SONDHEIM’S FOLLIES

FOLLIES—a psychological, philosophical memory play with showstoppers (“Broadway Baby,” “Who’s That Woman,” “Losing My Mind,” and the trouper’s biographical tour de force “I’m Still Here”)—is Sondheim at zenith, brilliantly staged in its current London revival by director Dominic Cooke, and available to Los Angeles audiences via a series of National Theatre Live screenings presented at UCLA […]

About

"PARIS LA is born of shared perspectives. It’s a project, like a love story, that comes from the feeling of being in one place, thinking about another. A place between two cities, between scenes, between people, that exists only in the space of our imagination. In Paris, dreaming of the Pacific. Speaking French in LA. And it’s as true as a clear blue sky above us."—Dorothée Perret, Founder Editor (Paris, November 9, 2008)

SIMON BIRCH’S 14TH FACTORY

My favorite attraction at the old-school, long-gone amusement park of my childhood was Aladdin’s Castle, a dimly lit wonderland of tilted floors, collapsing stairways, and mirrored mazes. In 2017, just north of the L.A River, an art funhouse has moved into a repurposed factory in Lincoln Heights. Conceived by British-born, Hong Kong-based artist Simon Birch, […]

HEROES: DAVID BOWIE AND BERLIN

David Bowie moved to Berlin in late 1976 and stayed—on and off—for about two years. He recorded 32 songs for the “Berlin triptych”—Low, Heroes, and Lodger—but none of this dovetails too neatly: Low was started at Château d’Hérouville (“Honky Château”), outside Paris, and Lodger was recorded in Montreux. Only Heroes was made at Hansa Studios […]
