    Gutless & Grateful (1)

    Following sold-out runs at The Triad NYC, The Bijou Theatre, United Solo Festival, Barrington Stage Company (Tony-Award winning William Finn’s Cabaret Series) and a nationwide tour from Washington D.C. to Hawaii, the captivating Amy Oestreicher will bring her hit one-woman musical Gutless & Grateful back to NYC at the internationally acclaimed Metropolitan Room on February 5th and 25th, 2017.  Through interwoven song and dialogue, performer Amy Oestreicher shares a primal piece of live-storytelling – weaving her near death experience and inspiring perspective with an eclectic set of songs, comedically highlighting struggles, triumphs and “beautiful detours” in her life.

    “Gutless & Grateful is not a story about a victim, but one of a survivor. Amy has channeled the pain of her experiences into something far greater.” – Michelle Alerte (Woman Around Town)

    Nominated for “Best Theatre Debut” in 2012 (Broadway World), and Bistro Awards Top Pick, and featured in Huffington Post, Gutless & Grateful, takes audiences on a musical journey of determination, grit and “guts” as Oestreicher shares her humor, her strength, and her soaring vocals with the world. Oestreicher’s script was inspired by the thousands of  journal entries she kept over the six years she endured unable to eat a morsel of food or drink a drop of liquid.  Co-conceived by Oestreicher and musical director David Brunetti, the show is directed by Broadway-veteran Jerold Goldstein, also on piano.  “Gutless” also features the song “Still Alive” which was written for Amy by acclaimed composer David Friedman with lyrics by TV personality and lyricist Kathie Lee Gifford, after she appeared on NBC’s TODAY Show in 2011.

    “One part moving testament to human indomitability, the other a thoroughly satisfying evening of song. While each element is strong enough to stand on its own, combined they illuminate and enhance each other. Rarely have I seen narration and song so artfully meshed, and Oestreicher’s likeability, good humor, interpretive skill, and manifest commitment to what she is saying and singing make us not only understand her story, but also feel it on a very deep level.”

    -Roy Sander (critic for

    Amy had ambitious plans for Broadway, until she abruptly developed a blood clot the week before her high school senior prom. After being rushed to the hospital, her stomach exploded in the operating room, and after both her lungs collapsed, she nearly died. After waking up from a coma several months later, she was told she no longer had a stomach, and it was unknown whether she would ever be able to eat or drink again . After 27 surgeries and six of the past ten years unable to drink a drop of fluid, Amy’s digestive system was miraculously reconstructed and she learned that the human spirit heals through “gutsiness”, gratitude, and an overabundance of humor.
    amy.1-001Amy Oestreicher is an artist, author, speaker for RAINN and TEDx, writer for The Huffington Post, award-winning health advocate, actress and playwright, eagerly sharing the lessons learned from a decade of trauma through her writing, performance, art and speaking.  Amy’s story and show have appeared on the TODAY Show, CBS, WNBC Cosmopolitan, Seventeen Magazine, Unmistakable Creative, Good Housekeeping, among others, and her writings have appeared in over 70 notable lifestyle, wellness, and arts publications.  Amy’s “beautiful detour” inspired her to create the #LoveMyDetour movement, a campaign inspiring people to flourish because of, rather than in spite of challenges- also the subject of her TEDx Talk and upcoming book, My Beautiful Detour.

    Oestreicher’s story is always inspirational and surprisingly funny.” – Paulanne Simmons (Times Square Chronicles)

    Come for a moving night of song, stories and possibilities, all in a 70-minute musical comedy. Gutless & Grateful is no ordinary one-woman show, but a powerhouse production that leaves the audience in tears, laughing hysterically, and savoring every last bite as though it were their very first.

    Amy Oestreicher in Gutless & Grateful plays the Metropolitan Room on 34 W 22nd St, New York, NY 10010, on February 5th at 7pm and February 25th at 4pm.  Doors open 30 minutes beforehand.

