"Little Drummer Bowie" Non-Traditional Christmas Story by Troubies

The setting is Jerusalem / Bethlehem at the time of Christ’s birth. The energy is Rock-N-Roll. The pungent spice is our current political situation. The bonus? An unexpectedly intimate experience. The Troubadour Theater Company’s “Little Drummer Bowie” at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank will chase your winter blues away!

The Troubadour Theater Company is known – and recognized – for reinventing classics to the tune of contemporary music and timely satire.

In “Little Drummer Bowie” the story of the Holy Family intertwines with a story of an abandoned drummer boy, who rises to fame as Ziggy Stardust and becomes corrupted by fame. (He subsequently falls from grace which gives him the opportunity to ponder existential questions and learn the true meaning of life.) The show incorporates references to current events (including one to the memorable statement delivered by a “Hamilton” cast member, Brandon Victor Dixon, to Vice President Elect Mike Pence) and past events (like the famous 1977 Bing Crosby and David Bowie Christmas duet).

The storyline of “Little Drummer Bowie” is secondary (Someone is born and someone else is reborn); it is merely the string that holds together many individual jewels of musical performances. There is singing, dancing, humor and surprises throughout the show. An example of a surprise? The Three Wise Men, in Troubies’ interpretation of events, are: Don King, Larry King and Billie Jean King….

Matt Walker, the artistic director of The Troubadour Theater Company co-directed the play with Joseph Leo Bwarie.

The star of “Little Drummer Bowie” is Joseph Leo Bwarie who takes on the challenge of becoming red-haired, glam rocker Ziggy Stardust and performing David Bowie’s greatest hits (including “Under Pressure”, “Let’s Dance”, “Drummer Boy”, “Changes”, “Fame”, and more) and succeeds. (His rendition of “Ground Control To Captain Tom” is particularly stirring.) No wonder, considering that Bwarie is a seasoned veteran of musical theatre. He’s been Frankie Valli in the Tony Award® winning musical Jersey Boys in the National Tour, Las Vegas productions and on Broadway over 2,000 times. Incidentally, he isn’t any worse for wear!

The cast is excellent, each actor is multi-faceted and all performances are fittingly enthusiastic. Lisa Valenzuela (Ovation Award Winner) and Cloie Wyatt Taylor (an inspired dancer) stand out for their performances. Beth Kennedy (Ovation Award Winner) has a star quality. For me personally, Rick Batalla (Ovation Award Winner) – in his many incarnations during the play – is the life of the show!

The band is conducted by the accomplished Eric Heinly (drums) and features Kevin McCourt (keyboards), BJ Johnson (bass), Mike Abraham (guitar), Kirsten Edkins and Ashley Jarmack (reeds). The music – of utmost importance in this case – is in no way inferior to a rock concert thanks to a great team performance. Eric Heinly’s drum mastery is outstanding. Special applause is due to an extra-ordinary saxophonist whose name – shame on me! – escapes me. (Please accept my apology: I’ll welcome your help in correcting this unpleasant omission.)

Reviews usually don’t mention stage lighting. In this case I have to make an exception. An occasional spotlight on the audience was a stroke of genius reminding us that the magic of any live show happens only when the show resonates with the audience. “Little Drummer Bowie” does. The credit for creative lighting goes to JM Montecalvo and Skylar Johnson. (And yes, Claudio Radosshia)

I’d be amiss, if I didn’t highlight two factors which undoubtedly influenced this review. The size and style of The Falcon Theatre lend themselves to a more intimate experience of a play. The feeling is sustained by the cast of Troubies that interacts with the audience. The result is a warm mood which brings the artists and the audience together in a celebration. There is no “glass wall” separating the two. There is no “us” and “them”. The experience is a shared one which makes it so much more. The artists and the audience immerse themselves in the joy of Christmas Season, share the musical legacy of Bowie, share a laugh and our spoken – and unspoken – collective thoughts.

You’ll smile, you’ll laugh out loud, you’ll rock to David Bowie’s hits, you’ll get taken aback by the self-deprecating humor of the cast. In spite of the fact that the show revolves around Bethlehem and Jesus’ birth, it doesn’t have the sentimentality of a Christmas story but the crispness of a parody and rock concert.

Granted, “Little Drummer Bowie” is a non-traditional Christmas story. Its great energy, singing, dancing and humor however will bring any Grinch into a festive mood.

