Our weird is our strength. That’s the message of Mallory Whitfield's new one-person show Embrace Yr Weird, which premieres on Friday, July 19 in New Orleans at The Twilight Room at The AllWays Lounge & Cabaret (2240 Saint Claude Avenue). This one-night only show offers a sequin-filled and inspirational perspective on how we can spread joy, hope, allyship and loving kindness for a kinder, more inclusive world. In a world that can often feel overwhelmed by negativity, bullying, and violence, Embrace Yr Weird offers empowering alternatives, delivered in an entertaining show that's part stand-up, part TED Talk, part puppet show, part dance party, and all fun. 20% of ticket proceeds and 100% of tips will be donated to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees.
