Taking Flight

Taking Flight is another amazing San Diego Rep Theater production, adding to their already stellar list of terrific plays and wonderful actors that I have have the great fortune to see this last season [photo is from the San Diego Rep site].
I got to see this play last night, as the last in our series of season plays. I have nothing but accolades and rave reviews for this one-woman show. Adriana Sevan, actor and playwright, was incredible, with an amazing story to tell. And she tells it stunningly!
Rather than try to articulate a critique, let me share a quote on the play from the Rep's website and PR materials. It really says it better than I could have. The memories of 9-11 are poignant (can we EVER forget the sight of the Twin Towers collapsing, and the pain, suffering, and death, AND the stories of heroes), yet the humor, the emotion, and the joy of discovery are palpable in this story of healers, shamans, and women who care. A real celebration of life!

And Sevan is FABULOUS. The last night, unfortunately, is April 1. If you can...go!!

"A deeply compelling, truly funny and sexy tale that celebrates the life force, through stunning encounters with healers, shamans and women who care. Adriana is a Dominican - Armenian New Yorker turned Californian with an amazing story to tell. Adriana was all set to play Maid of Honor for her best friend Rhonda, when Rhonda was caught beneath the Twin Towers on September 11. Rhonda emerged barely alive. What could Adriana do? The answer is her extraordinary story about finding the Goddess within, while dedicating her life to saving her best friend. Adriana shows us how one woman's love can make a giant difference in our post - 9-11 world. Laugh, cry and cheer with Adriana as she discovers why the heart is the strongest muscle in the body.

Consider getting season tickets. Up until early June you can save 36% and the plays are excellent (and the prices are almost too reasonable to resist). You won't regret it.


I am off to Idyllwild this weekend. I will write and post pics when I return. Have a great weekend!

Taking Flight is an incredible play, Adriana is an incredibly talented actress and playwright. The life-changing experience she has shared and what she has done and continues to do with the life challenge she was faced with is a gift - a must-see play. I laughed, cried and was so deeply touched.
