Description

Previously featured at the West Angeles Performing Arts Theatre, in Los Angeles, CA, Let’s Talk Church is centered on problems and issues that take place in the church.  The setting takes place in Hollywood as a “Live” taping. Yes, Oprah has gone off the air, and Mary “Liz” Paige is the new DIVA of Talk Shows. She cleans, sings, directs, and acts.  After the opening monologue, various guests are interviewed. Some of the guests include Dr. O. Phila (Physiologist), Deacon Delicious, Ms. Schizo, Rejocekia (played by 1st Lady Elizabeth Rhone), The Lark Sisters (they think they can sing, but can’t sing a lick), and the CEO of The New Church Channels (who has spiritual turret syndrome). In the final scene the Mt. Sinai Church Choir __(Pastored by Elder Terence Rhone) __sings and Liz Paige shares her personal testimony.
