This is a musical about everything we ever knew or imagined concerning exploitation versus core values. Hollywood is evil (naturally). And the entire show is a charm-fest under Dan Bonnell’s unified direction... Theatre’s answer to a life raft.
"The music is fun, the writing is sharp, the cast is delightful, the theater is cozy…and the drinks are reasonably priced. A delightful mix of satire and musical comedy that challenges current economic, religious, and television trends in hilarious and unpredictable fashion...crowd pleasing, peach pie of Los Angeles Theater.
Paradise is a musical and an experience not to be missed" - LifeInLA
I’ve never had a pick of the week because it wouldn’t be nice to copy my friends at LA Weekly, but if I did, this would be it.

What they're saying
about Hobo's Lullaby internationally:
Style : Bluegrass
Rate (1-5) :
Did you ever give it a thought what the
sound would have been if Bill Monroe
teamed up with Muddy Waters ? Well according
the promo sheet from Hemifran it would have
been pretty close to the sound you’ll hear
on Cliff Wagner’s newest
effort : Hobo’s Lullaby.
A brilliant mix between bluegrass, blues,
country and related genres Mr. Cliff
Wagner & his old # 7 Hobo’s Lullaby
is a dream come true for every lover of
roots music. Pleasing all kinds of listeners
within the range of US roots music this
band throws in a collection of fourteen
tracks of which the majority is self-penned.
The covers included here are not always
the most obvious ones and this makes it
even more interesting to spin this record
a couple of times.
