JUDY GARLAND AND MEMORIES





JUDY GARLAND WAS A GRAND GENIUS 
HER SINGING VOICE COULD BREAK HER HEART

It wasn't simply dancing along with her grand dancing and enormous skills in films with Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. Critic Penelope Houston was the best. 

Judy Garland had a high-strung vitality that was uniquely stimulating on the stage and the movies. She was born Frances Gumm, in 1922, in Grand Rapids and Minnesota. Garland was put under at MGM and the same thing happend. Durbin's contract was allowed by Louis B. Mayer. He was very angry by Mayer.  

Audiences also found that Garland Critics thrilled and charmed for the audiences around the World. Shirley Temple had her legendary status was assured. Louis B. Mayer decided to drop Deanna Durbin. Garland went on with "The Wizard of Oz" still legendary is the greatest! Right now people are still seeing on the Big Screens. Garland is still that "Star is Born!" She blossomed under Vincente Minnelli's direction. They later married. Sad that it fell to pieces later. 

Garland died of alcoholism and drug addiction. Tragic cases like Judy Garland's. So she went on with personal problems. If she didn't drink as much - her blazing-comet career could have been altered a lot. Yep - her shows were intense.

PLAYHOUSE 

THE CAST OF of "Stage Kiss' (From left: Michael Gen Sullivan*, Carrie Paff*, Allen Darby Taylor Iman Jones, Gabriel Marin*, Millie DeBenedet, and Mark And Mark Anderson Phillips*


PEOPLE DEMAND KISSES - 
IT'S VERY GOOD TO SMACK

I wonder who's kissing her now? I've noticed that she hangs onto old love. After all, it's a proper way to kiss on stage. Now people demand kisses onstage. 

There are great kisses with a wide mouth. The Kisses are very attractive to Boys and Girls that could kiss all day long. Ummmm- stage kisses inspire. Now a days, it's just fantastic. It is better now. However I love the fun. I also grew up in the stage in Chicago. The Drama - is great San Francisco - you may have to kiss them way over ten times. 

The best way to kiss. here are actual onstage kisses. I love - however, I'm very careful about nudity. I'll be back to see the show again. 

Just wondering. Everything that I've seen this week there is a lot of over sexed men that bring out the "Brain Heads." They call it Hustle, Hustle. What about knowledge with they are partners? To them on the stage is: "Boring Knowledge!" But, remember - they are knowledge boring to call it - Hustle, Hustle. Throw your IPAD. They say "Oh My Gosh" - over lover and over! 

People around are like to chase around - "Ass" around here. You might want to stay at home. They want to sing - thank God. History tickles me. I've been told that you and others may be closer to you. What does it taste like? 

Kiss me Darling - you seem like your eating. You seem like your eating me. I'm afraid that you might. Let's Hide - I hope we can? 

Some of the best is "Like Masterbation -- it can't be mean to me!" The Hell with the future. Just come - but I liked him - she said.  REALLY?

TRUTH




CATE BLANCHETT - ROBERT REDFORD - TOPHER GRACE - ELISABETH MOSS AND DENNIS QUAID 


THIS STORY IS SO WELL WRITTEN - I WON'T WANT TO TAKE IT AWAY. Blanchett knows all, but there is a "Secret in your eyes!" Someone brought some bells. I think it's a Hippie. 

There are other problems on "TRUTH". Lot of problems -- Especially "Bush" in 1973. Emily forged the way anyway. More problems - Soldiers some got fired. Not all Military is good for
 'S--T'. Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford seemed to come along with the best of films. Blanchett knew that she protected the Documents - CBS. She feels now that she gets money. LOTS! And she knows that Cate will be happy. Maybe yes - and maybe no. 

Blanchett and Robert Redford - we hear the / Truth - but there is a lot of fights along the way. Much too much. Blanchett - doesn't seem to Lie, but - will tell the TRUTH. 

Cate Blanchett (she wants protected documents). Somewhere someone lied. Why did they tell the Truth? Gil Schwartz (older). We shake "The Truth." It's creative and inspiring. There are parties to play and celebrate with there (friends with buddies and drinks). The bunch around the town is not exactly unsuspecting as more power comes along. 

