A famous artist seeking to feel like he has actually accomplished anything. Young love, unrequited.

A storyteller broken into pieces. If you had the chance to peer inside the mind of an artist on the brink of disaster… would you do it?

Theatre Reviews and Interviews

Ritual Music to Cure a Lover

Shahin Sayadi is a gifted storyteller. “Ritual Music to Cure a Lover” is a story about love and pain and our innate human yearning to move away from the lives of our forefathers and to make something uniquely our own.

“Death of A Salesman”

“Death of A Salesman" - This production in the intimate Sherry Theater is as vivid as the words on the paper. The actors play well with the tension of the characters. They create and hold the serious angst of the story, which is tricky to sustain. They tackle the levels of torment and intense dissatisfaction they all have and give room for the words and the rhythm of the prose. 

The Book of Will

"The Book of Will" review - The actors perform magical feats of realism and transport us all to the streets and the taverns and the homes and the globe itself. They speak in Shakespeare's language and in modern language too, and the melding of the two feels natural and absolutely perfect for the story and the vivid beautifully drawn characters. 

“Minnesota Moon”

“Minnesota Moon” review. What if someone wrote a play about a memory of a moment in their lives they wish they could not only live again but stay in forever?

A New Brain

The entire play is set to music, opera like, and within minutes this seems like the most natural way in the world to tell this funny, dramatic and oddly charming story. The songs are wonderful, vivid, brutally honest, highly creative and strangely familiar. It has the air of a Charlie Kaufman film. Surreal but instantly relatable. 


RENT review: They took on something truly daunting and absolutely knocked it out of the park. Every song was perfection, every character fully realized. I laughed, I rocked out, I cried, a felt as joyful as could be and by the end of the production I was on my feet along with the rest of the audience.

Shankar Plays Shankar

A NoHo Arts music review of “Shankar Plays Shankar” featuring Anoushka Shankar on Sitar and conducted by Jaime Martin at the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO).

Night Hymns’ “Blue Bottle”

Vancouver-based indie rock musician Night Hymns’ new single “Blue Bottle” was inspired by singer-songwriter Wei’s encounter with a cafe in San Fransisco of the same name.  And I can’t think of a better reason to write a song!  

David A’s “Lit” 

David A’s “Lit” - David A holds nothing back with these striped-down musical poems. He laments and he praises as the guitars riff and the melody sores and dips. It’s an album of emotive phrasing and solid, forward-moving songs. Each one picking up where the last left off. 

Rocky Roberts & Friends’ “Piece of Time”

What a sweet and tender bluesy Americana sound for the oncoming summer months. Perfect for swinging in a hammock after a few tequilas. Rocky Robert & Friends EP “Piece of Time” is a tranquil beauty. 

Caroline Brennan’s “The Journey”

Caroline Brennan’s “The Journey” - She has a clear sweet voice, something of her Irish background perhaps? Perfect for the Americana, folksy country music she makes. The songs are catchy, beautifully written, poignant and commercial without being over done. 

Black Dog String Quartet’s “A Thousand Times Brighter”

A NoHo Arts music review of Black Dog String Quartet’s “A Thousand Times Brighter” album release.
