Ageless Wonders: When did I become a Senior? A musical dramedy
Ageless Wonders: When did I become a Senior? is a triumphant one woman performance designed to enlighten people on aging in modern times under the direction of Best National Solo Artist Jessica Lynn Johnson. This musical/dramady ultimately aims to give new perspectives, and will shed light on the benefits of entering the club of senior wonderhood and how ageism in our society is rampant yet there is evidence that it is beginning to wane. Throughout a one hour performance, this musical could evoke some tears, guarantee smiles and even laughter. The play has a catchy original score written by Roland Mousaa & Mindy Fradkin, both of whom had the privilege of working and befriending the late great Pete Seeger.
Ageless Wonders:When did I become a Senior? features Mindy Fradkin, the writer, actress and singer with a comic flair. Her story is unique yet strikes a universal chord. When Fradkin made the realization that she joined “this club” as a senior “wonder,” she began to research it and found information that inspired her as profound and helpful, and wanted to share it with others. Mindy went to the extent of finding metaphysical solutions which embodies who she is. Ms. Fradkin realized that sharing her story through edu-tainment would be a help to others.
Mindy Fradkin has always wanted to make a difference in the world. She is the founder of The Smile Revolution which raises conscious awareness to the healing power of a genuine smile. Mindy & Roland have produced an uplifting album of songs about the importance of a genuine smile that will help welcome seniors into this “club.”
Fradkin plans to stay in the forefront of a movement to transform how aging is perceived nationally. “You can still smile with crow's feet and silver hair even with age discrimination being rampant in our country. We can look forward to the spiritual growth, maturity, more wisdom, and self acceptance that will come,” Mindy says.
As an example of someone who embodies her view, Mindy introduces Anthony Mancinelli in a two-minute video, a 106 year young active barber, who is in Ripley's Believe it or Not, still drives, lives alone, works full time, and is a true ageless wonder.

“Had a great time at Mindy's One Woman Show called “Ageless Wonders.” It was an intimate, humorous and surprisingly poignant musing on the pros and cons of finding yourself a “senior citizen.”
Maureen Daye Pietoso, Marketing and Publicity Director of Laurel Canyon Records:
“Loved Princess Wow's show! It was one for the books! Amazing! She shared her own story about being an ageless wonder. I hope she goes on tour. She and Roland Mousaa wrote the music and we were glad to be there with friends!”
