I am so honored and delighted to announce that I have accepted a Board of Director’s position with Ripple Effect Artists, Inc., a dynamic off-Broadway theatre company and 501 (c) 3 organization that uses the power of theatre to address social injustices and shifts audiences from Apathy to Action – creating a ripple effect in the larger community.
On January 18, 2016, Ripple Effect Artists will premiere the Andrew Kooman play SHE HAS A NAME* at NYC’s The Electra Theatre to show how Human Trafficking occurs as a global epidemic. The production will be followed by an educational, talk-back conversation with audiences including the following organizations: Girls Education and Mentoring Services, Safe Horizon, Polaris Project, as well as two Psychotherapists. A portion of box office proceeds will be donated to these organizations. Additional dates are: January 25th and February 1st. For tickets visit: REArtists:She Has A Name.