    Tickets start at $24 and there is a two drink minimum.. Tickets and information are available at and by calling (212) 206-0440

    Patricia Milton's new drama, "Without Mercy" will premiere at the Phoenix Theatre in San Francisco, February 24 - March 25, 2017. It is being presented by the award-winning Off Broadway West Theatre Company.

    Learning that her missing daughter has been murdered, an anguished mother battles her surviving daughter to make sure the killer receives the death penalty. Their clash of deep-seated beliefs causes long-held resentments to erupt around the family's tragedy. Their legal advocate swears he's neutral, but his actions contradict his claim. Challenged by a terrible trade-off, the three struggle to reach a resolution.

    This play was written at the Arts Letters + Numbers artists residency in Averill Park, NY, and was developed at Central Works Writers Workshop. We just went through a difficult election and voted as a state to speed up the executions of those condemned to death in California, so the subject matter is timely.

  • 15 Jan 2017 7:00 PM | Elana Gartner
    Elana Gartner's "Daughter" will receive a staged reading at UpTheater Company in New York on Sunday, January 15th at 7pm. This script was a PlayLab Selection for the Great Plains Theatre Conference in 2013. 

    When sixteen year old Robyn’s biological mother, Millie, contacts her on Facebook, Robyn tries to ignore her. A straight-A student with her hopes set on Harvard, Robyn has been happy with her adoptive parents and adoptive brother; she has not wanted to find her biological parents. But Millie is persistent and finally tells her why: she needs a bone marrow transplant within a week or she will have to go into an experimental trial program.

    Robyn embarks on an uncomfortably fast investigation about Millie and her origins, often keeping secrets and ignoring responsibilities to do so. When Robyn concludes that she wants to get tested to be a match, she must convince her adoptive parents and possibly face the reality that Millie could die without her help.

    Please join the East Coast Premiere at the Holy Trinity Church, 20 Cumming Street, New York, NY 10034.

    Amy will be performing and speaking on spirituality and resilience at the 2017 JOFA Conference on January 14th at Columbia University. She will also be performing original songs and excerpts from her one-woman musical, Gutless and Grateful. More information at

    The Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance (JOFA) is the leading organization advancing social change around gender issues in the Orthodox Jewish community. JOFA expands the spiritual, ritual, intellectual and political opportunities for women within the framework of halakha (Jewish law), by advocating meaningful participation and equality for women in family life, synagogues, houses of learning and Jewish communal organizations to the full extent possible within halakha. The core JOFA belief is that fulfilling this mission will enrich and uplift the entire Jewish people.

    The JOFA Conference, held every three years, is the premier destination for over 1,000 supporters of Orthodox feminism to celebrate, strategize, share best practices, and set the direction for innovation and impact in the organized Jewish community. The JOFA Conference explores the intersection of our feminist ideals with critical facets of our halakhic lives and religious experiences, including race, sexuality, family, and political structures. This year’s theme “Charting Your Course,” focuses on empowering individuals and communities to navigate paths to make real progress.

    I'll be bringing Gutless & Grateful, my comedic yet poignant musical story about personal triumph over unimaginable odds to the Metropolitan Room on February 5th and March 26th at 7pm. Through interwoven song and dialogue, I share a primal piece of live-storytelling - a powerful message that it's possible to stay hungry for life...even after an exploding stomach.  The show also features an original song written for me by Kathie Lee Gifford and David Friedman, after I was featured on NBC's Today Show.

    (A date change, due to the second TEDx Talk I will now be delivering on February 25th.)

    Since its BroadwayWorld Best Theatre Debut-nominated performance in 2012, I've been touring the show around the country, to theatres, international conferences, and universities, as a mental health and sexual assault prevention arts advocacy program. I'd love for you to catch the show before I take it out West this Spring, and back to 54 Below on June 9th 

     Gutless & Grateful comes to the Metropolitan Room on 34 W 22nd St, New York, NY 10010, on February 5th and March 26th at 7pm. More information at or see a press release in a Word Doc.
