SAMSKARA IMMERSIVE ART EXPERIENCE, LA

@wisdome.la

@wisdome.la

Deets: Welcome to Wisdome LA - new immersive art park in Arts District

We are dedicated to presenting the avant-garde transformational experiences and unforgettable events in a unique Los Angeles Arts District multiple projection domes setup.

SAMSKARA is an immersive art exhibition featuring works of transformational artist Android Jones. Samskara includes:

  • Full dome mapping projection show

  • Android Jones art gallery

  • Microdose VR experience

  • Interactive photo experience

What is SAMSKARA?
Samskara (sanskrit संस्कार)) is the scope of experiences which we collect through our life journeys: the infinite flow of feelings, actions, ideas, choices, and emotions. Good samskara is driven by positive experiences and deeds, while negative samskara is the result of evil or selfish thoughts and actions.

Samskara allows us to experience inner conflicts, conflicts between people, nations, religions, and generations, through which we evolve to a more industrial world and end up with complete destruction... but total devastation clears the path for rebirth and revival, and the eternal quest for light, magic, goodness and harmony in better, more spiritual, realms. You make the choice...

Hint for the Average Socialite: Tickets are available now!

Thursday

11am - 9pm (Doors close at 8:15pm. Final Samskara showing is 8:30pm)

Deets: Acclaimed shopping, dining and lifestyle destination, The Grove, is excited to welcome Kygo Life, a sound brand founded by internationally acclaimed DJ and producer Kygo, to its collection of Pop Shops this summer. An extension of The Grove’s successful “glass box” pop-up program, which launched the pop-up revolution, Pop Shops are an innovative way for brands to test the physical landscape with short-term residencies in a unique and bespoke setting.

The month-long pop-up will be the brand’s first and only brick-and-mortar space in the US and will showcase Kygo A11/800: the next level in ultramodern noise-cancelling headphones. In addition to the brand’s signature Kygo-approved sound quality, the noise-cancelling functions can be controlled via the Kygo Sound App.

Says Kygo: “I’m super excited about these noise-cancelling headphones. They’re brilliant for blocking out unwanted distractions whether I’m working on new music or just feel like switching off. I can think of no better place than The Grove in Los Angeles to introduce the A11/800 to my fans.”

About Kygo Life
Kygo Life was founded in 2016 with a goal to create high-quality products inspired by Kygo's music and philosophy. Naturally, the sound collection is the area of focus and behind it is a Nordic team of specialists within audio, Bluetooth technology and design that have worked with Kygo in the development and testing of the products, that are used by the artist himself at concerts and in the studio. The products are distributed through KYGOLIFE.COM and retailers. 

Hint For The Average Socialite: Guests can shop Kygo Life at The Grove from July 11 to August 10. For information and hours, please visit www.thegrovela.com.

@petpopexperience

Deets: PetPOP, a pop-up museum featuring pet-themed interactive exhibits for humans, is coming to Los Angeles for Summer 2019. The experience will be open from July 11 – September 30, 2019. Pre-sale tickets are now available at Petpop.me.

In addition to photo-worthy immersive exhibits and art installations, PetPOP aims to drive awareness for animal homelessness and empower pet adoption agencies to help cats and dogs find their forever homes. PetPOP has partnered with local Los Angeles animal organizations including Wags and Walks and Paw Works to host on-site adoptions for their puppies in need. Attendees will have the opportunity to pet and play with the animals in the “Adoption Alley” space of the museum. A portion of the event proceeds will also benefit these agencies.

Founded by Alex Pischalnikov and Joe Kerwin, PetPOP was conceived from their own experience and a love for their animal companions. Alex and Joe both moved to Los Angeles from Chicago to expand their respective entrepreneurial journeys. Along the way, Joe found his best friend in the form of Miniature Schnauzer, Zelda, whose owner had given her up. Alex adopted his German Shepherd puppy, Cleo. Joe and Alex had began attending various pop-up experiences and not before long, PetPop was born.

“We became inspired to create an experience celebrating our love for our furry companions and raise awareness to how many amazing animals need homes,” said Pischalnikov.

Each room of the museum will feature different pet-themed exhibits and experiences. Guests can step into the black-and-white spotted Dalmation infinity room, go for a run in the life-sized hamster wheel, tour human-sized custom built cat and dog houses and so much more! Select spaces such as the Petflix & Chill room will also feature innovative technology with VR experiences.

