Adam Strauss Returns: The Mushroom Cure at Next Stage


Date & Time: 
Oct 20 2017 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Inspired by a scientific study showing that
hallucinogenic mushrooms may cure obsessive-compulsive disorder,
Adam Strauss embarked on a program of vigilante psychopharmacology. The New York Times says The Mushroom Cure, Adam’s true tale of his attempt to treat his
severe OCD with psychedelics, “…mines a great deal of laughter from disabling
pain” and Time Out New York calls it
“riveting… a true-life tour de force” and named it a Critics’ Pick.

The Mushroom Cure, this unique
theatrical experience, starring Adam Strauss and directed by Jonathan
Libman, first ran in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, garnering widespread
acclaim before being workshopped in the New York Fringe Festival. It won the
Fringe’s Overall Excellence Award for Solo Performance. The Mushroom
Cure has also been presented at NY’s Cherry Lane Theater and the Broadway
Comedy Club.

Adam Strauss is a writer and performer
based in NYC. In addition to the Fringe Overall Excellence Award, he won the
Leffe Beer International Craft Your Character Storytelling Competition. (He’s
lost too many things to mention here.) He’s also a professional stand-up
comedian, appearing nightly at many of New York’s best comedy clubs…and most of
its worst ones. Adam received his B.A. in Psychology from Brown University. He
is currently penning a memoir based on The Mushroom Cure.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $24 at the door,
available online at nextstagearts.org.

The newly-renovated, handicap-accessible Next
Stage is located at 15 Kimball Hill, Putney, VT.
