Left Eye Stage Show “2 The Left” Available To Stream For The First Time

This incredible one-woman show, ‘2 The Left‘, performed solely by talented actress Kerisse Hutchinson, returns to the spotlight this year with a very limited availability online to stream for the first time, courtesy of the Aurora Theater.

‘2 The Left’ is an inspiring music-filled, multimedia experience chronicling the life and spiritual journey of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, controversial member of the 90s pop music phenomenon, TLC.  This play with music focuses on a young woman of color and the challenges that she encounters as she embarks on a journey to find her artistic voice and purpose.  

‘2 The Left’ allows the audience to take a glimpse at the woman behind the legend and discover how her path might mirror our own. We reported on this amazing show when it was originally announced last year when it debuted in Atlanta. Recorded at the Aurora Theatre as part of its ‘Our Stage Onscreen’ series, the digital production will be available through until November 8, 2020.

Kerisse was so dedicated and determined to fulfil this passion for the role, that she took up an invitation to visit the USHA healing village in Honduras by Lisa’s brother, Ronald Lopes, to truly get a feel of who Lisa was and what she wanted to share with the world. “Kerisse took a moment out of her life to experience some of the things that Lisa experienced, to be able to tell a truer story about Lisa”, Ron says proudly.

Kerisse reveals that although Lisa’s story is bittersweet, it is full of depth, hope and insightful teachings that we can all learn from. “The bitter is removed when you realize that where Lisa’s journey ends, ours begins to be lived out more fully and boldly”, Kerisse says.

For a limited time, you can get a discount off the price for the show, by using the promo code TLCARMY on the website here.

Thanks to the Aurora Theatre!

TLC: The Musical could very soon become a reality in the near future.

Following the release of their final, self-titled album in the summer of 2017, fans were left wondering if TLC would ever release any new music again!

Well, fear not — there will be new music in the works, to be used in the TLC musical, according to Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas!

Speaking at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas on a promotional campaign for the upcoming TLC summer tour with Nelly, Chilli touched on what TLC have in store besides the tour.

“I’m personally working on some TV stuff [‘Girls Crew‘, ‘Fix My Plate‘], and us, TLC, collectively we are”, Chilli says, “and, we are working on the TLC musical and TLC on Broadway. So, we’re going to create new music for those projects as well.”

Chilli also clarifies that the musical will touch on some of the many untold stories that weren’t covered in the VH1 biopic, ‘CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story‘ in 2013.

“We didn’t tell everything. I mean, we have so many stories to tell that we didn’t tell in our biopic on VH1. But it’s a lot of stuff, a lot of good stuff”, Chilli says.

“It’s going to be very emotional, but like a good ride. I’m very excited about it. I almost can’t believe it!”

The music of TLC is very special, unique and timeless. So much so, their music deserves to be utilized in more ways, beyond the radio airwaves and on concert tours!

That is why the girls are continuing to push the boundaries and have big plans to create their very own TLC Broadway musical show!

Back in November 2017, TLC’s long term manager, Bill Diggins, revealed that he and the girls have a dream of producing a TLC Broadway show, based on the music of TLC!

“I predict that this will happen”, Diggins stated. “We are getting to work soon”.

Whilst attending the iconic show TINA: The Tina Turner Musical in London this week (April 20), Diggins excitedly stated that “the TLC musical will happen!“.

Are you excited for a musical based on the biggest selling US girl group of all time?
