A review for Floyd Collins at La Mirada from 2014!
The above-ground action, staged with a stylized surrealism, works better: Balloons are sold, tall tales are told, and three newspaper hacks suddenly perform in tight harmony as a vaudeville act. One actor, Michael Byrne, plays multiple roles and keeps appearing in new costumes (by Kara McLeod) at a speed that defies explanation.

Two years ago, I met Deb Bell at a conference. She told me she was putting together a book about Masquerade and I pitched a topic to her. Now you can buy the book, with my essay on Halloween as the American masquerade in it!

Theater of Note has created a new trailer for the show with interviews from our writer, Erik Patterson and director, McKerrin Kelly.
I Wanna Hold Your Hand has been extended, and we have a new review!
“…design elements are thoroughly first-rate, from Cricket S. Myer’s edgy urban sound design to Bosco Flanagan’s subtly mood-enhancing lighting to Kara McLeod’s character-perfect costumes to Misty Carlisle’s multitude of props that fill in the blanks in the play’s Starbucks-hospital waiting room-Manhattan apartment settings.”
The book I am contributing to is now up on the publisher’s website! Available for pre-order!
Production elements create an imposing backdrop for the insanity on stage including the cold gray and wine colored palette of Dean Cameron’s scenic design and Kara McLeod’s shredded textiles.
The tech team performs admirably. A few benches are carried on and off Dean Cameron’s simply draped stage, to keep it open; the lighting (Tito Fleetwood Ladd) and sound (Joseph V. Calarco) are unobtrusive, emotionally effective and timely. And the costumes (Kara Mcleod) use a wise restraint — simple, muted modern clothes with classical signifiers (capes, a dress, a helmet).
