Olympia Dukakis, Natasha Lyonne & Carrie Preston Are Joining Forces for IHI Therapy Center’s ‘Love, Yourself’ Gala


What advice would you give your younger self? Would you tell yourself to pick a different college? A different circle of friends? Or would you simply want to know that no matter how confused or alone you may feel, that everything will be OK.

That’s the idea behind IHI Therapy Center’s 40th anniversary celebration gala: “Love, Yourself.” On Monday evening, some of the city’s top celebrities including Olympia Dukakis, Carrie Preston (The Good Wife), Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock), Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black), Lea DeLaria (OITNB), Alysia Reiner (OITNB), Zachary Booth (Damages), Wade Davis (The Out List), Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones), Brian Murray, and Halley Feiffer (Bored to Death) will perform emotional readings from Sarah Moon and James Lecesne‘s The Letter Q, a collection of letters written by award winning queer artists to their younger selves.

Directed by Sherri Eden Barber, the one-night performance will take place at the New York Theater Workshop (79 East 4th St). To purchase tickets or learn more about the project, visit www.ihi-therapycenter.org.
