A WRINKLE IN TIME is now playing in theaters everywhere #WrinkleInTime

Now playing in a theater near you, A Wrinkle in Time is family fun for everyone. Nothing too scary for even the littlest theater-goers, an easy to follow plot, and a theme everyone can identify with. Meg misses her dad when he disappears one day, and will do anything to get him back. She has had a hard time fitting in since he left, and only finding him will make her feel like “everything is right with the universe” again. On the search for her father, she finds a new friend, a better relationship with the little brother she already adores, and a new understanding of herself.

Not much like the book, but a cute movie for the family, and visually beautiful. The kids in the movie were brilliant actors, and the three women “rescuers” and lights of the universe were diverse and interesting.

Off-Broadway’s PUFFS is going HOLLYWOOD


On Saturday, February 3rd and Sunday, February 4th, 2018PUFFS (or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a CertainSchool of Magic and Magic) will shoot PUFFSLive Off-Broadway for worldwide audiences.

The event will define the euphoria of achieving the best of two worlds – on one stage.

Co-Directed by the hit show’s director, Kristin McCarthy Parker and cinematographer Kathryn Jones, the five-camera, two-day shoot will capture the hilarious, inexhaustibly accomplished and acclaimed cast; as they dazzlingly and dizzyingly portray 53 certifiably off-balance and uproariously entertaining characters.

Both the hit Off-Broadway show and the anticipated Live Capture are produced by Tilted Windmill Theatricals’ John Arthur Pinckard & David Carpenter.  The groundbreaking and critically celebrated script is by Matt Cox.

The Live Capture project took shape at the insistence of the burgeoning multitude of fans continually asking when the show would be playing in their city.

When the cameras roll, PUFFS will make history as the first Off-Broadway show to offer its fans the rare opportunity of participating in the films’ creation by joining in a Kickstarter Campaign being made available for a limited amount of time.

There are eleven of them.

These are comedic geniuses who have been acclaimed by the New York Press Corps and sold-out audiences alike at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street) where they opened on Saturday, July 8th.

On stage, they start out running, somewhere around 80 mph, kidnap the audience and continue the journey gaining momentum until they blow the roof of the theatre.

When producers, David Carpenter and John Arthur Pinckard, established Tilted Windmills Theatricals, they did so to re-energize and re-vitalize both the creative and financial possibilities of the American Theatre.

Destination LA: McCabe’s Guitar Shop

Santa Monica California has sun, surf, and music…

One of this L.A.’s treasures is McCabe’s Guitar Shop where you can expect to find more than just stringed musical instruments and lessons on how to use them. People come to hear from those that have mastered their craft. Concerts at McCabe’s are an intimate small stage affair that feels like what it is, getting up close and personal with an artist. Whether you are a fan of the performer(s) or just looking for a destination to hear live music, this is the place to keep an eye on with a history of greats going back five decades.
For my experience I was lucky enough to catch an all time personal favorite, Langhorne Slim, in a pared down solo performance in the back room. Telling stories and singing from a single chair, which at times could barely contain his energy and need to move, Langhorne entranced fans and first timers alike with a mix of folk, rock, and country twang. How do I know? I’m a fan from back before his first album Electric Love Letter came out in 2004. The couple next to me had been tracking him for a few years, since they first encountered him as an opening act. The group behind me were new to the experience of seeing Langhorne Slim on stage just like my date, and by the end they were total converts.

The Other F Word Series is Back With Season 2!

The Other F Word

Last year I shared with you about The Other F Word, an edgy comedy about a group of friends who find that the angst of raising kids may be nothing compared to the angst of starting over after they are grown.  The show, written and producer by Caytha Jentis, was met with so many rave reviews I’m thrilled they’ve just released Season 2! My only possible complaint is that it ended too soon but I loved being about to binge watch for free through Amazon streaming.

The Other F Word proves that we don’t have to be afraid of getting older – there’s nothing scary about “forty.” And these four friends certainly bring a fun, comedic perspective to the issues surrounding midlife for women. You’ll love the cast including Judy Gold, Steve Guttenberg, Gilbert Gottfried, Michael Boatman, Alysia Reiner and Nancy Giles. Plus, former Comedy Central EVP and comedian Judy Gold joins Jentis as an Executive Producer. The chemistry between these characters is brilliantly portrayed and highlights the importance of friendship at every age. With such an amazing group there’s no doubt Jentis has another hit season on her hands.

Coastal Country Jam in Huntington Beach

Coastal Country Jam LogoAs if the beaches of Southern California aren’t enough on their own, events like the Coastal Country Jam, held this year on September 23-24, should lure you from near and far. With a great line-up that included such bands as Lady Antebellum, Brett Young, Eli Young Band, and Old Dominion, this two day festival is a must for country music fans or just music lovers. And yes, in case you were wondering, there were plenty of cowboy boots in the sand at Huntington Beach.

Coastal Country Jam in Huntington Beach CaliforniaThe Coastal Country Jam was a small village of interesting shops, food vendors, music stages, and a giant ferris wheel over looking the ocean along Huntington Beach California. Days in the sun, colorful sunsets, and crescent moons were an added appeal to the quality music that blasted from the main stage. This concert brought the best parts of laid back beach life to entertainment. Loads of beach chairs, giant beanbag chairs for two, and hammocks were set out for comfortable listening. A plus being that all seats had to be low so even from the ground the views were great.