AN EVENING IN LODGE 49: SEASON 2 PREMIERE, LA

@lodge49

@lodge49

Deets: Created by author Jim Gavin (Middle Men), Lodge 49 is AMC’s critically praised and endearing modern fable about a disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud (Wyatt Russell), who’s drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business. The show finds a lyrical beauty in its Long Beach, California setting, and in the sometimes bruised relationships between its central characters. In season one, Dud finds himself on the doorstep of a rundown fraternal lodge where a middle-aged plumbing salesman and "Luminous Knight" of the order, Ernie (Brent Jennings), welcomes him into a world of cheap beer, easy camaraderie, and the promise of Alchemical mysteries that may—or may not—put Dud on the path to recover the idyllic life he's lost. As series star Wyatt Russell noted, “It really is an all-encompassing show about our lives and the struggles we endure, and the things that we pursue while we’re on this Earth. I always call it the magic of the mundane, of your everyday life, and that’s what we try to capture.”

The Paley Center is delighted to welcome members of the cast and creative team for a special screening and conversation in advance of the series summer premiere.

Who You May Spot: Wyatt Russell, Sonya Cassidy, Brent Jennings, Eric Allan Kramer, Jim Gavin, Peter Ocko

Deets: Building on its long-standing commitment to combat the stigma associated with cannabis, and to help shed light on the important social justice issues surrounding marijuana, Weedmaps today announced that the Weedmaps Museum of Weed will open to the public on August 3, 2019 in Hollywood, California.

“Today in the United States, someone is arrested for non-violent possession of cannabis every 48 seconds,” said Chris Beals, CEO of Weedmaps. “That’s over 650,000 arrests annually, consuming hundreds of millions of dollars and resources from law enforcement efforts. There has been too little discussion of the role that the prohibition played in a number of historical and ongoing social injustices.”

The 30,000 square-foot Weedmaps Museum of Weed is meticulously curated with interactive exhibits, art installations, historical artifacts and more, aiming to shed light on the tie between cannabis prohibition and racially disparate policies in hopes to drive advocacy and reform efforts.

“Our goal with the Weedmaps Museum of Weed is to demystify cannabis and its role in society, and to draw attention to the impact prohibition of cannabis has had on various social groups in the U.S. and beyond,” said Beals.  

Located at 720 North Cahuenga Boulevard in Hollywood, the museum will inhabit seven exhibits and a special Plant Lab section:

●      Pre-Prohibition: Depicts the early history of the many uses of cannabis and hemp.

●      Age Of Madness: Provides a visual look at the hysteria perpetuated by prohibition.

●      Counterculture Revolution: Explores cannabis’ journey into the fabric of the 60s, from the hippie culture to activism.

●      Behind Closed Doors: Takes visitors to the start of the war on drugs, when Richard Nixon introduced the DEA, and the people responded with foundations like NORML.

●      Entrapment: Delves into the Reagan years and the government-driven propaganda that led to systematic mass incarceration of minorities.

●      Dose of Compassion: Shows how the AIDS epidemic drove California’s ballot measure to legalize medical marijuana through a slice of life story.

●      Legalization: A look at how both medicinal and recreational cannabis reform has evolved over the last decade and how pop culture has aided in normalizing cannabis.

●      The Plant Lab: An interactive exhibit that explores everything from cannabinoids to terpenes and the latest technology and breakthrough medical research that can help shape the future of the plant and its role in society.

“Visitors to the Weedmaps Museum of Weed will experience an accurate, unfiltered exploration into the world of cannabis throughout history,” said Beals. “The Weedmaps Museum of Weed will combine all the immersive elements you’d expect to find in the world’s finest museums across multiple categories, including cultural, fine art and natural history. There will also be plenty of artistic installations for those who want to share meaningful moments socially.”

Developed in partnership with VIRTUE, the Los Angeles-based creative agency born from Vice Media in 2006, the Weedmaps Museum of Weed will be open for a limited time, and will feature a gift shop with a robust collection of custom apparel, commemorative pop culture keepsakes, and a variety of cannabis trinkets. Additionally, the museum will house a full cafe catered by award-winning Crateful Catering. No cannabis or CBD products will be sold on-site.

