Big news! The last feature I did, (which was shot in beautiful Chicago, IL) just finished up it 's 8th film festival on the festival circuit. Thanks to everyone who saw Banana Season in September and check here for any news about where to purchase the film or future distribution.
Feel free to watch the trailer here.
"Unlike some musicals like “The Sound of Music” which sugar coats the subject matter, “Lili Marlene” deals with it head on, which is a tricky thing to do in a musical. Still, it turns out to be a very interesting new perspective on life during the rise of Hitler in the heart of Berlin, as the story delves into the lives of the German upper class, and in particular the royal families, working and living in this dangerous and frightening pre-war world.
The play, nonetheless, is at its best musically and vocally. The casting for the most part is excellent, and vocally the entire ensemble is spot on.The ensemble is also enjoyable to watch and they manage to do quite a lot with this relatively small stage. "

"Blowers has cast a highly skilled and talented cast. They deliver the songs and dances with high energy and vibrancy. They give life to a world that is on the verge of mass destruction. Lili Marlene tells the story of love during this horrific time in history. It puts a sweet twist on how love is possible even in the dreariest of times.
