In a new annual tradition, The Fundamental Theatre Project holds a benefit show at Brooklyn’s Atelier Roquette, to raise funds for various charitable organizations. This year was the second of these fundraisers and the recipient of this year’s donations is The Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund.

They consistently have powerful and diverse performers contribute to the cause of helping others, by sharing their talents. Such talents range from musical performances, spoken word, recitation, stand-up and (new to me) rhythm therapy

A wonderful evening, in a beautiful and welcoming setting that I hope others will have the opportunity to experience. Check out a couple of clips below of some performers (including yours truly). Besides this flirt, also featured are NYC-based artists Jenn Mundia and Melany Watson. You can catch both performing regularly throughout NYC - and believe me, your ears need to hear more of them!
