I didn’t accept any plays to review for you on the weekend
I haven’t been feeling up to par recently, and have been seeing doctors for checkups, to get to the bottom of the problems. I do have a couple of theater dates booked in the near future though to tell you about….
Mark Your Calendars
The Women – A Classic Comedy
Directed by Arden Teresa Lewis, assisted by Lee Meriwether, and written in 1936 by Clare Boothe Luce. This play, boasting 17 female actors, looks at all sides of love and marriage … generations ago. Focusing on the troubled marriage of a wealthy couple in Manhattan, after a mistress is discovered … the play looks at sex, gossip, infidelity, love, and marriage, from all sides. My press release humorously states: “Come spend an evening with The Real Housewives of 1936.” An excellent cast of women have been cast to play these saucy and opinionated ladies. I expect to be highly entertained! Why not book seats with your “gal pals,” or plan a ladies night out with your various female club members? See you there? Opening May 10 at Theatre West (near Studio City). For early reservations call (323) 851-7977 or online theatrewest.org.
Fool for Love
Written by Sam Shepard and directed by Gloria Gifford, this play about romantic obsession won The Obie Award in 1984. The story centers around Eddie and May … He, a cowboy with wanderlust, and She, a motel cook in the Mohave Desert. Driven by an obsessive sporadic relationship, their “off and on” romance is passionately problematic. There is a secret behind their issues … and a recurring old man that appears onstage, who knows the answers that explain their mysterious connection. Sounds compelling. Opening May 18 at T.U. Studios in North Hollywood. For early reservations call (310) 366-5505 or online at tix.com.
A Fond Farewell to the L.A. Lakers
After a valiant season-long struggle, and countless team injuries on key players … they finally lost the fight on Sunday afternoon in the NBA playoffs. I’ve been front and center in view of my TV all season, and enjoyed every excitingly suspenseful moment! Better luck to next year fellas … your spirit and hard work is appreciated! Thanks for the memories….
Back next week with more “Pat Chat!”
