The Pico Union Project is dedicated to the Jewish principle to “love your neighbor as yourself.” It elevates this teaching into practice in a historic building by bringing diverse cultures together through song, story, art, food and prayer. Pico Union Project is a multi-faith cultural arts center and house of worship founded in 2013 by visionary recording artist, composer and musician Craig Taubman. Pico Union Project aims to help invigorate the community of Los Angeles and reflect the Jewish value of being a light to all nations.
“Sometimes a train wreck is just what your heart needs.”
Seven strangers – a REFUGEE from Libya, a TEENAGE RUNAWAY, an ABUSED BRID, an INDIAN IMMIGRANT ACCUSED OF BEING A TERRORIST, a SINGLE WOMAN WHO FEELS INVISIBLE, a TORNADO VICTIM, and a POET WHO HOPES TO HEAL THE WORLD.
When the train crashes, these people come together, share their secrets, and realize a train wreck may be just what their hearts needed.
Combining physical comedy with hard human reality, Gina Rose Powell creates a beautiful and surprisingly heightened comedy about how we can conquer our fears when we are finally seen and heard.
Going up July 2nd, 8 PM, at the Pico Union Project. Details/Tickets HERE.