The show is dedicated by the Troubadour Theater Company’s to the Falcon Theatre’s Founder, Garry Marshall who passed away, recently. Considering his commitment to nurturing theatrical innovation and his long history with Troubies, he’d surely welcome this tribute…

See “Little Drummer Bowie” at the Falcon Theatre – if you can still get tickets! – first class, lighthearted entertainment succeeds only when it is created and delivered by high caliber artists. The Troubies are.

…. And to All: Merry Christmas!

Kelly Carlin
Born in Dayton, Ohio in 1963, Kelly Carlin grew up watching her father, George Carlin, become a counter-culture hero with his comedy. As a child, Kelly explored her own creativity by writing skits and doing imitations (her Ethel Merman was quite good for an eight year old). She began her professional life in her teens working behind the scenes with her mother, Brenda, on various shows for HBO that continued into her twenties. In 1993, at the ripe age of 30, she graduated from UCLA, Magna Cum Laude, with a B.A. in Communications Studies. While at UCLA, Kelly discovered her voice as a writer, which led her to a career in writing for film and TV with her husband Robert McCall. After her mother’s death in 1997, Kelly pursued her craft through a less mainstream project – a one-woman show called Driven To Distraction. In 2001, Kelly stepped away from the family business to pursue her masters in Jungian Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. She studied mythology, Jungian psychology and the intersection of art and the sacred. Presently, Kelly hosts The Kelly Carlin Show on SiriusXM, and Waking from the American Dream on SModcast Network. Based on her current solo show, the memoir A Carlin Home Companion, will be published by St. Martin’s Press in 2015.

April 24, 2014 Burbank, Falcon Theatre is proud to present Troubadour Theater Company’s ABBAMEMNON, directed by Matt Walker. Join us for a hysterical musical reimagining of the classic Greek tragedy Agamemnon, the sordid story of seduction and scheming, with the sweet Swedish sounds of the Seventies. In this irreverent Dancing Queen-filled romp, the Ovation Award-winning Troubadour Theater Company brings the noise, the funk, and the dysfunctional-family vibe to this masterwork of the Greek canon. Why does Cassandra’s S.O.S. plea to Take a Chance on Me fall on the deaf ears of the Elder Chorus? Will Clytemnestra’s plan to kill Agamemnon come to fruition and will The Winner Take All? Will the Watchman ever get to sleep and say I Have a Dream? Will Aegisthus be able to pronounce his own name at Waterloo? Bloody and bold, fierce and funny, this production by the masters of mayhem is sure to entertain and enlighten.

Billy & Ray
Written by Mike Bencivenga
Directed by Garry Marshall

Falcon Theatre Has Extended The World Premiere Of Billy And Ray

Falcon Theatre Has Extended The World Premiere Of Billy And Ray / Anything L.A.

Extended for three performances:
May 3, 4 & 5

April 16, 2013 Burbank, Falcon Theatre has extended the world premiere of Billy & Ray through May 5. Written by Mike Bencivenga and directed by Garry Marshall, the play tells the incredible true story of how Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler wrote the screenplay for Double Indemnity, invented film noir and nearly killed each other in the process. Set in Hollywood in the 1940’s, it’s a hilarious journey through a war of creativity between two brilliant and infuriating men who battled the censors, and each other, to create a motion picture classic.

“This delicious world premiere…paints such a vivid, suspenseful portrait of the creation of the movie that may have invented film noir that it could even launch its own new genre.” –LA Times

“As Wilder, Kevin Blake is a force of nature…O’Hagan is a perfect foil for Blake, his Chandler as stoically private and insulated from the world …Marshall directs with a steady, knowing hand…the most fascinating aspect of Billy & Ray is Bencivenga’s smart, knowing script.” –Backstage

“Handsomely staged and snappily paced by director Garry Marshall.”
LA Weekly

“[Kevin Blake’s] elfin, manic energy is persuasive and well-calibrated. Ali Spuck has gams for days and terrific timing. Anthony Starke hits all the right notes as the studio exec. O’Hagan has the timing and patience to play the straight man, but expertly seizes the moment when Chandler gets a couple of opportunities to one-up Wilder.”
– StageandCinema.com

“WOW! Just about as splendid a season ender as any theater could wish for. Proving that Garry Marshall (and his Falcon Theatre) are still at the top of their game, Billy & Ray is manna from film buffs’ heaven.” –StageSceneLA

How far would you go to get that dream job? Just what would you be willing to do? Four corporate warriors come together in one room to compete for one senior management position using “The Grönholm Method,” a system meant to separate the weak from the strong. But the weak may not be as weak as they appear. A wicked comedy that feels like a thriller, it’s a fool’s game of betrayals, reversals and manipulations that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
