A New Theatre Piece by The Author of “Mourning Glory”

You’re invited to attend
a fundraiser performance
of my newest theater piece
on Saturday evening February 13.

Dear friends and colleagues,

If you’re looking for an uplifting response to this daunting time, I think you’ll enjoy BLESSINGS FROM THE PANDEMIC, which will be streamed on Saturday February 13 at 7 pm EST*, followed by a dance party!

BLESSINGS FROM THE PANDEMIC is a poetry cycle responding to the events of the last year: the big, the small, the humorous, the challenging, and even the inspiring. Already produced over Zoom by theaters across the country, this life-affirming and love-affirming performance piece will engage, entertain and heal.

Featuring an ensemble of nine fabulous actors (Hannah Beck, Mick Bleyer, Kimmarie Bowens, Steven Eng, Lynda Rodolitz, Hillel Rosenshine, Lisa Sokolov, Keith Torgan and Fred Velde), BLESSINGS reviews the events of the past year with compassion, humor and love.

100% of the income from performance will benefit Romemu, an eclectic Jewish community dedicated to opening body, heart, mind and spirit.

(Suggested donation is $18 per person.)

I hope to “virtually” see you on February 13, both for the show and for the dance party afterwards!
