"City of Angels"

October 12-21, 2018

CITY OF ANGELS is two shows in one. It is the interweaving of two plots, one dealing with the writing of a screenplay in the legendary Hollywood of the 1940’s; the other, the enactment of that screenplay. This double feature quality leads to many other unique production values, the most notable being the fact that CITY OF ANGELS is perhaps the only “color coded” show any theatre audience is likely to see. The movie scenes appear in shades of black and white, and the real life scenes are in technicolor. The show boasts two musical scores. One provides the cast with numbers to help reveal certain emotions or to celebrate particular moments in the way that only music can. The “other” score was written to emulate pure movie soundtrack music, 1940’s vintage. It is entirely appropriate, then, that the final curtain comes down on two happy endings.

I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being."

“Love, Loss, and What I Wore”

May 11-13, 2018

The Arts at Angeloria's is thrilled to welcome Herstory Theater as they present and perform  "Love, Loss, and What I Wore" by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, based on the book by Ilene Beckerman. 
A funny, warm, heartfelt play of monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes and memory covering all the important subjects—mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and why we only wear black.
Proving that a great show is always in fashion, Love, Loss, and What I Wore has become an international hit.  With its compulsively entertaining subject matter, this intimate collection of stories by Nora and Delia Ephron celebrated an accomplished two-and-a-half year run in New York’s Westside Theatre. One Act - approximately 90 minutes 
Herstory Theater, a professional, non-union theater company founded by Virginia Wolf in 2011, was initially created to produce three one woman shows that bring to life little known women in history.  However, theater being what it is, it now also serves as a production company for various other interesting and fun projects.  Learn more at www.herstorytheater.com.

"I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change"

February 9-18, 2018

"I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change", was written by Joe DiPietro with music by Jimmy Roberts. This musical comedy is a funny, fast-paced series of songs and vignettes about the trials and tribulations of people trying to connect in the modern world. The scenes stand independent of each other, but progress in a fashion designed to suggest an overall arc of relationships throughout the course of life, from dating through marriage, children and old age. The play's tagline is 'Everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit.' The show features 4-6 actors who, between them, play 58 characters aged 30 to 80 singing 24 musical numbers. With few exceptions, the scenes stand independent of the others, but progress in a fashion designed to suggest an overall arc to relationships throughout the course of one's life. An insightful and hilarious musical, "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change" will have you belly laughing and shouting, This is my life!
Director: Kristina Passier
