Arts in Review Welcomes Three Solo Ladies This Week

Pacifica Radio’s Arts in Review welcomes three female performers, discussing their solo shows, currently being showcased at the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2018. Debrianna Mansini (The Meatball Chronicles), Monique DeBose’ show (Mulatto Math) and Stacy Dymalski (The Other Side Of The Razor Ribbon) join arts Journalist Julio Martinez today, June 8, on KPFK 90.7FM (2-2:30PM).

The Meatball Chronicles premieres at Broadwater Second Stage, 6320 S

Actress Speaks Out Against Lunch Shaming in School Cafeterias

From CAPITAL AND MAIN:
Actress Debrianna Mansini (Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad) is a passionate advocate for ending hunger in America, specifically through ending the practice of “lunch shaming” in schools. She will speak about it during The Meatball Chronicles, her solo show that opens June 2 at the Broadwater as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

Mansini spoke to Capital & Main by phone.

Capital & Main: What exactly is lunch shaming?

Debrianna Mansini: Lunch shaming happens when a child’s family owes money to the school lunch program, and a cafeteria worker has to refuse to serve the child a hot lunch. (I don’t want to disparage cafeteria workers. A lot of them don’t want to do it — they’re required to.)

I read about it in the New York Times and it just horrified me. Shamin
