The Whitefire Theatre: Sherman Oaks

Event Overview

(THROUGH MAY 7) Tales of Modern Motherhood, In My Own X-Rated Words, The Quiet Room

(Los Angeles, CA November 16, 2018) Dynamic, award-winning solo-actress Pam Levin will launch 2019 with something that hasn’t been done at Sherman Oaks, Whitefire Theatre Solofest 2019. She will perform three plays on three different days. On January 16th, Levin brings back her original hit Tales of Modern Motherhood which she performed to sold out audiences off-Broadway, at the Santa Monica Playhouse and as the headline performance for last year’s Solofest. She will perform Fredrica Duke’s deliciously raunchy In My Own X-Rated Words on February 7th.  On March 6th, she returns with a very special performance of Michelle Giannini’s The Quiet Room. Winner of the "Best Solo Production" 1999 ADA Awards, Los Angeles. Pam Levin is thrilled to reprise the role of Sissy Taglioni 20 years later for this ONE-NIGHT-ONLY ANNIVERSARY performance.

January 16th at 8 PM

TALES OF MODERN MOTHERHOOD Written and Performed by Pam Levin is a brutal comedy about the FEAR of becoming a parent, and why she seriously considered just settling for a dog. To birth or not to birth, that is the question, but what if, to NOT is a deal breaker? Pam had managed to convince her husband Brett to postpone parenting for 5 years, but now times up and her husbands biological clock is ticking. But Pam has a different strategy SPERM ASSASINATION!!! Tales of Modern Motherhood addresses the good, bad and ugly truth of what happens behind closed doors.

Word on the Street:

“This one woman show is witty, entertaining, poignant, real, raw, all in one; in short, its everything fine theatre should be.” - Review by Bonnie Priever, Curtain Up


"...with the expertise of a Broadway star, Levin delights the audience with stories mothers all over the world can relate to." - Review by Pamela Manganaro, Tolucan Times
                                           
"I absolutely loved this show.  If you happen to have the opportunity to catch Pam Levin and her "Tales of Modern Motherhood" then treat yourself, this show is too wonderful to pass up." Review by Samantha Simmonds-Ronceros, Nohoartsdistrict.com

February 7th, at 8 PM

IN MY OWN X-RATED WORDS Written & Directed by: Fredrica Duke Starring: Pam Levin. Think Sarah Silverman mixed with Chelsea Handler and a splash of Andrew Dice Clay. Fredde Duke shares 24 outrageous, irreverent and laugh-out-loud stories that propel the audience back in time to the sexual revolution. From her public lawn schtup, to being totally desensitized by the overuse of her Hitachi vibrator. This one-woman show recalls an era when anything and everything was possible, “Because it was the 70’s and damn it, I was going to live those years out like the world was going to blow up if I didn’t partake”. –Fredrica Duke A “Deliciously raunchy one-woman show”

Wednesday, March 6th at 8 PM

THE QUIET ROOM, Written by Michelle Giannini explores the inner workings of a manic-depressive, schizophrenic woman, confined in solitary isolation. Where within the four walls of "the quiet room", she amuses herself with imaginary characters, conversations with God and a highly sophisticated soundtrack that plays in her head.  Anything and everything to obliterate the hateful, horrible voices that haunt her mind and break her spirit.

Original reviews: 


"Poignant, funny, dramatic and powerful and then you're laughing once again." -LA WEEKLY

"Levin is a huge presence on stage, filling it with a tightly controlled manic energy that threatens to blow the roof off the venue." - Michele LeTourneau - Winnipeg Free Press

AWARDED:  TOP 10 LIST out of 106 plays at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival.
