Capital Repertory Theater to shine a bright, red light
on heart disease in women
American Heart Association’s Circle of Red will offer health screenings, information
before “The Sisters Rosensweig” on Thursday
Albany, New York– Capital Repertory Theater will get a jump start on Friday’s National Wear Red Day when 50 members of The Circle of Red provide health screenings and heart-health information before the curtain goes up on “The Sisters Rosensweig” on Thursday, Feb. 2.
The café at Cap Rep will be illuminated red, and a red wine special will be on the menu. Staff and volunteers at Cap Rep will wear red on Thursday, and Artistic Director Maggie Mancinelli-Cahill will offer heart-healthy messages with her welcome to the audience.
“Working on ‘The Sisters Rosensweig’ has us all thinking about women’s relationships with one another,” Mancinelli-Cahill said. “I love that the Go Red for Women movement is about the power of women to come together to fight heart disease, our No. 1 health threat. I hope everyone at Thursday’s show has their blood pressure taken, commits to healthier living, and wears red on Friday, National Wear Red Day.”
“We’re excited to be spending ‘National Wear Red Day Eve’ at Cap Rep,” said Kathy Lanni, co-chair with Patty Fusco of The Circle of Red and a member of the Capital Region Advisory Board of the American Heart Association. “Circle of Red is a volunteer group that supports the American Heart Association, and we are looking forward to sharing our message of heart health with the audience at Capital Repertory Theater Thursday evening. We’re so honored that Cap Rep will help us shine a light on heart disease in women.”
Thursday night’s curtain is at 7:30 p.m. The Circle of Red will be in the lobby an hour before the show begins.
