'Check Please 2' Show & LA Creatives Mixer A Huge Success in West Hollywood, Directed by Walid Chaya

Our scholarship production of "Check Please: Take 2," written by Jonathan Rand and directed by Walid Chaya, at the Zephyr Theatre in WeHo on Saturday, November 5th SOLD OUT!

Huge thanks to all who watched the hilarious play featuring a breakout cast of diverse LA talent and joined us afterwards at our LA Creatives Mixer Event!

Friends, acquaintances and fellow creatives mingled and made new connections at our Hollywood Mixer - which also included Industry VIPs such as Casting Directors, Agents, Managers and Show Runners in attendance.

Check Please: Take 2, written by Jonathan Rand, follows Guy and Girl who jump back into the dating pool after a disappointing breakup. Unfortunately, that pool is filled with foot-reading psychics, frustrated polygamists, and extreme accountants. And pirates. But are the blind dates really that unbearable? Yes. Yes, they are.
