A second-generation Russian Jewish American (sometimes) redhead goes off in search of the mysterious great-grandfather about whom nobody would ever speak. This one-woman tour de force piece is written and performed by Los Angeles-based Stacie Chaiken. whose solo plays have toured in the US and abroad. What critics have said: Chaiken's beautiful writing strategically proffers up pieces of bone and tooth in a scintillating anthropological dig... (LA Weekly) ... a revealing X-ray, in living color, seasoned by laughter and tears, of a young lifetime devoted to an absorbing search for truth. (Backstage) ... a talented, likable, energetic storyteller with lots of stage savvy and moxie.... (The Hollywood Reporter) ... fascinating storytelling ...(Daily Variety) Chaiken is the founder of LA-based What’s the Story? Studio, where she works with writers and performers who are wrestling with personal story. She is on the performance faculty at University of Southern California, and has toured internationally as a Fulbright Scholar in the field of Performance and Story. Her new play The Dig: death, Genesis + the double helix is scheduled for a fall 2013 premiere. Chaiken will be teaching a two-day personal story workshop at RoCA, Saturday and Sunday, January 19 and 20. For more information: www.whatsthestoryLA.com Looking for Louie is performed with live accompaniment by bassist Ratzo B. Harris. Harris is a 1995 Thelonious Monk Competition semi-finalist and past contributing columnist for Bass Player Magazine.

    So much like listening to my wife's relatives talk about family history. They don't have the same story, but so many of the characters are the same.

    The Rockland Center for the Arts is a small venue, so I would suggest you get your tickets ahead of time as noted in the event details or you can call or check at their link on line, as to how many tickets are still.available

    A tip, for someone who is wondering whether a show like this one is worthwhile, go over to Youtube. Stacie Chaiken has some clips there. I would guess most artists like her would.
