Last weekend’s run of “The Education of Lala Girl” reverberated the Pacific Cultural Center with laughter, cheering, and standing ovations. The Q & A with cookies evolved into a transformational sharing between all audience members, production team, and me (Rivera) as tears mingled and sentiment poured out. This profound sharing has become a favorite feature of the shows as it brings an element of old-world theater experience into the twenty-first century and encourages everyone to look around and deeply appreciate the experience of sharing a live performance with each other.
Our deepest thanks also go out to the staff of the Pacific Cultural Center who have been beyond welcoming and accommodating in their “selfless service” and heartfelt dedication to these shows. Performing Lala’s transcendent stories in this church-turned-yoga-center is a match made in heaven, nirvana, or whatever you would like to call it.
And the goosepimples of excitement are running up everyone’s arms for the DEBUT of Lala’s third story, “The Emancipation of Lala.” I can tell you it is a breath-taking, stunning show, and leave it at that until you come and see it.
AND. . .we are officially, happily, and wonderfully announcing our extended run! “A Star Called Love; The Freedom Stories of Lala” will play an extra two weekends in June in the following schedule:
8pm Fridays “The Imagine-a-nation of Lala Child”
2pm Saturdays “The Education of Lala Girl”
8pm Saturdays “The Emancipation of Lala”
So tell the world and come yourselves. We look forward to seeing you! Rivera
