This weekend come see the new La Strada production of the hilarious comedy "NOT CURING CANCER." Join Christine Nagy, morning personality of NYC's 106.7 Lite FM and an amazing cast as we poke fun at the pharmaceutical and non profit industries.
This original production written by award winning Chicago play-write Gerry Ringwald premieres with 4 shows this weekend at the Jersey Shore Arts Center in Asbury Park, NJ.
Jane Huxley enters the work force after her husband has passed away. She is offered a job in a top Phamaceutical PR firm to help find a cure for Cancer in this searing hilarious origional comedy by Chicago's most scathing and biting satririst Gerry Ringwald. “Not Curing Cancer” pokes fun at the commercialization of cancer and medical research, celebrity fundraising, athlete endorsements, product placement, infotainment shows, hype, sex, show business, and just about everthing else you can think of.
