ABOUT THE SHOW
Ibrahim is an average 30-something queer Arab-American Muslim who is constantly being reminded how unmarried he is by his relentlessly caring immigrant mother, Sara. Having helped raise his smart, popular, cheerleading hijabi younger sister, Ibrahim has always been comfortable sinking into the background. Normal job, quiet life, easy men. But on the precipice of finding what could be his first real relationship, Sara feels compelled to take Ibrahim’s future into her own hands by attempting to find the perfect man for him to marry. Mosque4Mosque is a comedy about a normal Muslim American family that asks us to wrestle with what we believe normal to be.
‘17/18 StageSceneLA’s Scenie Awards • • •
I’ve been nominated & deemed WINNER of my first award for my portrayal of Lola in Kinky Boots by the StageScene LA’s “Scenie” Awards!
Category is: “Break Out Performance in a Touring Production” - Jos N. Banks as Lola in KINKY BOOTS!!!
BWW Review: KINKY BOOTS at Starlight Theatre
" Jos N Banks, as Lola, is a quadruple threat! Banks acting makes one think he was born onstage and has never left. His singing and dancing in numbers like "Sex is in the Heel" are stellar, and his acrobatics in both heels and boxing gloves must make him the envy of the Broadway acting community! "
