"She's long, leggy and as beautiful as a Vegas chorus girl, has the sensitive and powerful belt of a Broadway performer, and the depth and nuance of a serious actress. She deserves a one-woman show."– The Las Vegas Review Journal

"As an actor, Jividen's ability to transform is uncanny, and there is masculine swagger and a palpable sense of threat."– Richard Malcom of the Durango Herald


Penumbra  | Open: 08/17/09 Close: 08/29/09
 PENUMBRA (a shadow of a shadow) autobiographically illustrates the life of a Puerto Rican boy growing up in the Bronx who powerfully confronts issues concerning family and self-identity through rhythms of Hip Hop and Poetry. His father has been gone for 5 years, only communicating through letters and collect calls. His mother is afraid to tell him the truth. Raised by a single parent, Anthony in turn is challenged to discover manhood by first understanding what it means to be a woman. Described as “Bold, daring, and fearless…truly innovative” by HBO Def Poetry's Producer, Kamilah Forbes.
