FROM CAROLINE’S PAGE Joel McHale is one of the busiest actors in the business right now. He is perhaps best known for his starring role on the hit comedy series “Community,” which recently wrapped its sixth season on Yahoo after five seasons on NBC. He will next be seen on Fox’s revival of “The X-Files,” where he will play a conservative news anchor. McHale starred as Robin Williams’ son in A Merry Friggin’ Christmas and was seen in the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced supernatural thriller Deliver Us From Evil. He also appeared in the Warner Bros’ romantic comedyBlended alongside Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. His additional film credits include Seth MacFarlane’s comedy smash TED, What’s Your Number?, The Big Year, Spy Kids: All The Time in The World, and The Informant. In 2014, he hosted the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington D.C., and recently hosted the 2015 ESPYS on ABC. McHale also performs his stand-up act around the country to sold-out audiences. Born in Rome and raised in Seattle, Washington, McHale was a history major at the University of Washington where he also was a member of their championship football team. He received his Master’s of Fine Arts from UW’s Actor’s Training Program. McHale lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two sons.

FROM WEBSITE Arguably, St. Ann’s Warehouse is the only NY theater capable of staging Benedict Andrews’ maverick production of A Streetcar Named Desire, featuring Gillian Anderson, Ben Foster, Corey Johnson and Vanessa Kirby. With its transparent, revolving set, all conversations are overheard, there’s nowhere to hide and the ensuing tragedy purposefully spins toward its inevitable last line. The New York Times called the production “a wounding portrait of communal loss.” This American Premiere marks the first collaboration between St. Ann’s Warehouse and London’s Young Vic.
“Ms. Anderson is at her very best in Benedict Andrews’ ferocious new production of Tennessee Williams’ immortal play…
[Ben Foster is] the first Stanley I have come across to erase memories of the part’s stage and screen originator, Marlon Brando…less about the character’s pectorals and more about his battered pride”

If you have not met Keaton yet, you are in for a treat. You may have seen Keaton on teh Today show playing guitar with David Duchovny on May 12, morning before th infamous Cutting Room Concert. Many Duchovniacs have become Keaton Simons fans over the past few years. I met Keaton and his Mom Tuesday. Laurice had met Keaton once before. A true delight on and off stage!!!
FROM TICKETFLY: The Los Angeles Times described the voice of their native son, blues/rock guitarist, singer and songwriter Keaton Simons, as having a “lived-in quality that will echo in our minds and hearts for years to come.” Anyone who’s seen Keaton perform live knows why the crowd erupts when he picks up a guitar from his arsenal on stage (usually consisting of a customized DeTemple Stellacasta, fretless guitar, baritone and acoustic). Premier Guitar magazine has welcomed Keaton as a guest guitar teacher on their website and says, “Simons can play.” In addition, Keaton has played a role in the hip hop world as a writer, musical director, singer, bassist and guitarist with notable acts like Snoop Dogg, Gnarls Barkley, Tre Hardson of The Pharcyde and underground hip hop legend Medusa. He’s also performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Last Call with Carson Daly and most recently, The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Keaton’s music is regularly placed in feature films and television shows, including Sons of Anarchy, Private Practice, NCIS and Numb3rs.
