Six Degrees of Separation at the Little Theatre

Six Degrees of Separation is a wonderful play written by playwright John Guare that premiered in 1990 – first in Lincoln Center and later that year on Broadway. The play was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play.

The play explores the premise that everyone in the world is connected to everyone else in the world by a chain of no more than six acquaintances, thus, “six degrees of separation“.

Inspired by a true story, it follows the trail of a young black con man, Paul, who inserts himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple, claiming he knows their kids at college. Paul tells them he is the son of actor Sidney Poitier, and that he has just been mugged and all his money is gone. Captivated by Paul’s intelligence and his fascinating conversation (and the possibility of appearing in a new Sidney Poitier movie), they invite him to stay overnight…But in the morning they discover him in bed with a young male hustler from the streets, and the picture begins to change.

After kicking him out, Ouisa and Flan discover that friends of theirs have had a similar run-in with the brash con artist. Intrigued, they turn detective and piece together the connections that gave Paul access to their lives. Meanwhile, Paul’s cons unexpectedly lead him into darker territory and his lies begin to catch up with him. As the final events of the play unfold Ouisa suddenly finds herself caring for Paul, feeling that he gave them far more than he took and that her once idyllic life was not what it seemed to be.

**PLEASE NOTE: This play contains nudity. No one under 18 will be admitted.

Community Theatre Update: “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”

Las Vegas has a wonderful selection of Amateur Theatre to enjoy. This wonderful musical is being performed at The Las Vegas Little Theatre main stage from now thru September 22.  The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee with music and lyrics by William Finn and the book by Rachel Sheinkin.

The story is about an eclectically diverse group of six kids that are vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The kids are played by adults which makes it even funnier! During the spelling bee the kids candidly disclose hilarious and touching stories from their home lives. The tweens spell their way through a series of words, hoping not to hear the soul-crushing “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.  This is a riotous musical ride.

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. The show centers on a fictional spelling bee set in a geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School.  The show was first produced in 2005.

The Las Vegas Little Theatre is located at 3920 Schiff Drive and their phone number is 702-362-7996.  For tickets go to https://www.goldstar.com/venues/las-vegas-nv/las-vegas-little-theatre

Hilarity with “Noises Off” at the Super Summer Theatre

“Noises Off” at the Super Summer Theatre in the Springs Mountain Ranch will have its run from September 5 – 21.  This show has been called “the funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.  “Noises Off” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH INC.  This production is produced by Poor Richard’s Players and directed by Benjamin Loewy.

This play was originally produced in 1982 play by the English playwright Michael Frayn. The idea for it came in 1970, when Frayn was watching from the wings a performance of The Two of Us, a farce that he had written for Lynn Redgrave. He said, “It was funnier from behind than in front, and I thought that one day I must write a farce from behind.” The prototype, a short-lived one-act play called Exits, was written and performed in 1977. At the request of his associate, Michael Codron, Frayn expanded this into what would become Noises Off. It takes its title from the theatrical stage direction indicating sounds coming from offstage.

Bleach Presents NEON NIGHTS COMEDY – at the Cockroach Theatre

The Cockroach Theatre began with a midnight performance of LINE by Israel Horovitz in December of 2002. Friends for years, and having studied together in the theater department at University of Nevada Las Vegas they decided to produce the type of theatre that hadn’t been seen in Las Vegas.  Directed by the late local critic Tony DelValle, Israel Horovitz’ LINE was an unexpected critical and popular success.

Here we are many years later with Bleach Presents Neon Nights – which is a long form improv comedy show. Long form improv is theater made up on the spot inspired from an audience suggestion. These shows are not scripted. They have never been performed before and will never be performed again.

The performances will take place at 8p.m.  Sun Aug 11, 2019, Sun Aug 18, 2019 and  Sun Aug 25, 2019.  The Cockroach Theatre is located at 1025 South 1st Street 89101- right next to The Art Factory and Ninja Karaoke.

Go back to Chicago during the roaring 20’s

“Chicago”, by the incredible Bob Fosse, was the longest running American musical on Broadway and now will be performed at the Super Summer Theatre at Spring Mountain Ranch from July 31 to August 17.

The story takes place in the 1920’s and tells the story of chorus girl Roxie Hart.  She murdered her faithless lover and convinces her husband to take the rap for the crime.  He then finds out that he was duped and turns on Roxie.  Of course she is convicted of the crime and sent to death row where she meets Velma Kelly.  The two Merry Murderesses vie with each other for the spotlight and headlines until they decide to join forces.

Chicago is filled with songs and dance numbers that you will be tapping your feet to, however this play is rated PG-13 since it has some sexual content & dialogue, plus some violence.

Go see Chicago or one of the other shows playing this season – and bring the entire family.  Bring a blanket or chairs plus some food and refreshments and maybe a sweater (it’s much cooler there than down in the valley).  In my opinion, it is the best live-theatre venue in our valley.

The rest of the summer season will continue with 2 more great shows; ”Annie” and “Noises Off”.  All the information you need is at the web site, https://supersummertheatre.org/current-season/#.
