Audio Interview: Orson Bean and the cast of "Bad Habits" at Ruskin Group Theatre

The Sisters of St. Cyril’s are on a mission to prevent the closing of their convent and school. Might there be an “Almighty’ intervention to save them, in the form of a miraculous young woman named Maria? Or might God just sit this one out, leaving the Sisters to rely on their annual Christmas pageant fundraiser, which will be featuring a particularly surprising number? High adventure comedy, second to nun!*

Enjoy this interview with Orson Bean and the cast of “Bad Habits” at the Ruskin Group Theatre, running until Jan 26th. You can listen to this interview while commuting, while waiting in line at the grocery store or at an audition, backstage and even front of the stage. For tickets and more info Click here.

JOAN OF ART: A Must See Film, A Classic Play and Rediscovered Art

An amazing film with an electrifying performance by an Irish actress opens in theaters this Friday, June 21st. The film is called 'Wild Rose' and the electrifying performance is given by Jessie Buckley. This is by far my favorite film of the year.

Jessie plays Rose Lynn Harlan, a 23 year old wannabe country singer who dreams of going to Nashville. The film opens with Rose getting out of jail and from there we go on an amazing unpredictable journey with her as she tries to fulfill her dream of being a country star. Jessie is an incredible singer and that alone is worth the price of admission. Don't miss this film!

Death of a Salesman

Also opening on Friday is the Tony Award Winner for Best Play and Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Arthur Miller's 'Death of a Salesman' at the Ruskin Theatre located at the Santa Monica Airport. The play is strikingly relevant in our times and is considered to be on of the greatest plays of the 20th century. The play stars actor Rob Morrow as the tragic character Willy Loman.

To purchase tickets go to RuskinGroupTheatre.org or call 310-397-3244. 'Death of a Salesman' plays Friday, Saturday at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. It run till August 4th.

If art is what you crave this weekend then Diverted Destruction: Found Objects Rediscovered as Art is a must see.

The 11th annual Diverted Destruction exhibition is at the La Brea Gallery through August 20th. This is a provocative and ultimately profound concept. Gallery owner Liz Gordon has shown this type of exhibit yearly. She says it's one that is pivotal both in terms of the art itself and as an aesthetic for the L.A. art community.

Liz was an antique art dealer and throughout her 40 year career she had to decide on the value of millions of pieces that have come across her path. She always had a section in the store labeled the 'Artist Boxes' and these items were always sold at a fraction of their price in order to encourage artists to use them.

This time around the show has only female artists. Her reason? "We continue to live in a 'man's world' and look what they are doing and have done." she exclaims. "It's time we give women the platform and maybe, just maybe, the approach would be humanity first," she states.

This will be one very interesting art show. For more information go to DiversionsLA.com

Whatever you choose to do this weekend, make it a fun won.


Audio Interview: Jason Alexander - George Costanza in the television series Seinfeld and the cast of "The Joy Wheel" at Ruskin Group Theatre

Life is changing for Frank and Stella. On the day of Frank's retirement party, this once loving and simple couple find themselves pulled in different directions as the winds of change blow through Joy, Illinois. The world is not what it was. Joy is not what it was. Stella is shaken, but inspired, by her best friend becoming a liberated, sexualized, independent woman, while Frank decides to emulate his doomsday prepper friend by building an underground bunker that once was the family swimming pool. It's as if all of them are riding the Joy Wheel, hanging on to someone else so they can stay their ground.* Enjoy this interview with 1989 Tony Award winner for Best Lead Actor in a Musical - Jason Alexander and the cast of “The Joy Wheel” at Ruskin Group Theatre, running until Mar 24th. You can listen to this interview while commuting, while waiting in line at the grocery store or at an audition, backstage and even front of the stage.

JOAN OF ART: Coming Up a Weekend of Laughs, Sweets and Art

I love to laugh but at the same time I love when I see something that not only makes me laugh but also makes me think. The Joy Wheel directed by Jason Alexander (yep that one) and written by Ian McRae definitely does both.

Life is changing for Frank and Stella (the wonderful Dann Florek and Gina Hecht) and on the day of Frank's retirement party, this once loving and simple couple find themselves pulled in different directions as the winds of change blow through their town of Joy, Illinois. The world is not what it was. Stella is shaken but inspired by her best friend, Marge (the hysterically funny Lee Garlington) becoming a liberated, sexualized independent woman, while Frank decides to emulate his doomsday pepper carrying friend, Stew (the brilliant Maury Sterling) by building an underground bunker that once was the family swimming pool.

The play starts out as extremely funny but soon becomes dark and menacing making a very powerful 'must see.' theatre event. 'The Joy Wheel' opened on Friday February 15th and runs Thursdays-Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays 2pm through March 24, 2019. The Ruskin Group Theatre is located at 3000 Airport Avenue in Santa Monica. Tickets are $30-$35 and can be purchased in advance by calling 310-397-3244 or online at RuskinGroupTheatre.com.

Now there's also another kind of comedy taking place - and that's 'stand up comedy at the iconic Comedy Store in Hollywood.

This Friday The ShinDig Show, will be performing including (see above) Jeff Ross, Neal Brennan, Jodi Miller, Argus Hamilton, Yakov Smirnoff, Justin Martindale, Owen Smith, Pauly Shore and Esther Povitsky. They write on their event page "Join the Party with Jimmy Shin and the top comedians in the country! The ShinDig Show is one of The Comedy Store's best shows and we've cherry picked some of the funniest comedians around for this one. Don't miss this Ultimate Comedy Party with the biggest headliners and rising talent in the same room Dave Chappelle shot his last Netflix Special! Plus the biggest star Pop-ins...Last show Bill Burr and Judd Apatow popped in for a set..." The show starts at 7:30pm and runs till 9:45pm.

The show is at the Main Room and doors open at 7:00. There's a two drink minimum per person. The Comedy Store is located at 8433 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles. To purchase tickets go to ComedyStore.com.

Now after all these laughs, I think something sweet as well as artistic would be just the thing. The Chocolate and Art Show is where I'll be this weekend. It takes place this Friday, February 22nd and Saturday, February 23rd.

This event is a celebrated gathering to showcase the talents of local artists, vendors and musicians complimented by artisan chocolatiers. With regard to art's range of expression and subject matter everyone over the age of 21 is invited to join for a night or two of dancing, chocolate and cultural indulgence.

Chocolate and Art serves as a platform for emerging and established artists of many mediums to get to know their own art community, network, showcase their works and profit from their creativity. In support of their cause, the Chocolate and Art show benefits Artists for Trauma, a non-profit that aims to aid in recovery through artistic expression and human connection.

The show is located at the Vortex, 2341 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles. To purchase tickets go to ChocolateAndArtShow.com. The show starts at 7pm and goes on until 2am.

Whatever you choose to do this weekend, have a great one!
