LA Theater Review

Unbuttoned

  • Share:

At the end of Andreas Beckett's musical solo show, from backstage he reemerges sporting a Bavarian alpine hat, and then dons a baseball cap as he sings "God Bless America." It's a fitting finale to this whirlwind tour of a life that started in a farming community at the foot of the Bavarian Alps and wound up in America steeped in show business. Beckett spends a lot of time discussing numerous romantic escapades, which aren't always interesting, but he makes up for that with crackling spontaneity and humor. He can sing—really well—and receives splendid piano accompaniment by Mikael Oganesian. Mitzie Welch directs.

Lounge Theater, 6201 Santa Monica Blvd., L.A.; Mon, Fri., Sat., 8 p.m., Sun., 2 p.m., thru. June 27.
