Hollywood Fringe Hosts AGELESS WONDERS: A Grown Up Kids Guide To Growing Newer
Ageless Wonders: A Grown up kids Guide to Growing Newer: is a triumphant one woman performance designed to enlighten people on aging in modern times under the direction of Best National Solo Artist Jessica Lynn Johnson. This musical/dramedy promises to shed light on the benefits of entering the club of senior wonderhood. This one-hour play promises to evoke some tears, guarantee smiles and even laughter. The show has a catchy original score written by Roland Mousaa, Grammy Winner & Mindy Fradkin, both of whom had the privilege of working and befriending the late great Pete Seeger, folk icon/activist. Opens June 8th at The Complex Hollywood, 6468 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood, CA
Ageless Wonders features Mindy Fradkin, the writer and actress with a comic flair. Her story is unique yet strikes a universal chord. When Fradkin, aka Princess Wow, made the realization that she joined "this club" as a senior "wonder", she began to research it and found information that inspired her as profound and helpful, and wanted to share it with others.
Franco Daye Pietoso, President of Laurel Canyon Records said, "It was an intimate, humorous and surprisingly poignant musing on the pros and cons of finding yourself a "senior citizen."
Yvonne C. Ronceros, NoHo Arts District, "Other performers may rely on ego-trips and self-aggrandizing stories, she takes you by the hand and you go willingly into her world." http://nohoartsdistrict.com/theatres/theatre-reviews/item/5542-solofest-ageless-wonders-whitefire-theater

About the Writer
Mindy Fradkin is the founder of The Smile Revolution which raises conscious awareness to the healing power of a genuine smile. She says that she created this show because of ageism that is rampant in our society, and within ourselves due to beliefs we were taught about aging. As an example of someone who embodies her view, Mindy introduces Anthony Mancinelli, a 107 year young active barber, in a 2 minute video, who still drives, lives alone, works full time, wears no glasses, and is a true ageless wonder.
