Life has three guarantees: you’re born, you die, and if your name is Rio, you dance on the sand. In this hour-long musical storytelling show, indie rocker and Moth Mainstage storyteller Sam Shaber takes the audience on an emotional roller coaster of laughter, tears, and catharsis, from her obsessive, starstruck adolescence to the sobering losses of adulthood, to a triumphant realization about the power of those we love.
Co-written and directed by award-winning writer/director/comedian Lynn Ferguson, Sam Shaber: Life, Death & Duran Duran garnered 5-star reviews and Pick of the Fringe at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and Pick of the Fringe, Critics' Choice and a Hollywood Producers Encore Award at the 2018 Hollywood Fringe. Sam is excited to celebrate the show's New York debut at The Tank during Ladyfest 2019.
