at The Other Side of Silence

Monday, Sept 13th @ 7pm

Tickets are Free

Brooke will be playing Millie in this free reading produced by the The Other Side of Silence, the first professional gay theatre company in NYC. Inspired by the true story of the earliest stirrings of the American gay rights movement, madcap classic sitcom-style laughs give way to provocative drama as two “All-American” couples are forced to stare down the closet door.

This play is an actor's dream, a director's challenge and an audience's delight. ...two actresses -- Susan Bigger (Alberta) and Brooke M. Haney (Dee Dee) are perfect. - The Edge Boston 

“Ms. Haney brings physical strength and emotional vulnerability to this challenging role.” - New York Theatre Review

“Kiss Me Or Cut Off My Head is a sensitive portrayal of the physical, emotional, and often economic trauma of sexual violence.” - New York Theatre Review
