THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO THOMAS JEFFERSON, CHARLES DICKENS AND COUNT LEO TOLSTOY: DISCORD

Written by Scott Carter
Directed by Matt August

OPENS FRIDAY, JANUARY 17
AT THE NOHO ARTS CENTER IN NORTH HOLLYWOOD!

Lock three great men in a room and God knows what will happen…

The multi-award-winning NoHo Arts Center Ensemble (NoHo ACE), Independent Shakespeare Co. and Efficiency Studios announced today an extraordinary array of talk-back guest speakers following select performances of the world premiere play, THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO THOMAS JEFFERSON, CHARLES DICKENS AND COUNT LEO TOLSTOY: DISCORD, written by Scott Carter (Executive Producer/Writer – “Real Time with Bill Maher”) and directed by Matt August. THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO THOMAS JEFFERSON, CHARLES DICKENS AND COUNT LEO TOLSTOY: DISCORD will begin previews on Saturday, January 11 at 8pm; will open on Friday, January 17 at 8pm and run for six weeks through Sunday, February 23, 2014 at the NoHo Arts Center, 11136 Magnolia Blvd. (at Lankershim) in North Hollywood.

Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens and Count Leo Tolstoy find themselves locked in a room together, and life, art, religion and politics get vigorously debated as if their souls depend on it. Because they do. This provocative and funny world premiere play is a fascinating insight into the spiritual lives of three of the greatest minds that ever lived. And, if these great men get second thoughts about their lives, what hope have the rest of us?

A World Premiere Play! Jan-Feb 2014 at the NoHo Arts Center!

The NoHo Card Is Your Ticket To NoHo

ADGautographMGadj

Having just been elected President of the Art Directors Guild this past February, for a three-year term, Production Designer Mimi Gramatky knows a thing or two about progress. Her ascent to the top of the 2,000-member organization is in sharp contrast to what was expected of a woman with her talents back when she first began her career. “I remember going to the career planning office at Berkeley with my degree in environmental design, and they said, ‘Great, you can be a teacher or a secretary.’ In those days, even with a degree from Berkeley, that’s what women were expected to do.”

Menopausia El Musical- Theatre Review by Brandon Scott
NohoArtsDistrict.com
HOLLYWOOD, CA . (6 de noviembre de, 2013) - Última Semana para disfrutar la obra Menopausia El Musical®, en el histórico Teatro Ricardo Montalbán.

Esta producción de “Menopausia El Musical “ es espectacular! Le recomiendo a toda la comunidad de habla Hispana que no se la pierdan y apoyen este show.
Con mucha suerte alcance a ver este musical el fin de semana pasado, y doy gracias por haber podido asistir. “Menopausia El Musical “ es un ejemplo estelar de la excelente cualidad de producción que demuestra el gran talento latino que tenemos en el teatro, en Los Angeles. El elenco es espectacular. Las 4 actrices trabajan juntas de una forma formidable y cada una de ellas es un gran talento, como actrices y cantantes.
Después de haber visto muchas producciones en Broadway, fue un deleite ver que esta producción en Español tiene todo lo que una producción musical debería de tener. Con música que incluye temas de los 60´s, 70´s y 80´s, “Menopausia El Musical “ narra la historia de cuatro mujeres que casualmente se encuentran en un centro comercial y descubren que tienen muchas cosas en común al estar pasando por el período de "cambio de vida". Diana Burbano, Marabina Jaimes, Paloma Morales y Graciela Valderrama hacen un excelente trabajo desempeñando sus personajes . A testimonio de su gran talento como actrices, cada uno de los personajes es chistoso y ágil. Son impresionantes cantantes.
Ingeniosamente dirigida por Seth Greenleaf y con coreografía de Daria Lynne Melendez; las cuatro actrices comandan el escenario bailando y cantando a lo largo de la obra.

Pienso que todas las mujeres no so lo disfrutaran del entretenimiento pero podrán relacionar sus propias vidas con el tema de la obra. En cuanto a nosotros los hombres, bueno yo, me divertí muchísimo y aprendí un poco mas sobre que es lo que les pasa a las mujeres cuando les llega “el tiempo de su cambio”, lo cual me va ayudar a entender y tener mas compasión. Así que les súper recomiendo a todos que son esposos o que serán futuros esposos que acompañen a sus mujeres y se diviertan con “Menopausia El Musical “.

Esta es la ultima semana así que obtengan sus boletos ahora.
Están disponibles por $25 en la taquilla Montalbán, o llamando al 323-870-3043.

Resurrection of Hollywood Hero Sal Mineo
An Interview with Actor Val Lauren of the biopic Sal

You’ve probably heard the name James Dean once or twice. He’s the iconic 1950’s Oscar-nominated actor, best known for his captivating performance in Rebel Without A Cause, who tragically met his death in a car accident on September 30, 1955. And even with an unusually brief career, having made only three films in as little over a year before his death, James Dean is still considered legendary due to his angst-ridden, brooding on-screen persona in Rebel Without A Cause. But one Rebel alumni whom your knowledge of is almost certainly limited, even though his career spanned three decades, earning him great success in film, theatre and music, is the twice Oscar-nominated Sal Mineo.

Spotlight - Crime in the Arts District

Written by

A Profile on LAPD Senior Lead Officer John Catalano

Since the advent of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), which brought the subway to L.A. County in 2000, a change has been on the rise in the NoHo Arts District. On its way to being a transit community, in large part due to the subway bringing in 34,000 people daily, the Arts District is steadily growing with more restaurants, theaters, apartments, dance and recording studios, and even a farmer’s market peppering an area that used to be plagued with gangs and graffiti. But while the ushering in of a well-received arts community has upgraded the popularity and property values of the community, the upgrade has fallen short regarding some of the moral values people have in and around the growing neighborhood.

It seems like the wait for OutFest, now in its 31st year, gets longer and longer with every passing film festival, and this year was certainly no exception. For eleven days, I danced, mingled, laughed, and wept during some of the most tingling and enticing films in queer cinema history.
