The Studio@620 offers a variety of events, but very few events contain as much inherent variety as this unique one man performance! In "My Life and How I Pretended to Live It", Peter Suarez presents an anecdotal, musical, and physically thrilling evening of theatrical variety. The show has been described as " a bus full of characters, but when it stops only the driver gets off"-- to find out exactly what that means you'll have to come see for yourself - expect the unexpected!
"I most enjoy people that revere everything,....yet believe nothing, especially oneself,
is beyond ridicule".
