The Burger Palace Boys and the Pink Ladies take you for a joyride

rock-n-roll musical.  GREASE, at one time the longest-running
Broadway musical in history, gave birth to two revivals and a
beloved movie.  Songs include “Summer Lovin’,” “We Go
Together,” “Beauty School Dropout,” and “Greased Lightnin’,”
among many others.  You’ll go to the pajama party with Sandy and
Rizzo; pile into the trunk and ride to the drive-in movie with Danny,
Kenickie and the guys; and dance the “Hand Jive” in the High
School Gym.   So slick back your hair, grab your pom-poms and
let Cabrillo Music Theatre’s all-new production of GREASE send
you over the moon!

Theater review: Cabrillo's 'Grease'
a rockin', rollin' good time
http://www.vcstar.com/news/2013/apr/13/theater-review-cabrillos-
grease-rockin-rollin-good/
"The entire cast sparkles with sass and moves with ensemble
precision through the near nonstop dance movement that
distinguishes the musical. Director Barry Pearl
(who played Doody in the 1978 “Grease” film)
and choreographer Kelly Ward (who played Putzie in the film),
know the material and it shows."
                                                                                                                     Ventura County Star review

"Barry Pearl (Doody to John Travolta’s Danny and Olivia Newton-John’s Sandy)
directs for Cabrillo as only a Grease vet could, with choreographer Kelly Ward
(Putzie in the 1978 movie smash) insuring that cast members not yet born when
Grease went from stage to screen have their “Hand-Jive” and other 1950s dance
moves down pat."

"Under Pearl’s expert direction, Cabrillo’s cast of young and young-at-heart triple-
threats do bang-up work..."

"Cabrillo Music Theatre’s revisit to the perennially popular musical "Grease" is
skillfully directed by Barry Pearl, who was in the original Broadway cast. (I WASN'T)
His production yields an enjoyable dose of nostalgia and mirth."

Barry co-directed a brand new play entitled




















Harry and Ray are partners.  These guys have had each other’s back for decades.  They've
always met for breakfast at their favorite deli because Harry's a creature of habit.  However,
today Harry has chosen to meet at a rundown diner that is home to a sultry, young
waitress. When it becomes obvious to Ray that this isn't Harry's first time coming to this
joint he demands to know why they're there.  Harry explains that he wants Ray to help him
kill two men.  It's not the who, what, where or how that makes this seemingly easy job for
two old pros difficult, it's "why" Harry wants these two men dead that is so damned
disturbing.

A UNIQUE DRAMA about 2 hit men caught in the crossfire of their own personal purgatory

LA Times - "...a solid play... “Hawks” succeeds as a fun noir romp,
crisply executed and diverting. Co-directors O’Neil and Barry Pearl elicit
naturalistic performances from their fine cast that wouldn’t be
misplaced in an Arthur Miller revival. Reed and Kimbrough are
particularly excellent as aging tough guys who are the only constants in
each other’s lonely lives."


(Matt Kimbrough,
 Gary Lee Reed
         and
Adam Conger)
Nohoartsdistrict.com - "a very unique and bizarrely entertaining
production ...Cleverly and artistically directed by Barry Pearl and
Robert Vincent O’Neil...a wonderful performance by Gary Lee Reed
sincere and honest... Poignant and strong, yet deep with his
conviction is Matthew Kimbrough. Matthew and Gary have a good
bond and chemistry together and seem to have been friends forever.
Check out their wonderful production."
Stagehappening.com - "The combined talents of these two men
(Dennis A. Pratt & Robert Vincent O'Neil) plus the directing talents of
O’Neil and Barry Pearl, bring a focused Noir story typical of 60’s TV."

Tolucan Times - "Written brilliantly...this is a powerfully provocative
and mind-bending plot. From the shockingly effective opening
moment onward… the audience was mesmerized as the story
played out. An absolute must see, this offbeat production grabbed
our attention in the first 30 seconds, and never let go until the final
scene."

