FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, NY--October 9, 2006-- Producer/Writer/Director/Actor Emmitt Thrower and his non-profit organization Wabi Sabi Productions are bringing social issues to the stage in New York City with Katrina: A Whole Lotta Water. The play is an effective combination of stage acting and music to bring awareness to the public through the means of entertainment.
Born in Dallas, Arkansas, Thrower came to the Big Apple when he was six years old and grew up in Brooklyn. Currently he is a resident of the Bronx. After 15 years of working in one of the toughest cities in the U.S. as a police officer, there is not too much Thrower has not seen. One thing he does know about is social issues.
The impact of hurricane Katrina cannot be underestimated and in many ways, the social upheaval directly mirrors the destruction the storm wrought on the area. The people affected directly and indirectly need our attention to help that area heal. People pay more attention to a mode of entertainment regardless of the intensity and importance of a subject; it all seems to sink in more than the nightly news. When a disaster and its issues are set to a stage play and the appropriate music of our times, it has more impact and meaning.
The opening of the hip-hop multimedia musical Katrina: A Whole Lotta Water is Nov 9, 2006 at 8 PM at the Producers Club II located at 616 Ninth Ave, New York City. Five performances have been added for November 10 through November 12, 2006: Friday 8 PM, Saturday 2 PM & 8 PM, Sunday 2 PM & 6 PM. Tickets are available at www.theatermania.com and by calling 212 352-3101. Groups can call 917 716-6635 for tickets. The cost of admission ranges from $20- $30.
