David Hare’s Skylight is an excellent play, one of the best plays written in the last 50 years. Sharply written, multi-layered, beautifully constructed, engaging, and timely, it is a good-humored, entertaining, highly-charged emotional rollercoaster ride of a play. 
 
Director Steve Grumette does us a great favor bringing it to the 805 and giving us a well-crafted professional production with scintillating acting from Anna Kotula as Kyra Hollis and Noah Terry as Edward Sargeant, with an admirable debut from Buddy Wilds as the son, Tom Sargeant.
 
The other good news is that the Ojai Art Center Theatre has lowered its ticket prices for this season.
 

4000MILES PRESS 5Review-
Santa Paula Theatre Center continues an interesting season of strong dramas with Amy Herzog's Pulitzer-Prize-nominated comedy, 4000 Miles.  Set in the East Village New York City apartment of a 91-year-old partisan widow, Vera, the play opens as her 21-year-old grandson, Leo, appears at three in the morning at the end of a tragic 4000 mile cross-country bike ride.
 
Marilyn Lazik and Parker Harris star in the Pulitzer Prize nominated comic /drama 4000 Miles, at the Santa Paula Theater Center.

introEye On This Artist
Mariana Peirano is another artist who I think we should keep an eye on.  I don't remember where I first saw her painting "just when it all falls apart", but I fell in love with it. Although the painting is eerie, I love it because the girl in the painting reminds me of a remarkable young woman who is no longer with us named Chloe Blohm who I had the amazing opportunity to meet through her mother. Chloe was also artist, and in fact, I commissioned her first painting which graces the top of my staircase.  I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to interview the artist of that beautiful painting.  Funny how things work out.

-BREAKING NEWS-
CABRILLO MUSIC THEATRE TO PROCEED WITH THE 2016-2017 SEASON.
An energized community and a new business plan keeps “Broadway In Your Backyard” with three great musicals .
(Thousand Oaks, CA)  The Board of Directors of Cabrillo Music Theatre is very proud to announce that the company has secured donations from members of the community, which will allow it to continue production of the 2016-2017 season!
After recently announcing the suspension of production due to a lack of resources, these contributions will provide Cabrillo with the ability to retool the organization, to engage in a new focus and strategy, and to move into the future in a fiscally responsible way. The Board of Directors is committed to taking these opportunities- a reduced 2016-2017 schedule, a substantial infusion of resources, and an energized and passionate community - to design a Cabrillo Music Theatre for the future.
