Smoke, Bread! and Escaping Queens by Joe Ortiz
Shelton Theater, San Francisco

SMOKE–The Cabaret. A One-Woman Show, starring Lori Rivera.

Love! it’s not for the faint of heart. The incomparable Lori Rivera brings to lift two endearing characters–the innocent Celeste, looking for Mr. Right with a dangerously open heart, and the worldly Francesca, master of erotic strategy.

Prepare to fall–hard.

Bread!–The Musical

Local writer Joe Ortiz’s culinary magical tale, Bread! The Musical, features 13 original songs. The production forms a sparkling tale of homegrown hubris, potential peril and naturally-rye bread as the bakers obsession tries to replicate his fathers lost recipe at the expense of everyone and most certainly his wife.

Escaping Queens, A Concert Reading of the Full Musical Production

n the shadow of the Queensboro Bridge lies the heart-rending & comic story of one family’s quest for a better life.

Through the eyes of a young boy, we meet a zany cast of jubilant characters—a gambling Puerto Rican father, a nurturing Italian mother, a love-crazed teenager, a lurking neighborhood bookie, and doo wop kids on the street corner—who weave the tale of a desperate escape from New York.
