The New York Comedy Festival presents SUE COSTELLO from the Oscar Winning Film, â€œThe Fighterâ€
Â â€œMinus 32 Million Wordsâ€ at The Creek and The Cave
Â Thursday, November,8th at 7:00 p.m.
NY NY â€“November 8th, 2012 â€“The New York Comedy Festival is proud to present Sue Costello, acclaimed comic, actor and her one-woman show â€œMinus 32 Million Wordsâ€ at The Creek and The Cave 10-93 Jackson Ave Long Island City NY.
The showâ€”alternately hilarious and heartbreakingâ€”tracks Costelloâ€™s life growing up in Dorchester, Massachusetts and how she developed a desperate need for fame and money, only to realize that without trust in herself, nothing could make her happy.
Rave reviews have poured in for Minus 32 Million Words, â€œNot many people have the charisma, stamina, or the anecdotes to sustain a 1 1/2hr show alone, Sue Costello does it sans props, costumes or music in the play thatâ€™s worth 32 Million Wordsâ€ says The Boston Metro
The Boston Herald called the show â€œpowerful, thanks to Costelloâ€™s frank charisma and her ability to mingle humor with tragedy,â€ and the Patriot Ledger mused that â€œCostello rivets the audience with a comicâ€™s gift for delivery and wit and an actressâ€™ skill with emotion.â€
Kristen Johnston called the show â€œbrilliant and agonizingly funny,â€ and Kevin Nealon commented, â€œGreat characters, great writing and hilarious delivery.Â She is the next Whoopiâ€¦only not black.â€Â Patricia Clarkson agreed, "Sue Costello is an incredible talent â€“ I LOVED this show!"
As to the origin of the showâ€™s title, Costello explains: â€œThe show is called Minus 32 Million Words because I read an article in the New York Times that said that poor kids hear 32 million less words than rich kids and thought, I want to bust through those limitations and tell my story, even if â€œtheyâ€ say I donâ€™t have the words. â€œWhen my T.V show "Costello" got canceled, I thought, don't stop Sue, don't ever quit and nowÂ I'm so excited to be performing the show as part of the New York Comedy Festival.Â The show is about going for your dreams and second chances, all while remembering where you came from.Â Itâ€™s life imitating art,â€ adds Costello
