RETURN TO LALA LAND
Written by Mark Blickley
Produced by Roslyn McKay
Stage Manager: Allison Hohman
La Forrest Cope (Lala), Freddie Duggard, Chris Fougere
Return to Lala Land is the creative nonfiction tale of a highly successful musician/songwriter/performer struggling to tear down borders and construct boundaries between her present day artistry and a golden past that threatens to crush her under its glittery weight.
Burning up the Billboard Charts with four top-five songs in two years, Lala's explosive songwriting talent helped launch several careers, most notably, Whitney Houston's. The fiery "YOU GIVE GOOD LOVE" earned LaForrest Cope (a.k.a. LaLa), a Grammy Award nomination for Best R&B Song and an ASCAP Honors Award for Most Played Songs in the 1985 Survey Year (an award she shared with Prince), while giving Whitney her first #1 single.
Lala toured as a backup singer and keyboard player on Michael Jackson’s Victory Tour. She has played, sang, written for and/or produced artists as diverse as Ice Cube, Lauryn Hill, Christina Aguilera, Luther Vandross Melba Moore, Freddie Jackson, Stephanie Mills, Johnny Gill and Burt Bacharach. Ms. Cope recorded a vocal duet with Jermaine Jackson for the Summer Olympics Album on Arista Records and executive produced by Clive Davis. Her second solo album, Lala Means I Love You, was released on Motown Records.
Since 1974, LINE has been a staple of the 13th Street Rep and now the play returns with a young vibrant cast reflecting how the world and its social mores have changed since the 70s.
The 1967 one-act play by Israel Horovitz, his first play produced. It is an absurdist drama about five people waiting in line for an unknown event and their struggle to be first on this hypothetical line.

The Accidental Pervert
By Andrew Goffman
Directed by Charles Messina
This side-splitting one-man show tells the true story of a boy whose odyssey into manhood begins after discovering his father’s XXX-rated video tapes, which become an ever-present part of his life.
Andrew Goffman takes his audience on a self-deprecating journey into a world of video vixens, personal fantasies, and dirty movies with no redeeming value whatsoever. But he does find redemption for himself, in the end, through real-life relationships and a perspective that comes with time, distance, and an outrageous sense of humor.
AUDIENCES ARE SAYING:
"Comically, it was a FIVE-STAR performance."
“OK. We only laughed for 80 of 90 minutes!”
“This show was absolutely hysterical!
It's a definite MUST SEE! “
"It's been a long time since I've had this much fun!"
THEATRE BLOG AT LEILABRANDT.COM:
This is a coming of age memoir about sex, the loss of innocence, and exchange of values that comes to us all with maturity. The subject is a cache of pornography, discovered by 11 year old Andrew and the role it plays in his life until fantasy gives way to a better reality. It could be anyone's story. The Accidental Pervert is a delightful evening out; come for the fun.