This certainly keeps us all. Everyone keeps excitement.

Skin of Civility 

by Philip Kan Gotanda 

Directed by Michael Moran 

Featured by Rinabeth Apostol*, Keith Burkland* , Derek Fischer, Rosie Hallet, Lisa Hori-Garcia* , and Jason Kapoor* 

Skin of Civility used the first date (a new couple) from very different worlds that began with generations that negotiations of power, sex and death.

This was a FREE event. It was a treat to share , a wine and a friend at the San Francisco Playhouse. There will be other exciting treasures. 

One of the older men told the gent that he liked to F****. He liked to watch Ballgames and Bigger and Large as it kinda swings back and forth. He pulses as he let us see him get away from him - but he does like to drink everyday. 

He's been told that he gives a Good Blow B-Job - and he likes to includes many that may have corked his Ass. Why is he telling this story? He will "Kiss your Feet Together." I'm going to pull-up a chair he says!

Hoop for your Mother - she is supposed to live longer for you and him. There is another women is looking for more news. She has done this before. You know - a good time! The good looking older (Jack) tells his girl friend that she is 31. She seems to like the woman (Jack). 

Everyman get exciting for older Men. Hold my Breath. She will more than you can with the man. She wants to talk to the younger, charming women. She wants to find lots and lots of money. There is a lot of money for the older man. He sez - he wanted money for the charming lady. And he does get it advantages. His father pulled off his Balls. It's not a Game. He smells of wood and death. But then, he waits for the young person that waits until you may die. He said -  don't want to get Married to you. I changed my mind. "Why did you have the Balls? The guy sez?

 The stage "Loved it". Everyone in the cast found that they were memorable. Hope to see them all on the stage again. The good full production on the stage is marvelous!

DOGFIGHT - KICKS OVER THE MUSICAL IN THE BEST WAY

FASCINATING WITH A STRONG CAST



LEE HARTGRAVE TONIGHT

ForAllEvents - Lee Hartgrave reviews



Music and Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
Book by Peter Puchan

Based on the Warner Bros. Film and Screenplay by Bob Comfat 


The musical Dogfight - directed by the sturdy Bill English. The show will feature Jeffrey Brian Adams* Jordan Bridges, Caitlin Brooke, Nikita Burshteyn, Brandon Dahiquist*, Sally Dana", Kathryn Hart, Andrew Humann, Amy Lizardo", AeJay Mitchell, and Michael Gene Sullivan*. 

The terrific Sets are in San Francisco and on the way to Vietnam. "Dogfight" (men) are tender when they don't drink too much. Film stars River Phoenix and Lili Taylor are great and The musical is the winner of the 20ll Richard Rodgers Studio Production Award. Hip, Hip Hooray. 

What happens when trouble comes out? They are headed to Vietnam before they leave for the one last night. There is also timing for teasing and taunting from the boys. There is hope that they come back to get to see the girls again. They will.  

Eddie takes to try to stick with his buddies. However trusting - some do want the guys to come back. And They will!

However, there is an amazing and charming girl - "Rose" - Eddie is going to turn a lesson on the best power of compassion. He says that he is Ready now to take Eddie and his Girl for Dinner -- Eddie says Maybe yes -- maybe not! Especially for "Rose". Eddie and Rose may want to go to John's Grill - where the Steaks and Food are. It's good. Oh - don't forget the cocktails for your wedding night. When that happens. 

The Crooked Frame at the Golden Gate Bridge - is slanting. It looked like it came with a thousand years. Some of the men are going to Vietnam - and they will be there in five months and maybe some may not come back. However, the brave Soldier, is a hero. He may never mention dogs again though - he didn't want to S--t again. I think that they will come back to look at tits to touch. The drummers certainly are keeping everyone exciting - when the Boys come home.  

