The Columbine Project

LOFT Ensemble-Sherman Oaks
13442 Ventura Blvd Sherman Oaks

Praised by L.A theatre critics, survivors and families of the victims, The Columbine Project was created from direct correspondence with people involved in and affected by the event. Storiale happened to be driving from L.A. to Chicago in 1999 when he heard news of the Columbine shooting and out of morbid curiosity, he stopped in Littleton, Colorado just days after the massacre. What he saw in that community in those early days left an impression. Storiale embarked on a journey of extensive research and reaching out to those involved with the incident, and put what he had learned into a collection of scenes and monologues, all based in the facts as he learned them from direct interviews, journal entries, police reports, etc., and The Columbine Project was born. Beyond its local runs in 2009, 2010 and 2014, The Columbine Project has also been produced and praised in New York and Baltimore. The show returns to L.A. during a time where society needs perspective and solace in regards to gun violence in schools now more than ever.

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...Director Bree Pavey’s staging is dynamic, and the ensemble offers astoundingly heartfelt and organic performances. The problem is that the world has moved on: other disasters have eclipsed Columbine, most recently the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shootings in Parkland, Florida. Care must be taken; we need to realize that just feeling sorry for the characters and regretting the situation is not enough to prevent the next shooting."
