New York, NY, July 12, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Dane Brandt-Lubart is a 27 year old man who loves singing, performing, cooking, YouTube, and the outdoors. He also happens to be autistic. In 2015, native New Yorkers Dane and his mother Mia set out to create a show that would raise awareness about the challenges and triumphs people on the autistic spectrum experience every day. With Mia writing and producing and Dane singing and dancing, they created “My Life On The Spectrum,” a combination of recognizable pop songs combined with informative monologue. The show is performed with a full band with Dane at the helm guiding his audience on a moving, inspiring journey as they learn more about what it’s like to experience the world when you're autistic.
Since its debut at the theatre district's “Don’t Tell Mamma, the show has toured throughout the Northeast, performing at schools, theaters, and gala fund raisers. Now, "My Life on the Spectrum" comes to the Disability Pride Parade on July 15 where Dane will be a featured performer, appearing on stage at 2:20 PM.
“I always enjoy getting in front of an audience and changing the way they see autism. It’s what I love most. Whether I’m doing a show at a special education school or for an audience of neuro-typicals, it’s always a thrill to inspire others like me who are on the spectrum while teaching everyone else who we are and why we should be respected and valued.” – Dane
“It’s been incredible to create this show and do our part to raise awareness about autism. We are thrilled to bring our inspiring message to the Disability Pride Parade!” – Mia
Earlier this year, Dane set out on an ambitious project to film the entire show in front of a live audience. With the help of a small grant, Dane’s dream came true--and then some! The show was filmed at Smash Studios in NYC by four-time Emmy Award winner Michael Drucker and his team at Delusions International. Drucker also made a short documentary on Dane and the making of "My Life on the Spectrum." The DVD of the full show is slated for release in late summer. The hope is that the film will be used by schools and throughout the autism community to raise awareness across North America and internationally.
