Meet Aiko, Larry’s Personal Geisha [VIDEO]

After saying that my one-man show, “Growing Up Larry – Riding the Roller Coaster” (premiering Oct. 14, 7 pm, Stargate Theatre, West Sedona, 928-203-4499 for tickets) is about my 71-years-long life, I have been asked what are the specific major life issues dramatized.

They include:

  •  Accepting my parents’ roles in shaping my life.
  • Exploring my Jewish roots and path of universal spirituality.
  • Struggling to come to terms with my gay orientation – romancing, partnering, marrying, and divorcing women and men.
  • Getting three academic degrees, working three consecutive careers, and retiring twice.
  • Balancing my American and Japanese cultural sides.

This video of my singing “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” is from the preview performance of “Growing Up Larry – Riding the Roller Coaster,” my one-man show, Sedona, Sept. 30. I learned a lot from this performance and made changes in the script. The “revised” premiere of this show is October 14, 7:00 pm, at Stargate Theatre, 55 Shelby Drive, West Sedona. For tickets, call 928-203-4499. Because of adult content, the show is not suitable for children.

This show is my high-spirited one-man show. Laugh, cry, and sing along with me as I engage you with my light-hearted and often-poignant personal story telling, and sing the songs that highlight my 71 years. You are sure to have your own memories stirred as I bring you on this unique and inspiring sentimental journey. At the end of the show, I shall answer questions. Because of adult themes, this show is not suitable for children.

Heading to Australia to Sing & Learn

During my November tour of Australia to do concerts and workshops under The Larry Show banner, I shall be part of the Australian Consciousness Summit 2014, Nov. 20-23, in Central Australia. My dear friend, Christine Bannigan is organizing it, and we are planning for me to share a version of my one-man show, Growing Up Larry, at the Summit.

The Summit’s focus is on connecting with the Earth, the ancestors and each other, in love and oneness. It involves the secrets of an ancient spirituality passed down from the ancestors through the Australian Aboriginal people. I hope to be singing amid the sacred energies of Uluru (Ayer’s Rock) and Kata Tjuta (Olga Mountains).

Anyone want to join me at the Summit in the heart of Australia?
