  • Noises Off

    Michael Frayn’s Noises Off takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run.  Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind t…

    What They Said About Love

    Steve wonders why other people can and he can’t tie-the-knot, that is. So he asked couples about the push and pull of love—what keeps them from pulling apart despite annoying the heck out of each other. Meet a New Age couple that swears they met before they met, a pair of Metal Heads who thought it would be a hoot to get married on 6-6-06, and more. Satisfy your voyeuristic tendencies about how others look for love—and, in some cases, find it. This is documentary theater at its best, a la Anna Deavere Smith. Steve Budd brings 12 characters to life, using their words from hours of interviews, and weaves in the story of his own search for a life partner.

    Written and performed by Steve Budd.

    La Vida Loca

    An apolitical in-your-face odyssey of a Mexican Immigrant Carlos Manuel’s LA VIDA LOCA, is a monologue stuffed full with life. Carefully constructed to both heroize and expose the author/performer, his “crazy” life is revealed through a crazy quilt of carefully crafted memories, fantasies, dialogues, and excerpts from pop culture.

    The highly kinetic performance brings the already lively account to a fully form life, charming and occasionally challenging the audience to question their assumptions about ethnic and sexual identity, through the crossing of physical and psychological borders.

  • “The Curtain Rises” – Book on California Theatre’s Restoration

    “The Curtain Rises” is a photo book celebrating the arduous process of renovating the historic California Theatre in Pittsburg, California. Most of the photographs are the work of Joseph P. Lombardo, a member of a longtime Pittsburg family who dedicated many hours to chronicling the months of construction. Built by Sylvester and Salvatore Enea, the California Theatre opened in 1920 as a premiere venue for live vaudeville performances and silent films. By 1954, the grand theater closed and fell into neglect. Over the years, local theater groups and downtown businesses urged its restoration, and by 2009, a $7.2 million restoration…

    Luther Vandross Tribute Featuring Ray McCoy

    Ray McCoy has been singing for his whole life, but mostly in places where no one could hear. Seven years ago, when the calling and the purpose became greater than his desire for solitude, Ray was moved to reveal his overwhelming passion for singing. This passion can be found from start to finish in Ray’s Luther Vandross Tribute Show, while performing original Vandross classics including many of his well known ballads and love songs such as So Amazing, Here and Now, A House Is Not A Home, and Superstar.

    In 2010 KBLX Radio celebrated the group as the Event of the Year for their performance at the Dunsmuir Mansion House in Oakland. That same year, the band performed Sundays In The Redwood at The Woodminster Amphitheater alongside season headliners Pete Escovedo, Goapele, The Oakland East Bay Symphony, Angie Stone, and George Duke.

    So you know it’s gonna be a class act! You may or may not have heard about Ray McCoy but hearing is believing…..
