We were delighted to hear from Flo Selfman, President of Independent Writers of Southern California… Twice a year IWOSC presents a special FREE event – “IWOSC Reads its Own” – a spellbinding afternoon of eclectic, eccentric, and exemplary works – from poems to true stores to hilarious monologues and beyond, read aloud by distinguished IWOSC scribes.

The Tempest & Merry Wives

The Tempest & Merry Wives

On a rise the stage is set. On the grass, the chairs are settles, the blankets spread. Suddenly the wind shifts and the ocean begins to roll and froth. No, this isn’t watching an incoming storm along our dramatic coast, but the opening scene of Shakespeare’s Tempest. Shakespeare by the Sea arrives, once again, for […]

Scare L.A. in Pasadena

Scare L.A. in Pasadena

It may be hitting the mid-90s and a far cry from the cooler fall temps in late fall when we dress up as blood suckers, princesses, and pirates, but it’s time to have a Halloween-immersion in August at Scare L.A. Scare L.A. calls the weekend-long event a “season teaser” with “haunt entertainment professionals” meaning designers, […]

Touring Old Pas

Touring Old Pas

Most of us remember when Old Pasadena was not a destination of choice. When Pasadena Heritage was founded 37 years ago, “saving” and restoring Old Pasadena was a top priority. Pasadena Heritage’s trained docents know the history, fun facts, and unusual details of Old Pasadena – and they’re willing to share! On August 1st, rise […]

Live at the Park

Live at the Park

Nothing quite says summer like a supper picnic in the park with a blanket spread on the ground, already-abandoned mini-me beach chairs for the little ones, a few camping chairs for those who can’t get down the ground (or up) so easily anymore, and—with the sun setting and the spotlights coming up—the sound of instruments […]

Always…Patsy Cline

Always…Patsy Cline

Houston housewife Louise Seger first heard Patsy Cline in 1957 on the Arthur Godfrey show and became an instant fan. The two met before a 1961 concert, struck it off immediately, and passed the whole night chatting in Louise’s kitchen. After that night, they kept up an active pen-pal relationship. Years after the 1963 plane […]

Dharkan: The Heartbeat of a Country

Dharkan:  The Heartbeat of a Country

At an early age Mobeen Ansari contracted meningitis, which “impacted his hearing, eyesight, balance, and ability to detect colors” (issue.com). It seems these difficulties have not held back Mobeen Ansari. In an effort to have the world see his homeland of Pakistan through loving eyes as he does, Ansari photographed Pakistani artists, humanitarians, actresses, and bus […]

Opera Kadabra

Opera Kadabra

It’s part stand-up comedy, part magic show, and part operatic oldies but goodies. The video we watched had baritone Patrick Bell of Opera Kadabra singing “Largo al factotum” from Barber of Seville by Rossini…as he escapes from a straight jacket. As an assistant tied him into the straight jacket, Bell chatted, made jokes, then he […]

Sauna Sundays

Sauna Sundays

“I’m interested in space and the way people interact in space,” says Michael Parker, creator of the Steam Egg, now exhibiting at the Armory. The Steam Egg is a steam room in the shape of an egg with 2,000 mirrors over it. “I initially made it thinking that it was an experiment in and looking […]
