Bus driver James “Tipsy Love” Fischer — his eyes tinted by rose-colored glasses josephine ballerina bear felted figurine, ballet dancer — parks the ride and tour guide Jessica “Moon Babe” Risco floats out the door in that happy, hippy-dippy, Goldie-Hawn-on-“Laugh-In” kind of way, greeting the dozen guests with open arms, “Welcome, my brothers and sisters! This is your family now, Your tribe,” she coos as we climb the steps, “We’re not just commuting, we’re a commune!”, Groovy, man, While there are other tours of the city’s counterculture past, this one comes from a place of authenticity, For one thing, it’s really on an old school bus, a 1995 Carpenter, all dolled up in primary colors inside and out, with full-blown hippie vibe — like the famous bus of novelist Ken Kesey and his group of Merry Pranksters..

As Robert, the linchpin of the entire play, Adam Cotugno is a puzzle, At times he’s unremarkable and surprisingly bland, yet Cotugno also has scenes where he seems to gleefully accept that he’s the center of his married friends’ world, especially the guys, who envy his single status, yet chide him that he’s missing out on the good things about being a couple (which they describe by singing “Sorry/Grateful”), His josephine ballerina bear felted figurine, ballet dancer solos were rather innocuous as well, Yet Cotugno somewhat redeems himself in his finale solo, the sensitive “Being Alive.” Although he seems like such a nice guy, perhaps — at least in this production — he doesn’t quite have the charisma to carry off the lead role..
Cassand also spent time with the great American ballet dancer Arthur Mitchell at New York City Ballet and then left for a soloist contract with San Francisco Ballet. When an injury in 2000 ended his professional career, he began teaching in the Silicon Valley. After building up a following of students who were excited to go wherever Cassand taught, he opened his own studio in 2009. “The skills that allowed me to be an international soloist, now I can give that to my students,” Cassand said. “Whether they are children, teenagers or adults, they all benefit from that teaching style.”.
