Little Toni's restaurant is right next door and is good for both individuals and groups. Also open very late most days, which is very useful for after the show.

It was nicely done. The acting was very good and it was well written. A younger crowd could related and an older one remembers what it was like.

I had a hard time with this one. Maybe because the writing is geared towards twenty-somethings who are still finding their way through life. The journey may be real, but don't make a play about it unless there's something poetic, new, or...continued

Description

Above the Curve Theatre presents the world premiere of Beneath Her Feet by Laura Birek and Jason Matthews, directed by Erica Brauer.

Beneath Her Feet was conceived as a full-length play with local writers and first time collaborators, Birek and Matthews, writing alternating scenes about the same set of characters. The play follows Stacey and Ally, two young Angelenos desperately trying to keep a firm footing as their worlds shift and tumble around them. Stacey’s story (written by Birek) intertwines with Ally’s (written by Matthews) throughout the course of a not-so-typical Friday in Los Angeles. While Ally searches for a new job and new love, Stacey must confront her increasingly unstable status quo, and both women are faced with choices that can change everything—for better or for worse.

“It is a very real show, with which people will easily identify,” said Erica Brauer, director and president of Above the Curve Theatre, “ and it was exciting to work on a piece that reflects the unique styles of both its writers while also presenting a cohesive story.”
