One of our, and your, favorite local stars of both the musical and straight (as it were) stage is the brassy, funny, rangy Johanna Carlisle. And Saturday night, May 8 (tomorrow), is a perfect time to help make it a happy Mother's Day for this working mom whose son needs orthodontia, which don't come cheap.
A great friend of the local theater community has gathered a handful of sweet talent to serenade his Glendale back yard during "Broadway Under the Stars," with proceeds to benefit Carlisle's family. It's all okay with the neighbors and the po-po, so throw a blanket, cushion, or lawn chair in the car, bring what you can donate (a suggested $5 minimum), and relax with some musical theater favorites on what should still be a decent evening, weather-wise.
There'll also be refreshments, candles, and other tchotchkes on sale for the cause. The entertainment starts at 7 p.m. Contact [email protected] for the address and directions to the house (it's near 35th Avenue and Union Hills Drive). Just in case you don't hear back in time and you're my Facebook friend, I know you're cool, so just hit me there for the event deets.
