LA Theater Review

Actor Under Fire

In his solo piece, directed by Anita Khanzadian, actor James Gleason tells us how he enlisted in the Air Force during the Vietnam War, was sent to the war zone and assigned to act in a touring production of Neil Simon's "The Star-Spangled Girl," performing in base camps, hospitals, villages, and on the frontlines. In addition to the comedy of acting under bizarre and hostile conditions, he describes the grim realities of death, maiming, and endless body bags. The piece has its charms, but they wear thin after a while.

The Complex, 6476 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood. Sun., June 19 & 26, 3:15 p.m. (525) 455-4585 or
