Ageless Wonders: When Did I Become a Senior?
"Ageless Wonders:When did I become a Senior? is a triumphant one-woman one hour performance designed to enlighten people on aging in modern times. This musical/dramedy ultimately aims to give new perspectives, and will shed light on the benefits of growing older. Throughout a one hour performance, this musical will evoke some tears, smiles and even some laughs. The play has a catchy original score written by Roland Mousaa & Mindy Fradkin, both of whom had the privilege of working with the late great Pete Seeger.
"Ageless Wonders: When did I become a Senior?" features Mindy Fradkin, writer and actress with a comic flare. Her story is unique yet strikes a universal nerve. When Fradkin made the realization that she joined "this club" as a senior, she began to research and found information that struck her as profound and helpful. Mindy went to the extent of finding metaphysical solutions which she embodies in other aspects of her life. She entertains through story telling, music, multi-media, a hat performance with hats she designs, and introducing a special friend who hits all of her points home.
Mindy Fradkin has always wanted to make a difference in the world. She is the founder of The Smile Revolutin which raises conscious awareness to the healing power of a genuine smile. Mindy and Roland have produced an uplifting album of songs about the importance of smiling that will hel welcome senior wonders into this "club".
As an example of someone embodying her view, Mindy will introduce her audience to Anthony Mancinelli, a 106 year young active barber, who still drives, lives alone, works full time, and is a true ageless wonder. After the performance, "Lev" Levin, a senior wonder-organizer/co-founder of The Beacon Peace Award, will MC the Q&A. Mindy will field questions along with Anthony.
