Struck by financial woes due to escalating production costs and pirated discs, the Westminster-based entertainment company that puts on the iconic Vietnamese variety show Paris By Night (which graced our cover last year) is taking a new direction.
The producers have a lease on the Saigon Performing Arts Center, a newly renovated, 18,000-square-foot theater in Fountain Valley that was converted from an Edwards Cinema. The space will be used partly as a studio for a new television channel Thuy Nga is launching, VIETFACE TV, which will be broadcast throughout Southern California on KJLA 57.2 starting in March. The Vietnamese-language programming will feature entertainment news and past Paris By Night shows.
The production company is also opening the center's 600-seat theater/auditorium for community
events such as live performances, lectures and conferences. For rental
