Have you ever wondered who would play you if your life would be portrayed in a movie? I have. Who would be a good me? I mean, besides from Denzel Washington. (Obviously he and I are a resounding match.)
What? You don't see the resemblance? It's because I'm not wearing a tie, isn't it? Use your imagination, people.
night I saw a small glimpse of my life played out -- not on
the screen, but on the stage -- when Cynthia Mazzant, a talented
playwright and co-founder of Tempest Productions, drew from the works of several talented authors and poets and wove them into the dialogue and monologues in Sunshine, Lollipops & Rainbows, an interactive play set at a bridal shower. I was honored -- and humbled -- to be featured among them.
I watched as the humorous, heartbreaking, and complex rituals of women were dramatized before me, and I listened as these words of mine were beautifully delivered. Let me tell you, this was special.
My warm thanks goes out to Cynthia, Tempest Productions, and the actors for such a touching adaptation.
