Is it showbiz or psychotherapy? "Both!" said Dr. Stella Resnick, whose cabaret show PsyCafe with Dr. Stella Resnick will be performed for four Wednesday evenings only, April 28, May 5, May 12 and May 19 at the Masquer's Cabaret in W. L.A. Curtain time is 7.30 PM.
Resnick, a psychologist and author, has built an enthusiastic following over the past three years hosting Talk Theatre in local venues. PsyCafe is a revised and refined version of that show.
"The objectives of this evening of meaningful entertainment are to have a good time while questioning our assumptions about relationships with an intelligent and articulate group of friends and strangers," said Resnick. "Two seats on stage are an open invitation for any individual couple, two friends or relatives, to come up and get a little free 'cafe therapy.' Audience participation is strictly voluntary."
Resnick is the author of "The Pleasure Zone: Why We Resist Good Feelings & How to Let Go and Be Happy." A psychologist in private practice, she has appeared on "Oprah," "Leeza" and "CNN Live."
