Editors Note

Dear Readers ... With all the requests we have received over the past 4 years , from  our  BRAVO SD AWARDS  nominees, theatre venues, and our SD Theatre Reviews readership,  it has been finally decided to go from our annual Thanksgiving week presentation of the year's BSDA winners, to a more traditional calendar year - hence, this year's newly re-designed BRAVO SD Awards Photo-Op, will be held in January, 2016 (exact date soon to be announced), at the County Supervisors Administration Building, under our Honorary Chair Supervisor Dave Roberts.

 Speaking of Supervisor Dave Roberts, he is on the MOVE - as he launched his pre-election campaign to 100-plus friends and family (in the Arts Community), at the very lovely home of Phil Johnson and Seth Grosner, on Sunday, Nov 1st.  The Sunday afternoon T-Time Buffet (prepared by Seth), had colleagues and friends who have not seen each other in many 'moons' - kissing and embracing to re-new old friendships.
Supervisor 3rd District Dave Roberts

Genuinely enthused about Dave Roberts seeking to reach-out to the 'Arts Community'  in his pending 2016 campaign, much 'praise' was extended to Roberts, for his embracing the Arts Community, at every opportunity, in advance of his public official re-election announcement on Nov. 15th. 

Attending this Sunday afternoon event, included Cheli Mahamed (California Police Athletic Federation), Julie Sarno, Faye Wilson (Chair of SD Theatres, Inc.), Dale Stark (of the SD Film Association), Marvin & Renette Levine, Francine Cossinger, Esther Jane Paul (of the Children's Voice Inter'l), Bennett Peji (Center for Neighborhood Innovation), Esther Nahama, David Ellenstein (of the North County Theatre), Robert Lynn & Kleon Howe, and Gene Summ - to name but only a few, of the 650,000-plus constituents who revere the offices of Supervisor Dave Roberts ... one-stop shopping for the Arts!

"Hello San Diego!  Hello Dolly!

In conjunction with reviewer Cathy Carpenter's early-on  commentary on the Welk Theatre's HELLO DOLLY! (in this same issue), I wanted to express some additional commentary on this Welk hit show!  HELLO DOLLY! is the happiest 2-hours you are likely to spend in the theatre.  A 'smile'  is on your face throughout!
      Cynthia Ferrer  (as Dolly Levi)

As produced by Josh Carr, and brilliantly staged by Ray Limon, on this otherwise modest-sized Welk stage, the 12-dancers fly back-and-forth across the stage with considerable ease - the famed "Waiters Gallop" (above), is a hoot to watch!  HELLO DOLLY! is under the musical direction of Justin Gray, with excellent costume designs by Janet Pitcher, to accompany the scenic designs of Don Ertel (the Vandergelder interior shop alone, is especially striking and serviceable).

The every 'diva'  in HELLO DOLLY! history (ie: Carol Channing, Barbra Streisand, etc...) role of Dolly Levi, was in the very capable hands of Cynthia Ferrer - chasing after husband (#2) to be - Horace Vandergelder (played by PS Follies veteran Randy Doney), with Vandergelder shop employees Cornelius Hackl (Scott Arnold), and Barnaby Tucker (Andrew J. Koslow) rompin' through "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" and "Dancing".
Randy Doney                 

One of the finest voice in this HELLO DOLLY!, is that of Charlene Koepf (as Irene Malloy) on her singing of "Ribbons Down My Back" - and Bailey Sonner (as her giggling
shop  assistant).  

Director-Choreographer Ray Limon, continuously excels in staging big, complicated dance numbers on the Welk stage - no less so, then here with "Before The Parade Passes By", and of course, the highly anticipated show title song "Hello Dolly!" - with very handsome waiters and excellent dancers, they have a solid good time!

Playing through Nov 15th, this very enthusiastic cast ensemble in HELLO DOLLY!, is well-worth the drive up to the Escondido Welk Theatre ... and should not be missed!  Call for reservations at (888) 802-SHOW, or go online at their ... also, watch for their next Josh Carr production of MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS - on Nov. 20th thru Jan. 31st, 2016!
