‘Buyer & Cellar’ Premiers plus ‘The Beach Boys’ Tribute and Stolie at Incanto
The California Sun duo will present a tribute to ‘The Beach Boys and friends’ for one night only, Saturday, Dec. 2 at 7pm. Guy Schryer’s and Jamie Shear`s uncanny ability to listen to a record, determine how it’s put together, and then do it themselves is the key to their amazingly accurate performance of the iconic group. They will perform Beach Boys classics “Surfin’ USA”, “California Girls” and “Little Deuce Coupe” among others, as well as other hits of the era by various artists.
Hit stage comedy Buyer & Cellar opens for a limited run on Sunday, Dec. 3 at 7pm. Directed by Alain Perreault and starring César Bravo, it’s an outrageous comedy by Jonathan Tolins about the price of fame, the cost of things, and the oddest of odd jobs. Winner of the 2014–2015 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show, Tolins has concocted an irresistible one-man play about an underemployed actor who goes to work in Barbra Streisand’s Malibu, Calif., basement. “Hilarious! Beyond brilliant. This show will go down like butta!” — Entertainment Weekly. Actor César Bravo started his acting career in 2002 with El Grupo Municipal de Teatro de Puerto Vallarta. He later lived and worked as an actor in Mexico City where he starred in a television series called Al Final del Arcoiris. In 2014 Cesar co-founded Perro Bravo Productions along with director Alain Perreault. Past credits include Princesas Desesperadas and Equus.

Hailing from Chicago, Ill., she has been singing/performing live music on guitar and piano for more than 15 years, playing at Millennium Park, Chicago Botanic Gardens, and at dozens of rock clubs and restaurants. She has toured the USA in support of her original music. She had a very successful run at Incanto last season, developing a considerable local following.

‘Greater Tuna’, starring Tracy Parks and Ron Spencer opened to rousing applause and is now playing through mid-January, 2018.
