Lewis Black: The Rant is Due in Medford, March 9


Craterian Theater at the Collier Center presents Lewis Black: The Rant is Due

Lewis Black

Lewis Black

Lewis Black is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. His live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment.

Lewis yells so you don’t have to. A passionate performer who is more cranked-off optimist than mean-spirited curmudgeon, Lewis is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world. His  2011 Craterian appearance was a sellout…don’t miss out on his 2014 visit.

Oregon Cabaret Theatre presents “Double Trouble” Feb-Mar


Oregon Cabaret Theatre “Double Trouble”

Oregon Cabaret Theatre

Oregon Cabaret Theatre

Set in Hollywood in the early 1940s, the show features Jimmy & Bobby Martin, a pair of song-writing brothers summoned to a major movie studio and given the golden opportunity to write a song for the movies…on the double. Their efforts are interrupted by wacky characters including the boorish studio boss, an ancient sound engineer, an effete director, a sleazy agent and a buxom, scheming screen siren – all played by the same two singing, dancing, piano-playing actors in a rambunctious musical tour-de-farce written by Bob and Jim Walton.

The Oregon Cabaret Theatre is a favorite musical venue for both visitors and locals alike. If you’re in the mood for a tuneful campy romp, go to the Cabaret for dining and entertainment.  Open on Monday nights.
February 7 – March 30
Previews February 5 & 6
Performances Thursday – Sunday @ 8:00
Sunday Brunch matinees @ 1:00

Richard III Car Park Jokes


Richard III

Richard III

How can one resist all the Richard III car park jokes?

My friend and Shakespeare scholar Mike Jensen finds them … I just share them.

This one I related to. I am so glad for the remote key fob, I am forever locating my car via the remote beep.

The Chipper Experience! at the Craterian


The Chipper Experience!

Chipper Experience!

Chipper Experience!

Last seen as the emcee and star of “Blink,” the irrepressible, carrot-topped Chipper Lowell returns for an evening of breathtaking illusion and side-splitting comedy.

Chipper’s fast-paced, fun-filled, family-friendly show features non-stop one-liners, ad libs and sight gags, in addition to a lot of how-did-he-do-that legerdemain. Chipper is a true original and hilarious comedian.

As one critic exclaimed, “Thank goodness the floor of the theater was clean, because I spent most of the night rolling in the aisles!”

Nunset Blvd at the Craterian


Nunset Blvd

Dan Goggin’s “Nunset Blvd.”

Dan Goggin’s Nunset Blvd, starring Cindy William.

This final installment in the Nunsense franchise — perhaps the most successful series in theater history — stars Cindy Williams, better known as “Shirley” to fans of the long-running TV sitcom Laverne and Shirley.

In Nunset Boulevard, the Little Sisters of Hoboken are thrilled to be invited to sing at the Hollywood Bowl — until they discover that the venue is actually the Hollywood Bowl-a-Rama Bowling Alley. Hijinks, both comical and musical, of course ensue.

Go here for more information on the nunsensical (sorry couldn’t resist) revue.

Rock of Ages, musical comedy at the Craterian


Rock of Ages, a musical comedy

Rock of Ages, a musical comedy

Rock of Ages” a musical comedy.

The critics call it “cheerfully cheesy,” “splendidly silly” and “insanely fun.” They hail it as a “frenzied, foot-stomping sexy smash.”
And really, who could resist a big Broadway musical built around such classic ‘80s rock hits as “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” and “I Want to Know What Love Is”?
Featuring big egos, big guitar solos, and even bigger hair, Rock of Ages will have you both laughing and rocking — often at the same time!
Go here for more information on this smashing Broadway musical.
