About La Grand Fromage by Nicole Aloni:

nicole_anloni_031_adj_seamless_inprog_1 (1).jpg

While teaching her class how to make a cheese souffle, world-renowned chef Nicole gets a call, 5 years late, from the Food Network, offering her her own show. This catapults her down memory lane to where it all began. We traverse to acting school and her first restaurant in LA, the french countryside where she worked in a castle, and back again to catering the Academy Awards and the strange requests from starlets and the Queen herself. Join us for this wild romp of perseverance on the rollercoaster that is Nicole's life.

Nicole shows us that no matter what our age, we still have many adventures inside of us, if we are willing to take some chances. 

Directed by Amy Poisson and starring Nicole Aloni. 


About Margarita stands by lisa halpern:

How do we face our fear and unlock the door to our desired future?

Margarita is a successful inventor and kitchen table activist, but something lurks under the surface of her excellent life that threatens to keep her from living fully. The problem? She really can’t open that door.

A story about love, fear and racism. 

Join us for a reading of Margarita Sands and a discussion with the playwright, 7:00 PM on January 23rd, 2018. Directed by Victor Pappas, starring Amy Love, Andrew Creech, Jason Marr, Tracy Michelle Hughes, Mona Leach, Angela DiMarco, Kate Wisniewski.
