Michele Carlo Opens NYU's Provincetown Playhouse Fall 2018 Storytelling Series 'Identity: Losing It, Finding It, Owning It'
Nuyorican author/performer Michele Carlo opens NYU's Provincetown Playhouse Fall 2018 Storytelling Series "Identity: Losing It, Finding It, Owning It" with "Fish Out of Agua," Sunday, September 23 at 3pm.
NYU's Storytelling at the Provincetown Playhouse Fall 2018 season's "Identity: Losing It, Finding It, Owning It" opens with an adaptation of Michele Carlo's memoir Fish Out Of Agua: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks on Sunday, September 23 at 3pm. Michele grew up as a double-outsider: a redheaded, freckle-faced Puerto Rican raised in an Italian/Irish Bronx neighborhood; too "white" for some of her family and a mystery to nearly everyone else. The personal story of the search for her true identity interwoven with traditional Puerto Rican folktales unfolds like a runaway #6 train, only with humor, heart and hope-for an unforgettable-and truly modern American narrative.
Michele Carlo has told stories across the U.S., including the Clearwater-on-the-Hudson Arts & Music festival, the MOTH's GrandSlams and Mainstage shows in NYC, on NPR with Latino USA and the PBS TV series "Stories from the Stage." She is the author of the memoir Fish Out of Agua: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks (Citadel, 2010) and is the producer/host of Radio Free Brooklyn's internet radio show/podcast "Fish Out of Agua" where she showcases the "stories behind the stories" of under-the-radar NYC artists.

Closest subways: West 4th Street (A, B, C, D, E, F, M); Sheridan Square (1); Astor Place (6); 8th Street (N, R) Event is free. Show is at 3:00 P.M. Box office opens at 2:00 PM.
