MY PRIVATE REVOLUTION
THE ARTIST'S JOURNEY
Hi my name is Shawn Love and I'm excited to share the project I'm working on called MY PRIVATE REVOLUTION. This is the third play that I have written and produced. The first two projects, THROUGH THE FIRE and RAW LOVE had a cast of 25 actors and dancers to share my story. What makes MY PRIVATE REVOLUTION unique is that I'm summoning up the courage to share my story in my own voice with three distinct characters through dialogue, monologue, poetry and movement. I am ecstatic about this project because I'm pushing myself beyond my limits and sharing my heart and soul to those who see it.
THE POWER OF THE PLAY
Both my parents are and were incredible artists. I have long since given up the idea of having a corporate 9-5 job. What I aspire to be is a writer, producer and creator of magical projects that make a difference in other people's lives. This is why I wrote MY PRIVATE REVOLUTION. I feel that my play has the voice of many. It speaks to abuse, loneliness and depression and how we can overcome these problems.
THE PLAY'S STORY
MY PRIVATE REVOLUTION is dynamic one-woman show about overcoming abuse and finding healing and forgiveness. It is a rhythmical and powerful journey addressing social issues and celebrating the power of individual choice. A thought provoking, transformational and heart wrenching play filled with drama, music and dance.
THE PLAY'S CREATIVE TEAM
It's a woman show but there is another actress/singer and an incredible talented group of people surrounding me.
TRACEY MOORE (Director) arrived in New York City to pursue a directing career, but she was suddenly sidetracked by the many opportunities that she was offered.
Her first venture was CEO of "The Jokes on You! Inc.": an ensemble of actors who performed practical jokes for hire. Through the success of her company, she developed lasting relationships with the many actors who were anxious to be a part of this wacky production.
After five successful years of performing jokes, a director noticed the bulging files that Tracey had and asked her for a casting favor and so Tracey Moore Casting was born.
"Find a void, fill it," says Moore, and with that mantra Tracey has gone on to cast for feature films such as Just Another Girl on the I.R.T., New Jersey Drive and A Brother's Kiss.
Tracey was also Extras Casting Director on the legendary Fox show New York Undercover during 1994 and 1995. Her commercial credits are lengthy; they include Nike, Sprite, Coca-Cola, New York Times, Miller Lite, Pontiac and Taco Bell, just to name a few.
PAT P. LEWIS (Mother/Singer) has been blessed with the love of live showmanship. Among the many film and TV productions she's been featured in are "A Perfect Stranger", "Law & Order", and "Frienemies".
She has had the honor of appearing on stage with Shawn Love in one of her earlier original pieces, "Through the Fire", in addition to performing in "Having Our Say" (Martha's Vineyard Playhouse), "In The Upper Room" (Symphony Space), "Black Nativity, and "Brown Women Who Fly" (Henry Street Settlement).
Pat has also been on the national tour with Theatre Works U.S.A. and found time to participate in stage readings of plays ("Invisible Fences" - Lark Theatre), and scripts ("Truth" - Inter-borough Repertory Theatre). She is currently blessed to a part of The Crystals, a 1960's singing group that travels all over the world.
She thanks God for her gifts and opportunities. She thanks her husband, family, and friends for their unwavering love and support.
SHAWN ALEXANDER (Co-Producer) keeps me organized and focused and he brings a high level of professionalism and creativity to the project. This is also the second play that the and I have worked on.
He's a graduate of The Cooper Union School of Art (BFA), and The University of Michigan (MFA), with teaching, production, and supervising experience in educational institutions (The Brooklyn Museum) and entertainment companies and networks (Screen Actors Guild, HBO, NBC-Universal TV, etc.).
He has also written and/or produced stories (via paint, words, and most recently film) that often meet at the Pan-African crossroads of history, family & identity. Among them, he co-wrote the award-winning indie feature film, August the First (distributed via Filmmovement), and co-produced the stage play RAW LOVE, which ran at the Theater for the New City (NYC).
