SING AWAY THE STIGMA Concert To Benefit NAMI-NYC Metro
Quintessence of Dust Theatre Company presents Sing Away the Stigma: A Benefit for NAMI-NYC Metro
Sing Away the Stigma is a heartfelt, honest, life-affirming evening of brand-new songs by emerging musical theater composers and lyricists, inspired by true-life stories of those with mental health challenges. A dozen people from different backgrounds and walks of life, all living with a mental health condition, were interviewed and had their stories of struggle, strength, and hope turned into songs, which will be performed for the first time in this concert. Sing Away the Stigma is a testament to the power of musical theater, the strength of those living with mental illness, and the unique bond formed when the two meet.
Featured writing teams include Ellen Greenfield & Brad Ross, Diana Hansen-Young & Brian Feinstein, Rona Siddiqui, Katya Stanislavskaya, Laurie Hochman & Bryan Blaskie, Rachel Kunstadt & Heidi Joosten, Naomi Matlow & Teresa Lotz, Natalie Elder, and Beth Blatt & Clay Zambo.
The concert will take place on Thursday, November 8 at 7 pm at The Duplex.
Tickets are $15 ($20 at the door), plus a 2-drink minimum, and can be purchased here.
