Award-winning film and TV director Joel Zwick (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) helms actress Annie Abbott's irreverent, humor-filled solo show, Giving Up Is Hard to Do. Abbott, a veteran Broadway and L.A. stage actress who's appeared in hit shows like Transparent, Californication, L.A. Law and The X-Files, suddenly finds herself widowed in middle age, and forced to face the roller coaster ride of online dating. But coffee date by coffee date, this spirited senior perseveres, encountering an unforgettable, ruefully funny crew of oddball characters. Abbott's performance at Sherman Oaks' Whitefire Theatre brings her past vividly to life, and connects it seamlessly to her present.
This event is recommended for those ages 17 and older and runs 70 minutes. There’s no intermission.
