âThe Imagine-a-nation of Lala Childâ One Actress ~ Thirty Characters ~ 57 Standing Ovations! Rivera Sun in her nationally acclaimed solo show! Welcome to 1890 Lovely, Kansas, a drought-stricken all-negro town, where a Chinese man rides a dust storm into ten-year old Lalaâs home and wins her Mamalouâs heart, spurring the gossipy shock of everybody else. Lalaâs lyrical and imaginative childâs eye lends fresh perspective to ages old racial issues, washing us all with the sweet wisdom of an old soul in a small body. Full of humor and lively dancing, adults and children alike enjoy this gem of a performance. âThere is much to laugh at in these stories, and much to move one to tears. There is the wisdom of old souls and the hormonal foolishness of boys. . .there is small-town pettiness and the overwhelming vastness of a star-filled prairies sky. Cook writes and utters sheer poetry.ââSanta Cruz Sentinel
