         Joan Rivers

Dear Readers, alas ... it is said that "sad loss" happens in "threes" - recently, we felt the pain of losing Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall ... and now Joan Rivers.  Then, to add to our sadness, for Joan Rivers  was a "comedy legend" - Broadway executives say, they won't dim-the-lights on Broadway marquees, to honor this performer who passed away this past week.

Joan Rivers earned a TONY Award Nomination in 1994, and appeared three times on Broadway!  It's ridiculous, that Broadway execs think, she does not merit the same 'tribute' that Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall, and other stars have received!  I just signed a Care2 Petition (below), asking Broadway to reconsider, and dim the lights for Joan Rivers.  Will you sign too?  Please cut-and-paste the LINK below, to reach the petition:

Friends, you will rarely hear this Editor say ... absolutely, DON'T MISS this or that show production.  However, the current Lamb's Players production of LES MISERABLES - extended now, through the end of October - is just one such RAVE!  Having seen LES MIZ originally on Broadway several times, on its subsequent national tour, and not to ignore, repeated local and West Coast productions - Lambs, dropping the expected majesty and grandness so frequently displayed in LES MIZ productions - Lamb's Players have fine-tuned their version to be the ecstasy of music excellence  - featuring all San Diego superb voices, along with a solid 6-member chorus (not the 50-plus singing chorus, one might anticipate), the finesse of Larry Meads direction, the musicality of their 8-piece show orchestra, and the smooth transitions from scene to scene, is a professional treat - seldom experienced!
