Fradkin, Mindy Ageless Wonders Genealogy,
Media- Film,
Media- Other
My one woman show addresses ageism in America. It encourages the audience to take pride, ownership, and joy in their age, no matter the number. We are all ageless wonders. I am in my early 60's and aiming to help millenials to be the change for their generation! We will all get wrinkles and not look as good, and the younger generation needs to rethink how they view us olders. The show is musical, storytelling, dramedy, multi-media of me at different ages, and spiritual. I also make hats and do an interactive hat performance!

Brown, John John New York Photosongs History,
Media- Photography,
Music
Award winning songwriter John John Brown has set out to educate and entertain with his imaginative new project “New York Photosongs”. At the heart of this exploration are six handcrafted folk songs that tell the amazing true stories behind some of New York State’s most iconic and obscure photographs. “Conversations Atop a Skyscraper” takes the listener up high beside the grizzled New York City ironworkers of the Great Depression, while “Queen of the Mist” brings us to Annie Edson Taylor’s 1901 plummet over Niagara Falls in a barrel. The amusing “Cardiff Giant Hoax” sends the audience across the farms of Central New York in 1869 where science and religion collide in bizarre fashion, while the humorous “Georgie” gives us a peek at the infamous Lake George Monster. Keep your eyes peeled and you may even walk down the vermine filled alleyways of early 1900’s New York City and feel the “Rat Catcher Blues” or perhaps stumble into Times Square on VJ Day and see the “Kissing Sailor”. Armed with his guitar, 4x5 foot photographs, and 15 years as a public school educator, John John Brown shines a light on some of the most interesting New Yorkers who’ve walked before us.
