"It is rare for parents and children to be able to see a play together without one or the other of them feeling that they are performing an act of self sacrifice....If the current production, Walking the Tightrope, is an indication of what is to come, LA theater lovers have a lot to look forward to.

The play is a poem, brought to life by storytelling actors, a touching and subtle set, live piano music, and occasional old film clips as backdrop. All of this works to illustrate the repeated refrain: Every year some things stay the same and some things change."

BACKSTAGE WEST Walking the Tightrope is a Sweet Summer Dream

Director Debbie Devine and her cohorts have fashioned from scratch something incredibly special, suggesting the feeling of a sweet summer dream staged by Federico Fellini....As Esme and her grandfather, the gifted Paige Lindsey White and Mark Bramhall are brilliant casting choices..."

"Walking the Tightrope... discusses personal loss in a gentle way and deserves an audience.  The crew of very young theatre associates acting as hosts and hostesses shows that this special company’s main goal is to involve their local community as well as the world community."




audience review :)


"Sometimes, but not very often, the planets align, the Gods smile down, and all the pieces fall into place creating a perfect storm of creative energy that brings about a truly miraculous result. That is certainly the case with Walking the Tightrope. Ms. Devine and her creation are nothing short of brilliant and it was a privilege to have had the honor to live her vision."

It sounds like you have grasped it's heart and I am very sorry I'm not there to see it. I love what you guys say about the work you do and am very proud to be associated with it. Long may you thrive!

Bryan Davidson Hope you all had a great opening weekend! I saw the show in previews and it's really lovely and thought-provoking. Not the typical "Theater for Young Audiences" by any stretch.
