Out and About Town

It's been a while since The Actor's Choice has been on location because of the pandemic, but our correspondent covered this historic occasion at The Petersen Automotive Museum. The first Black off-road driver in the famous Baja 1000, Felix Giles, was honored with a one year exhibit at the legendary museum, and we were there to witness the trophy truck being delivered. Mr. Giles is also a Navy veteran, engineer, philanthropist and has done a little acting on the side. Congratulations! 

           It's Always Fun Here!

Monday's Guests on....

         The Actor's Choice

Please join #TheActorsChoice on Monday, October 5, 2020 at 11:00 AM PST/2:00 PM EST as actress Rose Weaver and actor, director, producer and stuntman Jeff Torres talks with host #RonBrewington.

 

Rose Weaver is an American actress, singer, director and writer in Rhode Island. Weaver is described as a "major figure in Rhode Island entertainment, and she is known for her role in the film Poetic Justice.

Weaver grew up in McDonough outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Her family were sharecroppers. She was one of the first black people to attend Joseph Emerson Brown High School, an all-white high school in Atlanta, Georgia and participated in the Emory University Upward Bound program in her youth.


She began singing in Boston and Rhode Island clubs in the 1970s, and graduated from Wheaton College in 1973 and was awarded a three-year fellowship by Trinity Repertory in 1973. She spent 11 seasons acting at Trinity, including roles as Silvia in Two Gentleman of Verona, Dussie Mae in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, and Billie Holiday in Lady Sings the Blues. In 1994, she returned to Trinity in 1994 for another 11 seasons, taking roles such as the Witch in Into the Woods and Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill. In addition to her time at Trinity, Weaver was the producer and host of the television program "Sunday Sunday" on WJAR TV in the 1980s.

In 1993 she played Aunt Audrey in the film Poetic Justice alongside Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur. Weaver continues to act, sing, write and direct. She performed at the state inauguration in Rhode Island, 1999. In 2000, she earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from Brown University. She was an artist in residence at Brown University's Rites and Reason Theatre in 2015 where she developed her play about Alzheimer's disease and memory, Skips The Record. Her play Menopause Mama, which she wrote, directed and starred in toured internationally and earned her a fellowship in play writing at the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts in 2017.

Jeff Torres plays the role of Jeff, one of the lead characters in the supernatural thriller House of Demons. The movie was recently released on Amazon Prime. Torres directed, starred and produced the short film ONCE. The short was created and completed during the Covid-19 Lockdown. The film will soon be participating as part of the film festival circuit. Recently, Torres was part of the Company of Angels What's Going on? Virtual Short play festival. There he directed the play Stay with Me and starred in the play No Kaps. Additional work includes Pitch (FOX), Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders (CBS) and Telenovela starring Eva Longoria.

Inspired by Marvin Gaye’s 1970’s hit song, these 5-Minute Plays are set during the uprising in Los Angeles and the world that’s followed the murder of George Floyd by Police in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The unrest, like in 1992, has sparked widespread protests, looting, assault, and arson, all during a worldwide COVID-19 pandemic that has killed over 143,000 people in the United States alone. These plays address not just one aspect of what we’re going through, but rather speak to what happens when you add civil unrest to a pandemic, racism to a quarantine and a mask to social media?

Since 2008, Company of Angels has presented a select group of diverse writers that embrace and reflect on a different City of Angels theme. Past festivals have featured stories from L.A.’s history to its contemporary concerns. Themes have explored L.A hunger, gentrification, the economic recession, the 20th year anniversary of the civil unrest of April 29, 1992, and silent film legend residents of the historic Alexandria Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

 

In 2019, our theme TomorrowLAnd explored the idyllic concept of a tomorrow land and the idealism that nurtured the origins of modern Los Angeles and its eventual future blossoming or decay. Our now postponed 2020 production titled: It's All Relational was to explore the intricacies of human intimate relationships and how living in Los Angeles colors those relationships.
