June 27, 2013: A Tribute To Roger Ebert featuring Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, Erica Gavin and Chaz Ebert at the Saban Theatre
This was so fun! Clearly a lot of the audience had never seen the happening freakout that is Beyond the Valley of the Dolls so while it was fun to hear them react it was also nice to hear that someone in my row was singing along with the songs same as I was. My only disappointment was that they didn’t bring the special guests in the audience up on stage for a round of applause so we didn’t get to see Dolly Reed/Martin (who’s in the picture above with Chaz Ebert) or Erica Gavin, Kitten Natividad or Stu Phillips even though they were there. Chaz Ebert did give a brief but lovely speech though so that was wonderful. RIP Mr. Ebert, you are missed by many!
