The Circus is in Town – Permanently
Cirque du Soleil has come and parked its wagons for a long, long stay at Hollywood’s Kodak Theater. Yes, the home of the Academy Awards Show now shares marquee space with a magical musical awe-inspiring homage to Hollywood and filmmaking as performed by the indescribable talents of Cirque du Soleil. IRIS (pronounced Eee-rees) is a big show to fill a big space at the Kodak Theater and does so beautifully for 7 shows a week. Want to see the show along with a special private tour of the Hollywood area? Just let us know.
Pacific Standard Time
If you believe that the L.A. art scene cannot measure up to that city on the other coast, make plans to visit as many of the galleries, museums and other cultural institutions participating in this groundbreaking collaboration that explores the history and magnificence of art produced in southern California. There are too many exhibitions and events to even begin to list that are available between now and the end of April. Visit the website to learn more about where to go and what to see as you learn why so many east coast artists have made their way to our Pacific shore to pursue their creative visions. Art tours, yes, we can do that.
Walk of Fame Story
Such a great tour we had and very different for me. Instead of driving our own luxury conversion van I found myself in Beverly Hills at the wheel of the guest’s own late model Cadillac Escalade. This is called a Step-On tour as I was “stepping onto” another vehicle. I still had my professional digital SLR camera with me and a cooler loaded with snacks and drinks. Heading for Hollywood we had a date with the Walk of Fame. Today (November 1st) was John Lasseter’s turn to be honored with a star right in front of the El Capitan Theater where so many of his animated films (Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Cars) had charmed countless audiences. We saw Owen Wilson, Randy Newman and Bonnie Hunt who were all participating in the ceremony. I had a fun time and even more important so did the family I was showing around.
