Right Before I Go – a one-night only benefit hosted by Vanessa Williams - Submitted by Jane Dubin
December 4, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm| $52
Right Before I Go. by Stan Zimmerman, directed by Michael Wilson, brings to life the last words of those lost to suicide, including the heartsick, bullied, veterans, mentally ill and the achingly lonely. This poignant, deeply moving, and surprisingly light play invokes a raw and authentic approach to storytelling in an effort to help broaden public perspective of suicide, eliminate the stigma associated with depression, and strengthen the relationship between survivors and those struggling every day.
Right Before I Go. will be performed as a one-night-only benefit on Monday, December 4, 2017 at Town Hall (123 W 43rd Street). A student panel / talkback will take place at 6:30 PM followed by the 8:00 PM performance. A VIP post-show cocktail reception will take place immediately after the performance for anyone who purchased a VIP level ticket. Proceeds from the evening will benefit prominent suicide awareness and prevention charities, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (afsp.org) and JED Foundation (JEDFoundation.org).
The star-studded cast includes Vanessa Williams, Rashad Jennings, Amber Tamblyn, Ellen Burstyn, Elizabeth Ashley, Lois Smith, Wilson Bethel and many more.
