AVN/MEN, January 2020 reviews IT HAPPENED IN IBIZA. With 4 stars 1/2. Thank you, Brady (also featured the LOVED FUCKED review in the premiere issue of AVN/MEN, January 2019)
What an inspirational journey: from a “crazy” idea pitched in Berlin several years ago to a limited engagement at the Hudson Theatre in Hollywood. With endless more steps in between (the readings in NY and LA) and god knows how many hurdles for creator/producer Hans Berlin.
The idea itself was tantalizing: “a revealing musical” on… porn, no less.
The world premiere we saw at the Hudson’s –playing one final weekend this June 28-30– speaks volumes of Hans’ vision and perseverance. Of the talent he was able to attract: composer Thomas Zaufk, lyricist Erik Ransom, director Michael Bello, choreographer Jim Cooney… And of the brave cast who lent their voices and bodies to Hans’ characters (a shoutout to lead Taubert Nadalini, to a glorious Karole Foreman and an unforgettable Michael Scott Harris).
A work in progress, still, Shooting Star has the muscles to make it to the big stage. I look forward to booking my seat at the Pantages or the Ahmanson a few years down the road. Read the Operetta Research’s review

Made in Italy. 27 year old Rico Fatale is 100% Italian but has lived in Germany for a number of years. We flew him from Berlin to Naples and paired him with cutie Andrea Fusco for this all-Italian romp. “Federico has a beautiful, friendly smile”, says director Ettore Tosi. “Why on earth does he pout when he poses for the camera?” Watch Andrea and Federico at LucasKazan
Behind the scenes with Marco and Robbie Rojo –coming soon to LucasKazan
