Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol by Tom Mula December 3-19, 2021

An interesting twist on the classic Dicken’s tale told from the perspective of Scrooge’s business partner Jacob Marley.   This fun and innovative production is sure to put you in the holiday spirit. 

“Scrooge? I have to redeem old Scrooge? The one man I knew who was worse than I was? Impossible!”

So begins the real story behind Dickens’ A Christmas Carol—the story of Jacob Marley’s heroic behind-the-scenes efforts to save old Scrooge’s soul—and in the process, save his own. Aided by a Bogle, a malicious little hell-sprite with an agenda of his own, their hilarious journey takes them from the Jaws of Death to the Mouth of Hell—and beyond! This irreverent, funny, and ultimately, deeply moving story retells Dickens’ classic with warmth and infectious zest. This thrilling performance is sure to become a holiday classic for generations to come!

Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol played for two seasons at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre. The show was nominated for four Joseph Jefferson Awards, and received an After Dark Award and the Goodman School of Drama’s Cunningham Prize for Playwriting. The play has since been performed to rave reviews and standing ovations in theatres across the country, including: Cincinnati Shakespeare, American Stage Festival, Delaware Rep, Bristol Riverside Theatre, Stages Repertory in Houston, North Coast Rep, Third Avenue Playhouse, Sage Theatre Group, and the 1894 Opera House. For seven seasons, it has been broadcast nationally on NPR.

Live performances:

Friday, Dec 3, 10 & 17 @ 8pm

The Smith Center Has Reopened!!

Myron Martin, president and CEO of The Smith Center, had his big day on Sept. 14, 2021 it marked the reopening of the city’s center of cultural and performing arts that has been shuttered since March 2020 by the pandemic.

The Smith Center’s ghost light that sits in the center of the stage when the venue is not in use, has been glowing for more than 600 days.  Martin stated “It’s not something we ever contemplated, so to replace the ghost light with the bright lights of in-person performances is exhilarating for so many reasons.”

Not only is Martin excited to welcome patrons of the arts back to The Smith Center, he is beyond thrilled to once again embrace the Center’s family members – staff, employees and volunteers who each contribute to the venue’s success and execution of its many productions. 

Slated for the month of October are two noteworthy Broadway hits Cats with performancesTuesday, Oct. 12 – Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021 and An Officer and a Gentleman Tuesday, Oct. 26 – Sunday, Oct. 31, 2021

Rediscover CATS—the beloved musical with breathtaking music—including one of the most treasured songs in musical theater, “Memory.” Featuring new sound design, direction and choreography for a new generation — experience CATS for the first time as it begins a new life, or let it thrill you all over again!

Based on the Oscar-winning film starring Richard Gere, AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN is a breathtaking production that celebrates triumph over adversity and includes one of the most iconic and romantic endings ever portrayed on screen. Features the Grammy Award-winning, #1 hit single “Up Where We Belong.” 

The one silver lining of the pandemic is all the new development at Symphony Park that is adding new vibrancy to the area.  Two new apartment communities, along with additional parking have come to completion over the past year. “It’s fun to watch nearby residents stroll through the neighborhood. With plans for future restaurants including Vic’s that will open in 2022, Symphony Park is truly taking shape as city leaders envisioned. “Performing arts centers have long been regarded as catalysts for development and The Smith Center is no exception,” said Martin.

The Smith Center, which already has a full schedule of planned performances this fall, including Broadway touring shows, the Las Vegas Philharmonic, Nevada Ballet Theatre and more, has also adopted a vaccine mandate for both guests and staff.  Martin, who sits on a number of industry committees, including the Broadway League and the top 30 performing arts centers in North America, has participated in weekly calls over the past 18 months with a range of experts, including epidemiologists from Harvard, ventilation and touchless system specialists and other leaders from throughout the entertainment world.

Sunday, April 18 & 25 @ 2pm

Twelve Dates of Christmas – Streaming!

If you’re like me, you wish we could go to the theatre… and since we still can’t, Super Summer Theatre is doing the next best thing this weekend, with a holiday theme. They will be presenting a virtual show streaming performances on

The Play:  How bad can the Holidays be?  After seeing her fiancé kiss another woman at the televised Thanksgiving Day Parade, Mary’s life falls apart — just in time for the holidays. Over the next year, she stumbles back into the dating world, where “romance” ranges from weird and creepy to absurd and comical. It seems nothing can help Mary’s growing cynicism, until the charm and innocence of a five-year-old boy unexpectedly brings a new outlook on life and love. This heartwarming one-woman play offers a hilarious and modern alternative to the old standards of the holiday season.

This play was written by Ginna Hoben and directed by Joe Hynes and filmed by Doug Greig.

Tickets will only cost $18.95 per household and will be Streamed through Broadway On Demand (and by the way the Stream will open up 30 minutes before the performance)

ERMA BOMBECK: AT WIT’S END with safe practice performances December 2020

After its successful online run, The Las Vegas Little Theatre is overjoyed to be able to welcome patrons back to the theatre for a Live in person performance of a hilarious one woman show ERMA BOMBECK: AT WIT’S END.   Of course, due to safety and health regulations, things will be a bit different than all of us are used to. They plan to follow strict safety guidelines including reduced capacity, 6-foot distance with seating and mandatory masks.

