Several well-known celebrity performers took the stage recently at the Golden Age Theater in Hollywood, to perform an adaptation of the L. Ron Hubbard western story, “Reign of the Gila Monster”. A short trailer of the performance can now been seen on YouTube.
Hollywood, CA – February 10, 2011 (via PressReleasePivot.com) — Martin Kove (Karate Kid), Bruce Boxleitner (Tron), Lee de Broux (Robo Cop), Josh Robert Thompson (Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson), were a few of the celebrity performers on stage recently at the Golden Age Theater, located in Hollywood a block west of the Grauman’s Chinese Theater on Hollywood Blvd. A short theatrical trailer of their performance of the L. Ron Hubbard western story, “Reign of the Gila Monster”, can now been seen on YouTube.
The story is a comedic western penned by Hubbard in the heyday of pulp fiction, during which he was one of its most prominent authors. It’s the tale of Howdy Johnson, and how he saves the town of Powderville from the larger-than-life self-appointed marshal simply known as “The Gila Monster”. The trailer can be found on the Golden Age Stories YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAERTm7IT-g . The video also provides a good example of what guests experience every Saturday night at the Golden Age Theater.
“FOUR STARS (Highest Rating) [for] Southern California’s most refreshingly unique entertainment experience,” was the rating given by CBS Radio’s Contributing Arts & Entertainment Critic, Todd David Schwartz, for the weekly performances. The Saturday night shows recreate “the sensations of old-time radio, compellingly crafted tales by award-winning writer L. Ron Hubbard,” said Schwartz.
The full story, the “Reign of the Gila Monster”, can be found in the Stories from the Golden Age audiobook entitled “The Baron of Coyote River” (Galaxy Press, $9.95) a full cast audio production.
