Also on Saturday, earlier in the day at 4 p.m., Heritage Square and Yale Cabaret Hollywood present a environmentally charged reading of a one-act play by Dyanne Asimow. The reading takes place at Heritage Square, 3800 Homer Street, Los Angeles, near the Avenue 43 Exit of the 110 Freeway.
The one-time only reading is adapted for the Victorian environment of Heritage Square. All proceeds ($10, or free for Heritage Square Members) will help fund LA's unique living history Heritage Square Museum.
"As the 20th century dawns, Victoria, an eccentric aging émigré ballerina; Grace, a young ambitious danseuse; and Monsieur Serkiev, legendary choreographer, once Victoria's mentor and love, join in picaresque roundelay of longing loss and illusion."
For reservations, call (323) 225-2700 ext. 223
