The Lady Was A Gentleman

“An Amazing And Talent Theatre Troup Of Women, And “The Lady Was A Gentleman” Is A Jewel Of A Play To See!”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi

This is the West Coast premiere of a Broads Word Ensemble production of a uniquely charming and funny play produced by Tara Donovan and Danielle Ozymandias and it's called “The Lady Was A Gentleman” and it's performed at the Dorie Theatre at the Complex in Hollywood. It's a wonderfully uplifting and positive piece of friendship, careers and the desires of women from all walks of life. The performances are sharp. The story is touching and the characters are just plain fun to see.

According to its own press release it's an, “…An examination of love, identity, race, and gender that is sure to leave you laughing out loud as celebrated actress Charlotte Cushman goes on (another) farewell tour of the U.S. with her personal assistant Sallie, a free black woman, and an ever-expanding entourage of adoring younger women….”. But I would say it's about women in a lesbian world going about their business at the turn of the century and discovering who means what to who and everything from the frolicking fun, innate jealousy and even how pride can get in the way.

Written by Barbara Kahn and artfully directed by Kate Motzenbacker, this is a positively fun and inventive play about women who love women and how romance sees no boundaries or borders. Kate did a remarkably good job making the audience feel right at home using the remarkably honest and believable story written by Barbara. It's a fanciful tale of feelings and emotions written with much heart and put together and staged for theatre in a very inviting way.

SPRING SHORTS

 “Whitefire's “Spring Shorts” Is The Funniest Yet! Clever, Wild and Real!””

THE GEEK AUTHORITY -  Lorenzo Marchessi

This is one of the best, if not ‘the' best “Spring Shorts” of the shorts I have seen – to date - in the wonderful original theatrical experience that is the Whitefire Theatre's series called “(Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall) Shorts”. Snuggled in a very warm and friendly theatre in Sherman Oaks just off Ventura Blvd., in this Tuesday installment of the regular ‘menu of magic of theatrical entertainment' this theatre has to offer.

Producer Jake O'Flaherty, needs to take a much needed bow for the time and temperament (not to mention patience) it takes to gather up writers, actors and production people to make a wonderfully fun evening like this to happen.

Each sequence, meticulously directed by Bryan Rassmussen, is refined and tuned to make your funny bone tickle, to make your laughs be heard and above all, give you an experience of mixing great writing with a dash of good talent to make an evening you'll thoroughly enjoy!

The Importance Of Being Earnest

 “Such Fun, Such Color And Such Humor GCT's “The Importance of Being Earnest” Is Family Fantastic!”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY -  Lorenzo Marchessi

Glendale Center Theatre did it again with an amazingly fun production of Oscar Wilde's “The Importance of Being Earnest” and it has the light-hearted humor of the original text as it is cast with some wonderful performers to delight young and old alike.

First performed on February 14th in 1895 at the St James's Theatre in London, it's basically a farcical comedy in which the two main protagonists maintain fictitious persona to escape what appears to be their obligatory social obligations. Working in the environment of Victorian London of the year 1895, the play's takes the subject of marriage, commitment and even love to the extremes and the resulting are satirical of Victorian ways. In other words, things (or people) are not always what they appear to be.

Producer Tim Dietlein and director Zoe Bright (who also dazzled us in the play as well) gathered an ensemble of performers that will surprise you with this well-seasoned writing of Wild's while giving it a flavor of smartness that is relevant in today's society. Zoe made it light and fun and let the actor's roll with their personalities with very comical result.

MURDER, ANYONE?

“Frantic Comedy Twists & Turns In This Fun Farce Called “Murder, Anyone?” At The Whitefire Theatre!”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY -  Lorenzo Marchessi

It's farce. It's fun and above all it will surprise you with hysterical twists and turns from characters that evolve right in front of your eyes. It's called “Murder, Anyone?” and it's at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks. It's an original play that is premiering on the west coast that tells the story of two very different writers collaborating on a stage play (or screenplay) – or stage play. They can't decide. The results are hysterical as the audience sees all their adaptions, changes and rewrites right as they change them. For better or worse, always usually funny, the changes are nonsensical and often way over the top.

