Staying con la Gana

To help raise funds for Lyric Hall’s much-needed, new and improved sound system, I’m launching my new solo piece, Staying con la Gana, directed by Carolyn Kirsch, on Saturday, October 10 at 7pm.

There’s a reception at 6pm, and an audience talkback immediately follows the performance. Tickets are $25; for an additional donation of $10, I will perform a spoken word interpretation of your yearning, on stage, after my show. All proceeds benefit Lyric Hall. Seating is limited and reservations are strongly recommended by calling: (203) 389-8885. Lyric Hall is located at 827 Whalley Ave., New Haven, CT.

In Staying con la Gana, I combine spoken word and monologues to introduce a cast of characters who are all longing for something – or someone: parents missing their children, women pining for lovers (and others), activists fighting for social justice. Staying con la Gana marks the third collaboration between Carolyn and me.

Hope to see you there!
