One of our favorite blogs on the internet is Cast and Loose. They have created, in their words "a curated collection of breakdowns, parodied with the hopes of shedding a humorous light on some very serious issues in the Entertainment Industry: misogyny, racism, ageism, body shaming, heteronormativity, and objectification to name a few." For the 5th time, they're bringing their brand of humor and activism to Joe's Pub. Better yet, a portion of all proceeds will benefit The Alliance For Inclusion In The Arts.

A Little About The Show
America! Where our president ridiculed the disabled, publicly humiliated Miss Universe for her weight, and bragged about sexual assault. And where did he come from? The Entertainment Industry! Returning for its 5th installment at Joe’s Pub, CastAndLoose Live! features stars of the stage and screen bringing real, verbatim casting notices to life. Join us this evening for ageism, ableism, fat shaming, transphobia, and everything breakdowns have to say about the body. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Alliance for Inclusion in the Arts. As always, come laugh at the problem while funding the solution.