Produced, written and directed by Emmy-winning writer (for ‘Animaniacs' and ‘Pinky and the Brain') Gordon Bressack, this is an ‘Airplane' meets ‘Police Squad' ish type of production. Gordon sets two writers on a mission to write a play, or a movie, or a play, or a movie, or….the elements and unique things that make a play a play or a movie a movie, are mashed up as the story of murder and how it happened changes by the minute with very surprising and funny results! The end all is basically what two writers write verbally and then seeing it come to life on the opposite end of the stage. It's fun.

Theatre Rocks

“Keeping Theatre Alive With “THEATRE ROCKS!” At Theatre West's Fantastic Fund-Raising Event!”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi

Theatre West and ‘News of Spite Productions' presented this wonderful night of food, fun, drinks and music as the fight to keep Theatre West and Theatre itself alive was brought together in a warm and wonderful night of Rock'N'Roll. Why? As you know our current ‘orange wart' of a POTUS is cutting, slashing, destroying everything from environmental controls, education, healthcare, safety controls and much more from all Americans – one of the other treasures he's slashing is the Arts. From public televisions, to grants for all arts, music and theatre, basically this POTUS (of an orange wart) is hurting funding and something long-lasting, high-quality and culturally enlightening as Theatre West is part of the collateral damage due to this current white house administration. (Okay, off my soap box now.)

Designer and host - actor, writer, director, singer, musician, pharmacist, zoologist.(wait – not the last two), David P. Johnson – took a forward step and created an evening of amazingly fun, some original and nostalgic music and put it all in a fund-raiser for Theatre West and called it “THEATRE ROCKS!” And it Rocked! It' Rolled! It was just plain fun!

Tales From Tomorrow

“Sci-Fi Brought To Life On Stage With Witt And Humor – That's FON's “Tales Of Tomorrow””

THE GEEK AUTHORTY - By Lorenzo Marchessi

Force of Nature Productions at the Eclectic Theatre in North Hollywood present “Tales From Tomorrow” – and what a refreshing feeling of originality this was to see. With five original stories, albeit Sci-Fi based in their theme, with a spark of intrigue, through provoking concepts and much more humor and humanity in them – you are in for a real treat as an audience.

Artistic director and producer Sebastian Munoz has put together this ambitious production with great care and heart and presents the following;

“Manservant 3000” written by Thomas J. Misuraca, directed by Sebastian Munoz and featuring Sasha Snow, Anastasia Elfman, Chris Campbell and Benjamin Fuller. From beginning to end writer Misuraca gives you twist and turns as this short unravels a very interesting concept of Artificial Intelligences (AI's) and the reality of ‘what' is real and ‘who' is not. Chris Campbell gives an uplifting funny and entertaining performance as his character – well – changes a lot in a very humorous way. Sasha and Anastasia hit it out of the park with their camaraderie that again is not what it appears to be in a very very funny way! Now throw in Benjamin and you get a ‘real' sense of having your own robot/android as your – well – it was just so much fun you have to see it – with again – a surprise ending! Director Munoz nailed the moments where you needed to be as an audience and gave us a wonderful ride!

The Accidental Club

“ “The Accidental Club” Is A Fun, Witty, Musically Enhanced, One Woman Show - That's Smart About Celebrity Afterlife!”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi

Awareness media presents the West-Coast premiere of this fantastic one-woman show called “The Accidental Club” performed at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks. It's a dynamic and wonderful showcase for performer Sherrie Scott who wrote and performs all the songs and brings to life all the personalities that have either left us long ago and those who departed so very recently as well.

Who am I talking about? Well the incredible talents of Sherrie will introduce you to her character - Mira, a washed up – drug-addicted rock star who, well, 'crosses over' to meet some incredible people. People who have died going the way of ODing process. People she runs into and talks with (with some creepy convincing personifications I might add) – are; the cigarette puffing Billie Holiday, the British spicy youth of Amy Winehouse and of course, the legendary easy-going, full of expression and gravely voiced Janice Joplin! All - played by Sherrie herself. She does the gestures, motions, walk and even the brow of her eyes changed and morphed into making you believe these long-gone music icons are all really right there in front of you!

Of Mice and Men

"Steinbeck's "Of Mice" Is Amazingly Engaging And Amazingly Moving At Theatre Unleashed!"

