23 Feet in 12 Minutes on its way to New Orleans

Last year, my business partner Mozz Mendez saw a one-woman show 23 Feet in 12 Minutes at the New York International Fringe Festival and raved about it in his review for NYTheatre.com. He wrote, “This play should be sent to every school, seen by as many people as possible, it should be performed on street corners. It should be presented to anyone who dares to watch the news, and say, well, there’s nothing I can do.”

23 Feet in 12 Minutes is a tour de force drama about eight New Orleanians as they deal with Hurricane Katrina and its after effects.  Playwright Mari Brown and actor Deanna Pacelli interviewed more than 60 people and culled the play from eight people’s haunting stories.  Deanna’s amazing performance as the eight New Orleanians wowed audiences and critics alike.  She was even awarded a Fringe Excellence Award for Performance.

Now, the play is on its way to New Orleans.  For four nights, it will be performed at St. Anna’s Episcopal Church (1313 Esplanade).  Tickets are only $5 at www.brownpapertickets.com.
