Theresa Sareo Alive Again NYC screening/performance

Folks, this is the BIG one. The one weve been building towards all these years- our NYC screening/performance of Theresa Sareo Alive Again on Friday Nov. 16. We ask for your support and attendance and if you cant make it, to please help post/share/like and get the word out on a film that will not only build awareness of the plight of Wounded Warriors and trauma victims, but also INSPIRE. We need YOU to help this low budget indy film find its audience!

Marble Church Blurb:

The trailer for the film can be watched here: 

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 Marbles Bay Hall beginning at 6pm, with the screening in the sanctuary promptly at 7pm.  A live Q&A with Theresa Sareo and Evan Ginzburg will follow the film. A short musical performance and meet and greet will round out this uplifting evening. Tickets for Friday Nov. 16 screening available for $20 online at Tickets also available at the door night of show.
