Great things can happen when given the space and encouragement to create. The Whitefire Theatre has given artists this platform since 2012 with their annual SOLOFEST - a festival of one-person shows, or solo theatre, that is a celebration of the solo journey.
Congratulations! Producer Edmund Gaynes to receive Lifetime Achievement Award at the Valley Theatre Awards, June 5, 2017.
We have all heard that the San Fernando Valley is a cultural wasteland. Well maybe they should go to the West Valley and see a theatre production at Los Angeles Pierce College. Nohoartsdistrict.com's theatre reviewers continue to be thrilled with the college's productions. It takes a team of talented professionals to produce good theatre. Today, we are interviewing Michael Sande, Pierce College's Theatre Manager and the "glue" behind the scenes.
Theatre Unleashed launches its edgy and ambitious 2011 season with the acclaimed dramedy from Aaron Kozak, winner of top honors at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. 3 years ago, I met this new NoHo Theatre Company. Their members were filled with hope and dreams and great drive and determination. Although, their goals were ambitious, I had this gut feeling they would succeed!
The Birthday Boys is a dark comedy that entwines you into the story as only "intimate theatre" can do.. The Birthday Boys is well directed by Jacob Smith and has an extremely talented cast. The three Marines 'privates Chester Gullette (Gregory Crafts), Lance Tyler (Sean Fitzgerald) and Colin Carney (Jim Martyka) deserve a standing ovation after every performance.
This a play not to be missed. The play has humor, suspense and a non judgemental attitude towards our military and war. Set in 2006 Iraq, the play tracks three United States Marines who have been taken hostage, bound and blindfolded, as they do whatever's necessary to keep their sanity and stay alive.
