Popbytes Loves Karen Black!

hey kids! i was thrilled this afternoon when i got to see legendary actress **karen black** (join her on myspace) perform live on stage in a new play/musical called **missouri waltz** (which she also wrote!) down at **the blank** located on santa monica blvd at wilcox (a simply adorable little theater that has been up & running since 1990) i've been a huge fan of hers as long as i can remember - i saw burnt offerings & trilogy of terror back in the day and ever since then i've been hooked on ms. black!

she has done a ton of work and was even nominated for a best supporting actress oscar for five easy pieces (with jack nicholson) and garnered a golden globe nom for the day of the locust - at almost 68 - she's still got it! the show itself was just ok (it could use a little tightening) but seeing her live up on stage was totally worth my time! plus she screamed twice in the play - something any horror aficionado would love! the show is running in june as well - there's about twenty shows left - anyone local to los angeles who happens to be a karen black fan - go & see it! i hope everyone is enjoying the long holiday weekend - i'm about to get back to playing my wii - i can't stop! popbytes over & out for now...xxoo!

PS make sure to watch the karen black film clip montage below - i really need to rent airport 1975 (special thanks to rick for the heads up on that one!)
