29th Street Playwrights Collective

New Works Series
January 26, 2021 at 7:30 PM

29PWC presents a Zoom reading of REMIX, a new play by Melissa Bell. After being written off as a “one hit wonder,” MINI’s pop icon status is reignited with the remix of her past hit by a younger rap artist, which becomes this week’s hottest download. MINI is within reach of a long-desired comeback. Careers burn hot and fast in a business that perpetuates abusive behavior of which MINI is both victim and participant. REMIX deep dives into the realm of celebrity, the obsessive need to be worshiped, and the road to recovery.

Featuring Kimberley Shoniker (Supernatural, Write Before Christmas), Sean Evans, Ethan Herschenfeld, Lucy McMichael, and Khalid Rivera
