Lula Washington‘s concert is Friday, June 8 @ 8:30 pm at the newly renovated John Anson Ford Theatre complex, 2580 Chauenga Boulevard East, Hollywoood CA 90068. Discount tickets are available by using the code: LULAFRIEND. The Box Office number is 323-461-3673.
Olga Garay, interim Executive Director of the Ford, funded LWDT to secure the new works from Kyle Abraham and David Rousseve; and to get an update from Rennie Harris of his previous work for Lula, called “Reign.”
“The idea was all Olga’s,” said Lula. “She called one day and offered this to us. It was a wonderful surprise.”
Olga said she got the idea when she realized that Rousseve, Abraham, and Harris, had all been in Los Angeles teaching at UCLA. She thought it would be fantastic to connect them with Lula, whose company has been a local icon since 1980.
