HURRICANE ALANA Set for United Solo Fest, 10/14
The 4th Annual United Solo Theatre Festival hosts one-woman show "Hurricane Alana," written and performed by Alana Jackler and directed by Perry Dell'Aquila on October 14, 2013.
For Jackler, the impact of Hurricane Sandy was not only devastating, it was familiar. In August 2011, Hurricane Irene touched down, destroying Jackler's ground-floor apartment. The artist was forced to relocate, regroup, and redefine what it meant to truly be at home. Four potential buyers, 25 lawyers, and 6 firefighters later, Jackler restored the unit with the help of FEMA, only to have it destroyed, on October 29, 2012 when Hurricane Sandy hit the tri-state area, turning Jackler's world inside out-again.
"Out of all this destruction came the creation of my show," Jackler says. "Hurricane Alana" is a funny and touching tale, which gets at the heart of hurricanes, and the eye of the stormy thing we call life. Christine Goodman of Art House Productions says, "just like Sandy and Irene, Hurricane Alana hits home."
