Wild Water Walking Club: adapted from novel by best selling Author, Clair Cook
A fun and inspiring novel about women and friendship—and how even big changes happen one step at a time!
Join Noreen, Tess and Rosie as they walk and talk, talk and walk, tally their steps, share their secrets, and begin putting their lives back together. You'll be lacing up your own sneakers in no time!
After losing her boyfriend and her job in one fell swoop, Noreen has no idea what her next step is. So she puts on a new pair of sneakers and a seriously outdated pair of exercise pants, and walks. Before long she's joined by two neighbors as lost as she is and figures out time flies and fitness is actually fun when you're walking with friends. Throw in a road trip to Seattle for a lavender festival, a career-coaching group that looks like a bad sequel to The Breakfast Club, some terrific romantic comedy twists and turns, a quirky multigenerational cast of supporting characters, and the result is a tribute to female friendship that will inspire you to pick up the phone and call all your old friends—or maybe even start your own walking group.
Song of the Phoenix
SONG OF THE PHOENIX is a weekly hour long dramedy, set in the mid 80’s in an authentic Manhattan cabaret; in other words - it’s a dive. A threadbare, overlooked place, filled with misfits and music, busted dreams and unbridled ambition where the ceiling leaks and the vodka is crap. At The Phoenix you cross paths with drunks and cockroaches, yesterday’s divas and today’s wannabe’s, the occasional small time criminal, and every now and then – someone with an undeniably thrilling spark of talent.
The Goddess in my Building
"The Goddess in my Building" is a musical written for the stage about a typical apartment building in lower Manhattan with some not so typical tenants- the 82 year old grandmother who's still drinking and smoking up a storm, a teenage poet and pacifist, a slightly loony hoarding cat lady, they're all sisters from different mothers.
