VAN NUYS—After 18 sold out performances in Glendale California, actor, writer and painter Vahe Berberian is taking his latest monologue “Sagayn” on the road, kicking off in Armenia, then Syria and finally Lebanon.
“The response to the show has been sensational and I am thrilled about this tour,” says Berberian, “The LA audiences were extremely receptive and I had a blast performing for them.” Sagayn producer Christina Shirinyan says, “We had an incredibly diverse audience that simply loved it and kept on coming back for more.”
In the next year and a half, Sagayn will be performed in over 18 cities all over the Middle East, Asia, North America, South America, Australia and Europe.
The first phase starts in Yerevan where Vahe will have performances on September 17 and 18, then two shows in Aleppo on September 26 and 27, and finally two shows in Beirut on October 2 and 3.
“What is exciting about this phase of the tour is that it starts in our homeland Armenia, then passes through Aleppo, where Vahe’s father grew up, and then Beirut, where he grew up,” adds Shirinyan.
Berberian finds it fascinating to see audience reactions through various parts of the world. “I am looking forward to performing in so many different communities, especially since the whole theme of Sagayn is centered around the characteristics we all share as Armenians,” says Berberian, who has had similar tours for his three other monologues Yevaylen, Nayev and Dagaveen.
