If you love theatre, especially Broadway theatre and the genius of Lin-Manuel Miranda, you'll love all of Rick's stories.  Rick Negrón has worked on two of theatre's greatest hits: In the Heights and Hamilton. He was selected to perform both of these shows in Puerto Rico which was quite the full circle experience because he was born and raised in that very place. He plays the role of KING GEORGE III with quite the swagger. Don't miss it!

Tricia not only survived cancer but made a movie about it. When her stage 4 breast cancer metastasized  to her brain she was faced with even more obstacles to overcome. She wanted to survive and she also wanted to become a parent with her husband Matt. Once she started pursuing that dream through surrogacy she had to answer the question: what if she wasn't around to meet her child? So she started filming the journey and rest is history. Love Always, Mom is a love story to an unborn child.  We hosted Tricia and her film Monday May 13th, 2019. But this interview was recorded December 2018.  Say hi on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/lovealwaysmomthemovie/ Link for the film and screenings https://linktr.ee/lovealwaysmomthemovie ==== THE BRAVEMAKER FILM FEST KICKS OFF THIS FRIDAY MAY 31ST, 2019!
