Puerto Rico has been in the news a lot recently. The hurricane season has brought much angst to this usually joyful Caribbean island.

So, when I heard that actress and playwright Lala Costa was re-mounting "Calling Lala" as part of the সাম্প্রতিক SoloFest in Los Angeles – I was intrigued.

She originally created the live solo প্রদর্শনী back in 2016 as a love-letter to her Mom and fellow Puerto Ricans. Now, in the wake of all the devastation on the beloved island where she was born, would her upbeat, interactive exploration of Boricua flavor be even আরো powerful to audiences?

To find out, I asked Lala Costa a few questions:


Tell us about your live solo প্রদর্শনী “Calling Lala.”

LALA: "Calling Lala" is comedic look at my Puerto Rican experience, from moving to the States to the current state of affairs. The প্রদর্শনী is surrounded দ্বারা characters, music, dancing and dreams. I am accompanied দ্বারা my friend DJ Sku, who created the beats and সঙ্গীত for the show. I also encourage the audience to interact and dance, and I've had some interesting moments dancing with the audience.

What inspired আপনি to create the show?

LALA: My Mom inspired me to create the show. She has always inspired me to express myself in creative ways.

Has your approach to the material changed since আপনি first performed it?

LALA: The প্রদর্শনী premiered Off-Broadway, at New York's Theatre Row during United Solo's Theatre Festival, which was a goal I had set for myself and the experience was extraordinary. Since then, I remind myself of the excitement of the first প্রদর্শনী and to have even আরো fun during each performance. Rehearsals are the most important part for me so that I have আরো freedom each time I perform. During rehearsals I improvise with Sku and come up with new moments for each performance. Then improvised moments that come up during the performance are then rehearsed for the following show. The প্রদর্শনী keeps evolving.

What message do আপনি hope audiences take away?

LALA: The প্রদর্শনী started out as a funny প্রণয় letter to my Mom and fellow Puerto Ricans. Now, in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, it has emerged even আরো relevant, shining a much needed spotlight on the island and its people -- such as being recognized as American. I want to put the Rican in AmeRICAN. I also want the audience to feel inspired to dream as well cherish what they already have in their lives.

Are আপনি surprised দ্বারা the response to the show?

LALA: I'm not surprised at all the laughs and tears because that's what I was going for. I am surprised at how specific audience members are when they come up to me about a particular way I ব্যক্ত something অথবা certain gesture I made and how much they laughed because of it. That's when I realize how connected they are to the material. They are very detailed, and I am very impressed.

What’s the biggest lesson আপনি learned from creating this show?[/b]

LALA: Being on stage is like life, আপনি have to be ready for anything.

And, now just for fun:
Who’s your পছন্দ actor/actress?


LALA: Melissa Leo. I got to meet her and she was lovely. And, Laurie Metcalf (It's a tie!) I have not met her, yet.

What character from the past do আপনি wish আপনি could have played?

LALA: Aurora from "Terms of Endearment”.

Favorite film, TV অথবা theatrical প্রদর্শনী from your childhood.

LALA: Roseanne. The comedic timing was perfection. Can't wait for the reboot. (Would be a dream come true to work on the show).

Tell us one thing that would shock our readers to learn about you.

LALA: I don't know how to ride a bike!

How can অনুরাগী keep up with you?

LALA: My website www.Lalisima.TV link

Thanks, Lala -- we're definitely inspired!

Of course, the প্রদর্শনী must go on – and to prove it 7 Writers, 7 Directors and 7 Actors have all come together to create “L.A. Ronde.”

Elijah Jones, previously known as "Hope Reflects" অথবা "Kinlee And Elijah" - has currently revoked from releasing চলচ্ছবি within the 2018 year. Recently a tweet announced that Jones's new album will be set in Seattle Washington.

We currently still don't know if Jones will be releasing an album but it's নিরাপদ to say that if he is, it won't be released in 2018 with the বছর currently ending. But an মর্দানী স্ত্রীলোক ad recently expressed that Jones will be having a new album and that it will be set in the Northwest with Seattle being the hotspot for filming locations. Jones currently hasn't announced anything on a new album. The ad referenced that the video would release on December 26th 2018.


Take this extremely lightly, We are assuming this is a hoax as Jones surely would have made some announcement to this. But still - A little late বড়দিন present for the new বছর would make us all feel a little uplifted.
