From time to time, we like to share special events from our partners. This week, the Cancer Support Community at the Benjamin Center in Los Angeles is featuring A Night Of Theatre: The Gisele Show! Symphony in Be Flat with Jonna Tamases.
In The Gisele Show! Symphony in Be Flat, Jonna becomes Gisele Nett, quirky, lovable optimist from Hamburg, Germany. Gisele is a former button maker, now unexpected storyteller, who brings her hilarious and poignant insights to the true story of her cancer and double mastectomy. With music, playfulness, and captivating anecdotes, The Gisele Show! Symphony in Be Flat is a touching and laugh-filled show about life after cancer and loving the skin you’re in. To elevate the evening even more and enjoy a sense of community, bring your dinner at 6pm to connect with others before the show.
Gisele Nett is the alter-ego of actress and writer Jonna Tamases, previously known for her play Jonnaʼs Body, Please Hold, which was nominated for two Los Angeles Ovation Awards – Best World Premiere Play and Best Lead Actress. Sheʼs an accomplished sketch comedian and former Ringling Bros. circus clown who believes in the power of comedy to help us connect. There is more information about Jonna and Gisele at www.madlively.com.
Please visit the Cancer Support Community site for a multitude of free programs and services to aid those with cancer and their loved ones. We love Benjamin Center!
