DETOUR: A Show about Changing Your Mind
DETOUR will appear as part of the Whitefire Theatre solo fest.
This special, one-night performance is Thursday, January 31, 2019 from 8-9 pm.
This is a 55-minute show with no intermission.
Detour is a funny and inspiring solo show about accepting change, taking risks, and finding your path. Writer/Comedian, Diana Dinerman, provides a hilarious, thought-provoking and uplifting theater experience. A unique performer - introspective and wry, her comedy will make you laugh and make you think - she's the best combination of smarts and theatricality that American comedy has to offer.
