Staged reading series celebrates premiere
WRITTEN BY :   Carol Kearns

DOWNEY – You don’t need a building to have theater.
Well prepared for the evening chill, the audience listened to the introduction of the premiere performance Sunday night of the staged reading series, “Urban Acts: New Plays from the Street.”
The free event, hosted by barbershop Number 34, was a reading of “In Case You Forget” by New York playwright Ben Snyder. Live music and refreshments afterward also commemorated the gala opening of the barbershop.
Co-sponsor Granatas & Tapas restaurant will be the venue for the second play in the series, “La Vida Lucky” by Daniel Houston Davila, May 20 at 7 p.m.
The theater series is free to the public and co-produced by Urban Theater Movement and the Downey Arts Coalition.