The background is creative and inspiring. There are parties to play and celebrate with buddies (he drinks). Eddie is cruel with his buddies, and not always completely trusted - but they do like to play with each other - drunk or not. Rose sez that Eddie takes on what he bargains for. O.K!

DOGFIGHT the musical, made on off-Broadway show. Now there is "One night to party and play - and to tease". The girl seems to know that the unsuspecting power comes along. The musical in San Francisco is a wonderful musical. The Marines are on the way to Vietnam. But they still will have time to tease and taunt.

THIS IS OUR YOUTH


Directed by Brian Katz 

With Sam Bertken, Katie Robbins, and David Raymond

This is this days of Youth that follow lost young souls. The 19 year-old "Warren" stole $15,000 - from his abusive father. He's not thrilled. His friend Dennis hides plenty money. He plans to hide and get a great drug deal. He hopes to score romance with shy Jessica.

The Boys dropped and sniffed stuff. Well, at least they were going to before - but it dropped it all over the floor. One of them have intense gorgeous eyes. The other Boy was sleeping on the bed. He's a tremendous handsome young man with good legs. 

This is a surprize. The pretty girl had sex with her - and the young man had to do it. She didn't want it right away - but she did take it. Her boyfriend said: While you know now! The young man is extremely good looking - but sour. He sits in an old fashioned phonograph. It's a total look of "Playboy Magazine." 

Oh by the way - he wears Black shoes's and White bottom Strings. Plus he wears big Sunshine Glasses. He however - he gets pissed about something that really goes wrong. 

One of the boys found a brief case. He discovered a bunch of serious money - He said take it to a huge amount of money. He found tons of good money - and they all want to get. Drug deals are fascinating - but can ruin your entire being caustic - and scores making major bullying, to the younger guy. 

One Guy said: "You don't have Talent" - insulting himself - and so am I!

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA 


This is different. This is Spiders on the stage and it is spooky. However the clever Furniture tells us what is going on. The gorgeous boxes look like they are fantastic and expensive. Plus the sound on the stage is gorgeous. And not to mention that everyone is dressed with Diamonds, Gold, and wonderful looking clothes. 

This new exciting Opera at the Orpheum Theatre -  is certainly the best and brightest - and the cast is wonderful. They love us on the stage and we love them. Oh, talk of darkness: Christine Daae' - Katie Travis - Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny - Storm Lineberger - Carlotta Guidicelli - Jacquelynne Fontaine and many, many talents.  And boy, is the cast a blast. The Clothes are sparkling. Overly sparkling - but they know.  I wish I could wear them. Just kidding. But that's all I ask? When can I enter the Palace? 

There are Grand SHOW POSTERS on the Outside. Look outside....you will also be driven to the wonderful staging INSIDE - plus the acting that I have seen in this world and on this stage. WOW! 

I would be the Dance Captain (Tary Sweeney) - but she knows what to do. 

The Phantom acts like he just might bring him to the high and mighty. Especially in the face of death. Oh - talk of darkness  - it's creepy and crawly. It scares me. And of course there is - (Christine Daae') -- don't leave us. 'PLEASE'! 

Even the Phantom has a bad side of his face - he still wants Christine. She has the style and elegance to all. The Phantom has broad dimension...if only he could them together. He is as audacious under his command. He may bring you more! I'm sure you will.

MAGIC MIKE - SHAKE-A - PLUS STRIPPING




THE CAST AT THE BEGINNING IS TERRIFIC. CHANNING TATUM IS THE BEST. HE PLAYS COMEDY AND DRAMA TEASE - PLUS EVERYONE LOVES HIM 

Yep - Magic Mike is very amusing - at the beginning. However  - Mike, is funny at most. You'll find out that "Magic Mike" - you'll see that this is a very strange sequence. About everything takes off your body. I'm sure that older men and women, might be shocked as the men let everyone love it, and then again - maybe they won't . Wow!

The film is extremely compelling. Channing Tatum shows that he has a hot body - and a smooth look at his face. And of course there is this: Stripping off the men and women bring scenes that are on the way toward drugs. Most of the show overwhelms. The movie seems to keep the men on top (exactly) as well as the women. Channing certainly will not give that up! Amazing AND Shocking!

