It’s rather difficult to assess Wheatonfox’s take on Lola. She has a lovely face and her voice is really nice, but still there’s something missing in her characterization. It doesn’t help that for some reason costume designer Janis Bergmann sabotages her with clothes that certainly don’t belong on a Lola. She’s supposed to be a femme fatale, not Little Red Riding Hood. For “A Little Brains, A Little Talent,” Wheatonfox wears an unappealing, too-long, flowered dress with ruffles — very un-Lola like. Only the sexy dress she wears in the last scene is in sync with her hussy persona.

The Fall of 1968 marked the beginning of a deeper more auspicious transformation for the young coed when she was enrolled at the University of California, Berkeley. She remembered the deep gratitude and excitement she felt as she set foot on the Berkeley campus “I felt like, ‘Am I really hear?’ That was followed by confusion about what a mess things were,” she said. The demonstrations against the war in Vietnam were escalating. As Josefina began classes, the campus was aflame — literally. The library had been set on fire. Garbage cans were smoldering and burning. Helicopters flew over the campus. Tear gas wafted through the autumn air. Startled and slightly confused by the turmoil, she had to ask fellow classmates what was going on.