“Under close guidance of Weedmaps, we developed a completely legitimate museum experience that accurately displays the antique artifacts you'd expect from a natural history museum, the artwork you'd expect in a modern art museum, the interactive education you'd expect from a family museum, and, yes, even all the mind-melting Instagram opportunities you'd expect from a branded weed museum” says Jonathan Santoro, Executive Creative Director, Virtue LA. “By paying respect to the plant, its history, and all those who helped– and hurt– its cultural growth, we think audiences will be blown away by just how wild the truth is.”   

Beals adds, "Despite increasing efforts to decriminalize cannabis, and overwhelming evidence about its benefits, stigma around weed continues to run deep,” added Beals. “Through the Weedmaps Museum of Weed, we hope to provide visitors with a robust understanding of the highs and lows of cannabis history, and to create a stronger understanding of the importance of this plant and its potential.”

Hint for the Average Socialite: The Weedmaps Museum of Weed will officially open with an exclusive reception on August 1st, followed by a grand opening on August 3rd. Open for a limited time only, the Weedmaps Museum of Weed will close on September 29, 2019.

THE KITCHEN PREMIERE, LA

@KitchenMovie

@KitchenMovie

When: TBC/Monday, August 5, 2019

Hot Spot: Los Angeles, CA

Deets: New York City, 1978. The 20 blocks of pawnshops, porn palaces and dive bars between 8th Avenue and the Hudson River owned by the Irish mafia and known as Hell’s Kitchen was never the easiest place to live. Or the safest. But for mob wives Kathy, Ruby and Claire--played by Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss--things are about to take a radical, dramatic turn. When their husbands are sent to prison by the FBI the women take business into their own hands, running the rackets and taking out the competition…literally.

Now they own the neighborhood.

The gritty, female-driven mob drama “The Kitchen,” from New Line Cinema and BRON Creative, is written and directed by Andrea Berloff, who was nominated for an Oscar for Original Screenplay for “Straight Outta Compton.”

The film also stars Domhnall Gleeson (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”), James Badge Dale (“Only the Brave”), Brian d’Arcy James (“Spotlight”), with Margo Martindale (TV’s “The Americans”), Oscar winner Common (“Selma,” “Marshall”), and Bill Camp (“Vice”), with an ensemble cast including Jeremy Bobb (“Marshall”), E.J. Bonilla (TV’s “The Long Road Home”), Wayne Duvall (“Prisoners”), Annabella Sciorra (TV’s “Daredevil”), Myk Watford (HBO’s “True Detective”).

Berloff’s screenplay was based on the comic book series created for DC Vertigo by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle. The film was produced by multiple Oscar nominee Michael De Luca (“Captain Phillips,” “Moneyball,” “The Social Network”) and Marcus Viscidi (“Rampage”). Serving as executive producers were Richard Brener, Michael Disco, Dave Neustadter, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Elishia Holmes, and Adam Schlagman.

The creative filmmaking team included director of photography Maryse Alberti (“Creed”), production designer Shane Valentino (“Straight Outta Compton”), Oscar-nominated editor Christopher Tellefsen (“Moneyball,” “A Quiet Place”) and costume designer Sarah Edwards (“Ocean’s 8,” Showtime’s “Billions”). The music was composed by Bryce Dessner.

Principal photography took place primarily in and around the film’s setting, New York City’s famed Hell’s Kitchen.

New Line Cinema presents, in Association with BRON Creative, a Michael De Luca Production, “The Kitchen.” Set for release on August 9, 2019, it will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. Rated R for violence, language throughout and some sexual content.

Who You May Spot: Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss

@GoodBoysMovie

@GoodBoysMovie

When: Wednesday, August 14, 2019 @ 6:30PM

Hot Spot: Los Angeles, CA (Location on Members Only site)

Deets: Just how bad can one day get? The creative minds behind Superbad, Pineapple Express and Sausage Party take on sixth grade hard in the outrageous comedy, Good Boys.

After being invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max (Room’s Jacob Tremblay) is panicking because he doesn’t know how to kiss. Eager for some pointers, Max and his best friends Thor (Brady Noon, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire) and Lucas (Keith L. Williams, Fox’s The Last Man On Earth) decide to use Max’s dad’s drone – which Max is forbidden to touch – to spy (they think) on a teenage couple making out next door.

