  Pizza Man at The Loft in Hollywood

Pizza Man

The Loft in Hollywood
5426 Flemish Lane Los Angeles

Step inside a Hollywood loft for an experience where instead of viewing the action from a distance, you become immersed in it! In this site-specific production, the audience themselves are part of the 1980s apartment where Julie Rodgers is on the verge of a breakdown. Her boss made a pass at her that she rejected, so now Julie is without a job, broke, disillusioned, and drinking. Her roommate, Alice, is at an equally low point coping with romantic troubles. The pair of Los Angeles women decide to take revenge on the entire opposite sex, and the unsuspecting pizza delivery man is just the vehicle for this descent into comedic chaos!

"...Giorlando is consistently believable in this occasionally farce-like set of circumstances, which lends great credibility to the play’s climax and resolution. Given the true-to-life setting, production values are, in a word, “realistic.” Lou does a fine job of allowing her cast to utilize numerous spaces around this locale, all of which are within eyesight of her audience. It’s an intriguing way to experience a play that is anchored by a trio of very fine performances."

Accessibly Live Off-Line - Somewhat Recommended

"...Art is varied, and should not be censored (although proper warnings are nice, especially for sexual assault survivors, and the press release billed the play as a “descent into comedic chaos”, neatly leaving out the heft of the plot), but the immature decision to stage a play showcasing sexual assault as a means to let out frustration is as glib as it is reactionary. Combined with the almost passive aggressive pre-show (a projected music video of women singing about how they hate all men and fake advertisements plastered in the restroom showing women dominating men), plus a slew of sexist dialogue (for instance, can we not make fun of a size 2 woman for being fat?), this play misses both of theater’s higher goals – to incite or inspire. If Pizza Man has achieved any of art’s strivings, it is to entertain. But to be entertained by this kind of content makes us as an audience complicit in the apparent endorsement of abuse."
