Update on John Sawoski's latest appearances
June 2001 -- John Sawoski is still musical director for the musical Funny, You Don't Look Like A Grandmother at the Santa Monica Playhouse. The Los Angeles Times says "Funny, This Musical Revue Looks Like a Winner... laughs for the whole family... the talented ensemble has its comic timing down, getting every laugh, wink and nod." LA Weekly says: "...enjoyably old-fashioned without being creaky, a feel-good show that avoids oversweetness... this revue-style musical is fun, sassy and smart." IN/LA Magazine says "the six-member ensemble, beautifully balanced under John Sawoski's fine musical direction, generates the largest pleasures." BackStage West says "This unpretentious, ingratiating revue is warm, tender, funny, and wise."
Saturdays at 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm, and Sunday at 2:00 pm, through September 2, 2001. Please call 310-394-9779 ext. 1 for reservations.John Sawoski Performs with Capistrano Valley Symphony Again