But when things go ridiculously wrong, the drone is destroyed. Desperate to replace it before Max’s dad (Will Forte, The Last Man on Earth) gets home, the boys skip school and set off on an odyssey of epically bad decisions involving some accidentally stolen drugs, frat-house paintball, and running from both the cops and terrifying teenage girls (Life of the Party’s Molly Gordon and Ocean’s Eight’s Midori Francis).

From Point Grey producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the writers of Superbad, Pineapple Express and Sausage Party, and James Weaver (Neighbors), Good Boys, from Universal Pictures and Good Universe, is written by the team of Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (NBC’s The Office, Bad Teacher). Eisenberg also produces and Stupnitsky directs.

GEORGE TAKEI BOOK SIGNING, LA

Deets: Vroman’s Bookstore is pleased to present George Takei signing his graphic memoir, They Called Us Enemy

A stunning graphic memoir recounting actor/author/activist George Takei's childhood imprisoned within American concentration camps during World War II. Experience the forces that shaped an American icon -- and America itself -- in this gripping tale of courage, country, loyalty, and love.

George Takei has captured hearts and minds worldwide with his captivating stage presence and outspoken commitment to equal rights. But long before he braved new frontiers in Star Trek, he woke up as a four-year-old boy to find his own birth country at war with his father's -- and their entire family forced from their home into an uncertain future. In 1942, at the order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, every person of Japanese descent on the west coast was rounded up and shipped to one of ten "relocation centers," hundreds or thousands of miles from home, where they would be held for years under armed guard. They Called Us Enemy is Takei's firsthand account of those years behind barbed wire, the joys and terrors of growing up under legalized racism, his mother's hard choices, his father's faith in democracy, and the way those experiences planted the seeds for his astonishing future.
What does it mean to be American? Who gets to decide? When the world is against you, what can one person do? To answer these questions, George Takei joins co-writers Justin Eisinger & Steven Scott and artist Harmony Becker for the journey of a lifetime. (Top Shelf Productions)

George Takei is known around the world for his founding role as Hikaru Sulu, helmsman of the Starship Enterprise, in the acclaimed television series Star Trek. But Takei's story goes where few stories have gone before. From a childhood spent with his family wrongfully imprisoned in Japanese American internment camps during World War II, to becoming one of the country's leading figures in the fight for social justice, LGBTQ rights, and marriage equality, Mashable named Takei the #1 most-influential person on Facebook, with 10.4 million likes and 2.8 million followers on Twitter.

Who You May Spot: George Takei

STEVE AOKI WITH HOWIE MANDEL, LA

livetalksla.org

Deets: Steve Aoki in conversation with Howie Mandel discussing his memoir, Blue: The Color of Noise.

Steve Aoki is an Asian-American electronic musician, record producer, DJ, and music executive. He has collaborated with artists such as BTS, Daddy Yankee, Migos, Tiesto, Linkin Park, blink-182, Lil Jon, and Fall Out Boy, and has released several Billboard-charting studio albums, notably Wonderland, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronica Album in 2013. His most recent album, Neon Future III, which serves as the third chapter of the Neon Future concept albums, featured Louis Tomlinson, Lil Yachty, Bill Nye, Mike Posner, and many more.  He was born in Miami, FL, and grew up in Newport Beach, CA, and is the founder of The Aoki Foundation, whose primary goal is to support the organizations in the brain science and research areas with a specific focus on regenerative medicine and brain preservation as well as humanitarian causes such as disaster relief, developmental disabilities and animal rights. 

Blue is the remarkable story―in pictures and words―of Steve Aoki, the superstar DJ/producer who started his career as a vegan straightedge hardcore music kid hellbent on defying his millionaire father, whose unquenchable thirst to entertain―inherited from his dad, Rocky Aoki, founder of Benihana―led him to global success and two Grammy nominations.

Ranked among the top ten DJs in the world today, Grammy-nominated artist, producer, label head, fashion designer, philanthropist and entrepreneur Steve Aoki is an authentic global trendsetter and tastemaker who has been instrumental in defining contemporary youth culture. Known for his outrageous stage antics (cake throwing, champagne spraying, and the ‘Aoki Jump’) and his endearing personality, Steve is also the brains behind indie record label Dim Mak, which broke acts such as The Kills, Bloc Party, and The Gossip. Dim Mak also put out the first releases by breakout EDM stars The Chainsmokers and The Bloody Beetroots, as well as the early releases for Grammy-nominated artist Iggy Azalea, in addition to EDM star Zedd and electro duo MSTRKFT.

