Chelsea Handler -- the irreverent host of the late night talk show Chelsea Lately and author of books like My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang and Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea -- sits down to discuss her latest book with Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow. An absurd and hilarious collection of travel essays, Uganda Be Kidding Me finds Handler detailing her exploits while on safari in Africa, attempting to kayak in the Bahamas and escaping from a German hospital on crutches. Following the conversation with Paltrow (which is sure to be filled with over-the-top tales, questionable travel tips and answers to pressing questions), Handler will be signing copies of her book.

Subject matter seemed difficult to convey in a convincing, non-melodramatic way. It was also overtly moralizing which did not appeal to me. The dance sequences were enjoyable. The production moved along at a decent pace. I did enjoy the venue.
Frost and Fire, a new multimedia music theater production presented by Theatre Bethune, combines a variety of actors, dancers, and digital artists in a performance adaptation of novelist Ray Bradbury’s appropriately titled short story. The futuristic tale takes place in the year 5002 on a foreign planet where a sub-culture of humans rise to existence and are condemned to a life cycle of eight days. Main characters Sim and Lyte put their short existence in danger as they search for the secret to the society’s escape from their inevitable fate.
Their story is told through the words of Mr. Bradbury and the beautifully staged and choreographed sequences of director/choreographer Zina Bethune. Accompanied by the original score of composer Zeljko Marasovich, with the graphics and video artistry of Michael Masucci, and special video guest artists Michael York and Lee Meriwether, the production is an entryway to the “sublime” (LA Weekly).
