"The Anniversary Issue" survives another week, returns Oct. 22 with new episode!
It was almost one-thirty in the morning Sunday when we heard host Victor Isaac enthusiastically announce the words we were praying to hear.... "Coming back next week... THE ANNIVERSARY ISSUE!!!" We were tired. We were sore. Our adrenal glands had been running on tilt all day. My mind had been spinning for a solid week. But in th...

Town Hall: Actor's Equity Association & our 99-Seat Theatres

Town Hall: Actor's Equity Association & our 99-Seat Theatres
[Update: Got a better cover photo for the article, courtesy of Brian T. Finney.]Last night, I dragged myself down to the L.A. Theatre Center downtown for the Town Hall on AEA & Our 99-Seat Theatres, sponsored by L.A. Stage Alliance. Yeah, I said dragged. I'm not going to lie - I'm tired of this. I've been tired of this. I can't i...

Building a better community.

Building a better community.
​Today, representing the Theatrical Producers League of Los Angeles, I took a meeting with my friends at the LA Stage Alliance and LA Theatre Network. The topic?

Conversing Quarterly

HFF 16 Wrap-Up

HFF 16 Wrap-Up
Wow, it's been a week since the seventh annual Hollywood Fringe Festival closed. I've barely had time to catch my breath. This year's festival was unusual for me, as I wasn't able to be around for much of it. Whether it was a trip out of town, or events outside the purview of the festival that I had to attend, I wasn't able to run up and down Theat...

6 Ways to Be An Awesome Fringe Patron

6 Ways to Be An Awesome Fringe Patron
Last night, Theatre Unleashed previewed its 100th production, A Feast of Snacks, to a sold-out Fringe house at The Lounge on Santa Monica. It was a pretty awesome experience - high energy, lots of laughs, and smiles abound. We premiered a brand new mini-musical, The Escape Artist, as a part of the lineup, and it killed. This was the kind of night I...
