THE MEATBALL CHRONICLES Gets Los Angeles Premiere

THE MEATBALL CHRONICLES Gets Los Angeles Premiere Santa Fe "Actorvist" Debrianna Mansini of Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad will be in Los Angeles this June to do the LA Premiere of The Meatball Chronicles and to advocate for New Mexico congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham's Bipartisan Anti-Lunch Shaming bill HR 2401 and Senator Tom Udall's senate Anti-Lunch Shaming Act, S.1064. Grisham is currently running for Governor of New Mexico, the first state to ban "Lunch Shaming" last year in 2017. California also banned the practice of "Lunch Shaming" as of January 1st, 2018 after public pressure and hard work by Children's Defense Fund's Marian Wright Edelman and CA Senator Robert Hertzberg's SB 250.

Mansini will partner with a local Hollywood Chef throughout The Meatball Chronicles LA run to create theme menu selections including Debrianna's spinach bread, sauce from a recipe passed across generations and of course meatballs. The team will host a "Kitchen Table Talk" luncheon on June 9th with local stakeholders and Hollywood Fringe patrons to raise awareness of the issue while also taking action to demand that congress end lunch shaming once and for all across the United States.

 

Debrianna Mansini has been seen in both film and television in; Hell or High Water, Crazy Heart, Breaking Bad, and Better Call Saul, to name a few. She is also an actor, creator, and co-writer of the web series Cyphers and the upcoming Reaction 21. She is a New York trained actor with a passion for activism. "I believe deeply in using my skills to promote community and consciousness." The Los Angeles premiere of her original show The Meatball Chronicles opens June 2nd at The Broadwater Second Stage (6320 Santa Monica Blvd. Hollywood, 90038) in Hollywood.

 

The Meatball Chronicles follows one woman through humorous and sometimes heart wrenching meals that align with stories of her childhood, her relationships with men, and in particular, her complicated relationship to her mother. Mansini crafts this piece in a way that transcends her own story into universal themes that anyone who has a family can love. As she kneads the dough and thickens the sauce through each Italian recipe, the stories associated with those recipes reveal the complex ways that families cope, laugh, grieve, and show their love through food.

 

The Meatball Chronicles opens at The Broadwater Second Stage (6320 Santa Monica Blvd. Hollywood, 90038) on Saturday, June 2nd at 5 PM, Wednesday, June 7th at 7 PM, Saturday, June 9th at 11 AM, Sunday, June 10, 8 PM, Wednesday, June 13th, 5 PM. Tickets for the play are $15 and available at: http://www.hollywoodfringe.org/4847