They must maintain a 25-foot distance between the audience and the stage so the first row for seating with be the 6th row. There is NO SEATING in the first five rows which means patrons MUST be able to climb stairs in order to attend the performance.  Seats will also be socially distanced so there will be a limited number of seats per row.  

Wisecracking and charming, iconic humorist Erma Bombeck takes us through her journey from homemaker, to popular syndicated columnist, to feminist crusader and more. ERMA BOMBECK: AT WIT’S ENDis directed by Vegas Valley Award Winner Walter Niejadlik and stars local actress Gillen Brey, this one-woman show is a hilarious, poignant look at Bombeck’s ambition to define herself beyond the roles of wife and mother—while still embracing how these “ordinary” things can bring extraordinary joy. 

The play was written by sister-playwriting duo Allison Engel and Margaret Engel. This clever show pulls largely from Bombeck’s famed columns and best-selling books, chronicling her life as a suburban housewife and how she used her wit and wisdom to charm her way into the hearts of readers across the country.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at www.lvlt.org. 

ERMA BOMBECK: AT WIT’S END will perform

Saturdays, 12/5 & 12 @8pm and

At Las Vegas Little Theatre – The Show Must Go On!!! (despite all of the obstacles)

As we all know a lot of things have changed since the beginning of March.  The Strip closed down for two months and now reopened with restrictions.  Live plays with audiences have not come back yet.

But as they say in show business “the show must go on”.  In that spirit the Las Vegas Little Theatre is trying a bit of a new concept.  They have the stage set for a play however you will watch it via Zoom.

At the moment there are two performances left of The Quarantine Monologues.  I saw it last week and I recommend it.  You can see it on July 31 and August 2 online for only $15 per device.  For tickets, click https://bit.ly/3gYjQrt or contact the box office at 702-362-7996.  

On August 1 – there will be a live-streaming extravaganza (most likely via Zoom also however I would check with the box office); a benefit performance of Deception At The Disco!  Frannie Fabiano (Gillen Brey), LVLT’s new Event Coordinator has hired three acts to entertain: The Diva (Joy Demain), Vinnie Vegas (Michael Kaczurak) & the Vinnettes (Monica Johns and Melissa Riezler), and Troy Tritone (Glenn Heath). Everything is about to hit the fan when The Diva finds out she is not the only headliner for the evening and that her ex-fiancé and ex- backup group are also on the bill to perform. Tempers are raised and there are threats tossed around in this hilarious Who Dunnit. Someone is about to make their last appearance!

Oh, and the sleuth that’s gonna crack the case? It’s you! The audience!

It is so great to be able to write about something happening in the theatre community and hopefully there will be more to tell you about soon.

Local Theatre Highlight – The Spitfire Grill

The Spitfire Grill is an American musical with music and book by James Valcq and lyrics and book by Rachel Sheinkin. It is based on the 1996 film of the same name by Lee David Zlotoff. The Off-Broadway production by Playwrights Horizons began previews at the Duke Theatre on 42nd Street on September 7, 2001 and concluded its scheduled run on October 14, 2001. It won the Richard Rodgers Production Award, administered by The American Academy of Arts and Letters

A feisty parolee named Percy Talbott follows her dreams, based on a page from an old travel book, to a small (fictional) town in Wisconsin that one of its inhabitants calls “a place for leaving, not for coming to.”  Arriving in Gilead, Percy reports to the local Sheriff, Joe Sutter, who leads her through the deserted streets to a ramshackle diner called the Spitfire Grill, run by a crusty old widow, Hannah Ferguson, who has a bad hip and sharp tongue. Joe persuades Hannah to take Percy on board and give her work as a waitress.

In the face of all the gossip and Hannah’s constant haranguing, Percy begins to wonder whether she made a mistake in coming to Gilead, and soon finds herself, helping out the Spitfire. She is joined at the Spitfire by Caleb’s wife Shelby, an excellent cook. In the heat of the kitchen the two women are drawn together.

The Spitfire Grill has been for sale for ten years with no takers. Percy proposes a way for Hannah to get rid of the Spitfire and make some money at the same time. At first Hannah resists, but slowly, something about the craziness of the idea convinces her that it just might work.

The play is at the Las Vegas Little Theatre, 3920 Schiff Drive , 702-362-7996  and runs from now through  March 22, 2020  to purchase tickets go to http://bit.ly/2vkhVeB

Men on Boats at the Art Square Theatre

Men on Boats is a comedy by Jaclyn Backhaus.  There are four boats and ten explorers in this true(ish) story of an 1869 expedition, when a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. Masculinity and manifest destiny meet their gender-flipped match in this hilarious and highly physical show. 

In this retelling of Captain John Wesley Powell’s expedition the crewmen are always up for shooting the rapids, the breeze and edible wildlife. They hail from the United States of the mid-19th century, when assertive, unquestioning masculinity was something that stood tall and unchallenged.

Oh, and just so you know there isn’t a man in the 10-member cast of “Men on Boats,” at least not according to the strict anatomical definition. 

The fun begins on February 19 and runs through March 15 at the Art Square Theatre, 1025 S 1st St #110, Las Vegas NV 89101.  For more information call 725-222-9661.  Order tickets:  http://siteline.vendini.com/site/artsquaretheatre.com

February 19 ($15 Preview) 7:30pm

February 20 (Opening) 7:30pm

Fridays 7:30pm, Saturdays 2pm & 7:30pm, Sundays 5pm

(No show on the first Friday of the month.)
