Upcoming beautiful things:

March 16 – Charlotte, NC CONFIDENCE (and The Speech), written by Susan Lambert Hatem, is a unique, gender-bending political play about confidence, women in politics and President Carter’s 1979 Crisis of Confidence speech. Come to the reading March 16 with Charlotte’s Off-Broadway and their PAGE to STAGE series. We are in talks with COB for a workshop production for Fall 2018!

homewardla_logo-e1518385065995.jpgApril 13 – 22  – 134 West is proud to join with many theater producers around Los Angeles to produce one of many HomewardLA events, a 10-day citywide event where multiple productions of monologues based on stories from people who have experienced homelessness will be performed by actors all around the city. HomewardLA’s goal is to increase awareness around the homeless crisis facing Los Angeles and raise funds for The Midnight Mission, a great nonprofit organization on Skid Row. We think it’s also having a neat side effect of bringing #LAThr people together.

Songs for all the seven ages inspired by the bard!

134 West presents O BABY MINE: Sing a Song of Shakespeare, a new indie album of children’s songs and lullabies inspired by, and taken from, Shakespeare’s plays.  Producer/Director Susan Lambert conceived this new concept album when she adapted the lyrics of Twelfth Night’s O Mistress Mine to sing to her infant son while rocking him to sleep.

Alas, poor Yorick...  Sing a Song of Shakespeare with O Baby Mine.
