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.
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.

The National Park Service, the Santa Monica Mountains Fund and REI are organizing a trail restoration event for National Trails Day, the largest annual celebration of our nation's hiking trails. The Santa Monica Mountains are home to approximately 500 miles of trails, including the stunning 70 mile Backbone Trial.

Volunteers will redefine and reshape portions of theEncinal Canyon section of the Backbone Trail which is within the Woolsey Fire perimeter. This work improves public access and safety and also protects vegetation by clearly defining trail boundaries. Please come and be a part of this historic and important restoration!

"A dreamlike, multilayered film... spins out different threads of the 1960s revolution and weaves together something quirky and hopeful and touching." - Harvard Magazine
"Multi-layered, intense, fast-paced and educational." - Rick Pearl
The late 1960s counterculture was a mass awakening. It was a renaissance of music, art, experimental films, underground comix, psychedelic drugs, Eastern philosophy and cosmic consciousness. It was the dawn of the movements for peace, civil rights, environmentalism, sexual diversity, and women’s liberation.
UNDERGROUND 68 is the story of Ariel, a Harvard student writing her 2017 senior thesis about campus opposition to the Vietnam war fifty years ago. She digs up more than she bargained for in the unconventional lives of artists, musicians and activists from the Harvard class of 1968. Her story shines a blazing light on today's realities.
Harvardwood is delighted to present, in a joint event with The Lambs, the New York premiere of this new film by Peter Coonradt AB '68.
Harvard's George Martin Lane Professor of the Classics Richard F. Thomas will introduce the film. Professor Thomas, the co-producer with Peter Coonradt of UNDERGROUND 68, is a distinguished authority not only on the classics of ancient Rome, but also on the work of Bob Dylan. Professor Thomas will discuss how Dylan was deeply influenced by the classic Roman poets, and how the counterculture of the 60s was profoundly shaped by Bob Dylan—a grand arc from the poets of ancient Rome to the anti-Vietnam War protests of the 60s.
Also present will be one of the people profiled in the film, Stephen Michaels AB '68. In 1968, Michaels was the lead singer of a rock band. Today, he is a distinguished acting teacher in New York.
This will be an extraordinary event, and seating is VERY limited! Early registration is strongly recommended!
Advance registration is REQUIRED—no tickets will be sold at the door.
DRESS CODE: Business Casual is fine for the event itself, but if you are thinking of staying for dinner (the Pub at The Lambs will accept credit cards), JACKETS & TIES will be required for men. No denim, sneakers, or such.
This is a joint event with THE LAMBS.
Special thanks to The Lambs, and to Andy Goodwin and the Plymouth Hill Foundation.
