    One of the best fringe shows I have seen; my partner who goes along to the fringe shows “just for the ride only” enjoyed this too. Honest. Maybe intense. Enjoyable.

    Outstanding storytelling about the producer’s life that addresses mental illness and how our society perceives it and reacts to it. I have been in touch with the producer and and plan to have him on my radio show on KKFI before the end of this year. I will have him on Radio Active Magazine, which airs at 6 pm on Tuesdays. We will have a conversation about mental illness, what it means to be bipolar, and intervention strategies to prevent suicide. It got another showing as the best in venue at the Westport Bowery. Go see it today if you did not get to see it before.
