Critically Acclaimed Production "ALMOST, MAINE" by John Cariani returns to Los Angeles with Stellar Cast
Opening December 5th through December 21st in a limited engagement at The Hudson Mainstage, 539 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA. 90038.
Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States – It’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So, it’s just…Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. ALMOST, MAINE: It’s love. But not quite. In this Los Angeles production, director Martin Papazian leads his ensemble and audiences alike through the story of nine couples falling in and out of love in this beautifully poetic and magical love story.

Their biggest hits include "You're Still a Young Man", "So Very Hard to Go","Soul With a Capital S", "Soul Vaccination", "What Is Hip?", and "Don't Change Horses (in the Middle of a Stream)."

The Temple of Art exhibit and book premieres at La Luz De Jesus Gallery on December 5, 2014 with an artist reception from 8-11pm. Temple of Art is an ongoing art and photography project over two years in the making. What started as a unique conversation between photographer Allan Amato and over 50 artists evolved into a book being published by Baby Tattoo, a bi-coastal gallery show, a prime-time panel at Comic-Con 2014 and a feature length documentary successfully funded by Kickstarter. The Temple of Art provides an insightful look into the lives of some of our favorite working artists by following the progress of the collaborations from conception to completion, documenting the process in the film and book and finally revealing the works in person at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. The gallery is located at 4633 Hollywood Boulevard Los Angeles, CA. 90027 and Temple of Art will run until December 28.
