Live From Hollywood

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Returning after a three year hiatus, Author Services Inc, located one block west of Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Blvd, is once again hosting live music and story-readings of L. Ron Hubbard's "Stories from the Golden Age," with some of the world's most talented musicians and Hollywood's most recognized actors, including Chick Corea, Edgar Winter, Karen Black and David Carradine.

The 200-seat Author Services (ASI) Theater has recently reopened to resume its live presentations of L. Ron Hubbard's original series of pulp fiction classic tales penned during the 1930s and 1940s and recently adapted into multi-cast audio performances. Each of the live shows held in the ASI Theater will be preceded by musical performances from such top billed performers as David Campbell, Chick Corea and Edgar Winter.

The stage performances of the Hubbard's stories are scheduled to include many of Hollywood's most celebrated performers including Karen Black (Five Easy Pieces, The Great Gatsby), Bruce Boxleitner (Tron, Babylon 5), David Carradine (Kill Bill, Kung-Fu), Marty Kove (Karate Kid) and Phil Proctor (co-creator of the Firesign Theatre).

Last Saturday, the theater hosted a performance of L. Ron Hubbard's The Iron Duke with Phil Proctor, Michael Yurchak, John Mariano, Rajia Baroudi and Tait Ruppert and a special performance by Broadway vocalist Sisu Raiken.

"L. Ron Hubbard had long appreciated the importance of Hollywood," said Joni Labaqui, ASI's producer of the weekly performances. "These weekly readings merely continue a tradition begun over 70 years ago."

It was in 1937 that Hubbard was invited out to Hollywood by Columbia Pictures after purchasing rights to his novel Murder at Pirate Castle which he then adapted for the screen as the Secret of Treasure Island. He also worked on other big-screen serials for Columbia, including Adventures of the Mysterious Pilot and The Great Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok.

The Stories from the Golden Age is a collection of 153 tales, spanning all genres from fantasy and science fiction, to mystery, adventure and western, written by Hubbard in the 1930s and 1940s using his own and 15 pen names.

After each live show, guests are invited to ASI's spacious library and lounge for further refreshments and an opportunity to mingle with the evening's performers.
