Shut Up and Dance

Award-Winning Solo Show Opens at Working Stage Theater for Thursday Night
Six-Week Run Beginning on April 25, 2013

Los Angeles, CA – Stand-Up Comic/Actress/Dancer STELLA VALENTE struts her
stuff in the award-winning, hilarious and heart felt solo show, “SHUT UP
AND DANCE!,” with a six-week Thursday night run at the Working Stage
Theater opening on April 25th.

Created by Valente, “Shut Up and Dance!” is an intimate look at one
artist’s battle with anger, love and the power of dance. This physical,
energetic and autobiographical show, deemed ‘funny and poignant,’ weaves
together Valente’s unabashed life lessons, her search for love and the
correlation of dance, especially Argentine Tango as a metaphor. From her
‘tough-love’ Queens upbringing to a run-in with the law to her adventure to
Buenos Aires, Valente’s stories range from gut-busting to tear-jerking
tales that everyone can relate to but don’t often talk about. Learning to
“shut up” and listen to the silence in both dancing and life becomes a
significant and recurring melody throughout her journey.

“Shut Up and Dance!” is directed by Paul Messinger of Fierce Backbone
Theater and is structured like a full 3-act play. The show and Valente have
received praise from critics and audiences alike, winning ‘Best of’ at The
Hollywood Fringe 2012 and ‘Best One Person Play’ by The Beverly Hills
Outlook.

Valente is excited to bring her show to the masses, commenting "I bear it
all -- I just hope my mother still talks to me after she sees it."

Valente works both in front of the camera as an actress and stand-up
comedienne and behind the scenes as writer, producer and director. She
graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Film and
Television Production and then trained further at the Beverly Hills
Playhouse with the renowned Milton Katselas and at the well-respected New
York Academy for the Dramatic Arts. Valente grew up in Queens, NY and after
living everywhere for a short while, even a convent in Asolo, Italy, this
funny lady made her way to Los Angeles.

Stella Valente is represented by Avalon Artists.
