ACT IN THE PUBLIC HEART, A Lawyer’s Journey Seattle Live Theater One-Woman Show

February 9 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| 14 to 40

Described by audience members as “magnificent, compelling, relevant, magical, life-changing, absolutely brilliant, extraordinary…” and much more, Franca Baroni’s new one-woman show is back at the Jewelbox Theater in after a successful premiere in December.

Be prepared to hear your heart whisper, feel into your body and explore what has the potential to transform us and tackle some of the most complex problems of our time… A delicate mix of drama and comedy, Act in the Public Heart is a personal journey on the surface, yet it reveals itself to be much more than that- a multi-layered universal journey providing inspiration and a refreshing context about how to navigate issues of political disillusionment, social injustice and fear.

Written and performed by actress, award-winning author and immigration attorney, Franca Baroni, and directed by Simone Bruyere Fraser, Act in the Public Heart gives audiences permission to examine the current state of our world through a heart-centered lens. Baroni weaves a compelling tale of discovering the greater heart of humanity through her personal and collective quest for freedom and justice. Heart and law is often deemed an oxymoron…yet Baroni shows us a different perspective and how the power of the heart has the potential to transform our legal and political systems at large where justice and freedom become an actual experience rather than a fleeting aspiration.

Examples of what people are saying about the show:

• Your show will help me cope in this crazy world we have today…
• As good a one-person-performance as you’ll ever see. It might change your life, it changed mine…
• Nimble, deft, wonderful and transformative, a flawless solo performance…
• The Public Heart was phenomenon! Really powerful, inspiring and healing…
• Franca’s truth, conveyed with such an authentic, alive spirit, dares all of us to leap into the next level of consciousness- the next stage of evolution, collectively centered in the public heart. I am touched and inspired by this teaching that she brings for the transformation of all of us this planet…
• Franca’s physical comedy powers, coupled with the rare ability to dance her stories as she tells them, made her journey deeply engrossing, enchanting, and even electrifying…
• Franca provides irrefutable evidence that vulnerability is strength not weakness and that the truths born of embodied experience and loving awareness can transcend mental and material constructs that may be imposed by family, tradition, and institutions…
• And more…
