Carmen Cusack, who was Tony-nominated last season for her performance in the new musical Bright Star, will star in Gulfshore Playhouse's upcoming production of Karen Siff Exkorn's Do This, which will play the Florida venue January 7-28, 2017, in Naples, FL.

Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall) will direct the one-woman world premiere, which is produced by the Playhouse through special arrangement with Broadway producer Ken Davenport.

Do This, according to press notes, “follows one woman’s journey through marriage, motherhood and a maze of obstacles as she navigates an unexpected life-changing experience. Do This is a solo tour-de-force that celebrates the trials and triumphs of the human spirit and the resilience of the human soul.”

Do This was a semi-finalist in the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s 2015 National Playwrights Conference. Exkorn’s multi-media performance piece, Body & Soul, was performed at the Gene Frankel Theatre in NYC, and her solo play, Who’s They, was performed at the Knitting Factory in NYC.
