MARINA's High-NRG LIVE! 'The Musical' Comes to The Triad Theatre NYC, 9/30
In 2015, Broadwayworld.com had the opportunity to visit a WorkShop session during a 4 month run of MARINA's "High-Nrg Fitness Live!" in New York City. The sessions were completely full with people of all ages who enjoyed the unique theatrical interactive experience. Marina feels that giving people a choice to interact or not is important to the success of this experience, so there was seating for those that did not want to interact on the floor and simply wanted to watch the show. Whether standing and participating or seated, all in attendance leave the theatre feeling NRGIzed, inspired and filled with musical motivation and positive messages.
Marina Kamen aka MARINA, who has lost 100 pounds while writing over 50 albums and 450 songs for the dance and fitness communities, has now turned these honed workshops into a full blown Musical Theatre Experience called MARINA's High-NRG LIVE! - "The Musical". Marina who has written the script, music, lyrics, choreographed & directed this project has cast an enormously talented ensemble who play instruments, sing and dance. Many of them have also lost significant weight with Marina's guidance over the past 2 decades and or been mentored by Marina vocally. These people's stories have been woven into this seamless musical storyline. As Marina tells the crowd, "Hear the music, feel the beat and never stop moving in your life." This is a mind, body and spirit concept easily felt by all from this exciting musical theatre encounter.
MARINA's High-NRG LIVE! - "The Musical" will make it's first debut in NYC on Friday Sept. 30th at 7:00pm from The Triad Theatre located at 158 West 72nd st. 2nd floor.
