THIS SHOW INSPIRES US TO THINK ABOUT HOW A 5 MINUTE CONVERSATION COULD SAVE A LIFE!
Messianic Moments and Cosmic Conversations the One Woman Musical is…
A Faux Documentary put into a Live Musical Theatre One Woman Show based on having Cosmic Conversations with 8 Women of all different ages, stages, and backgrounds about how to save this world and bring the Messianic Age or World Peace.
Mission of this show: To tell the stories of 8 women who are seemingly all very different on the outside-from different socio-economic backgrounds and locations. The words the characters say are based on actual quotes from people that Barbara has interviewed on the street in her award winning documentaries as well as guests she’s had on her podcast. Until we start conversing and listening to one another as one giant family who all started out from the same place and stop putting each other into boxes and staying separated, we will continue to suffer more than we have before. May we all learn how to sit with patience with anyone that is in our atmosphere and be able to listen to them with an open heart. If we can seek to have compassion for the hilariously annoying yet loveable and magical qualities of anyone before us we may just bring the Messianic Era aka World Peace. It may be messy but for sure we can Create something Magical together. This show is meant to inspire people to think about how a 5 Minute Open Hearted Conversation Could Save a Life.
