The heart of this story sneaks into your consciousness slowly through the short vignettes that signify each visit Joseph has as part of a clinical medical study on trial medication for Alzheimer's.
Anna runs the one-on-one sessions as clinically and sterilized as she's become, both careerwise and personally. But after a few awkward and odd visits, Anna begins to learn of the tormented and abusive past Joe has endured, along with his distress over feelings of losing parts of his past, and memo...
If Water Were Present, It Would Be Called Drowning
I am sorry that someone anonymously wrote a critical review of this show....To me that illegitamizes their comments. Let me tell you, no one walked out of the show that I saw! The audience was mesmerized by the poignant and funny story and the terrific acting. There was a standing ovation at the end.
The synopsis of Sinner's play, does not do it full justice. This is truly an important work, deep, dark and meaningful. It is about the all too common human experience of setting off down the path...
VOICES IN MY HEAD: A LIFE***
Bill is one of the most enjoyable storytellers in Los Angeles. This show he has created is funny & personal. He should be commended for being able to be so vulnerable & for sharing such intimate aspects of his life on stage for an audience. Great job, Bill!...
What can I say that hasn’t already been mentioned below. I saw Majd’s performance of “Blood Fruit” this afternoon and I was very impressed. Buckle up, as this is quite an emotional ride. As he tells his story, Mr. Murad really takes us there. I laughed & keke’d during the high parts, and stifled a tear during the low parts. No matter who you are, I guarantee that you will be able to relate to the character and his story. A wonderful story about love and family, the one that we are born with...
Michael's Daughter is beautiful, raw and real! Ciera is both extremely brave and strong to use her talents and share her personal story with the world in such an artistic way. It's a must see....
The Lights Are Off
Being in uni right now, this play was very relevant and pretty accurate according the characters that you might find in a college kid's dorm. The intensity and honesty of each actor was spot on. The message of this play was surreal and bold. I really enjoyed how the space was used and the dedication of the designers, directors and actors following through with the playwriting and vision.

This play is going to change lives and open up paths of communication between many people with different backgrounds and opinions. I feel so blessed to have been at this reading and really excited about where this play heading. Each side of the homosexual "issue", I dare to say, is addressed in this play (except for maybe the homosexual with faith side that was addressed in the talk-back). What I most appreciated was the well rounded characters that were portrayed on stage, as real people with is...
Before The Red Trees Come
I really appreciated the attention the detail in this show. The plot was not extreme in depth, but its simplicity helped the show and the patterns sat well with the audience. I loved each of the male actors' interpretation of the three generations and the female was brilliant! I could really see the commedia characteristics coming into play. Thank you for your simplicity and dedication into creating this beautiful and peaceful piece.

Michael’s Daughter: Daring to Look Back
“Michael’s Daughter,” the one-woman play written and performed by Ciera Payton, quilts together family dysfunction, drug addiction, and the weight of growing up biracial in the Deep South into a loving, bluesy jazz riff on one woman’s ability to surmount forces that would surely crush a lesser soul.
In telling her own life’s story, Payton artfully dons first a flannel shirt, a stutter, and a stoop to become h...
