Robert Kovacik,    Lisa Vanderpump    & Christopher Gialanella attend fantastic  opening nite of Dear Evan Hansen at The Ahmanson Theater - it's definitely worth seeing!

Baz Luhrnan's Elvis is as great as Priscilla Presley said... I attended a screening at the luxurious Cinelounge on Sunset & enjoyed it immensely!  Austin Butler is really fantastic as Elvis!  My guest Y&R Star Kate Linder noted "I was fortunate to see Elvis at the Cinelounge.  It's a fabulous, clean & comfortable theater.  Don't miss Elvis - I rarely say this but it was so good that I definitely want to see it again". Me too, me too!  Plus their staff is very nice & their gourmet popcorn is delicious!  Thank you Phil Sokoloff PR for the invite! 

The Persian Gulf Restaurant ribbon cutting ceremony in Westwood was terrific...Award winning Chef Rana & husband/partner  Roozbeh Farahanipour

are gracious hosts & the food is delicious.   They offer a discount to military, police and first responders which is very kind.  Thank you Roger Neal PR for the invite!

Beautiful Actresses Brenda Maria, Jessica Ross & Rachele Royale were SceneAroundTown at the Persian Gulf opening

I'm looking forward to seeing the new play Clownfish at Theatre of Note in Hollywood.  My talented friend Jennifer Hugus is one of the producers - Congratulations Jen!  Www.theatreofnote.com   It's a dark comedy about mental illness, social stigmas & the misguided desire to be "normal" . It is written by Amy Dellagiarino & directed by Laura Stribling.

Beatles Legend Ringo Starr and beautiful wife Barbara Bach celebrated his 82nd birthday at noon with his annual Peace and Love Celebration for Global Peace beaming hope and good will globally.  Joining the celebration were friends and fellow musicians Langhorn Slim, Sawyer Fredericks, Richard Marx, Ed Begley, Jr. , Linda Perry,  Diane Warren, Roy Jr. and Alex Orbison plus Suzanne Lewis and Patti McGovern-Taylor.

All Starrs Steve Lukather, Edgar Winter, Colin Hay and Matt Sorum joined the loving festivities -  Happy Birthday Ringo and many healthy, happy returns - you & your mates from Liverpool have helped to make the world a much  better place!

The 4K Digital Restoration of George Stevens' GIANT was held at The Fine Arts Theater.  It was a fabulous evening which began with an interesting  Q&A hosted by A.M.P.A.S.'s Randy Haberkamp featuring Warner Brothers  restoration executives Daphne Deltz and George Feltenstein.   The classic film nominated for 10 Academy Awards looks terrific and stars legends Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Dean in his final role.   VIP guests included Priscilla Presley's lovely sister Michelle Beaulieu, her handsome son actor  Kash Hovey,  lovely actresses Kate Linder and  Diana Angelina and  dapper Tim Mendelson who oversees Elizabeth Taylor's estate.  The beautiful restoration was made possible by Martin Scorcese's Film Foundation, Steven Spielberg and TCM.  Thanks to Shawn Far, Fine Arts Theatre owner and Michael S. Hall, president and founder of Screening Services Group (theatre operator). It was a beautiful Classic Hollywood night long to be remembered -  thank you Steve Moyer PR. 

Kudos to the acting talent at Gloria Gifford's Conservatory -  I attended opening nite of their 3 one acts in Hollywood which was fantastic!   The riveting one-acts were Moony's Kid Don't Cry and Twenty-Seven Wagons Full of Cotton by my favorite Tennesse Williams and  Lou Gehrig Did Not Die of Cancer by Jason Miller. All the performers were STELLAR !!
