DISCOVER BEYOND FASCINATING!

THE TALES OF HOFFMANN 

DISCOVER BEYOND FASCINATING!

WALK'N BROADWAY 



TRY - LA - LA - LA. THERE IS A GORGEOUS WOMAN ON DREAM STREET on this "Heart of Mine." Oh - some of the Beauties now take place on a Greek Island. Sure, some of the fantastic extra multilayered theater is wonderful gorgeous musical ballet along with the fantastic musical singing. This is the most sumptuous colorful sly tricks that I've never ever seen, on this strong colorful cinema. 

This film is all about Love. Love drags along like it will never end. But, you know what? - it ruffles around everyone. Talk about Opera -- It's fabulous spectacle. I stayed because I am fascinated with the back drops and the magnificent looks on the screen. Plus the glamour orgy on the stage. Why do you think I stayed? 

The British film History knows how to make beautiful screening. It's the longest this long. Hoffman was inspired by one favorite film of all time. He jumped to making movies of his own. And they worked! 

Here is some British film history. Michael Powell (1905-1990) and Emeric Pressburger (1902-1902). The beautiful color film is the most beautiful color film that I have seen in my time. There is - "The Red Shoes, Black Narcissus, and A Matter of Life and Death. Here are the greats - TALES OF HOFFMANN is an anthology of fantastic romance. Here are: Moira Shearer, Robert Helpmann, and Ludmilla Tcherina. Every shot has been imagines as a visualization from great music - Martin Scorsese -and of course there was the major influence - "Raging Bull." 

The Grandest movie restoration was by and is Powell's wife and Oscar-winning editor Thelma Schoonmaker. It's a complete, crisp beautiful version (the longest) - that has ever been released.

"DANNY AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA" AT THE PHOENIX THEATRE






Kimberley Roberts and Paul Ulloa 





FLYNN SPIRIT PRODUCTIONS 

San Francisco 



Believe me - watch this Prize Fight - it's a fight that loves to kiss and then loves to beat people up. 

This is a rough and tumble rundown in a Bronx Bar. Danny is a mean young person that likes to knock the crap out of people. Danny brings out the most violence that I have ever seen on a stage. 

Danny meets up with Roberta. She's divorced - and like the two people - yell and scream at each other. I tell you - it knocked the S--t off each others seats. As far as Danny goes - he's got the best chest in the City. 

Roberta has a  troubled teenage son. Her son is being cared for now by her parents. And why. Well...to strike up over a beer. That's when he and Danny drink constantly. Sexual incidents doesn't know what is distrustful of men in general. "I hate that F****ing guy." He's is hardly very peaceful with anyone. Especially Danny's Deep Blue Sea. He's never content! 

Roberta while drunk along with Danny - yell's and screams back and forth at each other. She says - Danny is a beast! But, that doesn't stop them. This night they begin to melt as they seem to be very cozy for an evening. Thank God. Oh by the way - Roberta seems to hate all of her family. Have another Beer. She hates her father - who is a meat packer. Want to eat some? 

One of them or both, seem to want to cozy up - even though they still have some heavy duty screaming at each other. Surprising backgrounds are great. Colors and music on the walls are high Drama, but Danny - just passes by. He says: - "Let's get another F****ing Drink." It's not a sweet hospitality moment. Danny and Roberta just seem to uncross those legs. But oh what fun!  Wait till you see the bodies. Yummie! You had a right to shut up! I think that was Danny. 

HERE IS THE GRANDEST PRODUCTION TEAM THAT I'VE SEEN IN YEARS

NICK AND NORA - GREAT LIGHTING - SMOOTH MUSIC



42nd STREET MOON 

WALK'N BROADWAY 


NICK & NORA opened at a couple's bungalow at the famous Garden of the Allah Hotel. Nora loves being at shining Hollywood weddings. Tracy seems to be a  Southern California Girl that seems to be the quiet getaway one, Yep - she has struck big on the movies. 

Max Bernheim got arrested for the murder of a studio bookkeeper. Lorraine Bixby. Oh my...she is determined to not let Bixby get away from her. She's the wild one  -  and that's not going to let them take on a case. And it's hot in Hollywood. 

As everyone knows, Nick and Nora has already staged the production. It's all so confusing, and they rush back and forth and twitter their eyelids. Nora is not going to take over the whole set. However - Hollywood Hills constantly intrigue us more than the Hills. Yes - they do meet a special suspect Guy that wants to meet some baddies. 

Here are a few: "You're reasonable for someone like you." "Would you like to come over to Marie Valdez's?" "Oh - Mrs Conners - that effects on me. People get hurt! But you'll find another drink at another Hotel." It's a wonder that they can't stand-up.

 There is Dancing with silky Garments that glitter around. More Champagne? One person said - Listen Loud Mouth - you're to noisy! Another said: "A Movie Star? - I've always wanted to be a star - have another Drink! 

You will love this show. I love this show - and I also love the small Lounge where you can all cozy up. I feel swell - she feels swell. You know... it's very stimulating. This revival is my kind of Golly Showbiz. Oh, and don't forget - don't play Scarlet O'Hara with a small gun on the stage.

WOW! MR. HOSPITALITY IS NOW WEARING A CUT COVERLET BETWEEN HIS LEGS. Is that a Horse that smells of "Venus?" The girls gasped!

One of the guys were playing with his thumbs. He wears a real tall hat with a legend in his head. Its all so much fun and confusing. The King explains a plot to all of us. 

This is a real problem. The Master gets shoved around. Someone said: The King's hands are always on 'front parts'. Tsk, Tsk - Maybe he's an oldie - but a real good goodie! 

Oh, by the way...there is Permission granted to buy snacks and pee before the show begins. After all...it's 90 minutes long. The King continued to cross the legs. But, oh what fun!

WORLD PREMIERE - "IN A WORD" BY LAUREN YEE









in a word 

IF THERE WAS ANYTHING GOING ON IN "A WORLD PREMIERE"...THIS IS IT! 

Right now is the best time. Fiona is the best two-year anniversary to find out that her son has disappeared. Her husband  (we found out) is an incompetent detective. The disappearing young man. Yep - for sure - Fiona's son is kinda nutty. Her son is a cold and strange young man. One minute her son loves his mother -- and then she can't seem to get everyone together - at right time place. Don't attempt to take care of the young man that tries to take on dangerous new meanings. It's her son. Yes, she's nerve wracking.   

At the Sandbox (2014-2015) Series - we talk about theatrical. This is the best around town. The Directors and Actors expose all of us to new voices. Her son tries to get on the line, but with limited design cold elements. All of dangerous new meanings. Yeh - there is something very much hot on the edge. 

THE CAST INCLUDES GREG AYERS, JESSICA BATES and CASSIDY BROWN

The terrific top-notch directors and actors -  are the new voices in American Theatre. The Sandbox Series promotes the way it should be. Hip, Hip Hooray! You won't want to miss at the "Sandbox Series" at the San Francisco Playhouse (Tides Theatre) 533 Sutter St., 2nd Floor.