THE GEEK AUTHORITY -  Lorenzo Marchessi

Theatre Unleashed at The Belfry Stage, upstairs at the Crown City Theatre in North Hollywood presents one of the most gut-wrenching and classic of John Steinbeck's plays – “Of Mice and Men” – and it's performed in all of its full and dramatic visceral intensity here on stage! Directed by Aaron Lyons, who gave a wonderful canvas for these performances to bring this heartfelt and timeless story to life. I have always loved this story and especially productions of this story because it brings home to a lot of people, the feelings of being misunderstood and friendship and how sometimes bad things happen.

“Of Mice and Men” is a powerful novella written by Steinbeck and it was first published in 1937, which tells the story of George Milton and the mentally disabled Lennie Small who are two displaced migrant ranch workers who move from place to place in country sides California in search of new job opportunities during the Great Depression in the United States.

MARTHA

“ “Martha” Will Literally Dance Into Your Heart With Passion And Soul!”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY -  Lorenzo Marchessi

The Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks presents the West Coast premiere of a wonderfully engaging dramatic show centered around the amazingly talented and iconic dancer/choreographer Martha Graham, and it's called “Martha”.

It's a detailed and thought provoking one-woman show starring the impressively talented performance of Christina Carlisi as the pro-dancer/choreographer herself. Martha Graham herself said, “Each one of us has all of life in us, and it is our choice to decide what we will reveal. How many drops of blood have gone into making you? How much memory is in that drop of blood?”

Christina will absolutely blow you away with her humor and smart choices of attitude and making the life of Miss Graham seems so real and like she's right in front of your eyes. Her energy was always high but her moments of dance moves, mixed with the witty commentary of all the people who affected the later part of her life, will keep you on your ‘toes (Pun intended.) She actually shows you how much ‘memory' is in every drop of blood!

THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi

It was called “TAKING FLIGHT!” (this years theme) and the Saturday mid-day segment of the annual event was called “BABIES, BODIES AND MOTHERS” – and it highlights and honors women in the arts that I happened to see this year. Everything from poetry, to art, dance, music, acting, comedy and so much more! I am always amazed at how creative and visually interesting as well as heartfelt and extremely funny these performers can be every year. It's called The Los Angeles Women's Theatre Festival”!

Co-Founded in 1993 by Adilah Barnes, the Los Angeles Women's Theatre Festival (or LAWTF) which now marks its 24 years of producing and myriad (almost 500 total) of extraordinary talented and multicultural solo performers and artists from all over the world. It is the longest-running yearly solo festival for women in Los Angeles, and for 24 years now, it has been showcasing heart, passion, originality and all the colors of living in all forms of mediums and in all forms, artistic styles. Held at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood as well as the Electric Lodge in Venice, this is a series of showcases you should at least see one set every season if not as much of the whole program over the four days (includes opening and closing events/dinners/awards too) as you can.

BIG FISH

“Wonderful Story & Good Songs, “Big Fish” Is A Simple But Fun Show!”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi

The Kentwood Players at the Westchester Playhouse in Los Angeles present “Big Fish” – which is a musical with the music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and the book written by John August. It is originally based on Daniel Wallace's 1998 novel which later became ‘Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions' – which then evolved into the 2003 film “Big Fish” with the screenplay written by John August and popularly directed by the master of unusual himself, Tim Burton.

The play is produced by Lori A. Marple-Pereslete for the Kentwood Players and is directed by Catherine Rahm with choreography by Alison Mattiza – the production is a little slow in pace overall and some the casting choices seem a little odd based on who they are supposed to represent, but the warmth and humanity still forces its way through.

April, May & June

“Theatre 40 “April, May & June” Is A Wonderful & Compassionate Drama About Family & Love”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi

Theatre 40 in Beverly Hills has an amazing original production about three sisters clearing out their homestead where they grew up since their mother's passing. It's called “April, May & June” – and yes, those are the names of the three sisters. Produced by David Hunt Stafford with a very concise cast the play was artfully directed by Terri Hanauer. Terri gave this very real and earthy script about real sisters and their feelings about each other, their father and especially their mother, an incredible warmth and passion that makes you feel like you are as invested in them as they are in each other. I loved this production and especially really enjoyed the performances of these young actress as I had a real sense of family and familiarity between them.

“Theatre 68 Has Excitement & Drama With The Energized “Danny & The Deep Blue Sea”!”

