I can’t imagine anything harder than doing a solo performance. The Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival celebrates women who do just that. Their 24th annual event begins this Thursday night with their champagne gala and awards ceremony at Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood, followed by three days of stunning solo performances at Electric Lodge in Venice.
Hattie Winston, Ted Lange, James Pickens Jr, Lynne Conner and Singer and actress Eloise Laws are among the celebrities who will be taking part. Eloise and actress and LATWF founder Adilah Barnes stopped by our studios to talk about the festival. Eloise returns to the festival to host and perform after being honored there last year.
Adilah says the festival has outlived three theaters that they have presented in. Over the course of 24 years, the LAWTF has presented over 500 women from around the world. They also have an education arm that has served over three thousand young people in LAUSD schools and they have worked with seniors and people who are incarcerated in their outreach efforts.
Twenty talented women will grace the stage with their solo performances over the four days of the festival. Listen in to hear all the details.