Valley Scene Magazine - "a fun, retro, comedic, Twilight Zone-ish
story...a gem in the rough..."
NIGHT HAWKS


A pair of aging partners in murder-for-pay meet in a rundown diner for breakfast (and
playwrights-only-know what else) in Dennis A. Pratt & Robert Vincent O’Neil’s
crackerjack comedy-mystery-suspense thriller Night Hawks, now getting a much
deserved extension at North Hollywood’s Crown City Theatre.


Co-directors Barry Pearl and O’Neil open Night Hawks with a bang, or actually about
nine of them if I counted those gun shots correctly before blood-red lights come up
on a diner strewn with bodies. Then, one by one, the corpses rise in slow-mo, and like
film spun in reverse, rewind us back in time to the fateful early morning that sets
events in motion.








Veteran hit man Harry (Gary Lee Reed) is Felix to Ray’s (Matthew Kimbrough) Oscar,
though we don’t immediately learn the reason for this umpteenth meeting in the
killers’ thirty-year odd-couple partnership.

Why, we wonder, is this morning’s get-together not taking place in the pair’s usual
deli of choice, but instead in the crummiest wreck of a diner you could possibly
imagine, a diner so ratty that nebbishy, germaphobic Harry disinfects his and Ray’s
silverware before his considerably less couth, barrel-chested lug of a partner arrives
with a “What the fuck are we doing here?” expression on his weathered face.

The diner’s young but already downtrodden waitress Sadie (Katherine Malak) brings
each man his coffee, and if her psychic skills seem surprisingly well honed (she
correctly surmises decaf for Harry and regular for Ray), they pale in comparison to
Harry’s Holmesian deductive powers when accurately describing Sadie’s miserable
existence down to the slightest detail. (With a life like Sadie’s, it’s no wonder the
mouthy waitress has learned to give as good as she gets.)

Harry’s reason for summoning Ray to this particular dinner does get revealed in good
time, but you’re not going to get it from me, this reviewer having no intention of giving
away what Night Hawks has in store over the course of its frequently laugh-out-loud,
even more often profanity-laced, suspense-charged hour-and-a-half (plus
intermission).








Suffice it to add that playwrights Pratt and O’Neil end Act One with the sudden arrival
of a younger, edgier version of Harry and Ray (Adam Conger as Jimmy and Jad Mager
as Raz), signaling even more fireworks to come once Act Two gets under way.

Under Pearl’s and O’Neil’s inspired direction, it’s hard to imagine a finer pair of
performances than the masterful work being done by Reed and Kimbrough, stage and
screen vets who make us believe in the lifetime they’ve spent together taking lives for
cash. Conger and Mager are terrific too as a much scarier version of Richie
Cunningham (in punk-next-door mode) and a bearded, tattooed Fonz-gone-bad,
neither of whom would you want to meet up with in a dark alley or even a well-lit
street. Finally, there’s Malak’s revelatory performance as Sadie, stunning, three-
dimensional dramatic work by one of L.A.’s most sensational musical theater triple-
threats.

On the heels of her terrific set for The Theatricians’ current production of Kimberly
Akimbo, scenic designer Madison Orgill has come up with one of the best diner sets I’
ve seen, and by far the shabbiest (aided and abetted by Joanne McGee’s pitch-perfect
props). Gary Lamb and Zad Potter’s lighting design is as striking as it gets, as is Pearl
and Mark Duggar’s dramatically pulsating sound design. Costume designer Tanya
Apuya has given each character a just-right outfit that suits his or her personality and
station in life to a T.

Serving in multiple capacities are stage manager Potter, technical director Lamb, and
master carpenter Reed. Night Hawks is produced for Crown City Theatre by William A.
Reilly, Kimberly Bullock, McGee, Lamb, Matthew J. Williamson, and Ben Rovner.

The latest hit from one of North Hollywood’s premier 99-seat-plan companies, Night
Hawks is guaranteed to grab you from its dramatically cinematic opening to its
humdinger of a Rod-Serling-meets-a-certain-Bill-Murray-flick climax.
