Cirque du Giselle

If you're reading this to decide if you should see this show, the answer is YES! This is the sort of extravagant presentation you'd gladly pay $100+ to see at the Pantages or Music Center. It's got it all, a wonderfully talented and athletic cast, great costumes and staging, and ultimately an extremely moving and emotional story. With only two remaining shows on 6/22 and 6/23... GO!

Special

The true account behind “Special” and the ill-advised creation of the 1987 “Star Wars Holiday TV Special” has the very real potential to be the next “The Disaster Artist” (The Room) or the behind-the-scenes expose for Trolls 2, some of the sincerely worst popular entertainment ever created. And the fact that Bruce Villanch, the self-aware perpretator of this cringe-worthy extravaganza appears both on stage as a key character and was also in attendance in a the flesh on the night I attended made this the high point of at least my entire day! It all gets a little muddled with everyone playing multiple characters, and with perhaps too-much over-concern over how much Satire can skewer existing IP, but the core account here is certainly worth a look, and it's my New Hope that this ambitious and at times hilarious production will lead to an even more fully realized telling of this pop space-opera spaceship-wreck.

Nights at the Algonquin Round Table

This play so amazingly recreates the style I was unsure if it was a new play. Some of the best casting I have seen at a Fringe show as well. The cast recreates the style of the period without seeming stagy or disconnected to reality. One of the best written and acted theater pieces I have seen in Hollywood.
