Shout Out to Monique Lisa and Her Cast
While I was in Washington DC making my first visit, I got a chance to see some old friends in the off-Broadway stage production, All My Struggles. It’s a “drama with a twist of comedy” about about a teenage girl who wants to sing in her church, but a conflict with her mother is holding her back.
The show was debuting in Washington DC during the DC Black Theater Festival. It was written, directed and produced by Monique Lisa. I know Monique and her husband Dameon from many years ago when they were just teenagers, and it’s so great to see young people grow up and do positive things.
My whole trip to DC was as a “tag-along” with a longtime friend of mine that’s in the show since I had not visited DC before. Of course I took a few photos since I had my camera. I think their next stop is Orlando FL in August and then they will be back in the NY area.
