LA VIEWS X: SANCTUARY AT THE COMPANY OF ANGELS THEATER  (AEA THEATRICAL PERFORMANCE)

I am excited to return to The Company of Angels for their new world premiere mainstage production, LA Views X: Sanctuary.

LA Views: Sanctuary

Company of Angels, 1350 San Pablo St, Los Angeles, CA 90033
Free parking!

WORLD PREMIERE! What does sanctuary from fear, hate, prejudice, violence, and oppression look like? Sanctuary is about feeling safe. Whether it’s safe from ICE, a school shooter, or gentrification. In the tenth anniversary of our LA VIEWS play festival,Company of Angels explores the meaning of sanctuary (protection, fairness, equality, and refuge) as played out in the lives of Angelenos. In an evening of seven short plays by local playwrights, "LA Views X: Sanctuary" examines the American ideal of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness within the current political climate in which, at best, many feel unwelcome, and at worst, are targets of hate.

HOLLYWOOD FRINGE FESTIVAL: THE COLOR COLLECTIVE  (SKETCH COMEDY)

I'm performing with my sketch team, The Color Collective, at the Hollywood Fringe Festival throughout June.

The Color Collective is a comedy variety show featuring women and POCs in everything from music and dance to stand-up and sketch comedy, The Color Collective strives to be a show for all people, where we can tackle topics that typically aren’t (or can’t) be covered by others. Our goal is to make the audience laugh and see past our color or gender and to be sure that the point of view of minorities and women are always heard.

Inspired by In Living Color, Chappelles’s Show, and other variety shows of the past, we show that smart, unique comedy can come in all shades. We want to highlight artists that may not always get the same spotlight as others of a different color or gender.

DATES AND TIMES:
Saturday, June 9th - 10:30 pm
Friday, June 15th - 7:30 pm
Saturday, June 16th - 10:30 pm
Friday, June 22nd - 9:00 pm
Saturday, June 23rd - 4:30 pm

LOCATION:
OMR Theater, 6468 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90038

AKUMA-SHIN AT SACRED FOOLS THEATER  (AEA THEATRICAL PERFORMANCE)

I am proud to announce that I will be playing Emiko Ogata in Sacred Fools Theater Company's new mainstage theatrical production, Akuma-shin.

Akuma-shin
written by Kenley Smith
directed by Scott Leggett (BeaverQuest!, Neverwhere, Skullduggery)
MARCH 30 - APRIL 28, 2018
Fridays & Saturdays @ 8pm, Sundays @ 7pm
Tickets: $15 (Previews: $10)  - Click here to purchase tickets.
The Broadwater Theater, Mainstage, 1076 Lillian Way, Los Angeles, CA 90038

WORLD PREMIERE! In 1956, a giant kaiju (monster) destroys Tokyo and sends seismic waves of fear, anger and ignorance through generations. Facts are questioned, history is alternatively written and modern politics is set against primal religion in this ferociously civilized cautionary tale of two nations coping with their own damaged legacies. Can humanity reckon with the monsters that rise against us, the ones that live within us all?

HELPFUL ARTICLES TO READ BEFORE ATTENDING OUR "ALTERNATE REALITY" SHOW:

The original Godzilla movie was a metaphor for the devastating effects of nuclear weapons.

A Brief History of Norman Mailer

William F. Buckley Jr., the intellectual force behind the modern American conservative movement

Yukio Mishima: The Turbulent Life Of A Conflicted Martyr

Unanswered Prayers: The Life and Times of Truman Capote

Akuma Shin @ Sacred Fools

“…a play that ricochets between parodic mockumentary, whimsical alternative history, allusive movie-geek trivia game and moody metaphysical thriller.”- LAWeekly

Terrific performances and an ingenious production design…” - StageSceneLA

“Director Scott Leggett weaves together stylish video projections, spectacular lighting effects and searing, high-decibel sound to theatrically suggest what the production cannot literally show — the monumental, pulse-pounding physical presence of Akuma-shin.” - LAWeekly

"David Wilcoxis excellent as Buckley; more of an incarnation than an impersonation, he captures the man’s mannerisms and essence in a caustically witty portrayal. Levi is also very good as Capote, aptly approximating Truman’s vocal delivery; he’s particularly fine in his monologue about encountering the beast in Vietnam. Parducci brings bluster to the pugnacious Mailer, but is even better as Curtis LeMay, grimly preparing for a bomb drop that will likely kill many civilians.”- Stage Raw

“The production benefits from the excellent stagecraft of the artistic staff…” - Paul Myrvold’s Theater Notes

 

THREE CHEN SISTERS - 陈氏三姐妹  - EPISODE THREE ("Thanksgiving Episode")

I had the great pleasure of working with up and coming director, Elaine Wong, on her digital series, "Three Chen Sisters". In this wacky ensemble comedy, I play the oldest of three Chinese sisters who must abide by her mother's traditional expectations to wed, while attempting to develop her own sense of independence. The talented cast also includes Joanne ChewHana Wu, Grace Shen, Anthony Tai, Juston Graber and Christian Henley. Our excellent Director of Photography is Anthony Kai Tung Liu and our amazing Composer is Peter Lam.

PARIS WINDOW - FEATURE FILM

I'm in a new independent feature film directed by Amanda Kramer and you're invited to our special screening on September 6 @ 7:00 PM!

PARIS WINDOW is set entirely in the apartment of infatuated adult siblings Julian and Sunny, PARIS WINDOW follows the damaging effects of a series of hypnosis informercials on the socially and emotionally stunted pair. With creeping intensity, delusional brother and sister turn on each other as Julian becomes convinced he’s the victim of a conspiracy when Sunny begins dating a man who looks exactly like him.

PARIS WINDOW is a hypnogogic psychological thriller blending the single set claustrophobia of Polanski’s REPULSION with the doppelgänger obsession of Dostoyevsky’s THE DOUBLE and the hallucinatory paranoia of Cronenberg’s VIDEODROME.

Directed by Amanda Kramer, starring Noel David Taylor and Sophie Kargman, co-starring Anna Cordell and Gina Piersanti, scored by Ben Babbitt, shot in Chinatown, Los Angeles.

ROSE AND THE RIME @ SACRED FOOLS THEATER - THEATRICAL PERFORMANCE

I'm currently in rehearsals for the next mainstage production at Sacred Fools Theater in Hollywood. We open January 20, 2017 and have a wonderfully talented cast to bring this new "fairy tale" to you and your family.

WEST COAST PREMIERE! “Maybe next time we’ll have a different story.” ROSE AND THE RIME tells the tragic and magical story of the frozen town of Radio Falls. When Uncle Roger reveals to young Rose the truth about her parents, Rose sets off to find the mysterious Rime Witch. What follows is a stark transformation of the town and its inhabitants. From snowfall and sledding to witches and barbecues, the tale of Radio Falls and its inhabitants is spun right before our eyes through a mixture of inventive ensemble physicality, music, and puppetry, all supported by projected animation. Like all great fables, it’s sophisticated and mature while accessible to all ages. One of the House Theatre of Chicago's most beloved original myths, Rose and the Rime reminds us once more that in order to last, happiness must be shared: if we keep it for ourselves, it will disappear.
