Getting to Know LTYM NYC Cast Member – Eleni N. Gage!

April 12, 2017

Eleni is a turn-paging novelist and journalist whose writing credits include Travel + Leisure, The New York Times, and a bean-obsessed, healthy eating article in the Spring issue of Martha Stewart Living (just to name a few). We are very happy Eleni is bringing her candid and delectable storytelling to our stage! Here’s more from Eleni… What makes you feel accomplished? Throwing a good party (I’m still high on the thrill of pulling off our wedding in Greece—almost seven years ago). Or when everyone in my family eats the same dish I cooked for dinner. It happens maybe five times a year. Sad, but true. How would your friends describe you? Small but effective. What word best describes you? Delighted. What are you most thankful for?  My people. When they’re not driving me crazy—and even when they are—they make life so much fun. Come party with Eleni and the rest of the cast! […]

Getting to Know LTYM NYC Cast Member – Mariana Goycoechea!

April 10, 2017

Mariana is a world-traveler, lover of languages, teaching Spanish and French while pursuing her doctorate in French Renaissance – and she is an undeniable storyteller! Here’s more from Mariana… What makes you feel accomplished?  I honestly don’t know how to answer this. I would say my feelings of accomplishment depend on my day to day. As an educator in higher education, I would say that holding space in a healthy way for my students as their professor and mentor, while also working towards being a best person for myself and others, is the biggest accomplishment. How would your friends describe you? They would say that I’m dramatic and emotional! I’m a bleeding heart who cries at the drop of a penny, but my friends would also say that I’m a good listener, caring, and funny as hell. Also, smart. I think they would say that I’m smart. What word best describes you? Empathic. What are you most thankful for? […]

Getting to Know LTYM NYC Cast Member – Emily Myers!

March 29, 2017

It’s no secret, Emily’s got a great accent. And it pairs nicely with her great story. But, honestly, accent or no, her eloquent and humorous storytelling placed us squarely in her world, and landed her a spot in this year’s LTYM NYC performance. Here’s more about Emily… What makes you feel accomplished?  I think what makes me feel accomplished has changed through the decades. In my twenties, it was my career as a radio journalist. As a reporter you are as good as your last broadcast and there were so many great moments. My thirties were all about my children. I’m very proud of my three sons and occasionally I feel like I do a good job of parenting them. Now, in my forties, as I try to step back into my career, and redress the balance of work and family, I think my writing is getting stronger. Each piece that touches someone […]
