StillerAmy Stiller in Just Trust.

Amy Stiller  is "relatively" famous...meaning she is the sister to box office topper Ben Stiller and the child of comedy legends Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara. Just Trust is Amy's semi-autobiographical comedy about a spiritually desperate woman trying to emotionally survive as the only non-famous person in a very famous family. Can she reconnect to the magic of her childhood and find her own creative path, in a culture that values celebrity above everything else? Can she learn to...just trust...that she is enough? 

Following the show we will go out for a late lunch / early dinner at The Royal Dynasty Chinese restaurant, 1763 Empire Blvd which is before Bay Rd (only 12 minutes from the JCC) . Please let Marty Nemeroff know you are coming by August 20 (mnemerof@rochester.rr.com or 265-3389)

Tickets are $15 per person, and  will need to be prepaid by check ,made out to the JCC & sent to Marty Nemeroff 1060 Railway Crossing Webster, NY 14580 no later than August 22
