“Richard the III Is Back With A Vengeance at Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre!”
“Little Mary Sunshine Is Like A Fresh Bowl Of Corn Flakes”
Imagine yourself back in 1910 during the days of the old melodramas where there was a ‘damsel in distress’ and it was the proud Mounties of the western woods that patrolled the forests of our nation to come ‘save the day!’ against those mischievous indians and evil villains. Well, the West Valley Playhouse in Canoga Park has a rousingly jolly production of “Little Mary Sunshine” that was originally produced off Broadway back in 1959.
In the 1980s, a decade before Americans first learned of Osama bin Laden, Middle East terror groups seized Westerners as hostages. The kidnapping of Terry Anderson, Terry Waite, and others received extensive media coverage, even as they remained in captivity for hundreds of days.
In “American Buffalo,” the 1975 David Mamet play now at the Geffen Playhouse, the three characters, all men, rarely speak a sentence that does not contain at least one obscenity. They call on swear words to convey anger, bravado, fear, frustration, hurt, joy, and physical pain.
