Facebook the Musical
Yes, really. Thanks to Mashable for letting us know about this hilarious musical number. Check it out and see if you think it captured the essence of Facebook-checking madness.

Love Songs, A Musical Announces Cast
Chromolume Theatre has announced its next production, the world premiere of Love Songs, A Musical, with book, music & lyrics by Steven Cagan, directed by Kay Cole, featuring orchestrations and arrangements by Doug Walter and music direction by Richard Berent. The show runs June 21 – July 28 with opening set for Saturday, June 22 at 8pm. Filled with gorgeous songs and a timeless story, Love Songs follows the journey of six friends and colleagues through the vagaries of love and marriage. Jeremy is out of town, trying to get home in time for his nuptials to Gaby. Sarah, engaged to Ben for six years, can’t get him to commit. Longtime lovers Roy and Rose are happy just the way they are. The unexpected ways in which the three couples act and interact combine to achieve the the all too often, all too elusive, happy ending.

The cast will feature Eduardo Enrikez, Kurt Andrew Hansen, Jean Kauffman, Craig McEldowney, Jean Altadel Ruiz, and Sara J. Stuckey. The scenic and sound design are by James Esposito, lighting design is by Lynn Downey, and costume design is by Darby Gray. For tickets visit www.crtheatre.com or call (323) 205-1617. Chromolume Theatre at the Attic is located at 5429 W. Washington Blvd., Los Angeles, 90016.

Ben Fuller & Sara Collins
A Trio of Brimmer Street Theatre Fringe Events
Brimmer Street Theatre Company has announced three events set to be part of the 2013 Fringe Festival, performed consecutively on three Friday nights, June 14, 21, and 28 at the Lounge Theatre in Hollywood. First up on each Friday at 7:45 pm is True Hustle, a solo show in which Marie Lively shares the true story of how a naive Christian temp became a corporate smut queen for one of the most famous (and infamous) pornographers in town.

Next at 9:15 pm is I Could’ve Been Dancing ... A Magical Evening of Song and Laughs, in which Ben Fuller, along with Sara Collins, asks the age-old question, do you believe in magic? Do you ever find yourself gazing into the mirror, hopelessly searching for your spirit song? Audiences will need look no further, as Ben and Sara woo your wants and slap your senses as they serenade with a selection of songs and duets, filled with sharp banter and tongue-in-cheek interpretations. This isn’t your grandmother’s lounge act.

The evening concludes with Human Puppet at 10:30 pm, an experiment in interactive theatre that puts spectators in control of the performers and the action. Via radio remote, an audience member can guide the words and motions of a single actor, (David Jette and/or Jon Prescott) interacting with the environment and with the other performer, saying and doing things that no playwright could have imagined. Tickets for True Hustle and I Could’ve Been Dancing are available at www.hollywoodfringe.org for $15 each, or a three-show package (including Human Puppet, which if seen by itself is free) is available at www.BrimmerStreet.org for $20.The Lounge Theatre is located at 6201 Santa Monica Boulevard (at El Centro) in Hollywood.

The Sherwood Award Open for Applicants
Applications and information for the 2014 Sherwood Award are now up on the Center Theatre Group’s website at www.CenterTheatreGroup.org/Sherwood. CTG’s annual Richard E. Sherwood Award for emerging theatre artists is a $10,000 fund designed to nurture Los Angeles artists. The goal of the Award is to cultivate emerging artists of promise associated with performance in Los Angeles, and invite them to engage in a professional relationship with Center Theatre Group. Applicants should be dedicated to improving the future of their respective artistic fields, have demonstrated leadership, and be pushing existing boundaries. Artists are not limited by title, role or genre, but they must have a relationship to the art of performance. Two upcoming orientation dates will be held on June 17 and June 22. They are not mandatory, but will be very helpful in answering questions about the application process. Good luck!
