Bringing this show to NYC is a dream come true! As an actress and writer, this new chapter allows me to step into the spotlight of my own creation. My goal is to take the audience ‘on a trip’ into the heart of the hippie world of love and hope that we all longed for then and still long for today. Over the past few years, we have all gone through a traumatic experience. I hope that by opening up and telling this story now, it will resonate with each person, reminding them of the strength that lies within us all.” – Lin Shaye, writer and star of Tripping on Life.
