See Bruce Vilanch In The New Musical “Still Waiting In The Wings” – Now Playing The Festival Circuit

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018


Still Waiting follows the trials and triumphs of a ragtag team of actors waiting tables in Times Square at The Cafe’ Broadway. While dreaming of the glow of the footlights next door, the reality of slinging hash under florescent lights mixes sweet aspirations with bitter drama. The performers of New York City are as varied as it’s inhabitants: the diva, the theatre queen, the soap star, and even a couple of strippers thrown in for good measure! There’s no people like show people (Thank God), and there’s no telling what can happen when they’re pitted against each other. Read More

Friday, March 2nd, 2018

The Los Angeles Philharmonic and The Industry drew acclaim last year for their co-production of Young Caesar, Lou Harrison’s depiction of Caesar’s love for another man. The production was directed by Yuval Sharon, The Industry’s founder/director, and the LA Phil’s Artist-Collaborator. The digital album was recorded live with the LA Phil New Music Group at Walt Disney Concert Hall and will be digitally released February 2, 2018, on The Industry Records.

Mark Swed of the Los Angeles Times described the performance: “Sharon, in conjunction with his opera company, The Industry, mounted a fanciful, visually stunning, endearingly mercurial, marginally risqué, momentarily over-the-top and ultimately touching production. The LA Phil New Music Group, conducted by Marc Lowenstein in the final Green Umbrella program of the season, was sensational, revealing layer upon layer of sheer musical gorgeousness capable, from the first bars, of lifting the spirits.” Read More

An unlikely candidate for a franchise, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, as goofy as it is, spawned three sequels, a cartoon series, a video game, and a toy line during the 1980s and 1990s. Long-since dormant, it’s wild to think that at one time an amateur spoof movie with a budget of less than $100,000 had the potential for other things. Shepherded by director John DeBello and writers and producers Stephen Peace and Costa Dillon, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes isn’t necessarily a film that you’d try and defend as some kind of a masterpiece that’s been misunderstood. No, even its creators know exactly what it is, but they, like many other people, embrace it and continue to wave its flag nearly 40 years after its initial release. Read More

Oscar funnyman to show: play up envelope mess, not harassers
February 15, 2018

LOS ANGELES — Put comedy writer Bruce Vilanch on the spot by asking if he has a political gag suitable for the Oscars, and he makes a game try.

“There’s probably a joke in Trump buying three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri,” Vilanch said, “because that’s all he does is publicize himself. So it seems to me you have a nice, clean shot on the ninth hole.”

He doesn’t have to sweat polishing the riff on best-picture nominee “Three Billboards.” While he’s crafted one-liners for hosts and presenters for 23 Oscar shows, he’ll be watching comfortably at home and with Koosh balls at the ready. Read More
