Theresa Sareo Alive Again NYC Screening and live performance Fri. Nov 16- Tickets now available!
From Evan Ginzburg; Associate producer of "The Wrestler" with Mickey Rourke, "Theresa Sareo: Alive Again" is the critically acclaimed, inspirational true story of NYC singer/songwriter, Theresa Sareo, whose life was forever changed when a tragic accident on Manhattan's Park Avenue and 34th St. caused the loss of her entire right leg.
This moving, award-winning documentary gives an up-close and personal look into her challenging physical and emotional rehabilitation, courageous return to her music career and unexpected path to supporting trauma victims and wounded military around the world. Funny, poignant and musically electrifying, first-time director, Rye Joseph captures Theresa's determination to survive, give service to others and keep her musical dreams alive.
Marble Collegiate Church's own, Marcia Fingal, was fatefully at the corner that June day in 2002. Realizing Theresa survived, she graciously visited her in the hospital where they spoke for the first time. Nine years later, another divine twist of fate brought them together, leading to this very special event. Don't miss an incredible evening of testimony, celebration and entertainment!
Join us for light fare in the Meeting Place beginning at 6pm, with the screening in the sanctuary promptly at 7pm. A live Q&A with Theresa Sareo, Evan Ginzburg and Rye Joseph will follow the film. A short musical performance and meet and greet will round out this uplifting evening. Tickets available for $20 online at www.marblechurch.org.
