Aired on KSDS-FM on 6/7/19 RUN DATES: 5/29/19 - 6/30/19 VENUE: North Coast Repertory Theatre The only path to a serious discussion is frivolity. So says Andrey Botvinnik, the fictional Russian arms negotiator in Lee Blessing’s drama, “A Walk in the Woods.” His American counterpart, John Honeyman, totally disagrees. These men may have the fate of the world in their hands, but Andrey forces John to talk about Mickey Mouse and Babe Ruth. He wants to be friends, not enemies Read More →

Aired on KSDS-FM on 6/14/19 RUN DATES: 5/3019 - 6/30/19 VENUE: The Old Globe The ground beneath our feet is shifting. Things are changing at an alarming rate.

Posted at TimesofSanDiego.com on 6/17/19 RUN DATES: 6/12/19 - 6/29/19 VENUE: Moonlight Stage Productions You want a big, brash Broadway musical? Boy, can Moonlight Stage Productions deliver. The company opens its 39th season with a boffo, brassy, bawdy hit: “Mel Brooks’ The Producers.” Using the outrageous, ab-fab Broadway sets and costumes, and re-creating the original direction and choreography (both Tony award-winners for Susan Stroman), the production values simply can’t be beat.

But when it’s done right, as at Scripps Ranch Theatre, under the crackerjack direction of Francis Gercke, it’s downright uproarious. The wild 1969 comedy, written by English actor/writers Ray Cooney and John Chapman, is set in the top-floor London flat of Mr. and Mrs. Markham. What starts out as Read More →
