Either out of protest to this recent editorial, where Jason Rohrer had the audacity to apply the same standard of criticism to Steven Leigh Morris that Steven Leigh Morris applied to our Bitter Lemons Imperative, or simply out of a desire to not want to get caught in the middle of the controversy and perhaps get their hands dirty, several of the announced LA critics have decided to pull out of the event at Theatre Asylum this Saturday, June 20th at 11:30am. We have replacements... read more
