20 Jan 2018 4:00 PM | Carol Lashof

 Boy meets girl. Nation meets metaphor.

The Melting Pot, a remix for the stage by Carol S. Lashof, will receive a staged reading in Oakland, California on January 20, 2018.

Performances 4 pm and 8 pm at the Temescal Art Center, 511 48th St, Oakland. Tickets are free but advance reservations are strongly recommended as the venue is small:   https://themeltingpot.brownpapertickets.com/

The Melting Pot remixes early 20th century sources, including Israel Zangwill’s wildly popular melodrama of the same name, to tell a quintessentially American love story – Boy meets Girl, and Nation meets Metaphor. It was presented as a developmental reading at PCSF in October 2017.

The reading will be directed by Those Women Productions' Artistic Director Elizabeth Vega and will feature original music by Berkeley jazz musician and composer Erika Oba, performed by Debbie Carton and Audrey Ronningen. The cast includes TWP Associate Artists Lily Tung Crystal* and Norman Patrick Johnson as well as Grace Liu, Roberta Morris, Jack Nicolaus, Sydney Schwindt, Louel Senores, and Charles Winter.*
