Exclusive: New Musical LIFE IN BOOBS Will Hold First Workshop In Los Angeles

If you're over the age of 16 you most likely have some story about breasts, whether it be heartbreaking or hysterical. With Books & Lyrics by Casey Christensen (The Donkey Show), composition by celebrity vocal coach Rachael Lawrence (Grey's Anatomy, Glee), and conceived by Jennifer Goodman, Life in Boobs highlights true trials and tribulations of boobs everywhere, with original songs, comedic vignettes and dramatic monologues. This one-night only workshop will be on Monday, October 22nd at Vitello's in Studio City, CA and honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

A chance meeting brought Goodman and Christensen, who also both serve as producers, together after Goodman was in the audience of Christensen's show Hot Pants, Cold Feet at the Comedy Central Stage.

"Jennifer came up to me in the lobby and said she had an idea to do a show about boobs but she wasn't a writer. And I thought, well, heck! Every woman in the world will relate to this," said Christensen. "When I started I was an unmarried woman with no kids and was writing from one perspective; then one of my closest friends had a very long and difficult battle with breast cancer; and now I'm a mother and I've had this whole new world of experience open up. This is a show for everyone from 21 to 120 years old and women from all walks of life will go home singing their own anthem."

The musical has been ten years in the making and recently pushed to the forefront after Christensen was diagnosed with Idiopathic Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss. Determined to accomplish all of her dreams before full loss of hearing, Christensen locked down Rachael Lawrence to be the all-star composer and went on her way to book the bountiful cast.

The dynamic story deals with the journeys many women face from training bras, to dating, to pumping at work, and facing breast cancer. The energetic songs incorporate humorous pieces like "Life in Boobs," "Wife Beater Tank Top," and "Suck It, Cancer" to the inspirational "I'm Diane" which features real-life breast cancer survivor Lani Shipman (Co-Founder of Y.A.D.A.). Additional ensemble members include: Sherry Cola (I Love Dick, TNT's Claws), Sarah Lowe (Jersey Boys, The Apple Sisters on Conan), Lauren Rubin (Criminal Minds, The Donkey Show), Adrienne Visnic (Ten Days in the Valley), Sara Montgomery, Kyla Page Williams along with Christensen and Goodman.

Life in Boobs will be on Monday, October 22, 2018 at Vitello's Supper Club located at 4349 Tujunga Ave. Studio City, CA, 91604. Doors open at 6:30pm and the show will start at 7:30pm.
