Lorraine Rodriguez-Reyes Heads To Georgia With Solo Show MAMI CONFESSIONS
Actress Lorraine Rodriguez-Reyes is taking her 1 woman, 10 Moms and 1 Million Problemas to Lawrenceville, Georgia performing her award-winning one-woman show, MAMI CONFESSIONS, at the Aurora Theatre for 2 special performances on May 31st and June 1st.
MAMI CONFESSIONS takes audiences into an unrestricted examination of motherhood. From childbirth to the empty-nest and everything in between, the emotional roller coaster ride of maternal love is brought to life through real-life stories from women of all ages and circumstances. Rodriguez-Reyes portrays 10 mothers who are fierce, funny, protective, loving, sad, joyous, proud, unapologetic, remorseful, provocative and amazing women.
To help her create MAMI CONFESSIONS for the stage, Rodriguez-Reyes brought in veteran director Susan G. Reid, a current Professor of Practice in Acting/Directing for Georgia State University's School of Film, Media & Theatre.
MAMI CONFESSIONS first premiered in New York City, winning the 2014 ONE Festival in NYC and earning a full production run at the Teatro Circulo. The show went on to wow audiences in 2015 at The Kitchen Theatre in Ithaca, New York. Now, Rodriguez-Reyes is thrilled to bring it to Georgia, "There is such a wonderful blend of people that live in Georgia, I'm thrilled that this show can bring people of all cultures and communities together to celebrate WOMEN!"
