Towne Street Theatre's
Thank YOU so much for tuning in from around the Country and the World for Corona & Other Maladies last week! A Reprise will be available soon.
In the meantime, here are some comments to enjoy...
Thanks so much for the wonderful production and party!! It was delightful to see everyone's work and to meet the TST family - Rachael C.
Thanks for the great show. I enjoyed all the plays I watched.!! And the technical side of using Zoom and the programming by Nancy was great too. I've been to many Zoom plays where the sound and lighting was off, but this was perfect. Looking forward to the next one! - Sid K.
I enjoyed it very much Nancy. So great to have opportunity to enjoy theatre, even via Zoom!!!Thanks for doing what you do!!! - Joni A.
So much fun! The vignettes/scenarios were funny and lighthearted...even with the presence of the "zoombies"! Thank you for putting this production together. Nice fare for a Saturday evening to combat "corona virus and other maladies" in real time. - Rosalind G.
Thank you so very much for being a bright, shining light in the current storm of our lives--We have had so many more storms over the last four years. Towne Street LA keeps its foot on the pulse of Los Angeles, America and the World and is never afraid to bring us what we need to hear, see, think about and act on. It is not always pretty, however it is the reality of the times. Your Company knows when to step forward, when to pause and when to burst through the door to make us pay attention. I know that your voices will not be silenced. Thank you. Take Good Care, Wear Your Masks, Keep Your Distance and Keep Up the Exceptional Work. - Gina Simpson - Front Row, Center
That show was some of the best entertainment I've seen in quite a while. Great stories well told and of course the directing was first rate. I love seeing you in your element, whether live or virtual. - Roy D.
I really loved the medley of plays. All the stories were really good and everyone's performance was outstanding! - Roshon M.
Great work by all! - deborah c.
Corona and Other Maladies is part of TST’s Virtual Summer Series via the TST Virtual Salon.
Towne Street Theatre (TST), lifts at-home audiences’ spirits during the strangest of times with a presentation of Corona and Other Maladies on Zoom. The timely collection of six short plays explores aspects of life as we know it now.
Transcending the ordinary “talking heads” performance that is typical of theatre on Zoom, Towne Street’s actors bring their characters to life with sets and costumes created in their own homes. The result is a true, “fly-the-wall” entertainment experience that audiences will not soon forget.
The show is directed by TST Artistic Director Nancy Cheryll Davis and produced by Davis, Nancy Renee, Kristina Roth, Maimouna Camara and Teressa Taylor.
