Male Breast Cancer makes up only about 1% of all breast cancer cases, but of that 1% about 26% of them die which is due in part to the lateness of detection. This brings to light a much bigger issue and that is men's health care. Men are less likely to say something when something is wrong with them, let alone get tested for diseases they don't feel they have or can get. So it does not matter if it is breast, colon, skin, lung, or prostate cancer, men must be more aware to improve their health and save their lives.

Die Laughing is a genre bending, one man play in three acts that promotes Breast Cancer awareness. The play uses a unique blend of drama and stand-up comedy never before seen in a stage play. The stand-up comedy within the play is used as a character building tool as well as a magnifier of the ignorance society has towards Breast Cancer.

The Cast of Die Laughing Includes: Gil Charleston, Russell Jordan, Okema T. Moore, Danielle Renee, Tiandra Gayle, Kristen Ivy Haynes, and Christina Berry.

The Roy Arias Theatres @ the Times Square Arts Center is at 300 W 43rd Street 5th Floor New York, NY, between 8th and 9th Avenues.

There will be two special press and industry preview days which are November 8 and November 9 at 6pm. Please contact us for more details.