In Blue, Aoki recounts the epic highs of music festivals, clubs and pool parties around the world, as well as the lows of friendships lost to drugs and alcohol, and his relationship with his flamboyant father. Illustrated with candid photos gathered throughout his life, the book reveals how Aoki became a force of nature as an early social media adopter, helping to turn dance music into the phenomenon it is today. All this, while remaining true to his DIY punk rock principles, which value spontaneity, fun and friendship above all else―demonstrable by the countless cakes he has flung across cities worldwide.

Howie Mandel has served as a judge for a decade on NBC’s hit summer talent competition series, America’s Got Talent. He was also a judge on the global winter edition of the series, America’s Got Talent: The Champions. He currently serves as executive producer and host of the game show Deal or No Deal, which airs on CNBC.  Mandel recently released his first solo special in 20 years Howie Mandel Presents Howie Mandel at the Howie Mandel Comedy Clubon Showtime. He can also be seen in the upcoming second season of his Nat Geo Wild Series Animals Doing Things (June 2019)which he co-hosts with his son Alex. His additional work as a host, actor, and/or executive producer include Take It Alland Howie Do Itfor NBC, Deal With Itfor TBS and Mobbedfor Fox. Previously, Mandel received an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program for Deal or No Dealand a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Game Show Host for the syndicated version of the show. His television work includes the Emmy Award-winning St. Elsewhere, to the animated children’s series Bobby’s World, and countless comedy specials both on cable and network television. He has also hosted his own syndicated talk show, The Howie Mandel Show, and continues to be a mainstay on the talk show circuit. He performs as many as 200 stand-up comedy shows each year throughout the U.S. and Canada. His frank, funny and no-holds-barred memoir, Here’s the Deal: Don’t Touch Mewas a New York Times bestseller. In it he revealed his ongoing struggle with OCD and ADHD, and how it has shaped his life and career.

The mazes on both coasts will also parallel the hit show as it leaps forward to 1985, taking guests on a terrifying excursion through portions of “Stranger Things 3,” which begins streaming July 4 on Netflix. As with the previous mazes, Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort are partnering with Netflix and the creators and executive producers of “Stranger Things” to create authentic representations of the blockbuster series.

Multiple movie-quality mazes based on iconic horror television shows, films and original stories come to life season after season.

@GoldenGlobes

@GoldenGlobes

Deets: The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), dick clark productions (dcp), and NBC will present the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards on January 5, 2020.

Produced by dcp in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide and are one of the few awards ceremonies to include both motion picture and television achievements. Licensing fees obtained from the Golden Globe Awards have enabled the HFPA to support over 80 nonprofit entertainment-related organizations, including educational institutions with scholarships to underrepresented students, film preservation organizations, journalistic organizations committed to freedom of speech, as well as organizations that support disaster relief and humanitarian crises.

NBC’s 2019 Golden Globes telecast, hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh (5.2 rating in adults 18-49, 18.6 million viewers overall) generated a 10-month high among all primetime entertainment programs, delivering the most viewers at that point for any non-sports telecast on a broadcast or cable network since the prior year’s Academy Awards (26.6 million on March 4, 2018). The 2019 telecast went up 4% year to year (5.0 vs. 5.2) while retaining 98% of last year’s total viewer average.

“The HFPA Presents: Globes Red Carpet Live,” the official red-carpet pre-show for the 76th Annual Golden Globe® Awards, garnered over 3 million views. 

About the Hollywood Foreign Press Association
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) was founded in 1943 as the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association (HFCA) by a group of entertainment journalists representing world media in Hollywood, who realized the need to unite and organize to gain the recognition and access to studios and talent accorded to the domestic press. All qualified journalists were accepted, with the bold goal of “Unity Without Discrimination of Religion or Race.” A year later, the HFCA created the Golden Globe Awards which, to this day, the entire membership selects, votes on and awards every year for outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television. Members of the HFPA represent 56 countries with a combined readership of 250 million in some of the world’s most respected publications. Each year, the organization holds the third most watched awards show on television, the Golden Globe® Awards, which has enabled the organization to donate more than $33 million to 80 entertainment-related charities, film restoration, scholarship programs and humanitarian efforts over the last 25 years.

