"Pippin" comes to San Diego, SDGLN interviews star Erik Altemus

San Francisco native, Erik Altemus used to dream of becoming a performer while listening to the lyrical stories of popular Disney films. When he was a child, his bedroom was a place of fantastical worlds filled with music, dance and the choruses of song-filled dreams.

In the cooler evenings of his Northern California neighborhood, Altemus could be heard in the bedroom singing to the music that touched his soul. He just couldn’t contain himself; the joy of performing was not something he could just turn off.

A very unsettling and unhappy place is "Dismaland"

Bansky, the world renowned street artist, who become well known from the movie “Exit Through the Gift Shop,” is a contributor to an art piece so full of anarchy, that the Disney universe is collapsing upon itself.

In his latest installation titled “Dismaland,” Bansky has created such a depressing world, Prozac should be administered at the turnstile.

Or at least give a new meaning to the definition of an “E” ticket.

Even the "cast members" look melancholy.
