“Rapunzarella White is everything a kids show should be: Colorful, fun, inclusive, and totally delightful! It is a clever spin on three fairy tales that all of us know and love. Plus, the music and lyrics are smart and sharply performed by a talented group of actors.”
~ Jack Hyman, Author of "Breakfast with the Birds"

The Accidental Pervert
By Andrew Goffman
Directed by Charles Messina
This side-splitting one-man show tells the true story of a boy whose odyssey into manhood begins after discovering his father’s XXX-rated video tapes, which become an ever-present part of his life.
Andrew Goffman takes his audience on a self-deprecating journey into a world of video vixens, personal fantasies, and dirty movies with no redeeming value whatsoever. But he does find redemption for himself, in the end, through real-life relationships and a perspective that comes with time, distance, and an outrageous sense of humor.
AUDIENCES ARE SAYING:
"Comically, it was a FIVE-STAR performance."
“OK. We only laughed for 80 of 90 minutes!”
“This show was absolutely hysterical! It's a definite MUST SEE! “
"It's been a long time since I've had this much fun!"
THEATRE BLOG AT LEILABRANDT.COM:
This is a coming of age memoir about sex, the loss of innocence, and exchange of values that comes to us all with maturity. The subject is a cache of pornography, discovered by 11 year old Andrew and the role it plays in his life until fantasy gives way to a better reality. It could be anyone's story. The Accidental Pervert is a delightful evening out; come for the fun.

Written & performed by awardwinning comedianMary Dimino A Heartfelt Comedy About Dads and Daughters
Growing up in Queens, Mary Dimino idolized her dad, a factory worker, but also realized that she was different from him. In Big Dummy: Me & My Old Man, Dimino recalls her father's simple philosophy on life, which she later interpreted to be a cross between Forrest Gump and Aristotle. The comedian also explores her own desire to go to college and avoid the stereotypical careers of the time.
This powerful onewoman show uses humor to discover the heart in a loving family. Mary Dimino is the winner of the 2010 MAC Award for Outstanding Female Comedian and earned the New York International Fringe Festival's Overall Excellence Award for Outstanding Solo Show.