STEVEN SODERBERGH - SEEMED TO BE HAPPY. MAYBE YES, AND MAYBE NO, TO OTHERS. 

THERE ARE A FEW WITTY REMARKS THAT GIVE US A FEW SMILES. MOST OF IT KNOCKS THE HELL OUT OF EVERYONE. EXCEPT THE WOMEN SHOWS JOE MANGANIELLO HOT TO DANCE

Morgan Dayley, Kathy Michelle Drexler
and Marta (Teresa Attridge) implore
implore Robert to settle down 











Hey, when you've got three sexy girlfriends, you are either married or it's your birthday. It seems to me that it's part of Sondheim's marvelous musical comedy. Today its in Manhattan - but a lot of music comes from Sondheim. The musical part really takes your heart along. 

His Friend Robert (Keith Pinto*) - knows Sondheim's best known songs - everyone loves groundbreaking musicals. He would like to meet someone that he can really hug - but he is now married, divorced, and sad at times. They wonder about the ups and downs of their relationships. It comes back! 

This is worth trying to be irresistible to the girls and the guys. It's so mouthwatering and so satisfying. We saw you all eating and drinking at every bowl. Tsk, Tsk! Everyone loves all the musical varieties. I didn't smell any supercharged smells - just a little drink keeps everyone control on the floor from time to time. I enjoyed it.  

This is not a Popcorn musical on the stage. However - it is certainly the most blockbusters jokes. They keep them going galore. And of course mayhem will reign. But, we have noticed that sexy sleepwear falls asleep. It's not a Noir thriller - but it's a little depressing along the way - the web of intrique is getting more thrilling. Oh, by the way: Don't forget the terrific Bobbie (song) - we get a lot of that. Love it! 

FAME AND LOVE - All of that is now at the San Francisco Playhouse. It's sort of a Double Hitchcock. The women don't Vanish, they just get into the magical songs. 

I THINK I'M GONNA LIKE IT HERE - WE ALL WILL

SPY - BRILLIANT AND BIZZARE - MELISSA McCARTHY IS PARTICULARLY AMAZING!




Melissa McCarthy 








SPY;- THERE ARE MEMORABLE QUOTES




SMALL RATINGS ARE LOTS OF FUN



Well I had a couple beers. Hey I was a little tired - however the move is unrealistic - but lots of fun . It's for the Grown-ups. Jason Statham - and some people were wearing a new dress. 

Well, she whistled in a new dress. And hey -- she took off flying in a few seconds on the way to Italy. I liked it! And (Jason Statham loved it)! It's a wonderful twist everywhere. 

This is a really fun movie. Especially with Melissa McCarthy. I and the rest of the audience brought out a grand erotic day. There are nasty names like (S- -t). In that case --
 the kids should stay home. 

Miranda Hart (Actress) is really very good. She knows how to bring up energy. It is what it is - on the Big and gorgeous Screen. Just keep the kids at home - if they are very young. Sure it's fun  - but the grown ups are where they should be looking at that screen. 

SPY 2015 is a wonderment to the world. It's really funny and exciting. McCarthy and Jude Law is top notch. One of the best of the Year! 

There is some frontal anatomy. Pass the Goodies. It's for fun this year.

ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL ...A FILM FOR THE AGES









ME AND EARL - AND THE DYING GIRL



AT FIRST IT WAS EXTREME FOR ADULTS WHEN I LOOKED AT THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. THE ADULTS ARE REALLY TERRIFIC - AND THE SHOW TURNS OUT TO BE A BLAST FOR YOUNG TEENS

The adults seem to act just as nutty as their kids are. Especially their Father really pushes for emotion and sensitivity. Well - they got it. And they got it in a hurry. Everything in this movie goes on fast. Yep - it's pretty much authentic. 

The Dying Girl (Olivia Cooke) helps Rachel. It's kinda odd as Earl and Greg - (friends) brought out a bunch of emotions. It's not clear that Rachel and Greg. It seems to be happy go-lucky at the ending. AS Greg and Rachel get married. Did she live? I don't know for sure. 

