Monica Piper, "Not That Jewish"--Emmy® Award-winning and Golden Globe® nominated writer, actress and comedian Monica Piper stars in this hilarious and heartfelt autobiographical ride of a Jew-“ish” woman’s life. From her show business family in the Bronx, to a WASP wedding, to her first step on a comedy club stage and life as a single mom, Piper shares the milestones and moments that shaped her life with the same signature wit found in her writing on, “Roseanne”, “Mad About You”, and her Emmy Award-winning work on “Rugrats”. Reminiscent of Billy Crystal's 700 Sundays with a peppering of Neil Simon's Lost In Yonkers, NOT THAT JEWISH is 90 lightning fast minutes of funny, moving, intimate and inspirational theater.

Dan Gasby, Brain Health--Dan Gasby is joining forces with the American Brain Foundation (ABF) to raise awareness of the tremendous racial disparities that exist between African Americans and non-Hispanic whites when it comes to the diagnosis, treatment and lack of adequate studies of brain disease. “Brain Health is the greatest 21st Century civil rights issue,” said Gasby. “When you lose your cognitive ability, your rights as a human being are greatly diminished.” “From my experience as a caregiver, I know that brain disease robs sufferers of their dreams and ambitions and of their hopes and even their homes,” said Gasby, who co-authored the moving memoir, “Before I Forget” with his wife. “Our brain health is often directly tied to our socioeconomic status. We need more funding, more awareness and more compassion for the more than 50 million Americans afflicted with brain diseases.”
