On Saturday, October 1, 2011, Echo Park’s own nursery slash lighting store will be the host of 24 Hours on Sunset, an evening of short plays written by the talented Sharon Yablon and music by Thomas Chan. The scenes and monologues performed are about those eccentric characters that populate the long stretch of Sunset Boulevard from east LA all the way to the beach.

But don’t worry, the play doesn’t last 24 hours – “They don’t state what time it is, but the language, setting and tone is suggestive of a certain time of day or night.  The show is somewhat of a ‘day in the life’ of Sunset Blvd., and the variety of people who populate it,” Yablon told the LA Writers Examiner.

The performances feature Adrian A. Cruz, Jacqueline Wright, Eugene Butler, and Michael Bonnabel. It will start on the street outside of Mi Alma, then move into the space where each short play is set in a different spot (so there will be walking and standing).

Along with the play itself, tamales and sangria are complimentary – but donations are accepted!

Please RSVP by emailing Sharon at syablon22@gmail.com

24 Hours on Sunset
Saturday, October 1, 2011
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Mi Alma Gardens at 1901 Echo Park Ave.

While we don’t usually post events that are outside Echo Park’s boundaries, reader Katya is a fan of the blog and lives nearby – so why not?

This is the second weekend for Silver Lake resident Katya Lidsky’s one-woman show called “I’m Sorry.” She told us it’s a “funny dramedy about how I went from being a people-pleasing apologist to becoming an animal-loving activist.” She plays 16 characters during the 50-minute long show.

“For anyone who’s ever cared more about being liked than having opinions or integrity, this is the show for you. Because sometimes you have to find something to believe in before you can stop saying I’m sorry.”

There are some great reviews of the show, most calling it funny and inspiring. The weekend show starts tonight at 8:00 pm, with shows Saturday and Sunday as well. Go to Katya’s show and support a local actress!
