Running: AMOK Ends Capital Fringe Run with a Bang with Support from Local Female Entrepreneurs!
The last weekend of Running: AMOK in this year’s Capital Fringe Fest ended with two packed houses full of local celebrities, bloggers and mothers who shared that the play resonated with them.
Kia Stevenson-Haynes, mother of two young sons, said after Sunday’s performance,
“…I’m speechless. The story touched such a note with me and the music…I was really blown away! I only wish I had gone to see it earlier so I could have seen it again! If you do put the play on again, please let me know. I will be bringing lots more people.”
The audience this past weekend was filled with female entrepreneurs and creatives. In the audience was Editor-in-Chief, Kimberly “Butta” Hines of the nationally-recognized online music magazine Soulbounce, award-winning singer and mother Dee Stone, Jessica Solomon, founder of Spark Creativity— the organization that produces the quarterly series Chispa, and Shonda Goward, founder of First Generation University. Also in the audience was blogger Faith Dow, Risikat Odeyi, owner of Lil So So Productions, an entertainment group based in DC, Evelyn Bandoh of EAB Creative Planning Services and activist and spoken word artist Chioma Oruh who is expecting her first child next month.
