MESSAGE FROM TRUE RODRIGUEZ:

(photo credit: Makeup & MOOR)

True Fb image (photo credit Makeup and MOOR)My love of theatre was ignited during a school trip to see Cats on Broadway. I was so intrigued by how we were transported to this new world, filled with Cats wandering around the audience, the line between cast and audience blurred.
I was fortunate enough to attend many plays after that. The most influential being Celia. Here was a play about one of my she-roes, written in Spanglish, filled with the music my grandmother blasted on the radio while cleaning. I was home, but I was still looking for a story that matched my own. One that I could relate to that didn’t have a famous central character. A play that would speak directly to the girl in me, written by someone like me, for someone like me.
After years of searching, of wishing, of disappointment and a little anger, I decided to write it myself. And so “In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows” was born.”

WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE A LOVED ONE TO SEE “In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows”:

In Defense May 9th Image“In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows” will be THE perfect Mother’s Day gift for yourself or any mother or daughter (fully grown or coming-of-age). So in celebration of mothers, womanhood, or sisterhood, treat yourself, your Mother, aunt, sister, cousin, daughter, and female or male friends…

Grab anyone whom you know who would appreciate a beautiful and inspiring depiction of the love of a mother for her daughter – the love of a daughter for her Mother – the wisdom of elders – the privilege of ancestry – sisterhood – the bonding and empowering of women (the empowerment that can only come from woman-to-woman through examples and inspiration) – life lessons that we all have faced at some point, and the capacity of growth that comes when true LOVE of self — when the love you can give and receive from another is more beautiful to you and matters more to you than anything else.

If you have the understanding, heart, and compassion to experience this type of togetherness with someone you care for (mom, aunt, cousin, sister, wife, husband, lover, friend) — to spend such a special occasion with — then you want to give them a gift that keeps on giving. You want to provide them with the gift of ART for Mother’s Day! And “In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows” is just that gift of ART that will give you LIFE!

{Review} “New York, New York — The mother-daughter relationship is readily explored in the premiering theatrical play, “In Defense of Glitter and Rainbows,” written by debuting Playwright Viviann True Rodriguez. With an over-saturation of male and female relationships in the theatre, Rodriguez, wanted to flesh out the foundation of a female-female connection, especially in Women of color. The origin of most female connections is the mother-daughter link and there is hardly a stronger bond, understanding, or basis.”
