SUE COSTELLO - I WASN'T TRYING TO BE FUNNY

Genre:

The alternately hilarious and heartbreaking show tracks Costello's life as she goes from a nerdy kid to the star of her own television show. After losing it all, Costello is faced with the fact that the superficiality of the material world was the only thing propping her up. Throughout the journey, Costello figures out that the only way for her to really be strong is to live her life based on a foundation of hope, love, inner strength and humor.

Rave reviews have poured in for prior workshops of I Wasn't Trying To Be Funny. The Boston Metro said "Not many people have the charisma, stamina, or the anecdotes to sustain a 1 1/2hr show alone, Sue Costello does it sans props, costumes or music in the play." The Boston Herald called the show "powerful, thanks to Costello's frank charisma and her ability to mingle humor with tragedy"; and the Patriot Ledger mused that, "Costello rivets the audience with a comic's gift for delivery and wit and an actress' skill with emotion."
