World Premiere Of ACCIDENTALLY BRAVE Comes to the DR2 Theatre
Daryl Roth (Kinky Boots, Indecent, Gloria: A Life) presents the world premiere of Accidentally Brave, written by and starring Maddie Corman (Appropriate, Next Fall). The limited engagement is directed by Tony Award Nominee Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages, bare). Previews begin on Monday, March 11, with an opening night on Monday, March 25, and a final performance set for Sunday, July 14 at the DR2 Theatre (103 E. 15th St, NYC).
Courageous, daring, and unflinchingly honest, Accidentally Brave is a stirring new play about discovering a new normal when everything you thought you knew comes undone. With raw vulnerability and unexpected humor, actor and playwright Maddie Corman shares her story of perseverance and hope when the unthinkable tests her marriage, family and values.
Maddie is a wonderfully thoughtful person, actor and writer, says producer Daryl Roth. Accidentally Brave is her story, personal yet universal, and goes to the core of what it means to be human in a world with no certainty. I am proud to bring Maddie's beautiful play to the stage, and trust audiences will respond to it as strongly as I have.
I have been so moved by the honesty and bravery of those who have shared their deeply personal stories with the world, and privately with me, over the past year and a half, says Maddie Corman. Their strength has helped so many people begin to heal and feel less alone. My hope is that sharing my story - in all its messy glory - will open people's hearts and help shine a light on things we feel must be kept secret.
