Live at the purple lounge is an exciting whirlwind into the lives of 5 female comedians. Every scene follows the life of a different comedian and the struggles of life after the set. The magic throughline of the play is brought together with the manager of the club,Bethany, played by the hilarious and thought provoking actress, Maria Proios.

I've never been to a world premiere of an original piece, opening night was as exciting for the audience as it was for the actors. So many wonderful actresses and actors coming together to bring this unique and exciting piece to life.

Congratulations to all involved!