A wonderful charged drama, being performed in North Hollywood at Theatre 68 - “Danny And The Deep Blue Sea” was an engaging and riveting look into two broken lives that meet and share a course of the same insecurities and angst while learning they are more alike than dislike. Ronnie Marmo directed this piece with nothing more than a few simple sets and lots of dialogue and two very colorful characters that just light up the stage with their amazing performances.
“Danny And The Deep Blue Sea” was written as an off-Broadway play back in 1983 by John Patrick Shanley who is an American playwright, screenwriter, and theatre and film director whose play “Doubt: A Parable” won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama as well as the 2005 Tony Award for Best Play and in 1988 won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his film”. “Doubt”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi

“A Democracy is a terrible thing to waste…” – that's this plays PERFECT tag line for this wonderful comedy of a cartoon meeting of two real historical persons. In these very troubled times with that bigoted, anti-American ‘orange wart' sitting in the command seat of our country today – it's refreshing to see an original play that takes our situation currently and making it laughable in a realistic way. Producer Racquel Lehrman of the Theatre Planners presents a purely amazing piece of comic wonder, at the Lounge Theatre in Los Angeles. It's called “Transitions” – and it's a very intelligent and hysterical look at November 10th, 2016 – when President Barak Obama meets with President (gag-me) -Elect Donald J. Trump for a ‘get-to-know-you transitional meeting' between the two.

North Hollywood; Zombie Joe's Underground Theatre Group; “Artificial Flowers” – check it out. It's not often you see a play and feel entertained, shocked, surprised and then the biggest shock comes after the play is over. I generally don't read programs or set lists or organizational flyers for productions, plays and events I see – I like to be surprised and at best, entertained at what is coming. From the moment it started, I was intrigued with this young female lead and by time it was over I was thinking, ‘…what a complicated, layered story this is - with a very dynamic performer that took the audience on this very dark and troubled journey…' – really, I was thinking those exact thoughts.

Bye Bye Birdie

GTC Is Musically Charmed With “Bye Bye Birdie” – A Feast of Family Fun And Fantastic Talent!”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi

Glendale Center Theatre has done that family magic again with an amazing and colorful production of “Bye Bye Birdie” first opening on Broadway in 1960 – this is truly a fun musical comedy set in the year 1958. It's about love, career, ambition and the idea that fame and fortune is not necessarily tied to money and the job you do but more what makes you honest, happy and true to the people you care about. It was that stereotypical family, the ‘Elvis-like' superstar and of course music you will be singing along with and some you may have heard before.

With the music written by Charles Strouse and the lyrics written Lee Adams- it all comes together in the book that Michael Stewart had created this wholesome and iconic story around these 50's-60's rock'n'roll songs and ballads including the ever so cheery “Put on a Happy Face!”

LUSTING AFTER PIPINO'S WIFE

“Theatre 68's “Lusting After Pipino's Wife” Is Smart, Fun And Hysterical To See!”

THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi

Theatre is at its best when it surprises you with everything from emotionally charge dramatic scenes to musically enhanced storytelling lyrics or just keeping you laughing at characters that you can understand and relate to with wit and charm and Theatre 68's production of “Lusting After Pipino's Wife” in North Hollywood does just that. It's adult themed relationships with a smart edge that will make you empathize with each character and in turn – at the very least - will make you smile and – at best – laugh out loud.

Smartly and reality-centered writing as done by Sam Henry Kass and produced and directed by Ronnie Marmo (yes Vinnie himself) – this is a show of uniquely written short scenes that are tied together by a ‘wife' (Pipino's wife) that is never actually seen, but talked about, in a narrative style that makes for some very funny situations between two sets of best friends – one male and one female – and how they quite accidentally cross and intertwine with each other. Ronnie did a really smart job making the audience understand and relate to each and everything all four of these characters go through – and did it with a lot of humor and charm.

Jamaica Moon Productions and GGC Players present a very funny series of vignettes in two acts of what is essentially romantic sketch comedy that is original, witty, charming, surprisingly smart and often very very very funny - and it's called “Love Always” – performed at Grey Studios in North Hollywood.

This compilation of scenes was very smartly and humorously written by Renee Taylor and Joseph Bologna and produced by Chad Doreck, Lauren Plaxco and Jade Warner this romantic farce contains some fresh new and original characters that will simply have you in stitches in some scenes. I would have dropped one small scene from each act in order to savor the very funny moments of what was strong – in order to keep the humor lasting. As it is, it's all very funny albeit just a little on the long side.
