Will Work for Art
A few nights ago I volunteered to run the concession stand at a local theater. The one woman show that was playing, The Emancipation of Lala by Rivera Sun Cook, was not something I had planned on attending but being able to watch whatever is at the theater is one of the benefits of volunteering and so of course I sat in. I enjoyed the play, but that isn’t what I’m planning to write about. What stuck with me more was something that was said during the discussion with the playwright that took place following the show.
