Most people want to have positive role models as influences in their life, especially for their children.
Yet, it is not always the positive role model who makes the biggest influence.
Polly Frost, a writer and performer, discovered as she looked back at the people in her life that even the bad role models taught her lessons. Frost is bringing what she learned to Sedona in a one-woman show, “Bad Role Models and What I Learned from Them,” to be performed at the Sedona Arts Center on Thursday, Dec. 6.
“We’re all told we need good role models and mentors, but who do we really learn the most from? In my show I take a humorous and heartfelt look at the eccentrics, oddballs and misbehaving people who have really made a difference in my life,” Frost said. “When you see somebody else’s mistakes you learn from them.”
Frost lives in New York City and has been published in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and many other magazines. She has written a book, “Deep Inside,” and a play, “The Last Artist in New York City,” that was selected for Best American Short Play in 2008-09, and has appeared on many television talk shows throughout the country.
