Celebrating his 90th birthday this year, the 19-time Grammy Award winner is still regarded as the preeminent singer of the 20th and 21st centuries. Bennett continues to be embraced and loved by audiences of all generations.

Odysseo LogoThe World’s Largest Touring Production Returns to OC on Nov. 16

Due to strong demand in SoCal, the internationally acclaimed entertainment company Cavalia will return to Orange County two weeks earlier than originally planned with its latest production of Odysseo that is wowing North American audiences and critics alike. After stunning 90,000 spectators from Orange County, LA and San Diego this past spring due to its critical acclaim, Odysseo will be back to call Irvine home for this year’s holiday season.

Attracting audiences of all ages, Odysseo definitely makes a popular family outing and gift idea.

3 carosello danharper 0Odysseo is an immersive theatrical experience that marries the equestrian arts, stage arts, and high-tech theatrical effects at never-before-seen levels. A show unlike any other on the planet, Odysseo brings the audiences to a live Hollywood-style movie set, where the moving interactions between human and horse are at the heart of the action. On an enormous stage, layers of mesmerizing decor are combined with live music, gravity-defying acrobatics, mesmerizing aerial stunts and inspiring HD projections, all of which make Odysseo the first 6D show in the world. With a state-of-the-art video screen three times the size of the world’s largest cinema screens, as well as a three-story mountain for dazzling perspectives and a real lake - the last of which magically appears for a splashing finale - Odysseo truly pushes the limits of live entertainment.

IRS problems are a very personal issue and people facing them often do not know where to turn for help.

"IRS problems generally affect all aspects of your life,” says Edward Daoud, Ph.D., MBA., EA. "Many people just live with the problem for months and sometimes years, assuming that nothing can be done about it.”

For anyone facing IRS problems, imagine how relieved they'd feel in the hands of a competent expert who deals with the IRS on a daily basis - a professional who truly cares about helping people. An expert who would give them the peace of mind they and their family deserve so they can stop looking over their shoulder once and for all, knowing that they no longer need to meet or communicate with the IRS.

Too often, individuals attempt to handle their IRS situation themselves (or with their current CPA or the person who prepared their taxes), but don’t receive the relief they are seeking.

Because they know the ‘ins and outs’ of the tax system, Edward Daoud and his experienced team of enrolled agents at Capstone Tax Resolution are uniquely qualified to help individuals struggling with IRS issues to negotiate a personalized solution for the resolution of their tax problems.

"It’s easy for good, hard-working Americans to fall behind,” says Edward. "Providing IRS Tax help to Orange County residents was a natural evolution for us as a company to expand the scope of our financial services. We have helped settle over 100 cases for a small fraction of the amount owed. As your representative, we handle all IRS communications on your behalf.”

One client, James S. of Laguna Woods says that working with Edward was a “warm and personal as well as a professional experience. We would absolutely recommend the services provided by Capstone Financial” and encourages anyone facing IRS issues to “avail yourself to this experience. A personal touch is deeply appreciated."

Capstone Financial & Tax Services handles IRS representation services including the Preparation of Unfiled Income Tax Returns, Penalty Reduction, Offers in Compromise (OIC), Payment Plans, Financial Hardship Plans, Wage Garnishment/Bank Levy Releases, Audits and IRS Appeals.

"We’ll listen to your IRS difficulties in our office in complete confidence at NO CHARGE. We’ll answer your questions, explain your options and suggest solutions and provide you with a written estimate of our fees to permanently resolve your IRS difficulties.”

To connect with Edward and the team at Capstone Tax Resolution call (949) 310-3261 or  visit www.CapstoneTaxPros.com. Capstone is located at 43 Marbella, Suite 102 in San Clemente.

This summer, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®,the circus that started it all, invites fans to blast off on an intergalactic adventure with the launch of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Out Of This World™ - an all new, immersive experience playing at the Honda Center/Anaheim from July 29 – August 7.

“As we unveil Out Of This World, a show unlike anything experienced before, we are launching our iconic brand into the future,” said Alana Feld, Executive Vice President of Feld Entertainment and Producer of Out Of This World. “Ringling Bros. is constantly changing, but this is more than that. In this production, we’re creating a new genre of circus that will shatter expectations, spark excitement and push the limits of what’s possible.”

In Out Of This World, audiences will be riveted by an interactive, action-packed storyline filled with space-age family fun and technology, which deepens their connection to the performers. Through the lens of a magic telescope capable of discovering the most spectacular circus stars in the galaxy, they will join the Circus Space Fleet on a heroic mission of good versus evil to bring performers back to Earth, traveling to interstellar worlds of sand, water, fire and ice.

For the first time, the show features thrill skaters, in addition to unbelievable performances by gravity-defying acrobats, majestic animals and hilarious clowns. Imaginations will run wild throughout the non-stop display of artistic athleticism, with acts seamlessly transitioning from floor to air to ice, a feat never before done in Ringling Bros. history.

“By adding the element of ice, we’re bringing speed and motion to an already thrilling, multi-sensory performance,” said Feld. “Throughout the show, families won’t know where the floor ends and the ice begins. In the same way, parents won’t know what’s more amazing: what is happening in front of them or the look of wonder in their children’s eyes.”