Typical Teens are forced to see the world in the eyes of these healthy young boys. The adults act very strange. The family and the dogs have to take care of the boy (Greg) comes really emotional. Typical.

This real life story is tough to be a teenager - and the parents are not exactly light-hearted. A Great movie story however, is  more important that everyone brought happiness at the end.

INSIDE OUT - BETTER THAN EVER









GREAT - IT'S VIBRANT (Like Pixar's) "UP". It couldn't be better direction from Pete Doctor and co. The animation is fantastic story telling. 

This is marvelous. The audience just smiles all during the film. I'm sure that the children and adults witnessed something very special. The movie with the colors is absolutely the most exciting movie I've seen in years. At the screening - the audience was begging that it might be too complex for some kids - but many were thrilled. Fly me to the Moon. 

The Older people at the movie laughed out loud all through the show. Some of the movie is a little creepy - but then again it excites the songs and animation. They love you also. 

The colors on "Inside Out" is wildly wonderfully incredible incredible - and you will fall over, with the gorgeous humorous jokes. Yet - the story is well paced. The audience is certainly smiling. Kids get it - they know what they can do. 

There are emotional lighter moments. There is the bright side and the creepy side also. But - the audience is triumphant. It excites the songs and animation. I love you also! 

The movies around the world is where you will find tension that brings out loads of emotions. Everything fascinates me. The picture on the screen is unique and creative. I'm sure that 'Inside Out' brings out the best film this year.

Some LGBT people remain in the closet on the screen. There is love, and there is also re-entering in the closet. One of them or more sometimes, hide their sexuality. At the Castro the annual attendance of 60,000 to 80,000 is very exciting. The film exhibition at the arts Event was amazed by the audience this Sunday of the month for the Festival at the Castro.

The Fest is held every year in late June according to the Schedule. In the San Francisco area, Theatre's are in SF. 

There have been many Frameline Film Festivals. For this quality is held every year as Awards for Best Feature, Best Documentary and Best Short. I've heard that Gay Cinema's of the United States are everywhere.

LOVE AND MERCY - DARK AND LIGHT -BUT STILL THE BEST THIS YEAR






JOHN CUSACK - & ELIZABETH




LOVE AND MERCY 


WHO NO'S? SUNSHINE SEEMS TO BE RIGHT -  NOW IN A DARK PLACE - AND MUSIC IS FALLING APART

The Best emotional film is this year - plus all the Jazz - but Brian may have ruined "Rock & Roll". But I'm with it - as Brian Wilson is Amazing. And no wonder...Elizabeth Banks takes care of Wilson. He is a fantastic person -- and he should win an Oscar. 

Wilson is Heart wrenching. The story is amazing - and every day falls astonishing. Of course Brian is falling apart. His tyrannical father was mean. The Monsters around Brian is surrounded by imaginary darkness. There is this: Wilson's Dad
also has mental problems and was brutal. 

Elizabeth Banks did not say much. Many of the scenes are quite frightening. However - because of the excellent pop tunes, there is the mentality - for Wilson. 


Elisabeth Banks - who plays Cusacks love interest


Brian may have ruined everything. But, then maybe they wanted to get away from all of each. It's what it is on the screen. It's ironic that everything fell to pieces - but in the end Wilson still brings out wonderful music. I've heard it many times, and there is still Pop Tunes instead of Demon's. At the end of the screening -  Brian Wilson gives us the best movie at the end. It is Wilson who we got to see us on the Big Screen. His creative genius is still priceless.

GREY GARDENS - THE MUSICAL




GREY GARDENS IS ABOUT AN EXPLORATION OF AN AMERICAN DREAM 



Little Edie and Edith
In 1975, filmmakers drug out their swell cameras at their Grand estate for the well known Edith Bouvier Beale (Jackie Kennedy's Aunt) plus her daughter Little Edie, of course was younger. The older women is surrounded and ostracized from their town. As the time goes by - so does the money go by. They used it all up with the dozens of the cats and the raccoons. Well - they have to eat don't they? 

