Staged Reading Of New Play LIFE LIST Introduces A Start-Up Story With Contemporary Themes
Taking place at a time when the tech industry's mergers, acquisitions and IPOs are contributing to a boom or bust environment, LIFE LIST portrays a business market in FREE-FALL! Its silver-spoon investors clash with entrepreneurs leading a start-up company worth millions, as they wield sarcasm, sharpened pens and other weapons of financial destruction. Alliances are forged as broken promises threaten fragile relationships between the executives, board members, and employees. The characters' struggles for ascendency, a moral high ground and at times, their very survival, create humorous byplay and dynamic action with unexpected twists and turns.
Directed by noted actor and playwright David Adkins (MTC, Women's Project, Berkshire Theatre Group, Unicorn Theatre, George Street Playhouse), this reading of LIFE LIST features the talents of stage and screen actors Ross Bickell, Jim Bracchitta, Antoinette Lavecchia, Tommy Schrider, Lynn Silver, Chris Tucci, and Sanam Erfani.

LIFE LIST is a new American play written by Scott Cohen. A life-long storyteller, Scott has other theatrical projects in earlier stages of development. After several table reads and successive rewrites over the past few years, Life List is his first play to have a staged reading before a theater audience.
Scott's personal history includes having grown and developed Internet companies remarkably similar to that shown in Life List, having filled almost every role portrayed in the play himself, at one time or another. Scott's other notable accomplishments include the Life Cube Project, an interactive public art installation with social impact reaching well over 100,000 people at Burning Man and in multiple cities across America.
