It's diva vs. diva when Hollywood and Broadway: Gloria & Tallulah Talk saunters to the stage of L.A.'s Teatro De La O. This sassy period piece imagines a head-to-head clash between Gloria Swanson and Tallulah Bankhead, two iconic sirens of stage and screen. Set in 1951 at New York City's famed Hotel Astor, the legendary stars are set to receive the prestigious Page One Award for Entertainment. By then, Swanson had blown audiences away with her role as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard, while the Tony-nominated Bankhead had taken Broadway by storm and starred in Hitchcock's Lifeboat. Both had elegance, élan and ego to spare, so expect fireworks when Hollywood and Broadway puts the larger-than-life characters in a room together. With a snooping butler and an overeager hotel clerk popping up to fan the flames, mayhem and lunacy prevail in this world-premiere comedy from L.A.-based fashion designer Octavio Carlin.

It was quite possibly one of the best productions of RENT that I've seen, and mind you, I've seen about 30+ different productions of it. The cast was absolutely stellar!! The gentleman who played Collins was just mind blowing! Maureen and Mimi were pretty amazing as well. The lovely young lady who sang the Seasons of Love solo, WOW!!! And the entire cast, I couldn't ask for a better group of talent! I just LOVED their unique La Vie Boheme choreography!
The reason for the 4- versus 5-stars was the sound system. Some mikes were better than others. In many scenes Maureen and Angel's mikes were so weak, they were completely overpowered by the band. Which was unfortunate because this happened during some of the more powerful scenes (I'll Cover You, Goodbye Love, Take Me, etc). Can someone please do something about this?
I'm seeing it again this Saturday and am really hoping this situation is rectified. Otherwise, excellent production!! Kudos!!
