(Community Matters) what a treat watching American Fiesta seated next to my husband and in the company of good friends: Molly & Peter Benson and Agapi Stassinopoulos. Before the show we spent time with the Colony’s artistic director Barbara Beckley (in photo with Steven) and the production’s design team: David Potts (scene design), Jared A. Sayeg (lighting design), Kate Bergh (costume design) and Dave Mickey (sound).
Didn’t get to meet the actor (Larry Cedar) and director (David Rose) until after the show when my blackberry had died so missed photos. The audience laughed a lot, gave the performance a standing ovation and were loving on Steven after the show. Larry gave a performance more in the genre of Steven’s Austin production – storytelling, witty. Wouldn’t have minded a bit more energy during the performance – in the sound, Larry’s voice & movement; but our guests didn’t notice its absence. Larry performed Leon with a sassy accent and sassy hips. I didn’t mind; it made me laugh. We loved the show and our long weekend in LA. We want to spend more time in LA – we love the energy, the neighborhoods, their beaches and the weather.
