Chromolume Theatre presents: HELLO AGAIN
Michelle is The Whore
Hello Again focuses on a series of love affairs among ten characters during the ten different decades of the 20th Century in non-chronological order. As though seen through the lens of a combination time machine and bawdy, old-time kinescope, Hello Again crisscrosses beds and jumps from decade to decade, intimately examining the painful secrets that drive characters into each other's arms and towards the bruising effects of reckless passion. Originally premiering at Lincoln Center in 1994, this musical, written by Michael John LaChuisa, makes its triumphant return to Los Angeles in nearly a decade.
Directed by RICHARD VAN SLYKE
Musical Direction by BRENDA VARDA
Produced by JAMES ESPOSITO

"Chrissie Hynde with Broadway chops."
-- A.J. Diamond, Musician
"A distinctive lead singer is one of the most valuable musical commodities a modern band can possess. On this front (they) succeed in spades, thanks to the prowess of vocalist/bassist Michelle Holmes. Fusing the dramatic clarity of pop with the pronounced intelligence of acoustic music, Holmes' interpretive powers are sparked by the sheer intensity of her potent rock delivery. Front and center, her voice is a beacon of clarity, illuminating the path of the band. Lead guitarist Steve Pinkney shines with both his muscular neo-psychedelic leads and as spotlighted on an extended acoustic guitar intro on the song, 'Hey, Steve Hawking.'"
-- Dan Kimpel, for Sunset Strip Radio
