SWIMMING UPSTREAM RECEIVES RAVES IN NEW ORLEANS,
NEXT STOP - THE APOLLO THEATER IN NYC!

"If art is therapeutic, "Swimming Upstream" is a breakthrough." The Times-Picayune

TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE FOR MONDAY NIGHT - DON'T MISS IT!

On Friday night, Swimming Upstream, directed by Eve Ensler and starring Tony Award winners Shirley Knight and LaChanze and the original New Orleans cast, enjoyed a packed house at The Mahalia Jackson Theater in New Orleans, and received rave reviews from audience and press alike.

"If art is therapeutic, "Swimming Upstream" is a breakthrough," stated The Times-Picayune's Bradley Troll in the opening line of his review. Noting the uplifting nature of this important work, Troll calls the show "a life-affirming journey through the emotional wreckage of hurricane Katrina."

Troll closes his review noting, "As "Swimming Upstream" moves onward across the country (next stop at Harlem's Apollo Theater), New Orleanians can rest assured that this is our story, through and through. Although the play is delivered from a distinctly female perspective, these women -- mothers, wives, sisters and daughters -- are representing the struggles and hopes of us all."
