Below are a few quotes from our corps members about their experience:
“Thanks so much for this opportunity… I really enjoyed the play!”
– Stacy Kravitz, corps member in the Bronx.
“I truly appreciated the opportunity to see “Everyday A Visitor” by playwright and City Year supporter Richard Abrons. I thought the play was very funny and well-written…One of City Year’s values is “Belief in the Power of Young People.” We aim to defy stereotypes about students and recent graduates by showing that we can be leaders and change-makers. After viewing “Everyday A Visitor,” I now have a belief in the power of old people!”
– Matthew Bedrick, Visitor Program Project Leader/Senior Corps Member
“The play reminded me of the quirky humor of my own grandparents. I loved it.” – Jackson Goodman, Math Project Leader/Senior Corps Member
About the show: “Every Day a Visitor is a rousing and heart-felt comedy set in a Jewish retirement home in the Bronx. Time is of the essence for its cranky residents, and while the walls of the home close in on them, they realize they have been forgotten. But, they don’t sit still for long! They decide to change their perspective, and empower themselves by becoming characters like Fiorello H. La Guardia, Bella Abzug, and Alan Greenspan, which leads them to renewed vitality, imaginative relationships and some undeniable fun!”
