We kick off our 2013 season with Let’s Talk! followed by a mixer! Let’s Talk is a fun ‘Talk and Show’ where we chat with our guests and catch a glimpse of the person behind the art, and then they will treat us to a sample of their work. Come join us and talk to our guests after in the Meet&Greet, and stay for the LuckyChaos Kickoff Mixer! We would love to talk to you about our upcoming shows and the inspiration behind them.
Talk show guests are:

ABOUT LuckyChaos Theater Projects: LuckyChaos Theater Projects produce works by or about Asian Americans as well as other under-represented communities. We hope to increase dialogue about these experiences through the performance arts. Our projects are stories from a different point of view and range from published works to original works including submissions from the community. We explore all mediums including scripted, experimental, improv and movement. Come checkout our shows – every 1st and 2nd weekends of the month at Salvage Vanguard Theater (Studio) – Fri/Sat 8pm and 1st Sat 10pm. “Create Art. Create Identity. Create Possibilities. Play On!”
