“Living The Shuffle” is the amazing journey of actor, writer, director, and filmmaker, Robert Townsend.

Townsend, a natural born storyteller, takes you on a show biz rollercoaster ride of ups and downs from the dangerous streets of Chicago, to performing Julius Cesar at a pimp convention in New York City. He also takes you behind the scenes of giving birth to his first film “Hollywood Shuffle” done with a miracle and a credit card.  Townsend gives you a front row seat sharing life lessons he has learned along the way.  Although sometimes the lessons are dangerous, he always lands on his feet.

This workshop of Townsend’s one-man show returns Townsend to his roots in the theater where he showcases his uncanny ability to do impressions and perform a cast of characters like you’ve never seen before.

It’s a magical and almost unbelievable journey of a little boy from a tough hood that climbed a mountain in Hollywood. This edgy, raw and funny show will inspire  and give hope to the dreamer in anyone.

Robert will be workshopping his one man show “Living The Shuffle” from Sept. 22-24 at the Barrow Street Theatre in New York. for more info contact www.barrowstreettheatre.com or call 866-811-4111.
