Orange County Theatre Reviews

Instead of an end of the year magazine. We decided to try something a little bit different this year. A live theatre podcast where we interview local theatre playwrights and directors from the area and get their unique perspectives on their plays this year and the theatre scene in 2018.

Playwrights and Directors – 

Paul Rush is a founder of the Sixty-six Theater Co, located at the historic Marilyn Monroe Theatre in West Hollywood. He fell in love with theater while studying at the University of Maine. His disciplined and heartfelt approach he attributes to his time in the woods of Maine and in his service in the U.S. Air Force. He is dedicated to engaging audiences with honest and thought-provoking theater. He has produced numerous films and theater on both East and West coasts. A quote from Henry David Thoreau has been present throughout his life, ‘Do what you love. Know your own bone; gnaw at it, bury it, unearth it, and gnaw it still.’

Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm is a Los Angeles-based playwright, book writer, lyricist, screenwriter, and actor. He’s had over 170 productions of his plays and musicals staged in four countries. His play WOUNDED just premiered Off-Broadway at the Soho Playhouse as part of the “Fringe Encore Series” (chosen from thousands of Fringe shows from all over the world). He’s won and placed for over twenty playwriting awards, including being a Finalist for the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center National Playwrights Conference and the David Ross Fetzer Foundation for Emerging Artists Grant.
