HOODOO LOVE (play by Katori Hall) Premieres In LA **PRESS RELEASE**

New Theater Company to Debut With Katori Hall’s Hoodoo Love
Hollywood, CA (20 January 2012)—AGS Theater, Los Angeles’ newest theater production company, is all set to stage its debut production, their adaptation of award-winning playwright Katori Hall’s dark play, Hoodoo Love. The production will hit the stage on February 2-26 at the Ruby Theater at the Complex, with an 8:00 show on Thursdays-Saturdays and a 4:00pm show on Sundays.

Set in 1930’s Mississippi, Hoodoo Love weaves a fascinating story of love, jealousy, enigma, and voodoo magic. The play has been widely-applauded for its dynamic narrative and skillful use of vivid language to capture the culture and spirit of the Blues. Many have been enraptured by the play’s dark and foreboding atmosphere and the manner by which Hall masterfully blended the tale’s dark elements into a story that is ultimately about perseverance and hope.

AGS Theater’s founder, Michelle Andrea Smith, plays the role of both producer and lead actor in this exciting production. She’ll be gracing the stage as “Toulou”, the female protagonist who escapes from Mississippi’s cotton fields to pursue her lifelong ambition of becoming a blues singer in Memphis.

She’ll be joined on stage by actor Elijah Rock, who plays the male role of “Ace of Spades,” the blues musician who finds Toulou and gives her a chance to find redemption and love. Also joining the cast are Karen McClain,  Rickie Peete,  and Mark Anthony Williams.

The production is under the supervision of renowned director, Richard Lyon, who is well-known for developing such brilliant actors and actresses as Queen Latifah, Shia LaBeouf, and Jennifer Hudson.  Hoodoo Love was the first among Katori Hall’s many plays to be presented on stage, debuting in New York’s West Village in November of 2007.

Hall, who is from Memphis, TN, has since then written a number of major productions, including Hurt Village which won the 2011 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and The Mountaintop, which went on to win the 2010 Olivier Award for Best New Play.

About AGS Theater  AGS Theater is owned and founded by Michelle Andrea Smith, who named the company after her late father, Albert George Smith. It is committed to bringing quality theatrical productions in the Los Angeles area.
