Anything But Goodbye
An original Musical Written and Produced by Wayne Bullock
Directed by Erik Bloomquist

It’s the end of the school year and Ben, a student of Dumont High, has committed suicide. While the High School itself is in an upheaval, a few students connected to Ben are faced with additional struggles. Ben’s best friend Chris is trying to cope with being dumped by his girlfriend, while Ben’s sister Regan won’t allow herself to fall in love due to secrets she’s been holding, including secrets associated with her brother’s suicide. And Kira, Regan’s one-sided rival and the most popular girl at Dumont High, adds to the mix. Although the school is preparing for a much-needed Anti-Suicide Rally, these students must face the harsh truth of their realities while fighting the inner urge to seal their fate the same way Ben did: suicide.

A Man and His Prostate is a breath of fresh air for men, and women too! It is the true story of Ed Weinberger's vacation to Italy that took an unexpected turn. A turn through which Asner guides his audience on a journey of pain, laughter, and anatomy—not necessarily in this order. A staged comedic reading that deals with a serious topic that has yet to be presented in the theatre and at the same time, creates awareness and pays tribute to those lost. A beautifully written piece by Weinberger and an enthusiastically executed performance by Asner. To life!
