We saw a play by VGT, held at the Music Box. It was about black women in LA trying to get bought as mistresses to rich white guys. Really well done. Can't wait to see what they do next!

We saw the play "Cocked" while in town over the weekend visiting our son and daughter in law. It was a 3 actor play with no intermission. All three actors made their respective portrayals very realistic. The theater itself was very nice and well preserved....More
