  • When it was first performed in theaters a couple of years after the L.A. riots took place, Twilight: Los Angeles must have been very powerful. Unfortunately, director Mark Levin's filmed version lacks that impact. show more

  • Forces the audience to rethink the riots in new and difficult ways, to find empathy and revulsion where it might not have known they existed. show more

  • Part documentary, part one-woman quick-change show and part sociological investigation, this is enthralling theater with a purpose. show more
