At that time, the Playback focus, as an event, was to present a program using audience participation and theater to work toward better understandings between all individuals. Playback Theater, which operates as a non-profit organization, uses music and improvisational theater to transform the stories of the audience into theater. From that performance the Long Island troupe was created.

But astrology is much deeper than what could ever been written about sun signs alone. Have you ever wondered: - Why are my two friends who are both Libras vastly different? - Why do I usually attract Geminis? - Why is my Aries boyfriend so distant? - Why have I been told that my rising sign more important than my sun sign? - Why is my moon sign so important for compatibility? Finally, a place to star. This class is for beginners to learn basic (and I do mean BASIC) Astrology.
