A resounding, heart-opening, breath-taking send-off! Lala’s Sneak Preview of “Imagine-a-nation” at the 418 Project soared! The full house of enthusiastic, laughing, listening viewers brought Lala onto the world of stage with tender open-hearts, allowing her magic to captivate them all. In the audience Q & A, Director Robin Aronson kindly brought Rivera water while Company Manager Dariel Garner passed vegan cookies through the audience, and people poured out there hearts, asked about the writing and rehearsing process, where the stories came from, and celebrated, together, the beauty of this evening.
“I am so happy. That’s all the words this verbose playwright has for this. What an incredible reception for this play!” Rivera Sun
The 418 Project graciously welcomed the return of their 2006 Artist In Residence. Mark Schneider, on the board of directors, commented on how inspiring it was to see the effect this community dance center has had on a young artist’s life. Executive Director, Ana Marden, who managed the house and the lobby during the show said as viewers left the theater,
“I don’t know what you did to those folks, but they’re all leaving amazed!”
Viewers left speechless, inspired, excited for the other two plays, and the tech crew themselves said it was a magical night. Many thanks to all who helped it be so!
