Chelsea Jordan & Samuel Alvarez

Appearing on our next Ken Boxer Live are two very popular performers, Samuel Alvarez and Chelsea Jordan, with the Cavalia Odysseo, currently stationed in Oxnard, CA.

Cavalia Odysseo, for those who haven’t heard, is a theatrical extravaganza, a unique blend of equestrian and performing arts, with state-of-the-art special effects. Its magnificent stage of 50 riders, acrobats, and musicians share the stage with 65 majestic horses. It’s a must-see!

Samuel Alvarez, resident artistic director, was born in Texas. At age five he was already fearless. Diving, gymnastic, dance and tech classes were just a normal part of his childhood routine. His love of circus arts began when he first saw a circus on TV, and his passion for the stage arts continued to grow ever since.

At age 24, he was cast in his first major production with Cirque du Soleil, then later joined Odysseo in 2012 as an acrobat, aerialist and trainer. He now uses his multi-dimensional expertise as the show’s resident artistic director. Samuel speaks English.

Chelsea Jordan grew up riding in Washington State. She started at age seven and went on to show quarter horses and paints in several different disciplines. As a teenager, she began learning dressage and has loved the discipline ever since.

Prior to joining Odysseo, she worked in international development, earning degrees in International Relations and Environmental Policy, and serving in the US Peace Corps from 2012-2014 in Botswana. She joined Odysseo in 2016 and considers it to be her dream job because she gets to work with horses, art, and an international community all at the same time.

Kathleen Wilhoite—Actress, Singer/Songwriter—Guest 07/10/2017

Kathleen Wilhoite

Kathleen Wilhoite, a universally acclaimed actress and songwriter and Santa Barbara native, is our next Ken Boxer Live guest.  Please join Ken and Cate for an interview with this great talent. For complimentary tickets to this live event, please click this link.

Quoting from her IMDb page:

Born in 1964, Kathleen Wilhoite grew up in Santa Barbara, California, and began singing in her church choir from the first grade. Two years later, she was performing on stage, as part of a back-up choir, with The Carpenters, at the Santa Barbara County Bowl. All the while, she studied piano and songwriting and appeared in her high school’s theater productions, such as “The House of Blue Leaves”. Kathleen wrote and sang as one of the “Boogie Woogie Bugle Girls”, a harmony group inspired by The Andrews Sisters. She also became the youngest member of the Santa Barbara Songwriters Guild (age 16).

After high school, Kathleen elected to pursue an acting career, as opposed to music, and enrolled at the USC Drama School. Just a couple of months later, she landed her first movie role in Private School (1983). Throughout the 1980s, she appeared in a number of film and TV projects as both leads and second leads where her brash sexuality and unconventional style was eagerly put on display.

Kathleen Wilhoite
“Murphy’s Law”

She appeared noticeably opposite Charles Bronson in Murphy’s Law (1986), Jane Fonda in The Morning After (1986), Robert De Niro in Angel Heart (1987), Amy Irving in Crossing Delancey (1988), Patrick Swayze in Road House (1989), and Debra Winger and Nick Nolte in Everybody Wins (1990), and Susan Sarandon and Nolte in Lorenzo’s Oil (1992).

While her acting career flourished, she continued to expand her music skills but was dealt with a few setbacks, including a contract with Mercury Records that fell through. After a brief sojourn to Texas to refocus intently on her music, Kathleen returned to the Hollywood rat race and eased back in as a “working actress”. A variety of offbeat roles in such movies as Nurse Betty (2000) and Pay It Forward (2000) has kept her name active on the credits list for over two decades.

She landed a number of challenging roles on such shows as L.A. Law (1986) and ER (1994) and, more recently, Gilmore Girls (2000) — portraying everything from drugged-out moms to the mentally-challenged. In the late 1980s, Kathleen was chosen by cartoonist Cathy Guisewite to give vocal life to her “Cathy” creation on animated TV.
