TROUBIES: A CHRISTMAS CAROLE KING
Two weeks ago, as is my annual tradition, I went to see the TROUBADOUR THEATER COMPANY continue its 25th Silver anniversary season (bringing Los Angeles audiences a quarter century of mayhem!), with their 18th holiday offering, A CHRISTMAS CAROLE KING, featuring musical direction by Derrick Finely choreography by Matt Walker, Suzanne Jolie Narbonne and Luis "L.T." Martinez, and adapted & directed by Matt Walker. For their latest zany romp, The Troubies combined the soulful sounds of songstress Carole King with Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" - and the result was SO FAR AWAY from what you'd expect! Did Ebenezer Scrooge wake up ONE FINE DAY feeling like a NATURAL WOMAN and finally BELIEVE IN HUMANITY? Did he break his CHAINS and be shown what's truly BEAUTIFUL, and discover he had a CORAZON before IT'S TOO LATE, BABY? Did Tiny Tim go UP ON THE ROOF and ask, WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW? This December do the LOCOMOTION, (or the NoHo Metro) to the El Portal Theatre for many happy tidings of comfort and joy. Prepare for the rockin' sounds of the Troubadorchestra to make you FEEL THE EARTH MOVE UNDER YOUR FEET! Experience the Holi-daze like never before, because, this magical season, YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND in the Troubies!
