    On Theater: Artistic director takes final bow
    The Laguna Playhouse is gearing up to celebrate its 90th (that's right, 90th) season in 2010-11, but somehow it won't be quite the same as the past 20. Andrew Barnicle, the playhouse's popular and highly skilled artistic director, who has held the...

    Playing desert golf courses at budget rates
    "Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun." To that, lyricist Noel Coward could have added bargain-seeking golfers. If you thought Las Vegas hotel prices dropped when the mercury climbs skyward, wait until you see the green fees at nearby courses....

    On Theater: Spurned lovers ignite playhouse
    Noel Coward's "Private Lives," written in 1930, is a decade younger than the Laguna Playhouse, at which this classic comedy is being joyously revived with its verbal barbs flying as fast as the props the actors hurl at one another. Coward defined...
  • On Theater: Noel Coward's 'Hay Fever' is at WCT

    On Theater: Noel Coward's 'Hay Fever' is at WCT
    If there ever were such a thing as a truly symmetrical play, Noel Coward discovered it back in 1925 when he wrote the whimsical but witty comedy "Hay Fever." This hastily written (Coward penned it in three days) satire — inspired by some of the...
  • On Theater: 'Blithe Spirit' at Costa Mesa Playhouse

    When he was a child, Noel Coward's mother took him to a succession of mediums and psychics, an experience he used to create one of his most enduring stage comedies. "Blithe Spirit" — which Coward reportedly took five days to create — is...
