Hello dear readers! This week’s theater review for the LA Weekly is of Why I Died, A Comedy!, now playing at the Hudson Theatres in Hollywood.


Katie Rubin’s energetic solo piece presents a typical tale of the struggling actor who, yearning for success, ventures on a journey of spiritual discovery and then cobbles together a string of experiences and calls it a show. The result is a meandering yarn featuring miscellaneous miracles and offering little insight with no clear resolution.
