Monday Shout Outs

Happy Monday Everyone!

Four plays opened on valley stages this weekend while I was out of town. Fortunately, Charlene Faris was there to enjoy “Miss Gulch Returns” and “The Man of La Mancha.” She has reviews of both shows posted.

“The Little Dog Laughed” opened at Desert Rose Playhouse, too. Special Monday shout outs to our friend Rick Logsdon. He was in the opening night audience at DRP and told me he loved it, but he refused to disclose details about the end of the play for fear of spoiling it. So we will all have to check it out.


Coming Up:

I will be heading to some of these shows this weekend, along with some new ones. The ABBA show from the Gay Men’s Chorus is this weekend and I have my tickets.

Check out our preview of “Fiddler on the Roof,” which is coming to us from College of the Desert April 30 through May 3. We talked to the director about this marvelous event for Coachella Valley Talk Radio . Also from COD; Improv time is coming newxt weekend!  And it is not too early to get your tickets for a special fund raising concert for “Swim to Win.” The details are at CoachellaValleyFun.com.

Miss Gulch Returns and the Desert  Laughs

Charlie Creasy (musical director), Charlene Faris, and Jerome Elliott (Miss Gulch)  "Miss Gulch Returns," presented by the Desert Ensemble Theatre (DETC), opened to a nearly full house on Friday night at the historic Palm Springs Woman's Club's Pearl McManus Theatre then to a crowd of about thirty people on Saturday night when this writer attended. Jerome Elliott is the one and only "star" in this one man (one woman?) monologue that is a very loose parody on the 1939 MGM "Wizard of Oz" movie.  If minor characters within a movie could succeed, then definitely "Miss Almira Gulch" would!!!  

That may be because "Almira" is just a reminder to us all about one's own

Man of La Mancha Shines at PCT

Bonnie Stroock with Mark Almy (Miguel de Cervantes/Don Quixote/Alonso "Man of La Mancha," a musical written by Dale Wasserman, opened to a well-filled house on Friday evening at the Palm Canyon Theatre on North Palm Canyon Drive.  For enthusiasts of a "play within a play," this one certainly fits the bill. (My guest, Bonnie Stroock, explained the play she used to teach, prior to the start as this writer had not seen the stage production.) 
This particular musical came from the non-musical 1959 teleplay, "I, Don Quixote."  It is an adaptation of the 1972 film and is from the original 1965 Broadway play.  With this vast history, it is not
