Dear Friends,

I am very proud to be a part of THE GLOBAL THEATRE PROJECT since my time living in Italy. We are a theatre company dedicated to promoting social good through theatre and supporting playwrights from all over the world. Join us this coming Sunday for an incredible evening of theatre at our fundraiser ESPECIALLY NOW: Create the World Together,with Special Guests James Cromwell (Six Feet Under) and Michael Farrell (M*A*S*H). I'm so excited to be acting in Italian AND English.

And why we in the states should care about this issue. Panel members include journalists Sandy Tolan, Allison Hope Weiner and Amnesty Regional Field Director Kalaya'an Mendoza.
