It's not an easy topic for theater: childhood sexual abuse. Yet this is precisely the focus of abuse survivor and Five Minute Follies emcee Michael Broussard's impactful Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor, an interactive one-man show that's been highly recommended by professional psychologists. Broussard creates a safe space as he shares his story, improvises and often breaks for audience feedback throughout. Every show is different, and while the subject is dark, there are many moments of humor and, most important, a message of hope and healing -- assuring members of the audience that there is indeed life after trauma, and survivors can become thrivers. This powerful show, which provides a true collaboration between artist and audience, will be performed at Philadelphia's Walnut Street Theater Studio 5.
