“‘Sister Act’ – The Best Show in Town. For the last 20 years or so I have been blessed with the opportunity to see and review literally thousands of performances in Los Angeles, California – everything from tiny black box theatres to the mighty Pantages. In all of that experience not one show was richer in entertainment value than ‘Sister Act’ now playing at Casa 0101 in Boyle Heights, California. A flashy sassy young woman Deloris Van Cartier played with unrelenting perfection by Jacquelin Lorraine Schofield unexpectedly finds herself in severe danger when she observes her evil boyfriend Curtis Jackson played by ‘Best Male Actor’ award-winning Marco Infante commit murder. While the police seek to arrest; try and convict Jackson they find shelter for Deloris in a convent. Now let the wild ride begin. The Mother Superior delivered magnificently by Beverly Crain is far less than pleased having the somewhat wild showboat Deloris Van Cartier now known as Sister Mary Clarence in her convent. Her displeasure grows when Sister Mary Clarence begins to teach the other nuns a far more dramatic way to perform their music. The problem is their church and convent are threatened with closure due to a lack of adequate financial support from their shrinking number of parishioners. As the gap widens between Mother Superior and Sister Mary Clarence it becomes clear that Mother Superior wants Delores gone. But it seems that the music now being delivered by all of the Sisters is being thoroughly enjoyed by and ever-growing number of parishioners. And that fact explains Monsignor O’Hara as played by Omar Mata is brining in considerable money to the church, so much so that it seems the church may very well stay up and running a reality that makes everyone happy.
Every moment in this amazing show presents a never-ending stream of hilarity laced with underlying but significant passion and love. In watching the show it became very clear that everyone involved were committed and in fact did deliver superb performances in every aspect making it a pure joy to watch and hear. And when it comes to hearing, the vocal performance of Jacqueline Lorraine Schofield is consistently sensational, beautiful, powerful and magical. And then there is something about the venue. The Casa 0101 Theater is largely the creation and passion of Artistic Director Josefina López. It brings yet another element of joy and beauty to the unique area known as Boyle Heights in the City of Los Angeles. It is modest in size, about 99 seats I believe although I didn’t count. But it also has on display several very intriguing pieces of graphic art, a pleasant ticket office and snack bar and an overall ambience that exudes pleasantness. In other words it is a very nice place to visit and enjoy life and for most performances it even offers a truly super treat for us Angelenos
Hip hop dance phenoms Jon Boogz and Lil Buck first performed together as street dancers on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica. Boogz – whose background is in popping – and Buck – an expert in Memphis jookin’ – met at an open jam session in LA about 10 years ago. Over the years, their careers have exploded to include collaborations with Madonna (Buck) and Naomi Campbell (Boogz), an Apple AirPods campaign (Buck), an Adidas project in collaboration with Pharrell (Boogz), then as a duo, a VR film directed by Terrence Malick, and an appearance at TED Conference in Vancouver. Buck and Boogz share a concern for larger social issues like mass incarceration, immigration and the destruction of the environment, which they hope to bring to attention of global audiences through the vehicle of dance.
Their most recent collaboration, Love Heals All Wounds, is an evening-length work that addresses these issues, promoting diversity, inclusion and empathy as a uniting force. Their company, MAI (Movement Art Is), uses movement artistry to inspire and change the world while elevating the artistic educational and social impact of dance to reset the spectrum that defines dance in America.
