LIFE IN A MARITAL INSTITUTION
(20 YEARS OF MONOGAMY IN ONE TERRIFYING HOUR)

ACCLAIMED ONE MAN SHOW PRESENTED BY THE KRAVIS CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS / APRIL 27 & 28

Tickets are now on sale for the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts' presentation of Meredith Vieira Productions presents LIFE IN A MARITAL INSTITUTION (20 years of monogamy in one terrifying hour), starring "This American Life" contributor James Braly. The acclaimed monologist, likened to a new Spalding Gray, comes to West Palm Beach following his sold-out runs in New York City and Philadelphia, to perform his darkly comic tale of attraction, repulsion, death, and the afterlife for two performances. Showtimes are April 27 & 28 at 7:30pm.

Former TODAY show anchor Meredith Vieira is producing LIFE IN A MARITAL INSTITUTION with her producing partner Amy Rapp through their Production Company Meredith Vieira Productions. Braly's monologue, Life in a Marital Institution, was hailed by New York Times as a Critic's Pick and by The Broad Street Review as "a required course before anyone says, 'I do.'" The first two-time winner of the GrandSLAM Storytelling Competition sponsored by the The Moth - cited by The Wall Street Journal as "New York's hottest and hippest literary ticket" - Braly has a wide, multi-generational following. His razor-sharp wit led Time Out New York to describe him as "a comic raconteur who can hold a room captive." His stories have been broadcast nationally on This American Life, NPR, and Marketplace, and his essays appear in the recently published anthologies, Afterbirth (St. Martin's Press) and Mr. Beller's Neighborhood (W.W. Norton). He has performed autobiographical stories at New York's Whitney Museum, Long Wharf Theatre, and The Moth, where he was featured on the TNT National Story Tour. His full-length monologue, Asylum, recently premiered at Dixon Place.

Life in a Marital Institution, premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, toured nationally last year after playing more than 120 performances in New York City. An autobiographical comedy, it cuts back and forth between the deathbed wedding of Braly's sister, and his own hilarious marital adventures of more than 20 tumultuous years. Directing is Hal Brooks, who directed Nilaja Sun's No Child and was the Creative Consultant on Colin Quinn's recent Broadway show Long Story Short.

Tickets for Life in a Marital Institution are $35 and can be purchased at the Kravis Center box office, 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in downtown West Palm Beach; online at www.kravis.org; or by phone at (561) 832-7469 or (800) 572-8471.
