Late Guest at the Party

Late Guest at the Party 

Check out NYC based Italian electro-rock group, LATE GUEST AT THE PARTY  and their BRAND NEW single “Gravel”.

Their first critically acclaimed debut LP garnered rave reviews from Radio BBC One and Rolling Stone Magazine. Since then, they’ve been joined by lead vocalist and notable producer, Caleb Shreve (formerly Chuck Body), who’s worked with many influential artists, including: Phantogram, Yoko Ono, Wu-Tang Clan, Peter Bjorn & John, Tegan and Sara, Santigold and many more.

Combining elements from different genres since they started out in 2002, eclectic Italian group Late Guest at the Party have always been able to cross several geographical and musical borders with their unique sound made of well-read electro lashes, engaging beats and catchy anthems, all permeated by a peculiar r’n’r DNA and 90′s brit-pop / rave hints.

“Italy’s Late Guest at the Party creates the musical backdrop and catchy melodies that any good pop band should have, but they’ve also got the bite of a rock band.”   Pigeons and Planes

“Late Guest at the Party are high on the heels to becoming the next big thing.”— Filter Magazine

Happy Birthday Will! Celebrate Shakespeare in Long Beach, CA


William Shakespeare will officially be 450 years old on April 23rd, 2014.  The man who brought us “To be or not to be,” “Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo,” “By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes,” and so many other phrases that live on the tips of our tongues, is someone to celebrate! 

He coined over 1,700 new words — among them: majestic, champion, amazement, discontent, premeditated, bedroom, advertising, compromise, impartial, laughable, excitement, and so on…and on… and on! He created immortal lovers who fill us with passion, inspiring heroes who urge us to action or warn us against haste, and clowns that show us our own follies.

In 2000, he was voted The Man of the Millennium!

For the rest of the month here are a few events presented by the Long Beach Theatre Company that you can attend to celebrate the spirit of the bard.

lbsc-logoApril 18 and 19— Two half-hour old-time radio shows, both performed with live music and sound effects. 

Gunsmoke episode: “Shakespeare”—From 1952, a good story about a crazed Shakespearean actor who commits murder during a Kansas heat wave. 

“Mister Shakespeare”—From 1948, a story about what MIGHT happen if the greatest of all playwrights could come out of the past to work for a modern motion picture studio.

The Bard 450 years April 23— The Official Birthday. In partnership with World Book Night U.S., LBSC will give away a FREE copy of the Shakespeare Sonnets to each person in attendance. The actors will perform selected sonnets, followed by a reception with cake and beverages to celebrate Shakespeare’s birth!


April 25 and 26— Richard Armour’s Twisted Tales From Shakespeare. A parody of serious lectures on the Bard. 

April 27 —LBSC presents the final event of Shakespeare Month. FREE! Louis Fantasia, Director of Shakespeare at the Huntington Library and former Director of the Shakespeare Globe Centre’s Teaching Shakespeare Through Performance Institute from 1997 to 2002, presents “King Lear or Survivor—Tragedy in The Age of Oprah.” 

At the Richard Goad Theatre, 4250 Atlantic Ave. in Long Beach.

Sunday performances at 2 pm; all others at 8 pm.

We love the look of this brand too!


A Midsummer Night’s Dream with Puppets at The Broad Stage

A Midsummer Night's Dream
by Tracey Paleo, Gia On the Move


“I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.” ~ Bottom

I won’t mince words here. I’m no bard. I’ll get right to the point.  The current production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, CA, from the creators of War Horse, is the most inspired, hilarious, wicked, spot-on presentation of a classic that a visiting company has dared to offer.

Seamless to the core the actors ravished the language and milked the comedy thoroughly. The bonus was the masterful un-traditional puppetry that added extra flavor, punch and mystique to an age-old favorite.  How will we ever be able to experience this play again without the artistic exactitude and sheer outlandishness of this wildly colorful bent?

A Midsummer Nights DreamBritish Theatre Company Bristol Old Vic has teamed up once again with the Handspring Puppet Company of Capetown, South Africa, foremost in its home country, for a newly imagined, bawdy “Dream” adapting this classic archetypal story of love, into a heady sex-capade, flighty, robust and poetic.   With the permission of the Broad Stage, boundaries are pushed and shape-shifted altogether as spritely as the weirdly acquired fairy band and the king and queen who voluptuously rule them. Without giving away the absolutely stunning surprises of this show, let’s just say, it’s not exactly g-rated and that made this rather fervent rendition so dirty and delicious.  But don’t worry. Every bit of  Shakespeare’s classic is intact. It’s just so much more.

Finally, the unexpected has happened and it is glorious!

To note: this is actually a remount.  The original performance took place at the Bristol Old Vic between February 28 and May 4, 2013.

It may be bold to say, but as a common rule Brits and those who study under their traditions, typically, are devotees of language and the masters of lingua franca where projection, articulation and intelligibility are concerned.  So very boldly, it should be noted that the Bristol Old Vic cast had no problem “crushing it!” There was not a word, a moment, a joke, a jest, a threat, wish, want or need left to linger in the minds of the audience.  Every bit of the vocabulary and intent was crystal clear making this cast perfectly understandable and therefore the play deeply divine in all its extensions.

The curiosity of this particular production is that none of the actors had any prior experience with puppetry and not only learned the lines but the choreography of their wooden and metal toys. The result was an extraordinary realization of decadent possibility immersing the audience into a blurred reality. The surprises of this superb and very groundbreaking exposition will take your breath away.

MSND_prod_shot7_credit_Simon_Annand_96dpi__smallerAs for the familiars…intact is the biting mischief of puck who no longer takes human form but is reduced to a lively, mechanical, little set of garden-instruments.  It is quite ingenious how he is made to take on dog-like characteristics with barely anything that resembles a mammal in symmetry yet perfectly prances, cows, barks, licks, runs, flies and still performs human tasks at his master, Oberon’s command, badly of course, hence the lovers’ comedy.

Oberon and Titania stand as statuesque god-like giants among men and women in their new form, imprimiting an unmistakably mythological, all-encompassing, “forces of nature” tone to their exits, entrances and fairyland stand-offs. It’s eerie, potent and regal.

As for the rest of the attending spirits, they are an assortment of childlike, cupids and what nots, some even scary to behold, entirely loyal to their respective celestials and free as the wind.

Theseus and Hippolyta remain ever the solid reason of all of the characters. Tending to be stoic in other productions their love play is just that. In public Theseus is every bit the ruler of Athen’s and Titania his war won prisoner.  But in private he is a blocked lover whose furtive almost boyish romantic advances are cooly met by fairy queen worshipping Hippolyta in a flirtatious duel, offering a delightful side of a relationship that is not so written in the lines.

The lovers true to form quicken the chase as a rather infantile set of teenagers roaming the forest fighting over each others’ affections as one would expect to witness at a high school sports brawl. They are each quite naive and entertaining.

But oh, The Mechanicals!

There may have never been a production since the inception of the work that The Mechanicals have not stolen the show.  And this was a show-stopping show-stealing performance to surpass all — especially that of Bottom.  These clumsy well-meaning working class gents are perfectly sublime, passionate and frighteningly funny. Their antics and idiocy know no bounds.  But Bottom’s transformation is taken to a thoroughly shocking height in gut busting, unbelievable theatricality.

If you’ve never heard and seen this play before rather than explain it here, a link has been included for your perusal.  And whether you have or have not experienced it for the first time, this will undoubtedly be your FIRST.  Every actor shines with his or her own particular brilliance. Every moment is truly magical!

It is a limited run showing only until April 19th.  Tickets are available through the Broad Stage website:
