“Speaking Out – Taking A Stand – Musically - That’s What “ROAR” Is All About!”
THE GEEK AUTHORITY - By Lorenzo Marchessi
Artistic directors Gary Lamb and William A. Reilly run Crown City Theatre like a theatre should be run – they use talents from all extremes of performance, acting, dancing, singing and even fresh stylistic events and shows! “ROAR” is no exception. Performed only at Crown City Theatre in North Hollywood. If you like music. You love this. If you like live performance musicians, a rockin’ band, you’ll love this. If you like classic songs of the long past, the more recent past and even new songs of the day. Again, you’ll love this!
‘Midnight Special’, ‘Where Have All The Flowers Gone’, ‘The Power of Love’, ‘Born In The USA’, ‘Respect’, ‘America’ (Neil Diamond), ‘American Pie’, ‘La Bomba’ are just some of the songs to name a few in this two act performance piece of the this band that call themselves ‘The 1st Amendments’! Featuring songs from artists like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and many more!
Conceived and written by Davitt Felder and featuring over 25 songs in two acts, it’s the musical journey through time. About songs that had something to say about society, protest songs that spoke of America and how it resonated in music and song over the decades. It’s a clever fun way to see how the world was envisioned at the time when these songs actually debut to listeners of America. Including a few original tunes as written by Davitt himself.
