There Goes the Neighborhood
March 23, 2016 @ 7:30 PM| $10.00
In There Goes the Neighborhood Michele learns she must move from the street where she’s lived over 20 years. Her frantic apartment search parallels the possible tipping point for her Brooklyn neighborhood’s gentrification…which also may have been her own doing, as well…
Michele Carlo (writer/performer) has performed across the U.S., including the MOTH’s GrandSLAMS and MainStage in NYC, on NPR with Latino USA and appeared in the 2015 Emmy award-winning PBS documentary “Latino Americans of NY & NJ.” She is also the author of Fish Out Of Agua: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks, a NYC-based memoir.
There Goes the Neighborhood was first presented as part of the People’s Improv Theater’s “SoloCom Festival” in November 2014 and made its full-length debut at the Tank Theater’s “SoloWeek” and “SoloWeek: Redux” Festivals in 2015–2016.
Tanya O’Debra (director) is a U.S. (NYC, Cincinnati, Orlando, San Francisco) and international (Edinburgh, Montreal) Fringe Festival performer and playwright who has received both accolades and awards for her solo shows “Shut Up Emily Dickinson” and “Radio Star.” The script for “Radio Star” is available for performances through Original Works.
