Life Stories presents…AMERICANA @Theater Row (April 25-26)

On April 25th, the Life Stories Youth Ensemble premiered AMERICANA, 5 Short Plays exploring the American Dream to a sold out audience at The Acorn Theater at Theater Row.  The talented ensemble brought the house down with their brilliant performances.

As one audience member put it,

“Ever since I left the theater, I’ve been a bit dizzy and emotional as a result of power of the ensemble’s truly courageous and life-changing work. Each and every cast took bold risks, made brave choices and allowed us to be witness to it.”

Check out pictures from the world-premier performance of AMERICANA.
