Towne Street Theatre Presents CORONA AND OTHER MALADIES

Towne Street Theatre (TST), Los Angeles' premier African-American theatre company, lifts at-home audiences' spirits during the strangest of times with a presentation of Corona and Other Maladies live on Zoom.

The timely collection of six short plays explores aspects of life as we know it now. Transcending the ordinary "talking heads" performance that is typical of theatre on Zoom, Towne Street's actors bring their characters to life with sets and costumes created in their own homes. The result is a true, "fly-the-wall" entertainment experience that audiences will not soon forget.

Corona and Other Maladies is part of TST's Virtual Summer Series via the TST Virtual Salon. Showtimes are Saturday, August 15th at 7pm and Sunday, August 16th at 4pm. Tickets are available on a "pay-what-you-can" basis at The show is directed by TST Artistic Director Nancy Cheryll Davis and produced by Nancy Davis, Nancy Renee, Kristina Roth, Maimouna Camara and Teressa Taylor.
