  • D Day, the bloody Allied invasion of Europe that culminated in the defeat of Nazi Germany, was one of the moments of high drama in world history. But behind that drama, there was a second drama, every bit as suspenseful, playing out in the unseen world of espionage, with spies and double agents, secrets and deception. And nobody knows more about that hidden drama than Nigel West.

    Nigel_West_Photo_2.jpgNigel West was educated at a Roman Catholic monastery and London University. While an undergraduate, he did research for Ronald Seth and Richard Deacon, who wrote about spying and security, and this led to his own career as a writer on intelligence and espionage. Since 1981, he has averaged a book a year. The Sunday Times wrote, "His information is so precise that many people believe he is the unofficial historian of the secret services. West's sources are undoubtedly excellent. His books are peppered with deliberate clues to potential front-page stories." In 1989, a panel of other spy writers voted him "The Experts' Expert" in the Observer.

    West has lectured at both the KGB headquarters in Dzerzhinsky Square and CIA headquarters in Langley, where he once lectured on counter-intelligence to an audience that included the Soviet spy Aldrich Ames. In 2003, Nigel West was awarded the US Association of Former Intelligence Officers' first Lifetime Literary Achievement Award.

    This event will happen two weeks, to the day, before the 75th anniversary of D Day.

  • Multi-awardwinning film about the chasms that too often exist between military veterans and nonveterans—and a simple, moving, proven way to bridge them. Veterans often say of the film, "THIS is what I want my loved ones—and the nation—to know!" And nonveterans often say it humanizes veterans in their eyes.

    Followed by a discussion with veterans and nonveterans and producer Paula J. Caplan. Refreshments will be served. 

  • Harvardwood Heads To... Mami Confessions 1 Actor, 10 Moms, 1 Million Problemas

    Friday, May 31, 2019 at 08:00 PM · $20.00 USD
    Aurora Theatre in Lawrenceville, GA

    My solo show, Mami Confessions 1 Actor, 10 Moms, 1 Million Problemas, is premiering in ATL! 

    MAMI CONFESSIONS takes audiences into an unrestricted examination of motherhood. From childbirth to the empty-nest and everything in between, the emotional roller coaster ride of maternal love is brought to life through real-life stories from women of all ages and circumstances. Rodriguez-Reyes portrays 10 mothers who are fierce, funny, protective, loving, sad, joyous, proud, unapologetic, remorseful, provocative and amazing women.

    To help her create MAMI CONFESSIONS for the stage, Rodriguez-Reyes brought in veteran director Susan G. Reid, a current Professor of Practice in Acting/Directing for Georgia State University's School of Film, Media & Theatre.

    MAMI CONFESSIONS first premiered in New York City, winning the 2014 ONE Festival in NYC and earning a full production run at the Teatro Circulo. The show went on to wow audiences in 2015 at The Kitchen Theatre in Ithaca, New York. Now, Rodriguez-Reyes is thrilled to bring it to Georgia, "There is such a wonderful blend of people that live in Georgia, I'm thrilled that this show can bring people of all cultures and communities together to celebrate WOMEN!"

    Rodriguez-Reyes has built a solid career appearing on stages all over the world. She first appeared at the Aurora Theatre back in 2018, co-writing and starring in Cuatro Mujeres, which she also performed at Marietta Theatre in the Square and in Mexico. She has landed roles at many respected theatres, including Cherry Lane Theatre (Verse Chorus Verse), Mint Theatre (On The Edge), Repertorio Español (La Gringa), Theatre Row (A Bicycle Country, Dog Day Afternoon), and many others. She was recognized with an OOBer Award for the role of La Extraña in De Dónde at The Looking Glass Theatre.

    On-screen, Rodriguez-Reyes has emerged in numerous film and television projects. Most recently, she appeared on the CW's popular vampire-werewolf drama Legacies, NBC's hit crime dramedy Good Girls, and in the Lifetime movie Room for Murder. She also gained attention for appearing in more than 10 episodes of ABC's fan-favorite hypothetical situation series, What Would You Do?, hosted by John Quiñones. Her credits include a supporting role alongside Nicholas Cage in the thriller feature film Vengeance: A Love Story; the role of Nurse Ramirez on the HBO's iconic series, The Sopranos; and as Carmen in the film, Taught To Hate, part of HBO's International Latino Film Festival. She earned a 'Best Dramatic Actress' award nomination at The Long Island International Film Expo for the role of Doris Blanco in the celebrated indie film Willets Point.

    A Bronx, New York native, Rodriguez-Reyes received her MFA from Harvard's American Repertory Theatre (A.R.T.)/Moscow Art Theatre Institute For Advanced Theatre Training.

    Lorraine Rodriguez-Reyes is represented by Atlanta Models and Talent.
