Never has an event worked SO HARD to remove every single shred of joy out of Burt Bacharach's extensive groovy fun witty songs. The director/musical arranger should be taken out into the back alley and put out of his misery. Turning Burt's jolly ironic sixties songs about self-effacing heartbreak into gothic unrecognizable arias, over blown and over performed like Kurt Weill on Xanex, was astounding. THE worst show I have seen in years. And the first act was a boring, uninvolving, derivative musical play with exceptionally bland bad songs. This event was shocking.

About the Ticket Supplier: Southland Theatre Artists Goodwill Event (S.T.A.G.E.)
Back in 1984, at a time of mass fear and confusion about AIDS, a small group of friends in the Los Angeles theatre community came together in an effort to combat the devastating impact the disease was having on their friends and loved ones. Actor/writer/director Michael Kearns and the late writer/director James Carroll Pickett approached producer Susan Obrow and accomplished director David Galligan to create the first Southland Theatre Artists Goodwill Event (S.T.A.G.E.). Each S.T.A.G.E. benefit is a unique way for the Los Angeles performing arts community to raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS service agencies, such as AIDS Project Los Angeles, while demonstrating love and support for those living with and affected by the disease. Over the past 25 years, S.T.A.G.E. productions have raised more than $5 million dollars to support HIV/AIDS charities throughout Southern California. 25 Years and Still Persevering!
