Engaging the Audience

As many of us know here in Los Angeles, finding, maintaining and engaging an audience is a very difficult task. Something Equity seems clueless about, but for many of you who have been in the trenches for the past two decades, this is what it’s all about: where is my audience and how do I engage  them so they keep coming back to see our work?Some companies have formed niches and have found perhaps a small but committed audience, 24th Street Theater works hard to stimulate the people who actually live in t...

Can I Get a Translator?

Just need a little help on this review’s headline from Jennifer K. Hugus over at Los Angeles Beat.I feel sorry for this particular writer’s Thesaurus, because after something like this there’s no way it could have survived and clearly it must’ve either been put down or retired.Here’s the headline in question:Wendy Graf’s All American Girl: Culminates in Explosively Inadvertent Catharsis to International Incendiary Adversity! Anybody?It’s got an exclamation point at...

"Father, Son and..." Holy Crap that Was Good!

I knew I was in trouble the moment I heard the title, “Father, Son and Holy Coach.”Ever been in a Christian gift store?  You find some really ludicrous items in them.  Like tee shirts with graphic etchings of Jesus’ hand with a nail driven into the cross and his blood flowing out to spell “Jesus loved you so much it hurt!”   Or plaques that read, “Christians aren’t perfect, just forgiven.”And there’s always this totally kitsch line of cheap ce...

Wombat Man: The Cereal Murders

Playwright Chrisi Talyn Saje has co-opted the 1970s animated “Trix Are For Kids” TV commercial, elevating it into the central dramatic throughline of Wombat Man: The Cereal Murders, an imaginative if not always adroitly executed satire of the campy 1960s Adam West-starring Batman television series, essentially a spoof on a spoof. Saje’s super hero of choice is monumentally clueless but sincere Wombat Man (Brian Cunningham), doing battle with Trix the Rabbit (Kerr Lordygan), whose maniacal desire to...
