“Scene in LA” April 2021 by Steve Zall and Sid Fish

Covid-19 vaccinations will be available to everyone who wants one starting April 15, which will certainly help us along on the road to recovery, although it will still be some time before we see live theatre returning to local venues. Case rates are still high but seem to be on a steady decline overall, and we are seeing gradual reopening in other sectors such as theme parks and movie theaters. The state is also constantly re-evaluating their guidelines and we could see live theater approved anytime at limited audience capacity, so keep following the local news to find out if anything changes.
A few brave theaters are already offering live performances:

“The Ghosts of Mary Lincoln” an evening of blood, madness and murder. There are tales of White House séances, presidential grave robbers, warnings from the undead, and that fateful night at Ford’s Theatre. The widow Lincoln has been freed from the asylum! Tom Dugan in a solo performance depicts an array of incidents and characters.
Written by Tom Dugan and directed by Shelby Sykes, it runs April 2 through May 1 at Dugan’s Backyard Playhouse in Woodland Hills. Physical distancing will be observed. Out of necessity, the audience will be strictly limited in size. Hand sanitizers will be readily be available, Outdoor fans will be in use and audience members will be required to wear masks. For tickets email:

“Little Women” will be presented as the grand re-opening production of the Glendale Centre Theatre in Glendale on dates to be announced soon. The City of Glendale has notified the theatre that they may reopen at limited capacity to ensure social distancing and patrons will be required to wear facemasks and be subject to temperature testing to ensure the safety of all guests.

The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter every day now, but until we finally reach the other side of this pandemic, we encourage everyone to continue to stay safe by wearing a facemask and practicing proper social distancing whenever you are outside in public, and always when required by a place of business.
Our warmest wishes go out to all of our readers as we all continue to navigate the turbulent waters of this ever-changing world we live in! We also want to send out a very special thanks to our Public Relations representatives who supply us with this great information, and to our editors who continue to publish these columns.
