I was lucky to have this opportunity! I wasn’t compensated to attend the event or post about it on my blog. All opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure for info on why I write posts like this.
Here is the info about the movie that was sent to me:
SOCIAL MEDIA: www.legendoftarzan.comOPENING DATE: Fri., 7/1/16 – in theaters nationwide (and also in 3D and IMAX)RUN TIME: 109 mins. (tent.)MPAA RATING: PG-13 for sequences of action and violence, some sensuality and brief rude dialogue.SYNOPSIS: From Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures comes the action adventure “The Legend of Tarzan,” starring Alexander Skarsgård (HBO’s “True Blood”) as the legendary character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs.The film also stars Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson (“Pulp Fiction,” the “Captain America” films), Margot Robbie(“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”), Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou (“Blood Diamond,” “Gladiator”), with Oscar winner Jim Broadbent (“Iris”), and two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Django Unchained”).It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.David Yates (the final four “Harry Potter” films, upcoming “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”) directed “The Legend of Tarzan” from a screenplay by Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer, story by Brewer and Cozad based on the Tarzan stories created by Burroughs. Legendary producer Jerry Weintraub (“Behind the Candelabra,” the “Ocean’s” trilogy) produced the film, together with David Barron (the “Harry Potter” films, “Cinderella”), Alan Riche (“Southpaw”) and Tony Ludwig (“Starsky & Hutch”). Susan Ekins, Nikolas Korda, Keith Goldberg, David Yates, Mike Richardson and Bruce Berman served as executive producers.The behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography Henry Braham (“The Golden Compass”), Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig (“Dangerous Liaisons,” “The English Patient,” the “Harry Potter” films), editor Mark Day (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Parts 1 & 2”), and Oscar-nominated costume designer Ruth Myers (“Emma,” “Unknown”). The music is composed by Rupert Gregson-Williams (“Grown Ups”).“The Legend of Tarzan” was shot at Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden, as well as on location around the UK.

The L.A. Women’s Theatre Festival is a multi-cultural festival of solo artists. I am happy to support these talented and inspiring artists!
What began as a coming together of female solo artists to collectively support each other has now become the oldest solo festival for women in Los Angeles and has honored well over 50 deserving women in theatre. The festival has brought together well over 500 solo artists from around the world, who year after year join hands to share their many heartwarming and personal stories. Audiences have become inspired, impacted and empowered to give testimony: they are not alone in their many experiences that have been mirrored on LAWTF stages over the last nineteen years.
On Thursday, March 24th, I had the chance to attend the Opening Night Champagne Gala that kicked off the Festival for 2016! It was lovely to see all the performers and be there for the L.A. Women’s Theatre Festival’s 23rd Anniversary Awards Ceremony. It was such an honor to be there! My husband and I enjoyed it. It was a full house at the Electric Lodge Theater in Venice, CA.
Thank you to my good friend and fellow blogventure enthusiast, Mary Lansing, of Along Comes Mary Blog, for letting me know about the festival. I am not being paid nor was I asked to share the information about the festival. I am donating my time, my Kindle book offer, and my support with social media shares and reviews for the purpose of sharing what I like and enjoy with you.