When: Saturday, July 13, 2019

Hot Spot: Los Angeles, CA (Location on Members Only)

Deets: After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw . Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America's Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down. But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves. Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa. 

Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a script by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan, the film is produced by Morgan, Johnson, Statham and Hiram Garcia. The executive producers are Dany Garcia, Kelly McCormick, Steven Chasman, Ethan Smith and Ainsley Davies. 

Spotted: Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby

Deets: Concern Foundation will host their annual fundraising block party, showcasing multiple stages of live entertainment, casino style games, live and silent auctions, and food, desserts and beverages from over 70 of Los Angeles’ best restaurants and caterers like Vibrato Grill Jazz, Ocean Prime, The Grill on the Alley, Fogo de Chao, Atmosphere Restaurant, Outdoor Grill, Gyu-Kaku, The Urban Oven, Oak Smoke BBQ, STK, and Pink’s Famous Hot Dogs to name a few. 

Since its inception in 1968, CONCERN Foundation, which is dedicated to raising and granting funds to support cancer research worldwide, has broken local ground in many ways:  pioneering support of cancer research (specifically in funding young scientists); using the force of celebrity to raise funds; encouraging restaurants and then caterers to share center stage with celebrities to raise money; and pioneering the “block party” fundraiser concept.  This non-profit organization’s fundraising milestones also chronicle a rich era in the entertainment-oriented social history of Los Angeles.

The event is expected to have 4,000 guests with a goal to exceed last year’s $1.8 million dollars raised for cancer research.

Who You May Spot: This year, in honor of their lifetime of contribution and efforts in support of the Concern Foundation, Judy Carroll, Lexy & John Carroll & the Carroll Family will be given the Lifetime of Giving Award.

GUAC: MY SON, MY HERO, LA

@TOMS

@TOMS

Deets: On July 11th, TOMS will host the official launch of “GUAC: My Son, My Hero”, a one-man performance by gun violence prevention activist and Parkland father, Manuel Oliver, as part of their End Gun Violence Together initiative. The show introduces a new form of storytelling that combines a true first-person narrative and theater to create an immersive emotional experience that inspires audiences to take a stand on gun violence in America.

“GUAC: My Son, My Hero” is a social justice theater piece that tells Manuel’s story the year following his son’s Joaquin’ murder in the Parkland shooting. Joaquin, affectionately nicknamed “Guac” was one of seventeen people killed on February 14th, 2018 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Manuel and his wife Patricia turned their grief into bold activism and founded Change the Ref to devote their lives to raising awareness about gun violence and advocating for reform.  

GUAC: My Son, My Hero” incorporates storytelling, live painting, video and photography, and audience interaction.  Manny’s goal is to bring Guac’s story to families and communities across the country, in an effort to move audiences to take action to end gun violence in America.  Leading up to November 2020 election, Manuel is taking this show on the road to key electoral swing states to provide a human face to the imperative for gun reform.

After Parkland, who could blame a parent if they wanted to shut the blinds and sort of grieve and mourn in anonymity forever? That’s not what Manny wants. Manny wants to tell his story. Manny wants to tell his son’s story. Manny wants to help us all understand what Parkland felt like —what it feels like. I joined the team to help Manny make that happen. -Leslie Odom Jr.

I lost my son a year ago, but my son didn’t lose his dad. This work helps me be a dad to him every day. - Manuel Oliver

Produced by Tony-winning Broadway producer Yael Silver and co-written and directed by internationally renowned theater artist James Clements, the show is advised by Hamilton actor/singer Leslie Odom, Jr., Dear Evan Hansen lyricist Benji Pasek, co-founder of Soze Michael Skolnik and political strategist Emily Tisch Sussman.

About TOMS
In November of 2018, TOMS launched the End Gun Violence Together initiative, calling on individual voices across the country to help pass universal background checks, legislation that 90% of Americans support. Utilizing a tool on the TOMS homepage, more than 730,000 Americans sent postcards to their representatives in Congress urging them to pass this life-saving legislation. Additionally, TOMS is investing $5 million in a diverse coalition of non-profit organizations with deep expertise and on-the-ground programming to combat the gun violence epidemic in America. TOMS’ End Gun Violence Together grants will fund programs addressing three key issue areas: prevention, intervention, and survivor support.
