On the Red Carpet: WALKING WITH BUBBLES Opening Night Off-Broadway
I attended the opening night of the new play WALKING WITH BUBBLES at AMT Theatre at 345 West 45th Street on Monday night. WALKING WITH BUBBLES is the one woman play written and created by Broadway actress Jessica Hendy based on her unpublished memoirs about living with mental illness in her home life.
As Jessica, a Broadway actress and single mother, and her son ‘Bubbles’ anxiously wait for their playdate in Central Park they are approached by a homeless man. This is their very true story. Jessica Hendy’s intimate first-person narrative invites audiences into her seemingly perfect New York City life from center stage on Broadway into the depths of a volatile mental illness. Walking With Bubbles explores how far a mother will go to protect her son, her loved ones, and ultimately herself.
Walking with Bubbles is produced by Tom and Michael D'Angora.
