Culver City Cultivates Comedy with The Secret Show @ Blind Barber

It starts with a stretch; if you don't already know that the simple barber shop on Washington Blvd. in front of the Culver Center is a front for a 'speakeasy' called the Blind Barber, your stretch starts there. Yes, the front shop is a working hair salon, but it's sort of a foyer for the real biz, the long, dark barroom behind. Most nights, it's a cool place to get a drink and chat with the [...]

‘Chavez Ravine’ and the Culture Clash Phenomenon

‘Chavez Ravine’ and the Culture Clash Phenomenon

While watching the revival of "Chavez Ravine" at the Kirk Douglas Theater on Wednesday, Feb. 4, it occurred to me that 'Culture Clash' was not just the name of the theater company that created the piece, but really a complete metaphor. "Chavez Ravine" is a play, a concert, a history lesson and a brilliant illustration of how the simple life was consumed by the slick power grab. It's required [...]
