MvVO Art Launches AD ART SHOW

Desperate Measures Saves A Man’s Life

Desperate Measures Saves A Man’s Life

Lauren Molina was taking headshots of a cute 25yr old gay actor. He told me that he had a bit of a dark story to share. 

He said a couple months ago he hit rock bottom with his depression and anxiety. He spoke to his therapist and she said that immediately following their session he needed to check himself into a hospital. He said he couldn’t because he had tickets to see Desperate Measures. His therapist said, “Ok but call me right after it’s done”. 

As he watched the show, when Conor Ryan sang “It’s Good To Be Alive” he realized that he shouldn’t kill himself. He said hearing that song changed him. After the show he called his therapist and said “I’m good.” It has become his mantra. 

It’s amazing how music, lyrics, and powerful storytelling can inspire and affect change.
