‘Hair’ is still growing

Last week I had the pleasure of re-experiencing "Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical" at the little El Centro Theatre in Hollywood.

Fair-weather fandom an easy win

My friends, I have joined the parade, jumped on the bandwagon and swallowed at least a spoonful of the Kool-Aid. I now call myself a "Kings fan" – you know, for the next few days, anyway.

Garden of the future

Did you know that more than 70 percent of your home's water use is in the yard and garden? Yup, that's a fact, according the folks at the Castaic Lake Water Agency.

Thoroughly comfortable ‘Millie’

"Thoroughly Modern Millie" opened at the Canyon Theatre Guild last Saturday night with both the title and feel of a classic that you've seen many times - except that maybe you haven't. Though the Academy Award-winning movie of that title, starring Julie Andrews, Mary Tyler Moore and Carol Channing, has been around since 1967, I'd never seen the much more recent, Tony Award-winning stage play (and, most likely, you haven't either). Thus, things weren't so ingrained in my head that I felt I could sing along with the cast. (This was probably a good thing for ...

Find the right lawn to love

When it comes to usability and comfort in your yard, there is nothing like a cool, green lawn. And, even in these times of water conservation, a lawn can be a viable option - if you choose the right type of grass and care for it properly.

Songs of the ‘Trailer Park’

Now, I don't know how the folks in the town of Starke might feel about it ... or the folks in Florida as a whole ... or folks who live in "trailer parks" across our great nation, for that matter. But I really don't care, because the audience at the REP's opening of "The Great American Trailer Park Musical," myself included, found the goings-on at the Armadillo Acres trailer park a real hoot.
