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.

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.