During 1971 and 1972 - the living conditions left the house - that now has to stumble across numerous cats and raccoons. The house is a disaster. Now they are deprived of running water and very little food. And... they won't want to eat the garbage and decay. But they have no course....the Beale Women faced bad days. The house is NOW a Train Wreck: Edith and Edie become very rigid individualists. Each Lady is very nasty to each other. They don't seem to care. Yep - at one time the Mansion was exoctic.

They did have great days at one time. They sang - they had someone play the piano -- and each one of them were Jealous. Oddly enough - the Girls could have done much for the Palace - but they failed for them. 

Lee Radziwill gave some necessary funds. She tried to repair the torn apart home now. Oh by the way....the home was called Grey Gardens due to the color of the dunes, and sea mist. 

Grey Gardens - the musical (San Francisco premiere of the award-winning musical) was at one time, a fantastic home that kept magical music filled with charm. As the singing at the huge home - is now a complete wreck - will they stabilize and repair a house that doesn't meet village codes?

It's a shame! They were too stern. They argued with each other day and night. Maybe that's the reason that they keep the cement garden walls that fall apart. This is the best Musical I have seen and heard in the world.

THE CAST: David Brown, Nathan Brown, Nandi Drayton Mary Gibboney, Gabrielle Jarvie, Julian Lustenader, AeJay Mitchell, Heather Orth, CC Sheldon, and Dave Sikula*

CREATIVE STAFF: William Campbell - lights, Cat Howser - stage Manager, Brooke Jennings* - costumes, Stewart Lyle* - scenic design, Kim Saunders" - choreography.

TROUBLE COMETH - SAN FRANCISCO PLAYHOUSE - STAGE WORLD PREMIERE










SAN FRANCISCO PLAYHOUSE
TO STAGE WORLD PREMIERE
OF TROUBLE COMETH

This play is Fact, Fiction and a comic thriller about two executives that struggle during an impossible narcissism. It's certainly selfies that admire themselves. Who else could possibly bring top-notch actors to this re-imagining. 

The Downtown show has attracted this New Show in near Union Square. There is every thing there. Everything is the most exciting evening on this stage. The Actors, Directors, Writers, designers and inspiring environment. 

The Men and Women at the office seem to pant as soon as they can throw their arms around themselves. Yes, it's cold, and you have to throw your arms around the guys -- when they get the chance. Yes - he pants - she likes it - and both of the men are married to others. However, that doesn't seem to bother them. They sometimes eat at the Table. Both are sneaking around. One guy says: "Hello Birdshit!" Someone else says: "Hello Nothing." But they all talk under the desks as they might leave the Hubby and the Sexy Girls. You'll see - you all will notice the hilarious glitches. He's funny, and she has fun also. But what do they do with their partners? 

One of the Girls in the office - and one guy gave her a gorgeous Ring (remember, he still is married). She took the Ring... he took it back. She wants the Ring Back. What a nasty guy. 

This is High Quality at the Playhouse. It's the best acting and directing talent I've seen yet. 

Near the end, are the most exciting moments and thrills. You will believe it. The exciting kisses almost fall off the Chair. Heck - I wanna see it again, and again. 

THE CAST: Kyle Cameron*, Marissa Keltie*, Patrick Russel*, Nandita Shenoy*, and Liz Sklar*

WOMAN IN GOLD 

This is a realistic British-American 
drama film

HELEN MIRREN 



The British-American drama film directed by Simon Curtis and written by the famed Alexi Kaye Campbell. The well-known stars are Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds Daniel Bruhl, Katie Holmen, Tatiana Maslany, Max Irons, Charles Dance, Elizabeth McGovern, and Johnathan Pryce. 

The movie is based a true story of late Marie Altmann. She was an elderly Jewish refugee living in Los Angeles. Altman got together with her young Lawyer (Randy Schoenberg) - fought the Government of Austria for at least a decade to reclaim Gustav Klimt's iconic painting of her aunt. The Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I. The Nazi's confiscated all of the portraits in Vienna just prior to World War II. Altman took her legal battle to the Supreme Court of the United States. It ended up in favor in the 'Republic of Austria v. Altmann (2004. 

