There’s An Alien In My Soup! Jan 26 – Feb 4th at The Marcelle

banner-aims  CLICK HERE for tickets to the stage play- THERE’S AN ALIEN IN MY SOUP. A one man play- with music too, reenacting the accounts of 7 military personnel who could be called UFO first responders. What does THAT mean? Well, the play is based on actual interviews and documents of the characters themselves describing what went on behind closed doors when ‘they’ came to visit… Whether you ‘believe’ or not, the play is compelling and fun and begs to be seen in live theater’s setting. Written and produced in St. Louis by myself and music co-writer Curt Landes, I personally invite you  (implore you!) to support this new theater project- running for two weeks at THE MARCELLE theater and help get it to the touring stage! Click here for ticket info about the 6 performances that open Thursday January 26 2017 thru Feb 4th. And if you would like to discuss bringing a group, or you have any other questions, just contact me directly at 314 363 Eight One Eight Three and thanks so much!  -Alan

Stage Play; There’s An Alien In My Soup | Live at The Kranzberg /STL USA

banner-aims

Sneak-Preview/ World Premier! Do you believe in UFOs? This is a question that we all have pondered or perhaps have been asked. I may have not yet seen one directly, but I have studied accounts given by ordinary people who were in extraordinary situations, and I believe many of those accounts. Though I wrote the script for this one-man play, the stories I recreate happened. The characters are fascinating and I see them as heroes. Folks who came to terms with what they feel their fellow Americans or fellow Earthlings should know, forgoing their anonymity and old security oaths. Personally, it’s gratifying portraying these people and conveying their stories in the setting of live theater. With music and lyric along the way, I invite you to enjoy this show and ponder its question. . .  Life’s stage is much bigger than we know! Tickets for The Kranzberg here!

The PhotoShop’d face (left) ? It is owner Fred Waelter- he really could fill the bill of that Dos Equis commercial!

When this place had just opened, I stopped in to talk music – and this led to a few weeks of my playing there- beginning in late September of 2015. Now here we are many months later with me playing there several times a week (along with other players such as Gary Presley, John Pyatt and others)! Their concept is an unpretentious yet contemp ambiance (with a nod to The Rat Pack). They serve aged steaks that don’t cost anywhere near the 50 buck-steaks of the fancy joints. They also have pizza and sandwiches. Located at 12490 St. Charles Rock Road Bridgeton, MO  63044. 314.733.5500. Fred and his partner Randy Waldman know that the customer comes first in this business. Come experience the personal hospitality and fun of Frederick’s!   -Alan
