Frank Groucho

Frank Groucho

Frankly, one should be  a fan if choosing to attend An Evening with Groucho starring Frank Ferrante. Definitively and decisively. As a true Groucho Marx fan, this could be an evening that’s highly entertaining, producing aching sides and sore facial muscles. Ferrante resembles Groucho Marx and sounds a bit like him too, though his words […]

Real Women Have Curves

Real Women Have Curves

My primary reason for recommending the Pasadena Playhouse’s newest production, Josefina López’s Real Women Have Curves, is Blanca Araceli. Playing Carmen, mami of the well-read, restless, feminist, ambitious Ana and the creative, stressed, worried, and relentless Estrela, Araceli inhabits her character completely. She doesn’t need half of the first act to breathe and get into […]

Waterfall

Underworld Clown Bar

Underworld Clown Bar

Underworld. Clown. Bar. These three words existing in a single sentence catapults us—instantaneously—down, down, down to a cold, dark place to which we’d rather not go. And, upon further reading, our initial visceral reaction may not be far off. Clown Bar, currently enjoying extended shows at Red White + Bluezz (and in conjunction with the […]

On April 13, 1865, the war is over and Caleb DeLeon returns home to Richmond, Virginia to find the family mansion in ruins. Surprisingly, it is being guarded by the family’s elderly house slave Simon. These two men are later joined be another family slave, young John. Officially, there are no such things as “master” […]

Breakfast with Sleeping Beauty & Her Winter Knight

Breakfast with Sleeping Beauty & Her Winter Knight

The Pasadena Playhouse presents Sleeping Beauty and Her Winter Night and what’s the holidays without a dose of fantasy and romance— rational, realistic, or otherwise? Children (perhaps primarily of the female persuasion) will be thrilled to know that breakfast may be enjoyed with the fair maiden of the tale, as well as other fairy tale […]
