29TH STREET REP’S THE HIVE and LSMFT PRODUCTIONS, LTD. present a one night only benefit performance of “Nice Girl” by Jill Carey Michaels and “Searching for Soula” by Marisa Petsakos at The Center at West Park, McAlpin Hall, 165 West 86th Street, York, NY. Funds raised will benefit 29th Street Rep Founding Member, Linda J. Larson, who has been recently diagnosed with “MMN” a rare auto-immune disease.
The evening’s program features two witty and original solo performers. Professor Jill Carey Michaels infuses her unique brand of storytelling and music into “Nice Girl”. The show follows Jill’s comical true life adventures; told in stories and songs about a “nice” girl from the suburbs who moves to the big city, yet remains unfazed despite the many characters she meets along the way. Jill is the author of three humorous illustrated books.
Marisa Petsakos is an actor and writer whose solo work has appeared at the Midtown International Theatre Festival (Nominee for Outstanding Production of a Short Subject). “Searching for Soula”is the story of a young woman, Irina, who lives and works in New York City. The adventures of her best friend, Soula, consume her and as she muses on Soula’s take on love, sex, religion and career, Irena discovers her own sense of self, often in unexpected ways.
