Making Paradise: The West Hollywood Musical opens

October 15, 2010

From the release: West Hollywood, 1984. What happens when residents in a little urban pocket in western L.A. decide to band together in their quest for community, sanctuary and rent control? E. Pluribus Chaos!

Making Paradise: The West Hollywood Musical follows the story of four UCLA friends who became pioneers of their generation by knocking down doors and uniting ex-Soviet immigrants, GLBTQ activists, and senior citizens in establishing West Hollywood as The Creative City…making it the vibrant cultural, artistic, and political hub it is today, more than 25 years later.

Heartbreaking, scary, triumphant…and musical.

This project celebrates the City of West Hollywood’s 25th Anniversary of Cityhood and is part of Cornerstone Theater Company’s 25th theatrical season.
