It’s two weeks away from the Journey of a Brown Girl premiere in Los Angeles!

Since August of last year the creator of the Journey of a Brown Girl, Jana Lynne ‘JL’ Umipig, has been working to cultivate and organize the sister hood circle to re-create and expand this experimental theatre movement.

“In combining our talents, passions and our spirits we have succeeded in elevating the work and each other,” said JL.

JBG has tightened and re-written the original piece to be ready for their California premiere and continued to grow the following of the show building upon their relationships with artists and the community in New York.

The production’s central themes allow for self-inquiry around women’s identity and issues and through the lens of the Pinay narrative.

“This is our story, and the story of our mothers, sisters, and ‘ansisters’ before us and the generations of young women who will come after,” she said.
