Eisemann Center presents POSTSECRET: THE SHOW, 2/15-18
Eisemann Center Presents continues the Theatre Series with the production PostSecret: The Show, for five performances February 15-18, 2018 at the Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Drive in Richardson, Texas. PostSecret (www.postsecret.com) is an internationally recognized public art project where people confess their secrets on homemade postcards, anonymously. Frank Warren, creator and curator, posts a selection of cards each week on the PostSecret website, which has become one of the Internet's most popular sites with over half a billion hits.
From its modest beginnings as a community art project in Washington, D.C. in 2005, PostSecret has since been a feature exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, The Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C., published six PostSecret books that have climbed The New York Times best-seller list, inspired over 1,000,000 postcard submissions, accumulated 1.5 million Facebook followers, and won numerous Webby awards. Time Magazine ranked PostSecret as one of the most influential blogs in the world.
This stage adaptation is a collaboration between PostSecret creator Frank Warren and Canadian theatre veterans, TJ Dawe, Kahlil Ashanti and Justin Sudds. The show is an immersive, poignant journey through the humor and humanity of the personal stories we keep to ourselves, and on rare occasions, share with others. Projected images, videos, three actors and a guitarist guide the audience through crowd-sourced narratives revealing the true stories behind the secrets. See the hopeful, shocking, painful and sexual secrets that brought hundreds of millions to the PostSecret blog.
