Californian artist Todd White will be in Liverpool on Saturday 15th June 700-9.00pm, showing some of his fantastic, stunning art work at Rennies Gallery Bold Street.
Todd began his career in a Warner Bros Studios working with Tiny Toons, then forged his own artisic style into what we see today.
You can see Todds originals and signed limited additions at a price you can afford or just wander Rennies and look about captivated by his and the other art around you. Beware though, Todd loves to talk and sketch the people about him. Who knows, you may be one of his next art pieces with a distinctive body, detailed lips, eyes, hair, skin and hands……a trade mark of Todd.
He was the creative idea behind the team that put together ‘Spongebob Squarepants’ and he has gone global ever since, creating more and more wild, wacky, and wonderful art.
Collectors of his work include numerous celebrities such as Abbey Clancey, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Sylvester Stallone to name.
Todd’s accolades too, are so numerous. He has been the official artist for ‘The Grammy Awards’ and was chosen by Warner brothers to celebrate their 70th anniversary of The ‘Wizard of Oz’. Coca Cola has even used his images on their bottles.
This will be a rare opportunity- to meet, chat to and be inspired by a modern artist. Be there and meet him……
Rennies Bold Street Saturday!
Don’t miss Friday 31st May 8pm at the Unity Theatre for Mary Pearson’s one-woman show. This show is part of Physical Fest, the only festival of it’s kind in Europe and it returns for its 9th annual outing, and this year it is set to be the biggest and best yet, with a superb line-up of performers to thrill and entertain.
The Fest was launched on 24th May at the Unity Theatre and will showcase companies that are entertaining and dynamic in their performances.
The last time I wrote about one of the Unity’s plays…….it was a complete sellout. I strongly advise you get tickets quickly for this one.
Left standing at the disco. Caught naked on the red carpet. Gathering dust after the big sale.
Fashion victim, aspiring pop-diva and a chronic underachiever is suddenly consumed by delusional fantasies of commercial success.
This is the play, with all the right stuff in it that’s entertaining, absorbing from the start and a reflection on what maybe aspects of your inner self….all you ever wanted to do but didn’t.
Watch with amusement, outrage, empathy, embarrassment and relief as pedestal becomes soapbox and FAILURE turns into freedom.
This is a superb, engrossing new solo performance bringing together visual absurdity with contemporary dance, comedy and social commentary.
Watch and Enjoy.
Spread the Word.

I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is The Misanthrope, Roger McGough’s latest adaptation of Molière at the Playhouse, is a brilliant, brilliant play. The bad news is that it’s McGough’s last. So hurry down and see it while you can.
The Misanthrope may be set in 17th century France, but it’s very much a play about now. On the surface a comedy of manners, The Misanthrope explores some of the darker sides of humanity and what makes us all, well, human. All too human in some cases.
The Misanthrope is also enormous fun. Just as I was about to write something poncey about iambic pentameter in my notes, Alceste (Colin Tierney), the eponymous Misanthrope, wafted away the pretence of talking in verse and set the scene for a clever, funny, witty and knowing play that takes the audience right along with it.
Telling the tale of Alceste’s rejection of polite society as well as his love for the flighty Célimène (Zara Tempest-Walters), a girl who eptomises the world of courtly love that Alceste despises; The Misanthrope is ultimately a tale about what it is to be good and decent and honest. It is full of wit and charm thanks to McGough, Molière and the fantastic cast and crew that have brought the play so wonderfully to life.
An absolute must see, The Misanthrope is on at the Playhouse from now until 9th March. Get down there while you can.
