The Hilarious Clean Start @ Casa 0101

Boyle Heights' award winning theatre company Casa 0101 kicks off their 15th Quinceanera season with flare with the hysterically funny Clean Start a great new show written by Kathy Fischer & Josefina Lopez (Real Women Have Curves).  Kathy Fischer also very ably directs.  The laugh fest features the colorful talented cast of Kim Chase, Ingrid Oliu, Maria Russell, Marina Gonzalez Palmier & Robert Jekabson & tells the story of a destitute Beverly Hills matron Parker Reed (a very funny Kim Chase) who moves in with her very loyal level headed Latina maid  Rosario Rodriguez (the very likable Ingrid Oliu) who lives in East L.A. with her sexy immature sister Blanca Rodriguez (the hilarious Maria Russell) & her smart ass old school mom Dona Maria Rodriguez  (the equally hilarious Marina Gonzalez Palmier).   Robert Jekabson also appears in the supporting role of  Polish immigrant Vladimir the neighbor/handyman who man crazy Blanca has the hots for & does a very nice job.  Besides being very funny the storyline also featured some poignant life lessons as well.  The charismatic performers have great comedic timing & energy so be sure to see Clean Start this weekend when it finishes it's 3 week run.  Kudos to dancing/prancing stagehands Catalina Adragna & Julius Bronola who score laughs while changing sets.  Show times are as follows:  Friday February 13 at 8pm, Saturday February 14 at 3pm & 8pm & Sunday February 15 at 5pm & 8pm.  Definitely worth checking out & if you don't feel like driving Casa 0101 is a quick 7 minute walk from the Mariachi Gold Line station.   Visit for more information.  Highly recommended!  HH
