Old World Tradition Meets New World Comedy in Armenia Mania!

It’s the immigrant experience from an L.A. point-of-view! On Saturday, August 2 and Sunday, August 3 8 p.m., traditional theater meets untraditional performances in a cutting comedy about three women’set on blending ancient traditions with first generation ambitions.

Los Angeles County holds bragging rights as being home to one of the largest and fastest growing ethnic groups in the United States ‘s the Armenia’s. The city of Glendale in particular, seems to be the nucleus of this vibrant, energetic community.

Like many immigrant groups, this community can sometimes appear to be closed to those outside of the culture. Not anymore! Sona Movsesian and company blows the door wide open with a cheeky presentation that many viewers will find illuminating, as well as just plain funny.

The gulf that sometimes separates us will be revealed as being nothing but an imaginary line, as themes of growing up in a tight knit family and community, as well as all the aches and pains of growing up in L.A. are explored.

If you’re looking for a laugh-out-loud experience, then make sure to circle these two nights on your calendar!
