Josh Rivedal’s one man, live Broadway-style play Kicking My Blue Genes in the Butt includes fifteen characters and seven songs and is both comedic and poignant. Mr. Rivedal discusses the tragic suicides of both his father and grandfather in a primal piece of live storytelling that creates an emotional connection with the audience and conveys the powerful message that suicide is preventable.
Finally, there will be a live Q&A between Mr. Rivedal and the audience on the importance of mental health and suicide prevention. Representatives of NAMI of Phoenix, and Verde Valley Mental Health Coalition will moderate the after-show discussion.
Emerson Theater Collaborative, in collaboration with NAMI, Verde Valley Mental Health Coalition, I Am Worthy Project, and the i’Mpossible Project
