O’Connell & Company, the professional theatre in residence at The Park School of Buffalo, presents the trailblazing musical, BREAST IN SHOW, September 29 – October 30, 2016, with a VIP performance and reception on Wednesday September 28th at 7:30pm. *
The actors seamlessly sing and play 16 different roles including patients, family, medical personnel and friends. The show explores the lives of ﬁve very dissimilar characters, in different stages of their lives who have just been diagnosed with breast cancer. They have nothing in common except their illness and that they are each in a state of total disbelief. The audience rides the roller coaster of the disease with the characters as they gain strength and create lasting friendships. At ﬁrst one might think that a musical about breast cancer would be depressing or cynical and something no one would want to see. However just the opposite is the true experience of BREAST IN SHOW. The show accentuates the informative, very funny and serious aspects with equal vigor, bringing to the stage an emotional and multi-dimensional production.
“It proﬁles real people using humor to cope with the realities of the disease.” Eileen Mitchard Buffalo, NY
