"Poverty on Trial" Artist Revina Amos
Poverty on Trial Image.png

It is a true story about a homeless mentally ill man who was falsely arrested and convicted of manslaughter in Calcasieu Parish.  All proceeds from this exhibition goes toward his legal defense.  I am also hoping someone will write a play about his story to bring awareness to the mental health needs in the criminal justice system.

The oeuvre of Revina embodies strong feminine essence.  Her robust artwork vividly mirrors the strength she found within herself, as she proudly served as an Airborne Paratrooper in the United States Army.   As a Gulf War Veteran, she continued to serve as the Administrative Lead for the Operations Support Group element of the Missile Defense Agency, GMD Program while residing in Alaska.   Revina is a self-taught artist who started exploring the intersection of art and healing as self-therapy for severe PTSD.  She has traveled extensively throughout the United States.   Abroad, she has explored Paris, London, Spain, Rome, Korea, Mexico, Jamaica, Canada and Saudi Arabia and Iraq.  Revina is a multimedia artist that uses expressive colors and textures to tell stories inspired by her travels and experiences. She paints, draws, photographs, and creates collages.

CLOSER by Patrick Marber
Facebook Banner_LRECloser.jpg

Four lives intertwine over the course of four and a half years in this densely-plotted, stinging look at modern love and betrayal. Closer, by Patrick Marber, chronicles the love affairs, rivalries, seductions, and betrayals of four characters (two men, two women) in a spare, intense style -- sometimes coarse, sometimes obscene, but highly entertaining and evoking. Starring Trevor Chapman, Logan Domingue, Michelle Colón, and Austin Broussard. Directed by Kevin White and Produced by The Lauren-Reilly Eliot Company. Play contains strong language and themes. Adults only.

Winner of the 1998 Olivier Award for Best Play and the 1999 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Foreign Play.

The Marvelous Wonderettes by Roger Bean

This smash Off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom, where we meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with classic ‘50s hits including “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” and “Lipstick on Your Collar.” In Act II, the Wonderettes reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together. Featuring over 30 classic ’50s and ’60s hits, The Marvelous Wonderettes will keep you smiling in this must-take musical trip down memory lane!
