Ben Rimalower Has Patti Issues

"Your tie's crooked, doll."

My good friend Ben Rimalower is afflicted with an ailment known as Patti Issues, "a condition wherein the patient experiences a transference of love he didn't receive in his childhood onto actress and singer Patti LuPone." Luckily for him there is hope yet! You can help Ben by celebrating his road to recovery at the one year anniversary of his solo play fittingly titled "Patti Issues" at the Duplex in New York City (61 Christopher Street, New York, NY 10014 - on 7th Avenue).
