Every so often you witness a performance so impactful that you are compelled to share your experience with others whom you feel would benefit from the experience. In this case, let’s just assume that means EVERYBODY!
I’m referring to the A-Train currently running in limited remaining performances at the the 8th Annual United Solo Theatre Festival being held at Theatre Row Theatres, 410 West 42nd Street, New York, NY 10036. “A” Train was written and performed by Anne Torsiglieri, composed by Brad Carroll and directed by Risa Brainin
Simply put, the performance is brilliant. The impact is substantial. You will laugh, cry and generally be struck by a perspective and peek under the tent as a mother uses her skills as an actor, writer, and comedian to sing, dance, appeal and generally open her soul to the full journey from diagnosis of Autism through research, learning, frustrations and revelation, not to mention the most beautiful moments of humanity.
I highly recommend you grab tickets for the last open performance on Sunday, October 29th at 7:30 PM. There is likely no person who doesn’t know of or have some connection to an individual living life on the spectrum of a developmental or autistic condition. Yet, what we don’t typically experience is the personal account or intimate view that this play provides with a sense of humor, wit, heart and soul. It’s truly an eye opener!
