    AN AMERICAN IN PARIS at Segerstrom Center for the Arts: So Beautiful I Cried.

    I’ve never been a huge fan of the film An American in Paris, but when I read Entertainment Weekly‘s article about its history and its impact on La La Land, I was intrigued. When I heard that the Broadway musical was on its way to the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Orange County, I was excited to go– although I couldn’t remember why I hadn’t loved the film. When the curtain fell and I was in tears at how beautiful […]

    Check Out Hans Zimmer Shredding at Coachella to THE DARK KNIGHT Trilogy

    Hans Zimmer has some time on his hands thanks to “retirement”.  Last weekend he made a stop at Coachella and played his biggest hits from his career.

  • South Coast Repertory presents the world premiere of “A Doll’s House, Part 2” by Lucas Hnath, directed by Shelley Butler. Featured here: Shannon Cochran (Nora)

    A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 at South Coast Repertory: Well-executed, but do we need it?

    One of the questions I ask a lot after seeing a sequel or remake or reboot of anything iconic is: Did we need that? I asked it after seeing the new Ghostbusters movie last year, which was good, but not something I think we needed. I ask it every time anybody tries to do anything with Dirty Dancing. (ABC, I am talking to YOU right now: NOBODY WANTS YOUR TV REMAKE.) And it’s the question I found myself asking after […]

    South Coast Repertory’s “THE SIEGEL” is Worth Seeing Twice

    Although the homonym quality of Michael Mitnick‘s new play’s title evokes Chekhov’s The Seagull, and although the program includes a thoughtful article by Jerry Patch that references the Chekhov play, I don’t think the average audience member will walk out of The Siegel feeling like they just spent 80 minutes laughing at the “futile pursuit of romantic happiness.” Maybe that’s what we were all doing, as my sister and I laughed along with the rest of the audience through the entire single-act play, but […]

    Whether you know Ben Feldman as Ginsberg, the unbalanced ad man who gave Peggy his nipple in a box on Mad Men, Fred, the guardian angel on Drop Dead Diva or from his current gig on NBC’s Superstore, you can get to know him in a new, in-person way starting this Friday at South Coast Repertory Theatre in Orange County. Feldman will be sharing the spotlight with Mamie Gummer, Meryl Streep‘s talented daughter (who I thought was the bright spot in […]

    HARRY POTTER Film Concert Series Returns to Orange County’s Segerstrom Center for the Arts

    I re-read the Harry Potter books recently, in preparation for finally reading “Cursed Child,” and afterwards I thought it would be fun to rewatch the movies. I’m going to file what happened next under “exceeded expectations,” because just as I started thinking about this, I heard that the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, in Costa Mesa, CA, will be screening Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets as part of their series that pairs the films with a live orchestra! On […]

    Dine with The Doctor? Omaze is offering the chance…

    It is at great personal sacrifice that I share with you that Omaze is going to help some lucky person and her friend (it will be me- I will be the lucky person) dine with SEVEN DOCTORS in London and stay in a 5-star hotel, all in support of Red Nose Day. I just entered, because I would like to be the one breakfasting with David Tennant, Peter Capaldi, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann and Matt Smith. […]
