KRL covers a lot of theatre, both local and in other parts of California, and we have taken our readers behind the scenes many times to get to know actors, directors, and others involved in putting a show together. This week we are once again doing a q and a with a local actor-this time it is Alex Vaux, who is currently playing Bob Cratchit in GCP’s production of A Christmas Carol at 2nd Space in Fresno.

Raymond Burr – More than Mason

Raymond Burr was Perry Mason (and vice versa) for most of my life, and more than half of his. In the series and the later movies, he made the role his own from 1957 to his death in 1993. He once said that the downside of the Perry Mason role was that it put everything else he had done in shadow.

I’m going to start wearing makeup again.
I’m not changing my lifestyle, I’m just going back onstage for a full-scale musical comedy, which I haven’t done for almost 20 years. I’ve done shows, but they were mostly one-man programs at libraries, or they were in smaller venues where I had no need to alter or enhance my face with bases or liners.

The Two Gentlemen of Verona isn’t the biggest and flashiest Shakespeare play, but it’s probably one of his first. The training wheels were still on, and he was learning to use some of the plot devices he would master in later plays. It’s a simple story, one you might see on a TV sitcom, and the Woodward Shakespeare Festival has given a bright, peppy, 50s look wrapped up in early rock-and-roll tunes that hearkens back to reruns of Happy Days.

Extra: A Mystery Short Story

by Michael Guillebeau


You’ve seen me a hundred times and never known it and I’ve changed your life every time.
I’m a movie extra. I take care of the details. And I’m a pro. Cheap extras show up for the paycheck; I show up for the movie. Like this one, pirate film, could be a breakthrough if we do what it takes. Sometimes extras just stand in the back and smile. Sometimes, I do a lot more.
