    Whatsinthemirror? Presents

    AUSTIN, TX – Whatsinthemirror? is pleased to bring you The Counseling Session playing July 6-10 2016 on stage at Santa Cruz Studio Theater. This intense and explosive show written by Whatsinthemirror? founder Tarik Daniels takes us on a journey as we explore the concepts of love, mental health, the Church, and the consequences of our actions through the life of Lionel, a young college student, who is struggling with his blossoming sexuality and the devastation of a broken heart. The Counseling Session takes us to a place of understanding and completion, just to remind us that there is always a price to pay for our actions.

    ” Love is Real. Mental health is Real. The pain of a broken heart is Real. Abomination of the church is definitely Real. …” —Tarik Daniels

    Starring CAMERON “MERCURY” MCKNIGHT, MAE ROSE HILL, NETONYA CLAYTON and WILLIAM BOYLES. Directed by award winning director LUIS A. ORDAZ GUTIERREZ (B. Iden Payne-Best Director 2015).Co-Founder and current artistic and executive director of ProyecoTeatro.

    “It’s a director’s dream to have a script so simple in its actions, yet so intense in its narrative, because every minute is spent breaking down the psychology of the lives portrayed in this story. Every minute is spent molding humans straight from words, lines, and phrases that then become raw emotions” says Gutierrez. “The Counseling Session challenges the most uncomfortable conversations in the LGBTQ community of color through its honest portal of the human experience.”

    Tickets are $15 for general admission .You may purchase tickets on-line at Performances are Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8:00 pm, and Sunday at 4:00 pm. Santa Cruz Studio Theater is located at 1805 East 7th street.

    The Counseling Session is a fiscally sponsored project of Austin Creative Alliance.
