Whether you’re divorced, married or single we can all relate to the heartbreak and fury one in every two married couples are facing these days. One thing to keep in mind is that it’s ‘better to be mad than sad’ — as Ruthe Ponturo, creator and co-producer of Divorce — The Musical, says.
After a blissful, 34-year marriage Ponturo had her life turned upside down the day her husband unexpectedly told her that he no longer wanted to be married to her. She was left in complete shock with many thoughts running through her mind: Is he having an affair? Is there a younger woman? Is this just a part of his mid-life crisis? Instead of spiraling into depression, getting plastic surgery or wallowing in self pity, Ruthe made the bold choice to express her boiling emotions through comedic songs.
Partnering up with musical director, John Thomas Fischer, they created ‘Divorce — The Musical’: a cabaret show which showcases Ponturo’s “get on with life” attitude through a variety of hilarious songs all from different genres. The musical offers something for everyone, especially an opportunity to laugh until you cry.
