Event Description

Unveiling the centerpiece of its 2012-13 season of sophisticated and provocative theater that appeals to and is appropriate for kids while maintaining the look and emotional depth of adult theater, 24th STreet Theatre presents the debut production of its LAb24 resident experimental theater company. The West Coast premiere of Walking the Tightrope by Mike Kenny opens January 26 at 24th STreet Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.

Walking the Tightrope – The West Coast premiere of a highly theatrical and stylized tone poem that is also appropriate for children 6 and up. How does one survive the death of a spouse? Stan is lost—until he rediscovers his will to live during a visit from his young granddaughter. Kids will tap into this moving exploration of adult grief through the character of Esme, who visits her grandparents’ seaside home, but can’t find Nanna.

Written by Mike Kenny
From an original idea by Gavin Stride
Directed by Debbie Devine
Starring Mark Bramhall, Tony Duran, Michael Redfield and Paige Lindsey White
Presented by LAb24, 24th STreet Theatre’s resident experimental theater company

The Jewish Community Weaponized Hip Hop Against Black People

Is it not yet painfully obvious that the so-called European Jewish community has profited off of the destruction of African American families all across the world?Are we really going to take the stance that conscious Hip Hop wouldn't have sold records?
