CABARET (1998 revival version)
Book by Joe Masteroff, Music by John Kander, Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Fall 2012 - Malibu Stage Company, CA
Produced by Dick Van Dyke and Richard Johnson
Choreographed by Abertossy Espinoza
"Lilli Passero's Sally Bowles is a casting triumph. While her father is the director, it is obvious that her selection was clearly based on talent. Passero's performance while standing alone on the stage and singing the signature standard, "Cabaret," is one of the show's many highlights."
"Director Jeffrey Passero has done yeoman's work in pulling together this company of talented actors, singers and dancers."
MOLLY by Simon Gray Fall 2009 Victory Theatre Center in Burbank, CA
With Giselle Wolf, Ann Gee Byrd, Max Roeg, Don Moss and Geoffrey Wade
"British Playwright Simon Gray based this play loosely on the sensational 1930's murder trial in England of Alma Rattenbury. Jeffery Passero directs his fine cast with finesse, on Elizabeth Hayden-Passero's impeccably tasteful set".
"A superb cast! An involving production! Impeccable performances!
---The Tolucan/Pat Taylor
"Director Jeffery Passero never releases the tension and let's us see both husband and wife as alternately villainous and pitiful".
---My Daily Find/Amy Lyons
"Jeffery Passero directs this theatre piece with the same style and grace that one used to see on British PBS Television programs. The association is a compliment to this stage production. Those UK based dramas held complex plot points with much tension and drama."
---Accessibly Live off-line
"Jeffery Passero has chosen his cast well, trusts these fine actors implicitly, and gets them around the chess board in scintillating order"
---Park Labrea News/Beverly Press
"Excellent acting and first rate production values. Passero's direction is effective and bolstered by a gorgeously appointed drawing room set credited to designer Elizabeth Hayden-Passero".
---Glendale News Press
