PLATTSBURGH, NY – The Strand Center for the Arts is excited to announce famed comic Lisa Lampanelli brings her new theatrical production LOSIN’ IT! to, the Strand Center Theatre at 25 Brinkerhoff Street, Plattsburgh on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.
Produced by Groundswell Theatricals, Inc, Lisa Lampanelli’s LOSIN’ IT! is an intimate collection of humorous observations and real-life stories curated and performed by Lisa and a few of her friends. Inspired by her work with The Moth Radio Hour, Lisa has created a heartfelt theatrical evening focusing on the issues of weight, body image, and “losin’ it!” Performed in the spirit of The Vagina Monologues and Love, Loss, & What I Wore, Lisa and friends enchant theatergoers with hilarious, touching anecdotes about their own weight struggles, and lively audience interaction.
LOSIN’ IT! is a departure from the cutting comedy Lisa has long been known for. Of the change of direction, she said: “I decided stand-up comedy really wasn’t for me anymore. It wasn’t making my heart happy. So, I created LOSIN’ IT!, a show using comedy to talk about weight and body issues, which are things I’ve struggled with for years. This is so much more fulfilling!”
LOSIN’ IT! features stories and observations by Lisa, who is joined on stage by Frank DeCaro (“The Daily Show with John Stewart”), Lauren Ann Brickman (Upright Citizen’s Brigade) and Eden Malyn (Orange is the New Black), each with their own story to tell.
