Bordering on Love

Company of Angels

A new play by Evangeline Ordaz
Directed by Armando Molina

“Director Armando Molina makes impressively fluid use of the trapezoid units and wardrobe racks of Jessica Wiebel’s scenic design, aided by Cricket S. Myers’ eclectic sound plot, Isabelle Ortega’s costumes, and Don Allen’s campy choreography.” LA TIMES, David C. Nichols

“The shows energy, humor and story match up perfectly with an in your face “Sex in the City” attitude mixed in with some “To Wong Foo: Thank For Everything Julie Newmar” and “Under the Same Moon.” LA EASTSIDE, El Random Hero

Evangeline Ordaz Walks the Borders Between Art and Community – LA STAGE TIMES, Cindy Marie Jenkins

Drag and immigrant experience collide onstage – USC Daily Trojan, Louis Lucero II

Beauty can be a drag… or a path to citizenship. But, is there room for love in this pageant world? Bordering on Love, is new play by Evangeline Ordaz that combines two of our most provocative questions that confront our nation – the definition of marriage and immigration. It’s a platonic love-story dramady with a drag queen chorus.
