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?

Good Food Is A Federal Affair

The NoHo Arts Distict dot Com team loves when our restaurants do seasonal menus because we get new flavors that go with the seasons. So when The Federal Bar, our neighborhood’s retro-style gastro pub (and super fun nightclub), decides to unveil a series of unique dishes to ring in the fall and winter, we are there ready with our fork and knife…and cocktail. So North Hollywood, get ready to head over to The Federal for some yumminess.

Poultry fans will flock to the Sherry Chicken, a succulent breast placed atop a mound of shitake and crimini mushrooms, shallots, and a rich base of sherry cream sauce. There’s also the Chicken Meatballs appetizer, a starter consisting of fresh ground chicken, carrot, celery, onion garlic, Parmesan, and eggs served up in a zesty Tikka Masala sauce.

Patrons intent on getting a taste of Italy can nosh on the Smoked Gouda Ziti. The dish’s blend of pasta, tomato sauce, roasted cauliflower, tomato, kale (yes, it’s everywhere) and basil renders it the ideal vegetarian option. Aside from the Ziti, Federal Bar’s winter menu boasts a few other mouth-watering options for non-meat eaters like the Roasted Root Veggie Skewers and the Raw Brussels Sprouts Salad. Conversely, carnivores will be happy to know that one of the new items is a massive Pastrami Burger.

And let’s not forget about dessert. The Federal’s new Chocolate Grand Marnier Whoopie Pie and Skillet Rocky Road Cookie make the perfect conclusion to any meal.

As the restaurant’s name suggests, Federal Bar has no shortage of libations for their guests to indulge in—‘tis the season, after all. With such fine brews as the Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale and Deschutes Jubelale on tap, The Federal’s draught list is a force to be reckoned with. Don’t drink beer? That’s fine—head bartender Carl Manusco has several culinary cocktails to choose from, including a killer Bloody Mary that comes adorned with a fat strip of thick-cut bacon.

Now the NoHo Arts District dot com team is thrilled that The Federal Bar has a holiday catering menu.

Federal Bar does much more than just food and drink. Owned and operated by Knitting Factory Entertainment, the restaurant features live performances almost nightly. Funky jazz musician Randy Emata takes the stage every Tuesday evening. Wednesday is Hilarious Humpday, a live stand-up showcase put on by The Rebels of Comedy. Then there’s Snapback Thursdays, the Federal’s weekly dance celebration of old school hip-hop. Finally, KCRW’s Gary Calamar (also True Blood’s music supervisor) hosts his intermittent Sunday “Music, Mimosas and Bagels” music series champagne brunches, which has featured artists ranging from Sam Phillips to Cracker.

See you at The Federal!

Menopausia El Musical- Theatre Review by Brandon Scott
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.

“Pass the Mural Ordinance Now”

noho-mural.jpg - 424.44 KB

For over 10 years murals have been banned on private property across Los Angeles, compromising both jobs for artists and LA’s legacy as the mural capital of the world. But, after years of community meetings and countless visits to City Hall, the ban is expected to come to an end; two versions of the ordinance are being put forward to the city council, however, one allows murals on single-family homes if they are approved by community boards, the other prohibits them outright. A source close to the decisionmaking process says that some version will likely be passed. 

Concerns and/or questions about the NoHo Arts District? Here is your chance to meet the people that have the answers. The NoHo community is invited to Councilmember Paul Krekorian's Open House on Thursday, August 15 from 5pm to 7pm. Councilmember Krekorian's new office is at 5240 Lankershim Blvd, Ste 200 (next door from Chipotle restaurant). See you there!
