‘Piloto’ in Hollywood Produces a new Musical….

With more than 500 Club Piloto members in ‘Club Pilotos of Mexico’,  we have pilots represented  from every walk of life.  A book could be written on so many of you who have interesting lives, challenging work, fascinating hobbies, etc.  One who qualifies in nearly all areas would be Mark Wolper.   You may have met Mark at Hacienda de los Santos.  Mark’s company,   ‘ The Wolper Organization, Warner Bros.’ has more than 500 films to its credit.  Here’s a little more information about Mark which I found on the web:

.

 Veteran filmmaker Mark Wolper has been producing for film and television for more than 20 years.  As president of the Wolper Organization, he has been involved in many high-profile projects, including the Academy Award-winning crime drama “L.A. Confidential,” starring Russell Crowe, Kevin Spacey and Kim Basinger; the multiple Emmy-nominated miniseries “The Mists of Avalon,” starring Anjelica Huston, Julianna Marguilies and Joan Allen; “The Thornbirds,” starring Richard Chamberlain and the Emmy-nominated and NAACP-winning miniseries “Queen,” starring Halle Berry.

.

Wolper’s extensive producing credits also include “Helter Skelter,” “Salem’s Lot,” “Murder in Mississippi” and the Emmy nominated series “Penn & Teller: Bullshit!”

.

He began his career in 1981 as an independent producer, working with such studios as Warner Bros., Showtime, MGM and Disney on projects ranging from short films and documentaries to miniseries and foreign feature films.

.

In 1987, he joined his father, David Wolper in leading The Wolper Organization.  Over the years, the company has been responsible for more than 500 films, which have won more than 150 awards, including two Oscars, 50 Emmys, seven Golden Globes and five Peabody Awards.

.

Now, as he describes it,  has a new hobby, which is creating his first musical.  It opened last week in West Hollywood and below are more details about both the production, as well as some very positive reviews.

.

From the web also, ‘SERRANO the Musical’, is described as a musical comedy set in ‘the mob’ in New York City’s Little Italy. Serrano, the  POET, LOVER … HIT MAN’ is a Serrano is a modern take on the French classic, Cyrano de Bergerac.  For those of you in Southern California, if you get a chance, take in ‘Serrano’ which is a spoof about a modern day Cyrano Debergerac,  set in New York City.

If you are able to attend, drop me a note and anything you would like to tell Mark about your experience and I’ll pass it on.  Here’s the site for ‘Serrano’, also the various reviews.  Enjoy the show!

Also, if you enjoy music the Ortiz-Tirado Music Festival begins its nine day run this week (on Jan. 23rd) in Alamos.  This year, all of the hotels in Alamos were sold-out nearly two months before the event.  You won’t be disappointed if you make reservations for next years festival which is the last eight or nine days of January.
