Okay. So, THE WOMEN has closed. But the laughter and memories have stayed. In fact, I think one of the seats in the theatre repeats Edith's lines whenever you sit in it. :)

A last round of applause to the entire cast, crew, and production team on an incredible run. Such talent. Hugs to all.

To the bargain shopper in us all ... just wanted to mention there are still a few discount tickets left on Goldstar for tomorrow night. And a few left on LA Stage Alliance. That leaves extra moola in your pocket for a drink. Or you know, whatever.

Alas, alas! We'll miss donning our wigs and stockings and gowns and sundries just as much (we presume) as we'll be missed! ;)

It's FRIDAY! Another weekend of shows is upon us. The hours tick by... almost like a taxi meter counting down instead of up. All leading to the moment we sit in our chairs in the dressing room, doing our hair and makeup. Slipping into someone else's clothes, and walk, and talk. And then- we begin THE WOMEN.

Total honesty. Isn't it fun to see your name in print!? :)

"HEATHER ALYSE BECKER shines" ... "ANNE LEYDEN conspires and dishes with delight" ... "Of special note is the performance of MARIA KRESS whose wordless conveying of surprise and hurt beautifully render Mary’s sad plight to an audience that’s otherwise laughing at the repartee."

“The Women” runs Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m., through June 9. Tickets range from $28 to $5 (students under 25 with I.D.). Tickets may be purchased by calling 323-851-7977 or online at www.theatrewest.org. Theatre West is located at 3333 Cahuenga Blvd. West, Los Angeles.

Noon Wednesday has arrived!

And thus passes another trivia-lottery. Ah, how we love to give things away! ;)

So, who plays Miriam Aarons in our fantastic production? And who played her in the 1939 film???

Why: REBECCA LANE, of course, and her predecessor, the firecracker PAULETTE GODDARD!

Congrats to the winner! We know you'll enjoy the vittles at the California Canteen, and keep your eyes on this page, all! A new trivia question MIGHT be coming your way soon.....

It's a Tuesday afternoon. Are you already day dreaming about the long weekend?

Well... just a reminder that you can get HALF PRICE tix to The Women at Theatre West via LA Stage Alliance. However, we do expect the savings to go towards roses you'll throw at our feet. ;-)

It's the Real Housewives of 1936! The Women has sex, gossip, marriage and romance. In short, everything that preoccupies the airwaves today. It was all upon the stage first.

Ah, the charmed life of hard-working actresses. Le sigh.

And in celebration of that--everyone who likes, shares, or guesses this trivia-raffle gets a chance at a gift certificate to the California Canteen Restaurant! It's DELISH!

So--here's the question! Which siren of the silver screen played Miriam Aarons in The Women (1939 film)?? AND--who plays her in OUR production at Theatre West??

You have until 12 Noon, Wednesday to guess, like and share....so hurry up! :)

What can we say--the reviews keep rolling in! We can't help it. We're fabulous. We'd say "sue us" to finish up the classic line...but you totes can't afford it, darling, so best just not.

Can you believe how DELICIOUS ArtsInLA.com thought we were??

(They also thought we were pretty and that we'd lost weight.)

Kudos to the ladies of The Women at Theatre West for this one!

CURTAIN UP!

And so the final of our trivia-raffles (for the pre-run, anyway....) is OVER!

Congratulations to the winner--to be messaged after the performance, thank you muchly--of the Spoonful Restaurant gift certificate, the 2 comp. tickets, and the DVD of The Women (1939 film)! You're going to lord it over others, we hope!

..we're confident you will.

So, without further ado...WHO SAID IT???

“As if any woman needed to go to a psychoanalyst to find out she can’t trust women.”

A: Our protagonist, the effervescent MARY HAINES! Played by Goddess Maria Kress!

Break legs, all! And remember: a little Jungle Red goes a LONG way! :)

ACK! Nearly time to go and put our glamorous faces on! (Not that we're not always glamorous, but occasionally, we're especially gorgeous, just for opening night. And the occasional wet luncheon.... Look, it's always 1700 hours somewhere, darlings.)

Anyway--what that means, is you have only another 9 HOURS to answer our final pre-show trivia-raffle and win some fabulous prizes!

So like, share, and guess loves! Before the curtain rises....and closes on this opportunity!

See you in Church.

GOOD LUCK!
