Legend on Stage Alert: Angela Lansbury back in ‘Blithe Spirit’

Blithe Spirit

How can one pass up seeing a true acting legend live on stage? I don't know about you but once I heard Angela Lansbury would be reprising her Tony award-winning role in the revival of English playwright Noël Coward's 1941 play Blithe Spirit (a comedy classic) right here in Los Angeles on its North American tour–my calendar was marked months in advance! Last weekend was Blithe Spirit's opening night held at Center Theatre Group's Ahmanson MORE

‘What The Butler Saw’ will have you in stitches!

What The Butler Saw

There's only nine performances left of English playwright Joe Orton's 1969 farce, What The Butler Saw, at Center Theatre Group's Mark Taper Forum, located in DTLA's Music Center. I saw the play a couple of weeks ago on its official opening night and without a doubt it was one of the most hilarious plays I've ever seen–I absolutely LOVED it. The fun starts off with a psychiatrist (played by Charles Shaughnessy of The Nanny fame) trying to seduce MORE

BANKS has me ‘Beggin For Thread’ on repeat

BANKS

A few weeks ago I caught BANKS' second sold out show at The Wiltern, which also was the final night of her Goddess Tour. I caught 26-year-old Los Angeles based singer / songwriter BANKS (Jillian Rose Banks) last December at Hollywood Forever's Masonic Lodge–and although I was quite impressed by her vocals–nothing grabbed me that night. Fast forward to September–BANKS drops her debut album, Goddess (on Harvest Records), I fall completely MORE

Sinéad O’Connor has ‘8 Good Reasons’ (maybe 9 now)

Sinéad O'Connor

I've loved Sinéad O'Connor for years and her tenth studio album, I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss (released on Nettwerk), is definitely one of 2014's best! Catch her just released music video for "8 Good Reasons," one of the album's best tracks as Sinéad gets quite candid in the lyrics. Having been raised Catholic–I get everything that Sinéad has been so vocal about over the year–her brave performance on SNL in 1992 remains MORE

Ferras knows how to “Speak In Tongues”

Ferras "Speak In Tongues"

Easily one of this year's best releases ... don't miss Ferras' new music video for the title track of his EP, Speak In Tongues. I got to see him open for Katy Perry (having just signed to her new label) a few months ago and he was fantastic. Please do pay attention when I actually manage to give a male artist the time of day ... as many of you know that I am so all about the ladies when it comes to music–but then you a have guy like Ferras pop MORE
