LOLPERA Gives One Final West Coast Performance
 

After selling out all of its performances in Long Beach and Los Angeles,
LOLPERA, by Ellen Warkentine and Andrew Pedroza, is presenting one last show on July 26 at The Art Theatre as an epic fundraising event before going to New York City. the show premiered to sell-out crowds at The Garage Theatre in Long Beach, California in October of 2011, and to more sell-out crowds at The Hollywood Fringe Festival in June of 2012.


Set in dystopian Catcotopia, it is the story of our epik quest for meaning in our modern world…told entirely through stupid cat pictures. LOLPERA is an epik clash between low-brow humor and high art; a “gesamtkunstwerk” that asks the important questions about this our modern world: Can we find meaning in the meaningless? Will what we create ultimately destroy us? Can we really haz Cheezburger? The year is 2084. Our only means of communication: cat pictures. Welcome to our Brave Mew World. LOLPERA, 8pm at The Art Theatre, 2025 E. 4th Street, Long Beach, 90814. Click Here for tickets
