Or Yelling at Women Walking Their Dogs
By Raymond J. Barry

When an aging couple learns they are losing their house due to the Wall Street mortgage scam, unemployed bricklayer Hubert (Raymond J. Barry), and his homemaker wife Mildred (Judy Jean Berns), are faced with destitution and homelessness.  Their adult, unemployed son Herman (Joseph Culp), an eccentric, unsuccessful painter who depends on his parents for food and shelter announces to his parents he is having an exhibit of his art. His father berates him, unleashing a furious family battle over the realities of work, money and the value of art in the struggle for survival.

Veteran actor/playwright Raymond J. Barry (Born on the 4th of July, TV’s Justified), offers a new play that questions the meaning of work, the value of art and the survival of family in a time of economic crisis.

Breathing Room

A humorous and lyrical tapestry of words, music, movement and quantum physics. A science teacher with a mysterious past (Charles Reese) and a visual artist overwhelmed by life (Eileen T’Kaye) explore our modern culture of “technological vertigo” in a series of playful and intriguing scenes infused with music — played live at every performance by playwright/composer Newmark on her trademark neon-green electric violin.

Talk back with the audience after the 2pm matinee on
Saturday Oct 10th.

Put the following in the memo line:  POTP MUSICAL


Greenway Arts Alliance
& Fogelberg Foundation of Peoria

as they join forces to present


Book by Kate Atkinson & Karen Harris
Music & Lyrics by Dan Fogelberg

PART OF THE PLAN is a New Musical – an original story scored with the music and lyrics of the late, celebrated, singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg. The book, written by Kate Atkinson & Karen Harris, follows three decades in the lives of an adopted boy and the teenaged girl of privilege who was forced to give him up.
PART OF THE PLAN takes us through the boom times of post-World War II America, the social and sexual revolution of the 1960’s, and the political upheaval of the 1970’s.  And then fate steps in…
Our vision is to present a powerful story, told with heart and passion, and to bring Dan Fogelberg’s music to a generation who may not know his work, to those who may have forgotten his artistry, and to the die-hard fans who long to hear his music in all forms. 

Six Performances in Los Angeles!


Performances will be the last two weekends in July
FRIDAY, July 24 – 8pm
SUNDAY, July 26 – 7pm

THURSDAY, July 30 – 8pm
FRIDAY, July 31 – 8pm
SATURDAY, August 1 – 2pm
SUNDAY, August 2 – 7pm

Once you donate, you will receive an email
so that you can choose one of the performances to attend.

From the Part of the Plan team:
“We are entering a new stage in the development of our Broadway-bound musical. With the support of Greenway Arts Alliance and Fogelberg Foundation of Peoria, you have an opportunity to see it in a workshop-style environment, before we take it to a regional theatre.”

Greenway Go!

140px-go-GCTGreenway GO was designed to provide access to and engagement in the arts to the Los Angeles community. By building on current initiatives, we envision the program as a vital entry point for students and the community to experience a variety of art events for free or for a very low cost. Greenway GO is part of a larger, evolving effort to engage in creative placemaking, accessibility, and true community building through the arts. As Greenway continues to grow and explore a new model for how arts, education and social enterprise can work together to help organizations remain both relevant and economically viable, it is simultaneously important that we find ways to include access points for community members who may be shut out by traditional pricing, location and lack of connection to the art itself.

Our current assets for this initiative are:

  1. The Greenway Court Theatre – Greenway curates a season of theatrical experiences at that include co-productions, original works and curated presented offerings.
  2. Melrose Trading Post – art-based marketplace held every Sunday at Fairfax High School. Greenway’s signature social enterprise program.
  3. Da’ Poetry Lounge is a low-cost, open mic’ poetry and spoken word event produced every Tuesday night, and is the largest, longest-running and most diverse weekly spoken word event in the country, engaging poets of all ages and backgrounds in this standing-room only event. DPL served as one of the inspirations for Russell Simmons’ Tony-awarding winning Def Poetry Jam.
  4. InkSlam – an annual festival of workshops and poetry competitions for all ages, that attracts local and national poets to this popular, three-day event.

Tell Me I’m Pretty (Living in Cacophony)


Tell Me I’m Pretty (Living with Cacophony) Written and Performed by Joshua Silverstein Directed by Diana Wyenn with musicians Gerry Doot, Merrick J Woodard, and Erik Hallsey With side-splitting humor and raw power, performance artist Joshua Silverstein returns to Greenway to deliver an explosive mix of storytelling, spoken word, vocal percussion, and hip-hop. Backed by a live band, Silverstein layers a series of playful and riveting narratives—full of humor, humanity, and wit—grounded in personal experience, and nuanced by the complexities and contradictions surrounding race, gender and, poverty in America. Plus, he reveals what it would have been like if Buster Keaton could beatbox AND explains why he’s the ideal biracial Batman. Boom!

Three Performances in Los Angeles!

Reclining Nude On La Cienega



a handpainted story about life, love, and finding a comfortable place to lie down.

Reclining Nude on La Cienga is a funny, touching (and colorful!) journey into the bewildering abyss of romance and family relationships–a hilariously insightful whirl of observations, truths, discoveries and brushstrokes about the absurdities and calamities that is life and the free-for-all that’s growing up.  Part waif, part green beret, Jann Karam flits, frets and holds forth as she paints the story of her life: her childhood in Superior, Arizona; the ongoing (dumbfounding!) quandary of family; her failed relationships (on both coasts); and throughout it all, her quest to create a utopian artists’ colony rife with joyful possibility…and carrots.  It’s about finding peace in a world of chaos — a universal story of life, love, and finding a comfortable place to lie down.
