Take Flight Repertory Theatre brings exciting two-woman show to Sedona
Sedona AZ (October 4, 2017) – Take Flight Repertory Theatre is proud to present “Parallel Lives”, by Mo Gaffney and Kathy Najimy. This exciting two-woman show starring Nichole Katz-Garrison and Lindsey Gentile and directed by Christina Kiepper will be performed at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre in Sedona on Friday, Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 15 at 2 p.m.
Inspired by the sketch comedy of Mo Gaffney and Kathy Najimy, “Parallel Lives” is a fast-paced theatrical roller coaster ride. The play is divided into hilarious and poignant pieces with dozens of quirky, outlandish, relatable characters who will make you laugh while touching your heart.
“Parallel Lives” is by women, about women and for women, and, of course, for the men who celebrate women.
Come join us as we simply and not-so-simply explore womanhood — our place as sister, mother, wife, lover, creator, seeker, friend — firsts loves, first losses … finding our voice … finding and losing faith …navigating through gender roles, reinventing ourselves … aging … embracing it … fighting it … contemplating plastic surgery … making the life-altering decision to shave our legs and wax our mustache or just let it all go.
So buckle your seatbelts….this woman stuff is hard.
