My Life On The Spectrum: A Tuneful Rally, opening October 2015, is a one-man play combining musical performances with a personal narrative about a young man’s experience being on the autism spectrum. The play focuses on the life of actor/singer/co-writer Dane Brandt-Lubart, a 27-year-old native New Yorker.
This production is both a deeply personal narrative and an example of arts as advocacy in action. Monologues give voice to the discrimination and marginalization that Dane and so many other differently-abled individuals have faced and overcome. These spoken vignettes explore themes of love and resilience, of social isolation and the process of sharing one's story through art. Featuring songs ranging in style from Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" to Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven" and Monty Python's "Always Look On The Bright Side of Life", the show is at once inspiring, honest, funny, and poignant.
My Life On The Spectrum: A Tuneful Rally has been performed in a wide range of venues including schools for both special education and typically-developing students, day programs, fundraising galas, conferences, parent groups, and community organizations.
