Ring of Red: A Barrio Story in Broadway RING OF RED: A BARRIO STORY
Bootleg Theater
9/20-9/30/2018
The Untold Stories of Chicano Vietnam Veterans to Hit the Stage at Bootleg Theater LOS ANGELES, Calif. – The invisible histories of Chicano veterans of the Vietnam War are being brought to center stage in the debut of “Ring of Red: A Barrio Story.” The play will run from Sept. 20-30 at Bootleg Theater, 2220 Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles. “Ring of Red” is written by Pomona College Professor of History and Chicana/o Latina/o Studies Tomás Summers Sandoval who utilizes the unique testimonios, or testimonial monologues, to elevate the stories of patriotism, duty, service, post-traumatic stress disorder, addiction, family love and friction, and what it meant for one generation of Chicanos to live with the scars of war. Since 2012, Summers Sandoval has collected more than 50 oral histories of Latino veterans of the Vietnam War and their families. Those oral histories are now the backbone of “Ring of Red.” The play is directed by Rose Portillo. “Chicanos are underrepresented in theatre and we’ve got a misunderstood story,” says Summers Sandoval. “We’re talked about in the media like we’re a threat, but Chicanos have been in the U.S. for a long time and we have a given a lot to this country.” Both Summers Sandoval’s father and an uncle are Vietnam veterans, as were most of the men he knew growing up. Out of his own sense of duty to record the stories of these veterans and of their families, Summers Sandoval captured hundreds of hours of oral testimonies over a two-year period with the help of Pomona College students. Among the actors, Summers Sandoval’s father, will have a role in the performance adding a deeply personal touch to the work. Performances of “Ring of Red: A Barrio Story” will start at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20 through Saturday, Sept. 29, and also at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 23 and Sept. 30. The Sept. 23 performance will be followed by an audience “talk back” discussion. Tickets are $15 to $25 and available online.

Time Stands Still in Broadway TIME STANDS STILL
Lounge Theatre
9/7-9/30/2018
Sarah is a photojournalist for a magazine. James, her boyfriend, is a foreign correspondent. Both have returned home to their apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, after suffering traumas during a stint on assignment in Afghanistan. James’ wounds are largely emotional. Sarah, however, took a shrapnel hit to the face. Her mobility was also impaired when the vehicle in which she was riding was blown up. Her local guide was killed. Very much currently in their orbit are their boss Richard (who is also Sarah’s long-ago lover) and Richard’s new young-and-hot love Mandy. Sarah loves photography. It enables her an element of control in a world spinning madly. When she snaps the shutter of her camera, Time Stands Still. James is fine with building a normal life in New York. Sarah clearly relishes the challenge of finding the perfect image, the powerful rush that comes with taking the photo and making time stand still in a dangerous world. Can their relationship survive? Written by Donald Margulies. Directed by Joel Zwick. Starring Nicole Pacent, Jamie Zwick, Paul Urcioli, Kelly Fischer.

The Lounge Theatre
9/15-10/7/2018
Acclaimed director Tony Tanner will world premiere Give Me the Sun, his riveting adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts, at The Lounge Theatre in Hollywood on September 15, 2018. Give Me the Sun is a period play, taking place in late Nineteenth Century Norway. Helene Alving, a graceful mid-aged woman, welcomes her son Osvald back home from Paris, where he lives as a successful artist. It’s not a simple visit; Osvald must recuperate from an illness that has disabled his talent and threatens his existence. Complicating Mrs. Alving’s attempts to understand and ameliorate her son’s condition are Pastor Manders, a friend and spiritual guide who holds her soundly accountable for missteps in her marriage to Osvald’s father, and the maid Regina, to whom Osvald is attracted for reasons he has yet to uncover. Mrs. Alving must confront the past, accept the present, and face the future that all envelope her in Tanner’s emotional response to Ibsen’s work.

The Complex Hollywood

The show explores Sikhs and xenophobia in a post 9/11 America. Inspired by actual events, Sundeep Morrison’s one woman show, RAG HEAD, addresses hate, hope and American identity. On August 5, 2012 a white supremacist entered a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and murdered six people. Sundeep Morrison’s portrays six inextricably linked characters whose lives are forever changed by one desperate action. Since 9/11, there has been an alarming increase in hate crimes committed against Sikhs, Muslims and other immigrant communities. With their turbans and long beards, Sikhs are often mistaken for Muslims or Arabs, and have inadvertently become targets of anti-Muslim bias in the United States. According to the Sikh Coalition, there are roughly 500,000 Sikhs in the U.S. many of whom have been subject to xenophobic harassment or violence.

But when their shot at the American dream is interrupted by a series of strange events, they must become unlikely allies in a post-recession world. Sept. 21 thru Oct.21: Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 7 p.m. IAMA Theatre Company in a Pasadena Playhouse guest production at the Carrie Hamilton Theatre Theatre, 39 S.

FLAX Partners with Tin Flats on Series of Exhibitions, Performances and Drive-In Screenings in Los Angeles this Fall in Broadway FLAX PARTNERS WITH TIN FLATS ON SERIES OF EXHIBITIONS, PERFORMANCES AND DRIVE-IN SCREENINGS IN LOS ANGELES THIS FALL
Tin Flats
9/6-11/30/2018
This fall, FLAX (France Los Angeles Exchange) is pleased to partner with Tin Flats to present a series of programs focusing on the notions of process and translation—exploring the transition space in which they develop and the actions they offer. On view from Sep 7 - Nov 30, 2018 with an public opening celebration on September 6 from 6-9 p.m., the series of programs oscillate between presence and absence, tangibility and invisibility, bringing together the works of artists from Los Angeles, France and beyond. The group exhibition The Angel’s Share uses a chemical phenomenon of disappearance as a metaphor. Endless Song performance duo is grounded by the shape of the space around the performers’ bodies, making the invisible tangible. The exhibition The Tyranny of Distance navigates between two continents, with all the artists tackling the question of translation in time and space by presenting artworks in both places. These programs are complemented by weekly screenings presented in the parking lot of Tin Flats, which will be transformed into a drive-in theater.
