Theater Usher’s Witty and Occasionally Snarky Observations Reveal the Changing Face of Broadway’s Theater District
Usher Denise Reich worked the aisles at Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Rent, Def Poetry Jam, Enchanted April, Chicago, Mamma Mia, Jekyll & Hyde, and The Invention of Love, to name but a few. She witnessed onstage bloopers, attended closing night parties, and dealt with irate patrons and superfans that camped out overnight in full costumes. She can’t wait to tell you all about it.

Kathy Garver fascinates us. Some may remember her from her work on Family Affair (1966-1971), but did you know that she was actually on Our Miss Brooks (1953), in Charles Laughton's The Night of the Hunter (1955), in The Bad Seed (1956), in Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments (1956), and appeared in episodes of dozens of classic American TV series, including Fury, Father Knows Best, The Rifleman, Daniel Boone, Dr. Kildare, The Patty Duke Show, and others? Just so you know that she's no "has been," she's worked steadily ever since then, and she's appearing in five new films coming out in 2016! She's beginning a speaking tour entitled The Power of Perseverance with the inspiring notion of "Never Give Up." Meet Kathy atThe Girl Cave(don’t worry - men are invited, too!) 16897 Beach Blvd. Huntington Beach, CA 92647 (714) 206-0156 February 17, 2016, 6:30 p.m. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
