I believe in the strength of praying together; I believe in the Christian Easter, a universal symbol of rebirth that everyone – whether they are believers or not – truly needs right now. Thanks to music, streamed live, bringing together millions of clasped hands everywhere in the world, we will hug this wounded Earth’s pulsing heart, this wonderful international forge that is reason for Italian pride. The generous, courageous, proactive Milan and the whole of Italy will be again, and very soon, a winning model, engine of a renaissance that we all hope for. It will be a joy to witness it, in the Duomo, during the Easter celebration which evokes the mystery of birth and rebirth” Andrea Bocelli Andrea Bocelli, with the Foundation that carries his name, is currently involved in an emergency COVID-19 campaign.

“Desperately Seeking the Exit Uncut & Online” US/UK Easter Brunch Live Stream Matinee Sunday, April 12
Peter Michael Marino once again shares the notorious true tale of the making and unmaking of his West End-Blondie-Madonna musical “Desperately Seeking Susan” – on your computer. This 90-minute live streaming event will include a live performance of the award winning tale, plus bonus footage from the actual West End and Tokyo productions, and how the film scenes were adapted for the stage.
In 2007, American actor/writer Peter Michael Marino wrote a musical based on the Madonna film “Desperately Seeking Susan,” featuring the hit songs of Blondie. It opened on London’s West End…and closed a month later. Whoops! This high-octane, comical solo train ride fills in the blanks of how the $6 million musical was made and unmade. From hatching the idea, to deals with producers, MGM, Debbie Harry, and even Madonna…all the way to thrilling workshops, dangerous previews, scathing reviews, closing night, and beyond.
WHEN: 12:00 p.m. EST (17:00 GMT+1) Sunday, April 12
HOW MUCH: $12
