FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, NY--November 6, 2006-- Emmitt Thrower is the owner and president of the non-profit Wabi Sabi Productions. With the opening of Katrina: A Whole Lotta Water just around the corner on November 9th his organization and their sponsor Fractured Atlas anticipates a lot of buzz about the off Broadway play.
Emmitt Thrower is a recipient of the 21st Century Independent Spirit Award in culture and the chairman of the Otto Awards for political theater. He is also one of the founding organizers of Five Points Productions Theater, collaboration between diverse theater companies uniting to produce political theater on 42nd Street. Emmitt’s goal artistically is to find diamonds in the rough and help develop them, and then release them into the universe. Katrina: A Whole Lotta Water will bring attention to many performers, but more importantly to a crisis that is ongoing in the affected areas that the hurricane devastated.
The focus of the multimedia event will surround the deep social issues around such a life-changing event and help those unaffected by its far-reaching destruction to come to an understanding of how important it is to feel the pain and suffering of others and count their blessings for what they have. Many life situations can be set to music and dance and this is no exception, in fact, the play brings it all home straight to the heart, and that is the hope and intent of its creators.
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.
