Now touring... Be: Jesus + Drugs = Beauty!
Lesley is currently touring her one-woman-show, Be: Jesus + Drugs = Beauty. On April 13th, she performed Be at the Luckman Amphitheatre at Cal State L.A.In 2015, Be was presented at the Hollywood Fringe Festival and the ZooTown Fringe Festival in Missoula, Montana. Beis a 15-character, one-woman serio-comedy that deals with addiction, relationships, peer pressure, spirituality, self-love, and many other issues relevant to the Recovery Community. G, a fairy-like English woman, leads 7 different recreational drugs through a 7-step recovery program. As these personified drugs recover from their addiction to Be, they tell her testimony of how God brought her out of Hell (a.k.a. her drug addiction) and into the Light.
"FOUR STARS (Highest Rating). Lesley Asistio gives a powerful performance…It is a personal, brave, in-your-face dissertation of the seductive appeal of illicit drugs. She leaves the audience slack-jawed and on the edge of their seats.“ -Todd David Schwartz, KRLA Radio
“Lesley Asistio’s Be is a Masterpiece of Theatre. Although the entire play is a masterpiece in storytelling, the final scenes are what grab the audience by the throat and give them a jolt–a perfect climax to an interesting and unique storyline. Without giving away the story, Be is one of the most powerful productions this reviewer has seen and…one of the best Fringe shows ever.” -Robert Leggett, Indie Voice Blog