There are many flashbacks throughout the film. Altmann recalls the arrival of Nazi forces in Vienna, Austria, and much suppression of the Jewish community. The Nazi's looted and pillaged against the Jewish families. They all tried to escape, before the country was completely torn apart. And - the reason the Jews wanted to flee from Germany. I don't wonder - I would do the same. However they didn't stay in their gorgeous homes they fled to Austria. Altmann moved the painting to the United States

Altmann and members of her family were lucky to flee to the United States. Many were successful in their escape. Altmann enlists the help of Randol Schoenberg, a young Lawyer with little experience. However, he was smart enough to make a claim for the art restitution board in Austria. 

And Altmann has the painting moved to the to the USA on displayed at an early New York gallery. It was moved to a permanent exhibit. 

The acting is Supreme. At times there were many tears coming on my eyes. There is gorgeous flashbacks of the paintings and the fabulous homes that you all had to leave from Germany. The pictures on the walls in Germany. This movie certainly brings out a true story and grand historical elements for Art, Identity, Justice and International Law. Everyone in the this chapter brought out the long-term effects - it's a joy to see for yourself. 

THIS IS THE REAL STORY: STARS...Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Bruhl - Katie Holmes - Tatiana Maslany - Max Irons - Charles Dance - Antje Traue - Elizabeth McGovern - Frances Fisher - Moritz Bleibtreu - Tom Schilling - Allan Corduner - Henry Goodman  and Nina Kunzendorf 

STRONG AND IRRESISTIBLE  

Maria Altman sought to regain a world famous painting of her Aunt that was plundered by the World War II. Maria managed to get some of the Gorgeous Arts off the wall. Oh by the way - don't get confused with Austria and Australia. The fight never ends. Some thematic elements are brief, but very strong language. 

PROFOUNDLY UNIQUE AND EXCITING
AND ENGAGING

WHERE'S CHARLEY? - IT'S A GRAND MUSICAL AT THE EUREKA THEATRE



CHARLEY'S AUNT HAS REVISED 
MANY TIMES  


THE COMEDIC CHESTNUTS STARTED FROM THE 1890'S. AND IT'S STILL STANDING

Jack Benny's 1941 film and many revisions are outrageous. Now we have many versions. But, I'm glad to have people like Ed Norton (star) along with several other showcases on the stage. 

I was overwhelmed at the 'Eureka'. The entire cast gave everyone many yeoman years. This year is the best that I've ever seen - especially when Charlie goes from Women's Dresses to men's clothes. This thrilling show excites all. There is a gorgeous Piano that overwhelms. Some of the guys popped with a deviled egg. The crowd bent over constantly. 

There are many people in the show -- and they include girls and boys: It goes - "My darling, My Darling - I love you so"- Jack and Kitty -  what a sensational voices. Hey why not? They are all addressing their hair, as the Gossips eyes pop out. 

Charley is so much fun as he masquerades as he pretends to be the aging Aunt.You can imagine how the whole audience is bent over as they hurdle along the way. The popular song "Once In Love With Amy" brings even more thrill to the stage. Love is Love! 

Departure's boys - and girls get a little depressed. After the girls leave the stage (wow) - the Boys take over the stage (more wow! Legs are up in the air as the Grand Ensemble twitter along the way.  

Charley's Aunt (in early days) play men and females. It's like "Kinky Boots, and La Cage Aux Folles). This show has been a great success on Broadway...and it's still running around the world.

A TRULY FASCINATING SHOW - TERRIFIC! 

Wonderful Stars: Keith Pinto . James Bock. Jennifer Mitchell . Abby Sammons . Scott Hayes . Stephanie Rhoads . John-Elliott Kirk . Roy Eikleberry . Katherine Leyva . Maria Mikheyenko . Noelani Neal. Zac Schuman . Stephen Vaught . Tim Wagner
