The Diamond Monologues Tour Sparks Discussions on Women Empowerment, Community Building

The Diamond Monologues Tour Sparks Discussions on Women Empowerment, Community Building

LOS ANGELES, CA---(March 31, 2017)--- As a creative, our passion is to create. But as a creative who is meant to inspire, the work that is put out will take time to perfect. This is how the process went for San Bernardino native author and playwright T’ana Phelice when she had the idea to bring her books to the stage two years ago. She would audition girl after girl only to find out that they weren’t as serious and that they just didn’t have that “it” factor.

It’s been a long process, but Phelice has finally found her DREAM TEAM of six amazing women who are not just passionate about their craft, but believe in Phelice’s production, The Diamond Monologues. Each dynamic, millennial woman that is in the play has been touched and inspired by the character that they play which makes it easier for them to bring her to life.

"There’s so many women including myself, that go through similar things that are acted out within the play and it’s not talked about or it’s ignored unless of course we’re talking amongst each other,” Asia Smith, who plays Tia, explains.

To give those a brief of what to except from the play without giving too much away, the audience will definitely walk away feeling changed! You will cry, laugh, and nod your head in agreement as you listen to the story of each girl. The stories are our real life testimonies that we go through as women. From relationships, careers, family life, and friendships—I can guarantee you that you will hear your story in The Diamond Monologues.

The Diamond Monologues finished two successful and sold out shows in Ontario, California and now they are headed to Los Angeles, California on Saturday, April 22 where they will debut their play and change lives at the Little Casa Theater located at 2101 E. 1st Street in Los Angeles at 6 p.m. Beverages will be served and Lady Adrienne Braxton from "Braxtons Back" on StudioW Buzz will be opening up the stage play with some words of encouragement and her personally testimony how she overcame great barriers that made her the strong woman that she is today.
