Between the heights of global fame and the deep trenches of total obscurity, there is a land of half-familiar faces, authentic talents and outrageous stories. Now Don Reed, the celebrated actor, playwright and warm-up comic for The Tonight Show, reveals all about this mysterious country in his all-new solo show, Semi-Famous: Hollywood Hell Tales from the Middle. From having a panic attack auditioning for Spike Lee to almost being shot by the Secret Service, Reed's stories are as outrageous as they are true. Get a glimpse of Hollywood -- that heartless, heartbreaking and (very occasionally) heartwarming city -- during this tour de force from Reed, a two-time NAACP Theatre Award nominee (Best Actor and Best Playwright).

The part that dealt with music from India was fun and interesting. The piece by a young, new composer a nice idea, particularly since the composer was a young woman which made it even more modern and appealing. Unfortunately, the concert went on about 20 to 30 minutes too long as it began to get hot and folks began squirming and trickling out of the auditorium. The initial enjoyment began to dive into restless exhaustion. It would have worked better to cut out one of the pieces: perhaps the Beethoven piece which was nice but had no relationship (that was made apparent, at least) to the India theme. It just did not work to try to squeeze that extra number in on this particular night. If the concert had not gone on too long it would have been more enjoyable. I was exhausted by the time the concert ended which did not make for a good final impression. For this single reason, I would be hesitant to attend another symphony performance short of some very tempting incentives. Thanks.

It is not a good thing for me to say the P. Glass piece that started the concert was best at 10 minutes nor to say that the Shankar concerto that ended it is a very rarely heard novelty piece for the best of reasons...it's tedious. Why Beethoven's...continued
