Infertility: the musical that’s hard to conceive
Infertility — the musical that’s hard to conceive!
OH NO !!! Another show using “infertility as entertainment. . . And coming directly on the heels of the insensitivity of the TV series Inconceivable!!!
Yes — However “Infertility: the musical that’s hard to conceive”, written and composed by Chris Neuner follows the compelling, poignant and heartfelt true-life stores of five “would-be” parents.
Performances begin at Dillon’s (245 West 54th Street) New York City on Friday, October 14, 2005 and run through Saturday, December 31st.
Neuner’s play was previously seen as part of the 2004 New York International Fringe Festival. Writer and composer Chris and his wife Amy struggled through their own infertility trials and tribulations. Chris has put his heart and soul into the show which provides entertainment with the perfect mix of reality, humor and sensitivity.
By telling his own story, a single professional woman trying to adopt and a lesbian couple seeking the perfect sperm donor, Infertility: the musical that’s hard to conceive makes a very good start at removing the terrible stigma and taboo surrounding infertility. If ever there is a chance for those who don’t understand the pain to become sensitized to it, this play just may be the ticket they need. If you want to help those without infertility experience to have just a taste of the anguish, send them!
The cast of the show features Erin Davie (national tour of The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber), Jenni Frost (First Lady Suite at the Transport Group), Seri Johnson, Cadden Jones, Larry Picard and Kurt Robbins (national tour of Thoroughly Modern Millie).
