Live! From the Library brings together two creative geniuses, playwright and actor Molly Bell and Center REPertory Artistic Director Michael Butler, who provided an up-close look—with a “backstage perspective”—at their newest production, "The Real Housewives of Walnut Creek: The Musical." The show is running in Walnut Creek until May 11. Molly Bell is a creative entrepreneur who works both on and off stage. Her first musical, Becoming Britney, which she co-wrote with Daya Curley, premiered at The New York International Fringe Festival in 2008; Bell also won best actress at the festival.
The multi-talented Michael Butler is a director, writer, actor, composer, and published songwriter. This is his eighth season as Artistic Director of the Center REP Company, the resident professional company of the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek.
