May opens with the following posts

Back in March I introduced my cousin, Lori Donaudy, partner at the L.I. advertising agency freshbrick, Inc. Lori was featured here on urbanseashell—a collection during my women’s history month celebration. The following article was just released from her firms news department as she continues to fight for rights on domestic violence. Click on Lori’s link ‘on the half shell’ and help the continued fight against domestic violence.


Aren't you excited? It's the absurd gay musical premiere of the season! With a stellar cast and ten rock-you-in-your-seat songs by Evan Laurence (his first musical) it's the guaranteed solution to world peace and happiness an hour and a half at a time!

So order your tickets now at: ...but we suggest checking in a couple of days for online discounts (shhh!) and remember Sunday matinees are "pay what you want."

Starring Evan Laurence, David F. Slone, Esq., Christopher Noffke, Danny Smith and Richard C. Lurie. Mark Berman has so given up on life after being jilted by his "true love," that he's developed an alternate personality, the outrageous Cricket Santiago, who has taken over. Mark is committed to a sanitarium, where Rabbi Kishka Meldstein and Cricket's faithful caretaker, Nurse Terry Sass-Poo, the preoperative transsexual, are sent to cure him. The Rabbi and Nurse Terry soon discover they are in the same boat as Mark Berman – living life without really being themselves. Presented in an absurdist, farcical style, My Inner Mark Berman promises an unforgettable musical and theatrical experience.
