New play Remembers Holocaust, Celebrates Anne Frank’s 90th Birthday at Museum of Tolerance

LOS ANGELES (May 2, 2019) — In observance of Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Simon Wiesenthal Center today announced casting for a new play about Anne Frank that will celebrate what would have been her 90th birthday this summer.

Eve Brandstein will direct Timothy P. Brown, Rob Brownstein, Tony DeCarlo, Andrea Gwynnel, Ava Lalezarzadeh, Kevin Matsumoto, Mary Gordon Murray, Aylam Orian and Marnina Schon in the U.S. premiere of Anne by Dutch playwrights Jessica Durlacher and Leon de Winter — in a never-before-seen adaptation by Nick Blaemire. Suzi Dietz will produce.

In this new adaptation of the immortal Holocaust story, 13 year-old Anne Frank imagines her life as a young woman — safe in a post-war world. When she meets a publisher who expresses interest in her story, Anne looks back on the two years she spent hidden away with her family during the Nazi regime.

This innovative production eschews traditional sets and costumes to place the audience and actors on the same dramatic plane as the characters — all real people under real circumstances — fighting for their lives, sanity and dreams of the future.

Previews will begin June 5, with performances taking place June 16 through July 22 at the Museum of Tolerance.

The Los Angeles County Police Department is investigating pop singer, Justin Bieber in connection with an alleged attempted robbery. The Los Angeles Times reports that Bieber tried to take a phone from a woman at a San FernandoJustin-Bieber Valley miniature golf course Monday because he thought she was taking his picture.

So far police have not interviewed or charged the trouble young pop star.

According to the website, TMZ:

The woman says Justin and his crew got into an altercation with some guys at the batting cage when J.B. noticed she was going for her cellphone to take pictures. She says Justin demanded to see her phone so he could erase any photos. She says she refused to fork over the phone so he then went into her purse and grabbed it.

The woman says she began wrestling with Bieber, trying to get her phone back. She says he ripped it out of her hands but couldn’t accomplish his mission because the phone was locked.

She says Justin gave her the phone back and demanded that she unlock it to see if she took photos. She obliged and showed Justin she had taken none. She says she told Justin she and her 13-year-old daughter just wanted to say hi, and Justin screamed, “”You’re humiliating yourself in front of your daughter. Why don’t you just get out of here.” Her daughter started crying.



Was Brittany Murphy and Husband Poisoned?

Hollywood: November 18, 2013

TheWrap reports that a new laboratory report lends credence to what actress BRITTANY MURPHY’S father has long suspected: that she and her husband died not of natural causes, but of poisoning by someone out to kill them.

“It’s a bona fide report,Brittany-Murphy-001” the lab’s general manager, Denny Seilheimer, told TheWrap. “It was our client’s prerogative to release the report. That’s all I can tell you.”

Murphy’s father, Angelo Bertolotti, didn’t accept the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office conclusion that the “Clueless” star and husband Angelo Bertolotti died of natural causes — pneumonia and anemia — five months apart. He sued to gain access to her hair samples, and hired Seilheimer’s private lab, the Carlson Company, to look for signs of poisoning.

The lab’s report found evidence she was was poisoned — probably by “a third party perpetrator with likely criminal intent.”

Coroner’s spokesman Ed Winter said the coroner’s sfdgsdfgsdfgsdoffice has not been in touch with Murphy’s father and had no updates.

“We have no comment on that and our report stands as of now,” he told TheWrap.

Bertolotti told TheWrap he was not immediately available to commentdid not immediately respond to requests for comment Monday. Murphy died in 2009, and Monjack in 2010.

LAPD spokesman Officer Cleon Joseph said it would be up to the coroner’s office whether to take further action.

“Whatever the findings, if there was something to report, they would report it to us,” he said.

Two Men Accused in Plot to Murder, Castrate Justin Bieber


Police in New Mexico have confirmed the plot to murder and castrate Justin Bieber according to a report by Albuquerque news station KRQE.

The station, which sources a police investigation, alleges that a plot was hatched by two prison inmates and one of their nephews to murder Bieber at a sold-out show at NYC’s Madison Square Garden.

According to the station, a New Mexico prisoner named Dana Martin, serving out two life sentences for the rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl, enlisted the help of former fellow inmate Mark Staake and his nephew Tanner Ruane to carry out four murders. Two of the reported targets were Justin Bieber and his bodyguard.

KRQE reports that Martin is obsessed with Bieber, and actually has a tattoo of the singer on his leg.

They go on to report the details of the planned murders, which involved strangling the victims with a paisley tie before ultimately castrating them.

KRQE then states that what ultimately foiled the plot was Martin himself inexplicably turning in his co-conspirators. Staake was reportedly arrested in Vermont on outstanding warrants, while his nephew made it to New York, where police reports obtained by KRQE allege he was arrested with “murder tools and pruning shears.” Additionally, recorded calls between Ruane and Martin reportedly indicated Ruane’s dismay that he was unable to carry out the murders.

Gibson Camp Scrambles to Save Mel’s Reputation

Sorry Guys. Too Late for That.

Since the release of the fifth tape revealing Mel Gibson’s mad rants and threats against his former girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, his team have gone into overdrive to mel_gibson2present Mel as an up-standing citizen and fine husband and father to his multitude of kids.

They have found audio experts to state that the tapes have been “tampered” with even after various top experts for the CIA and the FBI have analyzed the tapes and conformed their authenticity.

They have also convinced Mel’s ex wife, Robyn Gibson to write a letter to the court to state that “Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage.” Robyn also claims that there was never any domestic violence perpetrated by Mel against any of their children.

Wonder if the fact that Mrs. Gibson is due to receive upwards of $450 MILLION dollars from her divorce from the insane actor have anything to do with her stepping up to save his reputation. Nah. It couldn’t be.

Gibson’s lawyers say he was set up but there is a ton evidence to indicate the opposite.  Oksana’s teeth were knocked out, there is a bruise on their baby’s chin, allegedly from when Mel hit Oksana while she was holding the child. Oksana’s son is also reported to have witnessed the verbal abuse of his mother.

Next they will claim Gibson’s traffic stop and subsequent anti-semitic rant to a Malibu police officer was also a set up.

Poor Mel. The world is out to get him. Him and OJ Simpson. Both victims.

Please! Someone from Gibson’s camp get this abusive, angry old man some help before he hurts someone, or even worse, kills someone or maybe self destructs from the venom brewing inside him. Compared to him, Lindsay Lohan is Mother Terresa.

One thing for sure. We will be hearing a LOT more about Gibson in the coming months.

“If and when it is released on the internet, via a spurious, unofficial website, there is absolutely nothing she or her lawyers can do about it.”

“Lindsay is devastated – particularly as she is working hard on cleaning up her act” the source added.
